Once Lee County (Ga.) wide receiver Sanford Seay received a successful scholastic test score, he received a scholarship offer from Georgia.
And then it was only a matter of time.
Seay opted for sooner rather than later, jumping on the offer and committing to Bulldogs coaches on Thursday. He confirmed his decision by way of text message to Dawgs247, making him the 16th commitment on a UGA list that cut receiver Zack Witchett’s name in recent days.
Upon signing as a part of UGA’s 2011 class, Seay will do so having caught 68 passes for 15 touchdowns and more than 1,100 yards as a senior at the school near Albany, Ga.
“He’s an awfully good player,” Lee County coach Dean Fabrizio said. “He’s a big kid – 6-foot-2, 195 pounds – and he can run.”
Seay has posted an electronically clocked time of 10.7 seconds in the 100-meter dash, said Fabrizio.
He chose UGA over offers from schools like Georgia State, Marshall, Louisiana Tech, Troy and South Alabama. But the Bulldogs’ wait had more to do with Seay getting his academics in order than anything else.
“Georgia was recruiting him,” Fabrizio said, “but the test score was the big thing.”
