Hockman gives his commit
Bailey Hockman (Powder Springs, GA/McEachern) was the first quarterback to receive an offer from Georgia since Brian Schottenheimer took over as offensive coordinator.
On Friday morning, he became the first commitment for the Bulldogs in the Class of 2017 due in large part to Schottenheimer.
"Coach Schottenheimer, he's a really great coach," Hockman told UGASports. "I feel like I could fit in well in his system. He just tells me he thinks I'm a great player and wants me to go there."
Hockman, a four-star prospect, chose the Bulldogs over offers from Alabama, Louisville, South Carolina, Stanford, Tennessee and many more.
He's the second McEachern Indian to commit to the Dawgs this summer following Julian Rochester's commitment in late May. Georgia also has offers out to offensive tackle Tremayne Anchrum and wide receiver Tyler Simmons in the Class of 2016 at McEachern along wide receiver Tyler Smith, a close friend of Hockman's, in the Class of 2017.
With his decision behind him, Hockman's next job is to begin recruiting his peers to join him in Athens.
"I'll go to camps and different visits and start talking to other guys," Hockman said. "That's just something you have to do."
