Marcus Rosemy was down to Georgia and Florida. The nation’s No. 6 WR just took an official visit to Florida last weekend.
DawgNation probably knows by now how this specific movie script ends. They probably will approve of another ending which lands the nation’s No. 6 WR and No. 39 overall prospect in Athens.

Rosemy tweeted out on Thursday morning that he had committed to Georgia. The St. Thomas Aquinas standout had been to Athens to check out UGA on previous occasions.
Why was it UGA?
“I picked Georgia because I felt at home there,” Rosemy told DawgNation. “The family atmosphere there is unbelievable and it just felt right.”
The 6-foot-2, 187-pound rising senior is a good blend of size and speed for the class. He was clocked at a laser 4.59 seconds in the 40 earlier this year in Opening testing. The new Bulldog also delivered a 4.38 showing in the pro agility shuttle and a 35-inch vertical leap.
He was also named to that elite prospect showcase later this month out in Texas.
With this decision, he becomes the fourth Top 40 prospect in the 2020 class for the Bulldogs. He’s now the fourth-highest rated recruit in this class. It also makes him the seventh top 100 commitment in this class for the Bulldogs at this time.
Georgia still holds the nation’s No. 4 class for 2020 on the 247Sports Team Composite ratings after this decision. The Bulldogs are the only program in the top 4 of those rankings with less than 18 commits.
Clemson currently has the nation’s No. 1 class for this cycle, followed by Alabama and LSU.
Georgia QB commitment Carson Beck was thrilled by the news on Thursday.
“He’s really good,” Beck said. “Great hands and fast.”
The file on new UGA commit Marcus Rosemy
Rosemy finished his junior season with 37 catches for 764 yards and eight touchdowns for one of the top programs in the state of Florida. That production came about as a result of an average 20.6 yards per reception.
ST. Thomas Aquinas finished the 2018 season with a 13-2 record and won the Florida High School Athletic Association Class 5A state title. It marked the 10th state championship in the history of that program.
Georgia had been seen as the team to beat in this recruitment over the last couple of months. Rosemy was at one time trending hard to Ohio State but he was never able to make the trip to check out that program.
This follows the recent trend with the Bulldogs. Recommit Warren Brinson was also down to a final two of Georgia and Florida. He quickly chose the Bulldogs a day after naming those two finalists.
He becomes the 14th public recruit for the Bulldogs in the 2020 class. Rosemy is now the second receiver commit for the Bulldogs in this class. Eagles Landing Christian Academy Justin Robinson chose the Bulldogs back in March.
Georgia is only expected to take three receivers in this class. New Orleans speedster Corey Wren is also on commitment watch with Georgia as one of his three finalists this week.
