UGA’s top football recruit will visit Notre Dame.

John Theus, the 5-star offensive tackle from Jacksonville, confirmed that he will take a recruiting trip to Notre Dame for the Oct. 22 game against Southern Cal.

“They understand that I am committed and I have been honest with them about my commitment; They know I am going to Georgia as long as Coach [Mark Richt] is there,” Theus told Chad Simmons of

Theus committed to UGA at Dawg Night prospect camp in July. His older brother, Nathan Theus, is a freshman long snapper on scholarship with the Bulldogs.

There have been rumors swirling around Theus about Notre Dame and Florida since he pledged to UGA. Theus called Richt to inform him. “Coach Richt was happy that I called to tell him about the visit, and he was happy that he did not have to lose any sleep over me visiting them.”

Within the last month, UGA has lost two commitments – Flowery Branch wide receiver CJ Curry switched from the Bulldogs to Oklahoma State and Goose Creek (S.C.) wide receiver Tramel Terry backed off his early pledge to the Bulldogs.

Here’s a breakdown of Theus by Chad Simmons, National Recruiting Analyst for “Georgia is getting one of the most college ready prospects in high school today. I truly believe that John could compete for playing time in Athens today.  He is both physically and mentally ready to step onto a college football field …  Theus is someone I have said for years has a very good shot at playing on Sundays.  He has what you look for in a five-star prospect in this business.”

It’s hard to see any validity or logic in Tech fans talking smack against UGA. I compare to UGA vs. FL which I have nothing to say until we starting beating and competing with them (FL) consistently. I know there are a lot of could of, should of, and would of’s but 1-9 is the end result. Believe, I know how it feels with our similar problem with FL, however I suggest keeping your words to your self until better days arrive, otherwise you really sound stupid.
