Four-star wide receiver Cavin Ridley chooses Georgia

Friday January 8th, 2016

Four-star wide receiver Cavin Ridley, brother of Alabama wideout Calvin Ridley, has committed to play for coach Kirby Smart and the Georgia Bulldogs, he announced on Twitter.

Ridley had verbally committed to South Carolina after the Under Armour All-American game, but later re-opened his recruitment.

“As you all have seen, I’ve really struggled to choose between some amazing universities with outstanding football programs,” Ridley wrote in a note posted to Twitter. “I took a step back to go over my recruiting options and take an in depth second look at all the schools on my final list. After talking things over with my family and the coaches at Deerfield Beach I have decided to ‘Commit to the G’ and become an early enrollee at the University of Georgia!”
