SacFalcFan Posted May 14, 2010 Share Posted May 14, 2010 He is down to a handful of teams. Welcome to the Dawg Nation Sterling!!! GATASterling Bailey becomes 8th UGA commitment6:38 pm May 14, 2010, by AJC OpinionGAINESVILLE — Georgia landed its eighth commitment of the 2011 recruiting class on Friday. And he’s a good one.Sterling Bailey, the 6 foot-5, 235-pound defensive end/outside linebacker from East Hall High School, chose the Bulldogs from an offer list of 23 colleges. Bailey said his finalists were Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Notre Dame and Tennessee.“Mostly it came down to the chemistry between me and Coach Richt and the rest of the coaching staff,” Bailey said during a modest ceremony at his high school Friday evening. “The religious backgrounds between me and coach Richt are similar and the bond I have with him and all the coaches were just stronger than with any of the other coaches.”Bailey is projected to play the outside linebacker position in new defensive coordinator Todd Grantham’s three-four scheme. He gets a three-star rating from Scout.com but is among the top 10 to 20 prospects in the state of Georgia.UGA can only hope that Bailey is the first commitment of the weekend. Justin Scott-Wesley, a wide receiver/defensive back from Camilla’s Mitchell County High School is slated to make an announcement Saturday in Jefferson and also has the Bulldogs among his finalists.****the above is from chip towers, but he is projected to be a DE for us.
