Georgia State football coach Bill Curry will retire at the end of the season, but it hasn’t stopped the team on the recruiting trail.
River Bryant, a 6-foot-4, 230-pound tight end from Jackson High School, has committed to Georgia State.
Georgia State, which now has six commitments for 2013, was the first offer for Bryant, who also had interest from Auburn, Georgia Tech and a lot of smaller schools.
“I picked Georgia State because they were my first full ride offer,” Bryant told the AJC. “They’re close to home. I’m just down here in Jackson County, near Athens. It’s about 45 minutes to an hour away.
“It’s close to home, and they’re moving up to D1 next year in the Sun Belt conference. I have a great opportunity to play there, My family will be able to come down and watch me play. It was very important for me to play where my family could come watch and see me. And it has been a dream of mine since the eighth grade to play Div. I football.
“Georgia State just fulfilled all of my requirements.”
