Georgia’s not-so-long regional nightmare is officially over.
After a period of 24 hours worth of drama that included a televised announcement committing to UGA, rumors of a flip to Florida, an MIA grandfather and no signed Letter of Intent, the school confirmed in a release that the LOI from five-star (projected) linebacker Josh Harvey-Clemons was received at 8:30 a.m. Thursday morning.
Harvey-Clemons becomes the 19th member of the Bulldogs’ Class of 2012.
Since his announcement Wednesday, Harvey-Clemons had maintained that he was and will be a Bulldog, but for whatever reason there was a significant delay in sending his signed LOI to the school. Speculation was that his grandfather, and perhaps other family members, wanted the recruit to sign with the Gators. Harvey-Clemons’ grandpa is the recruit’s legal guardian, and his signature is required on the LOI as well.
Regardless of how it actually went down, UGA has officially landed one of the most talented defensive players in this class; Harvey-Clemons was rated by Rivals.com as the No. 31 player at any position in the country.
