Bulldogs land Blazevich

Bulldogs land Blazevich

The recruiting process has been going on for almost two years for tight end Jeb Blazevich. The four-star tight end out of North Carolina put an end to the process Tuesday afternoon when he committed to Georgia...

"I really made up my mind last week," Jeb Blazevich told Scout. "I knew where I wanted to go then, but I had to sleep on it, pray on it, and just make sure before I announced it publicly."

He was at ease and he announced on Tuesday afternoon that he is a Georgia Bulldog.

Blazevich feels good about his decision.

"I am good to go now. This is just another step in the long journey of life. I will be relaxed during my senior year and it feels good to have the recruiting process overwith. It feels great to be committed now."

It came down to six schools, Alabama, Clemson, Ole Miss, Notre Dame, Ohio State, and of course, Georgia.

Why did this 6-foot-4, 225 pound tight end out of Charlotte (N.C.) Charlotte Christian pick the Dawgs?

"It just came down to the people for me," he said. "I love the people there and I just fell in love with the coaching staff. I also love the town and it is a school I would go to with or without football. I had to separate that and Georgia is a school I would love to go to either way."

More and more prospects are committing, then de-committing these days, but Blazevich does not see that happening with him.

"I waited to commit because I wanted to make sure of my decision. The word commitment means a lot to me and it would take something crazy for that to happen with me. The coaches would have to be gone for me to think about it. My commitment is solid."

Blazevich is the No. 10 tight end in the country on Scout at this time.
