WR Demarre Kitt commits to UGA over Clemson

UGA-bound WR Demarre Kitt

UGA-bound WR Demarre Kitt

One of Georgia’s top football players for 2014 committed to UGA on Saturday.

WR Demarre Kitt, a 6-foot, 190-pounder from Sandy Creek High School, said he picked UGA over Clemson among his dozen scholarship offers, which also included Florida and Auburn.

“Georgia is the place I want to be, it feels like home, and I love everything about it,” Kitt told the AJC.

Kitt is UGA’s third commit for 2014, joining RB Stanley Williams of George Walton Academy and DB Nick Glass of St. Pius. Kitt and Glass are best friends.

“Nick is committed to Georgia, and that helped a little with my decision,” Kitt said.

UGA has 14 commits for 2013, including Kitt’s teammate at Sandy Creek, DB Shaq Wiggins.

Sandy Creek is the alma mater of NFL Pro Bowler Calvin Johnson, along with the state’s No. 1 prospect at WR for 2012, JaQuay Williams, who signed with Auburn.

Didn’t want or need him here on the Flats. Have fun losing four times to us during your career and then working for a Tech man for the rest of your life.

Get in early or get left out….

Yes, if you don’t commit 22 months before signing day you are running a huge risk. In fact, if I was in 5th grade right now I would strongly consider committing just to make sure.

Anybody that commits for 2014 really wants to be a Dawg and have waited for the opportunity for years. Our coaches felt they were good enough to get an offer this early and that’s good enough for me. Can’t get too excited about a 2014 recruit because there are so many things that still have to come together for him to join the team but at least he has finished the first step. He has two years to play for his high school and could get hurt, he has to make good enough grade to qualify, and he could just change his mind.

gtbob. you and tech are in a sad state. only one commit so far, and who is that? no one wants to play in your sad stadium, with stands less than half full, and dreary opposition week after week. and crime even walking to the stadium. dreary and dangerous. the only game in this state is in athens.

gtbob. i apologize for putting down the ‘institute.’ bet you never go to a home game, and i don’t blame you; danger, losing team, etc. why not come on up to athens? for some real action? but hot dogs and colas are not free. dunce.

Doug Dwag…….and the US in terrible in MATH & SCIENCE in the world. So that means getting players that can get in and stay in TECH is hard. ANY kid can find a JOKE degree at a Special Education Conference to get ot play ball, but how many ACTUALLY go PRO or get an EDUCATION? It is COLLEGE FOOTBALL. COLLEGE being the MOST important word.

A person smart enough: Quit with the same worn out crap. There was a guy sign from my high school by Tech a couple of years ago. No other school offered him because of grades. He did not make it at Tech but Tech sure did recruit and sign him. BTW, he had horrible grades.

So stop with the Tech is smarter stuff. It simply is not true.

Smart, Probably because Alabama just won the national championship lol. UGA has always been on CSS replay. Alabama will have in between 90000 and 100000 fans to fill there stadium while other schools have 50000 at most. Not to mention they are one of the most storied programs in college football history. To be honest it is just a spring game, its not that important except at Michigan and Alabama.

Also i don’t see your purpose in constantly bashing UGA. Of course they have serious flaws in their program but it is a solid school. Is your point that an education from any school other than the Ivy league or ACC schools is worthless. How can you get each student who wants to go to college into these premier schools? They accept a certain amount each semester and there over a million college students in America alone. Your statements are douchy at best. If you want to know why the U.S. education sucks don’t blame UGA, blame the idiots who run this country since they set the agenda.
