Houston County junior Jake Fromm, who flipped his commitment from Alabama to Georgia, discusses his recruiting process, his senior year before leaving for Athens and the one thing he loves more than football -- duck hunting.

Jake Fromm went ahead and signed his financial-aid paperwork with Georgia during a Wednesday morning ceremony.

Fromm, a four-star quarterback at Houston County, has been committed to Georgia since early March. Fromm flipped his commitment to Georgia from Alabama.

By signing his financial-aid paperwork, Fromm is guaranteed a spot in Georgia's recruiting class of 2017.

Georgia has received the financial-aid paperwork but head coach Kirby Smart was unable to comment about him as a player during his appearance on the SEC coaches teleconference. Fromm, and all college football recruits, won't be able to sign a National Letter of Intent until signing day, which will fall on Wednesday, Feb. 1.

While Georgia is bound to Fromm with the agreement, the young quarterback could still decide to opt out and head elsewhere if he wanted. Judging by what Fromm's said to this point, that's very unlikely to happen.

Fromm has put in one of the best single seasons to date in Georgia high school football history with 3,740 yards, 39 touchdowns and nine interceptions through eight games.

In a 45-35 win over Northside last Friday, Fromm accounted for 520 passing yards, 122 rushing yards and four touchdowns.

“What an incredible football game,” Fromm told The Telegraph afterward. “It’s one that I’ll never forget. We play good when our backs are against the wall. I like being the underdog, and I’m just thankful that God blessed us with a win.”

Fromm is slated to enroll at Georgia in January and could find himself in competition with starter Jacob Eason for the quarterback job.
