Georgia Bulldog fans might have been a little surprised on Monday with the announcement of Class of 2016 wide receiver Davion Curtis to their commitment list.
Curtis exploded onto the recruiting scene as a junior for Temple (Texas) High School after catching 40 passes for 901 yards with eight touchdowns. He also made a quick but memorable statement on special teams as a kick returner, taking one of two attempts 97 yards to the house for a score.
The Wildcats posted a 13-2 record in 2014 making it to the Texas High School State Championship Game before falling to Aledo 49-45 with college recruiters taking notice. Leading up to Curtis’ commitment to Mark Richt and the Bulldogs, he had 13 reported offers, highlighted by Wisconsin, Kansas State, Houston, Kansas, Oregon State, Texas Tech, Minnesota, Colorado State and North Texas.
The Bulldogs have put together a solid 2016 class, securing 15 commitments led by 5-star quarterback Jacob Eason (Lake Stevens, Wash.) and 5-star defensive tackle Julian Rochester (Powder Springs, Ga). Curtis is the fourth wide receiver added to the class joining fellow Georgians Charlie Woerner (Tiger), Darion Anderson (Warner Robins), and Randrecous Davis (Atlanta).
