Georgia finally extended an offer to four-star quarterback Jacob Park (Goose Creek, S.C. Stratford) when the talented signal-caller camped with the Bulldogs Jun. 8 and currently stand as the prohibitive favorites to receive his commitment.
The 6-3.5, 198-pound Park dazzled at Georgia’s camp displaying his impressive arm strength, smooth delivery, clean footwork and confidence while put through the workout. His performance necessitated the offer from Mark Richt and his primary recruiter offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach Mike Bobo.
Park originally had Virginia Tech as his leader dating back even before national signing day in February, but the offer from Georgia is the offer he had been waiting for. He also holds offers among others from Notre Dame, who received a commitment from Deshone Kizer Tuesday and Alabama, who is considered the overwhelming favorite to sign five-star David Cornwell.
The projected commitment from Park could happen before his senior season as he looks to end his recruitment early and begin recruiting for Georgia, including perhaps influencing the decision of four-star wide receiver Josh Malone. The four-star wide receiver recently visited Georgia, and they could be the biggest threat to take him away from Tennessee.
With Aaron Murray exhausting his eligibility after the 2013 season, Park will have an opportunity to compete for a starting job with other inexperienced quarterbacks. His biggest challenge to the position could come from incoming freshman Brice Ramsey who enrolled early and was a four-star recruit.
Park to Georgia is not official yet, but when he is ready to commit you can bet that it’ll be to Richt and Georgia.
