UGA secured the state’s No. 1 package deal on Sunday night.
Jenkins County High School teammates Jonathan Taylor and James DeLoach both committed to UGA.
Taylor is a 6-foot-4, 325-pound defensive tackle and a candidate to be ranked as the Georgia’s No. 1 overall college football prospect for 2012. He’s only 16 years old, with his next birthday five months away.
DeLoach is 6-3, 265 pounds and can play defensive end or linebacker. Both said all along that they were going to be a “package deal” and play on the same football team on college.
“Yes, it’s UGA,” Taylor told the AJC. “We picked Georgia because it’s a good place with good coaches that are good people. It’s not too far away from home. The place just stood out to us.”
Both players made unofficial visits to UGA over the weekend, meeting with coach Mark Richt. They picked UGA over runner-up Florida
