The Georgia Bulldogs added another big name to their 2015 commitment list with the commitment of Rivals250 wide receiver Van Jefferson on Monday. The Brentwood (Tenn.) Ravenwood prospect picked the Bulldogs over Tennessee and Ohio State, two schools that appeared to lead at different times for the 6-foot-1, 161-pounder.
Jefferson ended all suspense on Monday when he donned a Georgia cap and announced, "For the next four years, I will be playing at the University of Georgia."
"I like Coach [Mark] Richt and [wide receivers coach Tony] Ball and [offensive coordinator Mike] Bobo, what he's doing with the offense," Jefferson told Rivals.com on Friday. "I know I can go in there and make a real quick impact."
Jefferson became familiar with the Bulldogs program as a child, when his father Shawn Jefferson played for the Atlanta Falcons from 2000-02. He visited earlier this year, and thanks to the efforts of Ball, he's now in the class.
With Jefferson's commitment, Georgia now has five four-star pass catchers committed, including five-star athlete Terry Godwin, and a pair of four-star tight ends in Jackson Harris and Christian Owens.
Despite his commitment, Jefferson said last week that he still intends to take official visits this fall.
"I would like to get the full official visit experience [at five schools]," Jefferson explained. "That's something that I'm going to talk to the coach about. I don't know yet, but we'll talk about it."
As a junior at Ravenwood, Jefferson caught 81 passes for 1,231 yards and 16 touchdowns.
