Four-star OL Earnest Greene picks UGA


Earnest Greene went back and forth between Alabama and Georgia for a long time, weighed the pros and cons of each school and eventually came to a conclusion: in his heart, Georgia was the right place for him.

Bellflower, California, four-star offensive lineman St. John Bosco engaged with the Bulldogs during the Crimson Tide, Ohio State and Texas on Saturday at the All-American Bowl.

It was a tough decision for Greene, who respects and admires the work done by the Alabama coaching staff with player development for the NFL. There was no doubt that the Crimson Tide has played a huge role in its decision making over the past few weeks.

But he felt more comfortable in Georgia and the Bulldogs had made him a bigger priority early in his recruitment. The mentality of the players and coaches, the work done by the offensive line against Michigan and much more seemed right and so the Bulldogs won in his recruitment.


“If you look at the dominant performance they made against Michigan against two of the best edge rusher if not the best tandem in the country, I don’t know how much quarterback pressures, very little or none, just by getting out and letting the big boys show theirs. athleticism and they run a bit, I just like the aggression they play with and let their boys play in space.


Georgia ended the early signing period incredibly well with five-star defender Marvin Jones, Jr. and many more and now Greene is on board too. It gives the Bulldogs a huge chunk – literally – important because the four-star tall is versatile and can play across the offensive line.

What Greene brings to the table is also a focused and very serious attitude towards play on the offensive line and should fit perfectly into the culture of Athens. It’s also another major recruiting win for manager Kirby Smart and his staff by beating Alabama to one of the nation’s best offensive linemen.
