LB Josh Harvey-Clemons picks Georgia
By Edward Aschoff
The nation's top outside linebacker is headed to Georgia.
Josh Harvey-Clemons (Valdosta, Ga./Lowndes) started the Bulldogs' national signing day in a good way by picking Georgia over Florida and Florida State. During his live announcement on ESPNU, Harvey-Clemons said he grew very close to Georgia defensive coordinator Todd Grantham during the recruiting process. He should really thrive in Grantham's 3-4 defense.
The 6-foot-4 and 210-pound Harvey-Clemons will obviously need to bulk up some, but he'll likely continue to play on the outside in college. However, he's versatile enough to move around the different linebacker positions. Georgia also doesn't have to worry about his speed, as he also played wide receiver at times in high school.
Harvey-Clemons' commitment gives Georgia its sixth ESPNU 150 member.
