Todd Gurley Commits To Georgia Bulldogs Over Clemson Tigers

Georgia gets its second major running back commitment of the 2012 cycle.

Todd Gurley, one of the top running backs in the country, has committed to the Georgia Bulldogs. Gurley stars for Tarboro (NC), and received more than 20 BCS offers. Gurley narrowed his choice down to a final four or North Carolina, Georgia, Clemson and N.C. State, ultimately narrowing it even more to UGA and Clemson.

Gurley is 6'0" and 205 pounds. He is considered a four-star prospect by most major services, and is rated as one of the top 20 backs in the country by all concerned.

Earlier in the week, Gurley had this to say to ESPN about Georgia:

UGA is a school I visited three times and I see why people say it's a great school. First of all, the food is the best and that's my favorite thing about the school. My bro Keith Marshall goes there now and that would be good to have two NC boys in the backfield representing for our state. Plus, the relationship I developed over time with (running backs) coach Bryan McClendon and coach Richt has been great. Two great coaches running a great program.

Gurley is Georgia's second star recruit at the running back position, joining Keith Marshall. Marshall is also from North Carolina.
