ATHENS - Terry Godwin and Rico McGraw can't sign with Georgia until next year, but in the meantime they can make the program feel good about its future.
Godwin, rated a five-star prospect for the 2015 class by several recruiting sites, committed to Georgia on Saturday morning. Godwin confirmed the commitment via his Twitter account. A junior at Callaway High School in Hogansville, the 6-foot, 165-pound Godwin is listed as an athlete, meaning he could end up on offense (receiver or tailback) or defense (secondary).
That news came two days after the commitment of Rico McGraw, the highest-rated player in Tennessee for the 2015 class. McGraw, a cornerback, is a consensus four-star prospect at Ensworth High in Nashville.
Georgia now has three commitments for next year's class. Receiver Christian Owens, a four-star prospect at Griffin High School, committed back in April.
Never miss a local story.
The news comes days after the hiring of Jeremy Pruitt as defensive coordinator. Pruitt had been recruiting McGraw for Florida State, and once he got the Georgia job Pruitt offered McGraw, who quickly committed.
Godwin, however, was the work of the holdover staff, especially assistant John Lilly.
