It wasn't a very suspenseful announcement. In fact, pretty much everyone, even the recruiting analysts paid to gin up excitement for the other contenders, agreed long ago that it was going to happen.

But frankly, who cares? When the top player in the state of Georgia, and arguably the top player in the country, decides to commit to the Georgia Bulldogs it's reason for exultation.

SB Nation's own Bud Elliott did a great recruiting breakdown of Thompson over the summer, and his assessment lines up with mine. While it's hard for fans to understand sometimes, college recruiters select players based not on high school production but on collegiate potential. In this case, Thompson's high school production is at the top of the class while his potential at the next level is head and shoulders above the fray.
