Touted QB Jake Fromm talks Georgia commitment, recruiting

Georgia quarterback commit Jake Fromm hasn’t hidden how he feels about his future school.

Fromm, a four-star quarterback in the 2017 class was competing at the Corky Kell Classic 7-on-7 Friday in Roswell, Georgia, when he spoke with Gridiron Now about his Georgia commitment and the program’s future under new coach Kirby Smart.

“I just love it,” Fromm said. “I grew up a Georgia fan and it’s where I always wanted to go. With Coach Smart, I built a great relationship with him when he recruited me to Alabama. When he went to Georgia, it kind of opened up great doors for me.”

Since flipping his commitment from Alabama on March 3, Fromm also has been trying to push what the Bulldogs are selling to other recruits.

“It’s the whole feel,” Fromm said. “There’s just a whole new feel, energy all around Athens. It’s something to get excited about.”

Fromm was competing in the 7-on-7 with his high school team, Houston County. After struggling in the morning session with a 1-3 record, it won four straight games in the afternoon to reach the championship game against Colquitt County, the two-time defending 6A state champions.

Clemson quarterback commit Chase Brice of Grayson and Florida State quarterback commit Bailey Hockman of McEachern also were participants in the tournament with their high school teams.
