Johnathan Abram, a 2-star safety from Mississippi, committed to UGA after his high school football game on Friday.
The 6-foot-1, 200-pounder from Columbia, Miss., picked UGA over Ole Miss, while also considering offers from Louisville, Kentucky, Arkansas State and Louisiana-Monroe.
Abram told the clarionledger.com’s Riley Blevins that UGA “just always felt like home to me. I knew it was the place I wanted to be.”
Even though Abram isn’t highly rated, it surprised some that he went with UGA over the hometown favorite, Ole Miss. Abram took an official visit with the Rebels last month and witnessed the historic win over Alabama.
“Ole Miss just is so deep at corner and safety,” Abram told the website. “That played a big factor in my decision. I really think at Georgia I can come in and compete for some playing time. It would be a lot harder at Ole Miss.”
Abram, who is an early enrollee, is commit No. 23 for UGA’s 2015 class. The Bulldogs could sign as many as 30-31 prospects in February.
