With the excitement of the Georgia spring game taking over Bulldog nation and the anticipation of the 2012-13 season looming, things are on the up and up in Athens. Now, UGA head coach Mart Richt can put another feather in his cap starting in 2014 with his latest commitment.
Third commit for '14. RT @Dawgs247: WR Demarre Kitt has committed to UGA's 2014 class
Demarre Kitt is considered to be one of the best receivers in the class of 2014. Kitt hails from Tyrone (Ga.) Sandy Creek High School and received offers from Arkansas, Auburn, Cincinnati, Clemson, Florida, Mississippi, Mississippi State and South Carolina. To say he was a hot commodity would be an understatement. The projected 4-star recruit stands tall at 6'1" and 195 pounds. With two years remaining in high school, Kitt completed his sophomore season with 42 catches for 651 yards and 10 touchdowns.
Kitt is the third commitment of the 2014 class, joining running back Stanley Williams and Nick Glass.
The 2012, 2013 and 2014 Georgia Bulldogs recruiting classes each got boosts at Friday's Dawg Night, with the upcoming crop receiving the most potent boost. Jacksonville OT John Theus, brother of 2010 Dawg Night commit Nathan Theus, became the first five-star to commit to UGA for next season.
According to Rivals, Theus is the second-ranked tackle in the nation and the seventh-ranked player overall. As you'd expect, he already had offers from a couple dozen schools. Among players who've already committed, he's ranked behind only Florida State commit Mario Edwards.
Considering the transition Georgia has seen along its offensive line this offseason, from the graduation of Clint Boling to injuries and transfers and the onboarding of new position coach Will Friend, Theus could have a chance to make a mark soon. Adding Theus' name to the list also boosts Georgia's standing in the eyes of other targets, who may find themselves agreeing with the blue chipper that Mark Richt's seat isn't quite as hot as we've been told.
