Rivals100 running back Knowshon Moreno finished his recruitment today by committing to Georgia. The Middletown (N.J.) Middletown South prospect picked the Bulldogs over offers from Florida, Maryland, Michigan, Virginia, Virginia Tech and others.
"Knowshon selected Georgia," said Middletown South assistant head coach Al Bigos. "He chose Georgia because he felt it was a better fit. I think in his mind he knew all along that was the school for him and he was very comfortable after going there last summer for camp. He drew very close to coach Richt during camp and his recruiter Rodney Garner. That was probably the biggest thing on his list, a good repertoire with the coaches."
Bigos and the rest of the Middletown South coaches wouldn't be surprised if Moreno sees the field next year for the Bulldogs.
"There's always the potential for him because he's such a good player," he said. "I don't know if that's exactly in Georgia's plans, but he can obviously push people and if he has to redshirt he will and understands that."
What kind of player is Georgia getting?
"He's a very unselfish player despite his numbers," he said. "He's all about being a great teammate and doesn't want the ball every play. He also does the things a lot of kids his age don't even think about doing like blocking. He just wants to make others better around him."
Middletown South head coach Steve Antonucci added a final note about the 5-foot-11, 205-pounder's commitment.
"He's real comfortable with Georgia and I think they made him feel like part of their family and that was important to him," he said. "He got a real good vibe from coach Richt and that helped seal the deal."
Moreno is rated the No. 73 player in the country, No. 10 running back and No. 3 player in New Jersey.
