Dawgs get No. 23
After losing some key members of the secondary in the off-season for a variety of reasons, Georgia is a little short on numbers in the back end of the defense. For that reason, first year defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt has made it a priority to sign several defensive backs in the 2015 class that come in and help the Bulldogs right away.
On Friday night, Pruitt and the Dawgs received some good news as Columbia (MS) East Marion safety Johnathan Abram decided to commit to Georgia after talking it over with his family in the morning.
"I committed to Georgia] because it's a great place to be, and I love the environment," Abram told UGASports. "The coaching staff is one of the best in the country and it really just feels like home and a family."
Abram called Pruitt to give him the news.
"He was very excited and said that's the best news of the day and that he's glad that I'm part of the family now," Abram said.
Pruitt has big plans for Abram once he arrives in Athens.
"As a defensive back period, the defensive coordinator feels I can play anywhere on the field," Abram said.
Abram becomes the Bulldogs 23rd commitment in the 2015 class, a class that currently ranks 5th in the country according Rivals.com. He chose the Bulldogs over Kentucky, Louisville and Ole Miss among others.
A two-star prospect, the Mississippi native plans to enroll early at Georgia in hopes of fighting for playing time next season.
