The Plant-to-UGA pipeline? S Paris Bostick (247sports.com)

Tampa’s Plant High School has been very good to UGA, sending along players such as QB Aaron Murray and TE Orson Charles.

UGA added another one from the Florida powerhouse on Monday when safety Paris Bostick committed to UGA over Arkansas, according to multiple reports.

Bostick is the third safety of UGA’s 2013 ever-growing recruiting class, along with Newnan’s Tray Matthews and Kell’s Quincy Mauger –who committed at Dawg Night.

UGA now has 25 commitments for its 2013 football recruiting class, and could sign around 34 total.

The 6-foot-2, 220-pouned Bostick was one of the most outstanding performers at Dawg Night, according to 247sports National Recruiting Analyst Rusty Mansell:

“At Dawg Night, Paris was probably the most [electrifying] player there, other than Rico Johnson. He continued to make plays all night long. He’s bigger than you think. He has great size at safety, and was making plays – intercepting passes or making pass breakups. Then he was just as impressive on offense. They lined up him at slot receiver and he made plays there, too. He’s very athletic and impressive-looking [physically] in person.

“For Georgia, his commitment adds depth. They need safety depth with this class. Paris is a guy who can play strong or free safety. After watching him at Dawg Night, he can definitely cover, and he looks physical enough to get down on the line of scrimmage and play in the box.”

Great pickup with proto-type SS size ! This guy is seriously underrated.

Remember Dawg fans………..of our current senior starters at Safety (Rambo and Williams) both were 3 star recruits too and both of them appear to have bright NFL futures.

Bostick at SS and Matthews at FS is excellent safety combo for the future. Grantham will coach them up !

@DAWGFAN

You are correct. I don’t worry about how many stars a recruit has. Now UGA needs more OL, but good to see all the DB commits.

Hold on!!!!

His ranking will move up during and after his Senior year. Kid is a really good looking player at Safety for his size. Could very easily go to ILB in college like Tree did.

Paris and Tray Matthews will make things hard for receivers in the middle of the field.

why are the coaches at Plant allowing their kids to go where they will be under-coached, under-acheive, and get a second class education…why go to loser u?

Does anyone know how the awarding of scholarships to the walk-ons will affect that number (”as many as 34″ ) quoted in the article? I thought that the only way to sign more than 25 was to have some of them count against this years class ( 2012 ), and I thought I read that after the schollies were awarded, we would be only 6 under the 85 overall limit.

@kerryb – My friend I just laugh at posters like falcon fred. It’s just called UGA envy. I credit the Bama & LSU posters on here. They let us know up front their team. A good many of the Tech posters do not, but they are easy to pick out.

Jay Woods will announce his pledge to Dawg Nation this Thursday….we definately need M. Adams, L. Tunsil, V. Bell, Kamara and Kelsey Griffin…That would be Dawg-tabulous….lmfao….

Congrats Paris. Big kid. In the mold of Thomas Davis. Could eventually grow into LB. Along with thousands of other athletes he had no interest in GIT.

Not to blow up his head too much but Bubba King said this kid would commit to the Dawgs Monday, last Friday. So I would think the Jay Woods thing is probably gonna happen

Huge kid for the safety position. If he maintians his current size, then he should be a beast in run support. If he grows, he may have to switch to LB. Either way, congrats, Dawgs.

Great pickup!! This kid is already a beast and should only get better. CTG has to be happy about this guy. The coaches at Tampa Plant HS are definitely doing it right–hats off to them and the job they are doing. Send us some more!!

falcon fred–I don’t think the falcons want you either–just Shut Up goober head–slink back down to your mama’s basement and stuff your face with fruit loops and captain crunch.

@ Falcon Fred Freeloader:

Next time you have a thought,,,,,,,,,,,,just let it go!!!!!!!!!

We will just see how UGA 3-stars Rambo(Already an AllAmerican as a junior and he will probably be drafted on his name alone) and Williams do in the NFL draft. If UGA can coach them up from 3-stars to All American/NFL status their coaches must do something right!!!!!!!

In the meantime just put a sock in it so you won’t make yourself look anymore like the Dumba$$ you are. Make that a dozen socks, okay!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I ain’t siding with Harold(actually nobody does) but I can’t find PB’s 40 time. Anybody know for sure???????????

I. am totally confident that CMR and associates make good choices regardless. If he turns out to be 60% as good as another 3-star named Thomas Davis he will be just fine!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
