The University of Georgia added its 15th commitment in the class of 2015 Thursday night from New Orleans native Michael Chigbu. The four star wide receiver from Holy Cross high school is ranked 221st nationally in the Rivals 250.
Chigbu made the nearly nine hour trek from the Big Easy to Athens in order to see UGA for the annual Dawg Night. This was the receiver’s first time in Athens and it was rumored that the Bulldogs were his favorite school going into the visit. The trip proved not to disappoint, and soon after leaving Athens he let everyone know he would be announcing Thursday night between Georgia and Texas A&M. The addition of five star quarterback Jacob Eason to the bulldogs 2016 class also most likely played a part in Chigbu’s decision.
At 6’2″ and 215 pounds Chigbu is similar in stature to most of the receivers that head coach Mark Richt and wide receiver coach Tony Ball have brought to Athens in recent memory. Ball is not considered the best recruiter at his position but does an outstanding job of developing some more unheralded prospects into reliable and All-SEC quality players, which Chigbu certainly hopes to become.
The rising senior had 48 catches for 786 yards and 6 touchdowns for Holy Cross High last season.
