Keith Marshall Announces Georgia Commitment Over Clemson, Florida

Prized Georgia Bulldogs recruit Keith Marshall announced Tuesday he's committed to play for the Dawgs in 2012, not the Clemson Tigers. Also in contention were the Florida Gators, North Carolina Tar Heels, Notre Dame Fighting Irish, and South Carolina Gamecocks, according to Marshall.

UGA entered the day the favorite, but Clemson and Florida were believed to be making up ground, according to ground estimators. Adding to doubts, Georgia offered former Florida running back commit Mike Davis despite telling Marshall they were good to go for 2012 at the position.

Marshall, the top all-purpose back in the nation, could've contended for immediate playing time in Athens. That's the sort of thing everybody says about every recruit ever, but in this case, it's actually true. One-time Dream Team star Isaiah Crowell is surrounded by rumors and assumptions of every sort, and Monday Mark Richt said the starting tailback job for the Outback Bowl is up to an open competition.

Even if Crowell is able to retain his standing, it's not like the depth chart behind him is crowded.
