Coach Mark Richt and the Bulldogs received big-time recruiting news on Friday with the decision of Elite 11 quarterback prospect Jacob Park to commit to Georgia.

At 6-foot-3 and 197 pounds, Park is rated as the No. 8 quarterback in the nation by ESPN and the No. 7 player in the state of South Carolina.

A native of Goose Creek, Park’s commitment came quickly. The young quarterback known for his elite arm strength and more than enough mobility to keep defenses in check visited Athens and received his scholarship offer from Richt all in the past week.

Speaking of the last week, the Dawgs have been on a real hot streak. Park serves as the team’s fifth commitment this week, as well as its 10th for the 2014 class.

Georgia earned the services of this young man over a multitude of programs, including Alabama, Florida State, Notre Dame, Oklahoma State, Ole Miss and Tennessee.
