Dawgs pick up 19

Carver's Quintavious Harrow said he couldn't wait until his official visit to Athens this weekend.

So, Harrow made it official, telephoning Georgia coach Mark Richt Wednesday afternoon to tell him that he was committing to the Bulldogs.

The 6-foot, 190-pounder who is being recruited as a safety and special teams performer, becomes Georgia's 19th verbal commitment and will sign with the Bulldogs on Feb. 2, National Signing Day.

"I called Coach Richt to tell him and he was very excited," Harrow said. "He was very excited and he welcomed me into the Bulldog family. He said he was thrilled to have and I told him I can't wait to see him when I take my official (visit) this weekend."

Harrow said he couldn't be happier to be a Bulldog.

"Georgia is just the place I want to be. I feel like I can help Georgia," he said. "It's the place I want to be. They made me feel very welcome from the very beginning. They were just as excited as I was when I told them I was coming."

Harrow said good friend and teammate Isaiah Crowell - who will join Harrow in Athens this weekend - was thrilled with the news as well.

"He was as happy as anybody," Harrow said. "He's really glad I'm getting this opportunity."

As for the suggestions by some that his offer was simply a ploy to help convince Crowell to sign with the Bulldogs as well, Harrow dispelled that notion.

"No, not at all. The coaches were all here yesterday and we talked about that and they made sure I understood that they recruited me because they want me, not because they were trying to convince Isaiah to come, too," Harrow said. "They let me know it was all about me, and it wasn't going to matter if Isaiah came or not, they were still going to honor my scholarship."
