“I trust the coaches there, and I trust them in the direction they are going and I want to be able to compete for national championships,” Vandagriff told DawgNation of his decision to sign with Georgia.
The decision came about three weeks after Vandagriff backed off his commitment to Oklahoma and after he visited Georgia each of the past two weekends.
Should his current rating hold through the 2021 recruiting cycle, Vandagriff would become the sixth 5-star quarterback to sign with Georgia during the 2000s. The others: D.J. Shockley (No. 18 overall, No. 1 dual-threat, 2001), Matthew Stafford (No. 6, No. 1 pro, 2006), Aaron Murray (No. 19, No. 2 dual-threat, 2009) Jacob Eason (No. 5, No. 2 pro, 2016) and Justin Fields (No. 2, No. 1 dual-threat, 2018).
Over his time at Prince Avenue Christian, Vandagriff has played wide receiver and kicked off. According to 247Sports, Vandagriff was clocked at 4.69 seconds in the 40-yard dash at The Opening regional workouts in April 2019 and recorded a 36.9-inch verical jump. According to MaxPreps, Vandagriff rushed for 1,001 yards and passed for 3,190 yards as a sophomore and caught 34 passes for 472 yards as a freshman.
