Atlanta North Springs tight end Coleman Watson has been committed since last Thursday, but he decided to give his commitment a few days to stew until he went public with it.
It's public now - and he's a UGA Bulldawg.
Watson, who picked UGA over Florida, Alabama, Wake Forest, North Carolina, South Carolina and Notre Dame (offers from Wake, USC and Notre Dame), said he committed to assistant coach Rodney Garner last Thursday but wanted a few days to think things over and make sure it was the right decision.

"When you commit to Georgia, you're committed and you don't take other visits," he said.
"I was thinking that I wanted to take a few other visits, but the more I thought about it, the more that I was sure of my commitment.
"You can't beat Georgia. It's just the best situation for me and the best place for me."
Watson, a three-star player, is ranked as the No. 21 tight end in the nation. He has been playing a number of different positions this season and has only had a few passes thrown his way.
"I have only five catches and one touchdown," Watson said. "But I'm moving back to tight end this week against Tucker and I hope to get the ball a lot."
But it still has been enough for the 6-foot-6, 250-pounder to earn enough attention from the colleges and earn an offer from the Dawgs about a month ago.
And when he committed last Thursday he said a weight was lifted off his shoulders.
"I'm excited to know where I'm going," he said. "My sister goes up there and I've been there a thousand times. Coach Garner said I made a right decision."
