Georgia's "Dream Team" has come to fruition with running back Isaiah Crowell choosing the Bulldogs on Wednesday and his Columbus, Ga., teammate, defensive tackle Gabe Wright, choosing Auburn.
The two ESPNU 150 prospects made their announcements live on ESPNU's signing day show.
Crowell, the nation's No. 1 running back prospect, put on a Georgia cap to reveal his choice and later unveiled a bulldog puppy. He referred to Georgia coach Mark Richt as a "God-fearing dude."
Wright, who had narrowed it down to Auburn and Tennessee, performed his own theatrics. He put on an Auburn cap backward with "Nick Who" emblazoned on it. He later explained it was his way of honoring Nick Fairley and hopefully keeping up that defensive line tradition at Auburn and wasn't a slam on Alabama coach Nick Saban.
The Bulldogs and Tigers are both destined for top 10 classes, and the latest update by ESPN has Auburn moving all the way up to No. 2 nationally behind Florida State.
