The one thing that excites a Bulldog fan more than anything is a kid who already appears to bleed red and black; you want a prospect to come in wanting to be a Dawg; there’s nothing that endears a future player to a fan base more than pledging allegiance early and never backing down on said pledge.
So, when big hitting defensive prospect Shaquille Fluker made his love for his future team known loud and clear, you can bet the fans began collectively salivating at the notion of seeing him playing ‘Tween the Hedges on Saturdays; and folks, let me tell ya, if he comes in hitting like this, he’s going to feel a whole lotta love from the Sanford crowd next season.
Have I ever mentioned how much I love a big hitting safety?
At any rate, there is still some time left before Fluker actually signs, but no worries, he’s already clear on where he wants to be…no matter how long it takes.
As his sophomore season at East Mississippi came to a close, a number of schools, came after the star JUCO, but Fluker says that, as far as he is concerned, the recruiting process is over.
“I’m pretty much done with recruiting,” he said. “I went ahead and took my official visit, and I have a decision I’m ready to stick with and I’m with Georgia.”
Fluker still has to finish up at JUCO before he enrolls at UGA, but he feels confident he can take care of any business in his way and become a Bulldog.
“Basically I am finished here,” said Fluker. I have some things to take care to finish here at JUCO but not much, and it comes down to me being ready to enroll in May and be on campus in that first week of June. I’m ready to be a Georgia Bulldog. It’s going to be great.” (Jake Rowe, Rivals)
