Georgia, which has one of its strongest quarterback classes in years, sent another one to the D1 ranks on Wednesday.
Josh Dobbs, a 6-foot-3, 180-pounder from Alpaharetta High School, committed to Arizona State. He had around a dozen offers, including Boston College, Duke, Arkansas and Wake Forest.
“It was a decision by Josh and his family that was really well thought out,” Alpharetta coach Jason Dukes told the AJC. “Arizona State is a school that has his major [aeronautical engineering], and the school that is going to run a style of offense that he is used to. It’s a situation where they have a quarterback there [for two more years], and there won’t be the pressure for Josh to play right now. Although, knowing Josh’s competitive spirit, I’m sure he’ll be ready to compete as soon as he gets to Arizona State.”
Dobbs is one of the state’s top student-athletes: He has a 4.0 GPA, has perfect school attendance since kindergarten, and plays saxophone in the school band. Last year as a junior, Dobbs threw for 3,113 yards and 29 touchdowns with only 15 interceptions.
“Arizona State is getting a smart kid who is very competitive and works hard as his craft,” Dukes said. “He takes his job of being QB very seriously. He has a high football IQ and puts the hard work in.”
Georgia’s other Class of 2013 quarterbacks that have made college decisions are led by Lassiter’s Eddie Printz (UCLA), Marietta’s Anthony Jennings (LSU), Camden County’s Brice Ramsey (UGA) and Walton’s Parker McLeod (Alabama).
