UGA fans got the big news they have been waiting weeks for on Tuesday morning when top-ranked 2021 QB recruit Brock Vandagriff committed to the Bulldogs.

Brock had previously been committed to Oklahoma, but chose to play a little closer to home.

Brock joined John Fricke and Hugh Douglas on Wednesday morning and spoke about what sold him on UGA

"The main thing was wanting to stay closer to home. I like the new OC Monken a lot and Coach Smart has the program moving in the right direction and I wanted to be a part of it"

It's no coincidence that Vandagriff committed to Georgia just days after they brought on Todd Monken as their new offensive coordinator.

Brock also discussed some of the conversations he had with Monken and why he believes he can do big things in his offense.

"To be successful in the SEC you have to run the ball, but he said we're going to open up the offense some more, throw more and do some RPO stuff and cater to the player's needs."

Brock Vandagriff admits that he still feels that Lincoln Riley's offense might have been the best fit for him, but that his family being able to attend his games is important for him and for that reason he's willing to gamble his future on Kirby Smart, Todd Monken, and UGA.

"Over break my family was talking about how far it would be and what a struggle it would be for them to get out there and watch me. We're sacrificing the best fit for me as a QB for something we're taking a chance on with Coach Monken."
