Josh Harvey-Clemons Commits And Finally Signs To Georgia Over Florida

Josh Harvey-Clemons, the No. 31 rated recruit according to Rivals, committed to Georgia, announcing the news on ESPNU on National Signing Day 2012, but did not sign with the Bulldogs until Thursday. Harvey-Clemons, who played for Lowndes High in Valdosta, chose Georgia over Florida and Florida State.

Harvey-Clemons' relationship with Georgia defensive coordinator Todd Grantham may have been the leading factor in his commitment. Harvey-Clemons cited Grantham's track record with putting players in the NFL as his most important attribute.

Harvey-Clemons was the second-highest athlete in the Rivals rankings, trailing only Eddie Williams, who is an Alabama commit. He joins a Georgia squad that has made a resurgence in recent years under eternally embattled Mark Richt, and adds to a linebacking corps that already had Jarvis Jones in it.

The long recruiting battle for his services is finally over. Despite being unable to secure his Grandfather's signature on his LOI yesterday, he was able to this morning. Meaning that Harvey-Clemons is officially a Bulldog. Which in the end, is what he chose. Florida could have used "JHC," certainly, but was always looking at an uphill battle in terms of getting him out of the Peach State.
