Ernest Green went back and forth between Alabama and Georgia for a long time, weighing the pros and cons of each school and finally coming to one conclusion: In his heart, Georgia was the place for him.
Four-star offensive lineman from Bellflower (California) St. John Bosco committed to tackle the Bulldogs over Crimson Tide, Ohio State and Texas on Saturday in the All-American Bowl.
It was a tough call for Green, who respects and admires the job the Alabama coaching staff does with player development in the NFL. There was no doubt that Crimson Tide has played a large role in the decision-making process in recent weeks.
But he did feel right at home in Georgia, and the Bulldog made him a bigger priority earlier when recruiting. The mentality of the players and coaches, the job the offensive line did against Michigan and I felt a lot of people were right, and that’s how Bulldogs won in his recruiting.
“If you look at the dominant performance they had against Michigan against two of the best edge strikers if not the best tandem in the country, I don’t know how many quarterback pressures, very little or nothing, just going out and letting the big guys show their sport and run a little bit, I just love The aggression they play with and they leave their men playing in space.”
what does that mean
Georgia closed incredibly early in the signing period with five-star defensive end Marvin Jones Jr., several others and now Greene on board as well. It gives Bulldogs a huge – literally – significant piece because the high four is so versatile and can play across the offensive line.
What Green brings to the table is also a very focused and dangerous position to play up front and he should fit right in with the culture in Athens. It’s also another major victory in recruiting coach Kirby Smart and his staff with a victory over Alabama for one of the country’s best offensive linemen.
