Published Add your comment

Georgia commit, Kendall Gant is no longer committed to the Bulldogs and plans to sign with Marshall University tomorrow.

Gant has made the decision for academic reasons and not football reasons according his high school coach Keith DeMyer.

"There were way too many ifs in his situation for Georgia," DeMyer said. "As much as he wanted to go (to UGA) -- and believe me it was a tear-jerking decision for him -- he just had to make a decision that was best for him down the road."

The player has not reached the necessary test scores to enrol at Georgia and would have had to instead go to a junior college and lose a year of playing time. By attending Marshall, Gant can play immediately via a partial qualifier.

Gant is ranked as the 20th best safety in the nation and the 36th best player in Florida overall according to

He had previously been recruited by Alabama, Cincinnati and Florida.

Georgia currently have 18 recruits committed to the university and reportedly have a number of student athletes who are yet to declare.

Tomorrow is national signing day when high school seniors sign letters of intent to institutions that they wish to attend.
