Chase Vasser didn’t want to get left out of all the fun, so he pulled the trigger, too.

“I am having a great night,” Vasser said tonight. “I committed to Georgia, and I have all my homework done.”

That’s a pretty good day, and Georgia’s most explosive recruiting day in sometime is seemingly coming to a close with three commitments.

“It has been a wild day,” Vasser admitted. “I have been thinking about Georgia all day and I don’t think there are going to be any visits necessary anyone else. It was pointless. I didn’t want to waste.”

2009 scholarship offers to Georgia will be at a premium due to the number of players signed in 2008 and the youth of the Bulldogs overall. With that in mind and the fact that Georgia already had other player committed at his position, Vasser decided waiting was not an option for him.

“Cameron Idol, a good friend of my let me know that Dexter Moody committed and I thought about it for about ten minutes and I didn’t want to lose my offer,” Vasser said. “Coach Jancek let me know earlier in the process that if my offer was in trouble that he would let my coach know and would be in touch with me that way. But I didn’t want to wait on that, so I called him up today.”

Jancek and Vasser already have a tight bond, according to the prospect.

“The first time I met him was at the Kentucky game,” Vasser said. “He told me when I met him the first time that he knew who I was and that stunned me. Also, he offered me the first scholarship at linebacker they had. They told me that I was their number one linebacker – I was flabbergasted. I told him that I wanted to be committed early the first time I met him, and I did that tonight. Coach Jancek is like another dad to me. He is there for me when I need him.”

Vasser could hardly contain his excitement about picking Georgia.

“Coach Jancek told me that this commitment thing was like being married,” Vasser said. “I told him that I knew Georgia was already my better half. He told me: ‘You are the linebacker I was waiting to commit.’”

Vasser, who said he likes to watch Rennie Curran play defense and Knowshon Moreno run the ball, is excited about the future of Georgia football.

“I think they are going to be one of the best teams in country over the next four or five years,” he said. “I have met Christian Robinson, A.J. Harmon, Richard Samuel and the rest of them and they are great. I hope they win a ring next year and then I hope to win one when I am there, too.”

One person who might get in the way of those dreams? Vasser’s brother Lane Vasser, a soon-to-be fullback at Kentucky.

“I can’t wait to play my brother,” he said. “He enrolls there this fall – as a fullback. I can’t wait to tackle him. He knew that I was trying to hear from Kentucky, but he knew that it would be stupid to give up a Georgia offer.”
