Georgia's run on 2015 commitments continued Thursday afternoon after four-start tight end Jackson Harris announced he is going to be a Bulldog during a ceremony as his school.
"I'm excited to announce my commitment to the University of Georgia," Harris said on an ESPN Webcast.
After being stuck on nine commitments for several weeks, Harris becomes the Bulldogs' third in the past 36 hours and 12th overall following Wednesday's announcements by cornerback DeAndre Baker and athlete Gary McCrae.
The 6-foot-5, 245-pounder is expected to be the only tight end taken by Georgia for the Class of 2016.
A native of Columbia, Tenn., Harris chose the Bulldogs over Alabama and Vanderbilt after narrowing his list down from the approximately 40 offers he held.
"He's a big, physical tight end who can be an inline guy and work the middle of the field for them," Rivals National Recruiting Analyst Mike Farrell said. "He can be a good blocker at the next level with his mentality and I guy I can see moving the chains a lot. He needs to work on his agility, but he is a tough kid to tackle."
Harris plans to enter Georgia as an early enrollee.
"The school is a great fit and I really like what Coach (Mark) Richt is doing up there," Harris said. "I like the way he carries himself and the way he does things."
More to come.
