An offer he couldn’t refuse.

The Dawgnation is suitably thrilled about the commitment of Tampa QB Aaron Murray yesterday. Judging from his presser, he seems like a classy kid who’s pleased with his choice:

“After research on each of the schools, the many visits, the countless conversations, and the never-ending prayers, I have selected the school that from the first time I went there to attend a camp, I knew the school (Georgia) was for me,” Murray said.

But lost in the shuffle (at least from Georgia fans’ standpoint) was the commitment of another touted prep QB, as Michigan landed a kid out of Chesapeake, Virginia, Kevin Newsome. Newsome had an intruiging quote regarding his commitment:

“I really believe Michigan is the godfather of college football, and that’s what makes the Michigan-Ohio State game so notorious.”

Boy, that’s got the potential to become one of the more abused metaphors of our time. Rich Rod just hopes that Newsome doesn’t turn out to be the Wolverines’ version of Luca Brasi.

Now he sleeps with the fishes.

    “During his visit to the school for the annual Orange and Blue game this month, Murray, his parents and Plant coach Robert Weiner were escorted into the Aaron Murray Suite.
    There was Steve Spurrier’s jersey hanging, with his Heisman Trophy sitting below it. There was Danny Wuerffel’s jersey hanging, with his Heisman Trophy below it. There was Tim Tebow’s jersey hanging, with his Heisman Trophy below it.”

    This is a clip from the Tampa Tribune.

    And Murry still choose the dawgs.

    I’m glad he will be a Dawg. I watched his press announcement and he appears to be a very humble kid. I was very impressed. His parents are to be commended he is a fine young man and sudent athlete. He looks great in the game video. He seems to be able to make all the throws and his movements are very fluid. The only knock I have heard on him is his height. I don’t know how old he is but he could very well grow another 1/2 -1 inch before arriving on campus…..if not…I still think he is a great looking prospect. Speaking of arriving on campus he will be another mid year enrolle. UGA is starting to get more and more of these and it is sure to start paying off in terms of player development and player graduation.
