Wheels within wheels, baby.
The Georgia Bulldogs added another piece of the 2020 puzzle on the eve of National Signing Day. Jackson Muschamp, a 6-foot-2, 190-pound quarterback out of Columbia, South Carolina, has verbally committed to Kirby Smart as a preferred walk-on quarterback after taking an official visit this past weekend to Athens. He is the oldest son of South Carolina head coach and former UGA football captain, Will Muschamp…
In the end, the chance to play his college days in Athens was too much to pass on.
“Just thinking about it more, that opportunity to go to Georgia, and I have always wanted to go there,” he said.”They never really stopped recruiting me since I went to camp there last summer. It was just an opportunity I could not really pass up. I am fortunate enough to be in a situation where I could go walk on somewhere like Georgia in the first place. I am super excited about it.”
Any decision on his college future was going to be supported by his family and especially by his Dad.
“He was super happy for me. We kind of decided a long time ago that I was going to kind of do my own thing and blaze my own trail, no matter where he was coaching,” he said.”He knows I love Georgia and how much I wanted to be there, and he was ok with me doing whatever I wanted to do. He was happy when I committed to Colorado State, but he also supports my decision to go to Georgia.”
Muschamp will report shortly after graduating in late May.
“I am going to Georgia to work and compete. I will do whatever I am asked to do, to make the team better,” he said.”I am definitely going there to compete. I am so excited about it. I have always wanted to go to Georgia.”
You have to appreciate his taste, at least. Should make for some interesting dinner chatter around the Thanksgiving table at the Muschamp house. For that matter, it should make for some interesting chatter on the recruiting trail for Kirby Smart.
What’s the over/under on the number of paranoid Georgia fans who fret about what info Jackson’s passing back to daddy?
