The Georgia Bulldogs pulled off their first coup of the 2011 recruiting season when they received the scholarship papers of Kent Turene late Wednesday morning.
Turene, a 6-foot-2, 225-pound linebacker from Lauderdale Lakes, Fla., was a longtime Southern Cal commitment who decided late in the process to visit UGA. He loved his Jan. 21-22 visit and, after visiting Texas Tech this past weekend, decommitted to the Trojans. He also considered Nebraska before inking with the Bulldogs.
ESPN rates Turene as a four-star prospect. He had more than 40 scholarship offers.
