Justin Fields, nation’s No. 1 2018 recruit, commits to UGA over FSU


At his Kennesaw, Ga., high school Friday morning, Justin Davis announced toward the end of a homecoming pep rally that he has verbally committed to attend Georgia and play his college football for the Bulldogs.  The 6-3, 221-pound 2018 recruit also had Auburn, Florida State and LSU in his Final Four.

Jacob Eason, a 2016 signee, was the No. 5 player in the country and the No. 2 pro-style quarterback who started his true freshman season as well as the opener before going down with an injury.  A four-star 2017 signee, Jake Fromm was the No. 3 pro-style quarterback in this year’s class and was thrown into the starting fire immediately after Eason’s injury.
