AJC on the scene as Crowell chooses UGA

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.

Florida signed 18 players and two were from Connecticut and both 3-stars, Out of all the great recruits in the state of Florida they HAD to go to Connecticut to get two 3-stars. I sure hope Georgia signs Jenkins because Florida is really waging a lot to try and get Jenkins to come to Gainesville.

If Richt wasn’t sure, The kid from Grady going to Kentucky would be in the fold. I hope he can back up the hype.What about a OL coach? any rumors?

Kind of Lackluster for Gators this year, as compared to last 2-3 years. I think FSU and Miami are racking up.

Coach MR needs to hire someone or some things to watch over every player from now til end of year.No sellin, no robberies, no fights, no this or that. Cost of this would be well worth it.
