AJC staff writer Ken Sugiura is in Columbus where Carver High School running back Isaiah Crowell has decided to sign with the University of Georgia. For more on the decision, click here.
Crowell, rated the top running back prospect in the country, will likely complete the Bulldogs’ ballyhooed “Dream Team,” a collection of many of the best players from the state. Already Wednesday, AJC Super 11 members Ray Drew, Chris Conley, Nick Marshall and Damian Swann, have already signed letters of intent with Georgia.
At 12:45 p.m., perhaps 200 people had gathered for the 1:30 p.m. announcement, including coach Dell McGee and teammates. Projection screens showed Carver highlight clips. No fewer than six television cameras, including those from ESPNU, broadcast the decision live.
