Georgia beats Florida, Ga. Tech for Valdosta LB

2:37 p.m. Friday, August 22, 2008

Mike Gilliard, a linebacker from Valdosta, said he has decided to play at Georgia. The 6-3, 205-pound linebacker is the third linebacker commitment for the class. Emanuel County Institute's Dexter Moody and Chestatee's Chase Vasser committed in January. At the time of Moody and Vasser's commitments it was believed Georgia would only add another linebacker if Columbus' Jarvis Jones was interested. Jones is considered the top linebacker prospect in the state and one of the top 40 players nationally. But Gilliard was also in Georgia's sights. In addition, the trio of linebackers now committed gives Georgia some possible versatility. Moody also can play safety. The 6-4 Vasser may also grow into a defensive end. "[The depth] at linebacker was something that I looked at, " Gilliard said. "But I am not trying to be cocky or anything, but I think I can go in there an outwork them. I'm confident. I think I am the best." Gilliard averaged 9.3 tackles per game last season, had eight sacks and two interceptions. According to, Gilliard is a three-star prospect. considers Gilliard a four-star prospect. Gilliard chose Georgia over Georgia Tech and Florida. Georgia is expected to secure no more than 20 commitments this recruiting season.
