Warner Robins 2018 offensive lineman Chris Georgia announced earlier today his commitment to Murray State. The senior was a road grader this fall and made major improvements his senior year, earning late college interest. Georgia made his commitment to The Racers official when he tweeted:
The Murray State offer back on December 18th was a big one for Georgia, who had mostly heard from DII & DIII programs prior, but the Racers did their homework, and recognized the massive strides he made from junior to senior year. The 6’4″ 300-pound lineman also received a late offer from Fort Valley State on January 20th, but ultimately chose Murray State as his college destination.
Georgia was a major part to Warner Robins state runner-up finish in Class 5-A. The senior has played all around the offensive line at center and offensive guard the last few years. For a big 300-pound lineman, Georgia has surprisingly light feet, and shows a quick first step beating his man at the point of attack.
The senior was a pretty big sleeper in middle Georgia, and should produce well as an offensive guard at the next level. His versatility and prowess in the run and pass gives a college a very balanced offensive lineman to work with. Georgia should do well at the FCS level at Murray State after gaining a lot of great experience over the last few years. The powerful lineman is the first player from the state to commit to Murray State, but they have several offers out there right now, and you could see the Racers pluck a few more Peach State players as we near National Signing Day.
