How could UGA focus much on recruiting this week while it prepares to play the program’s biggest game in 30 years?
The Bulldogs didn’t really. This one sought out them.
It was Krenwick Sanders who initiated his commitment to UGA on Thursday.
The 6-foot-2, 180-pound wide receiver from Wayne County High School picked UGA over early football scholarship offers from Vanderbilt, South Florida and UNC.
Sanders just felt like Thursday was the right time to pledge to UGA, and went to his high school coaches to get it done.
“It was out of the blue,” Wayne County coach Jody Grooms told the AJC. “He came up to (our strength coach) and said he wanted to commit. I spoke with (UGA wide receivers coach) Tony Ball, and then (Sanders) spoke with Coach Richt. And they went ahead and finished the deal.”
Sanders is a junior, and one of three commits for UGA’s 2014 class. He makes up for the recent loss of Sandy Creek High School junior WR Demarre
