August 4, 2006

Moultrie - The high school football season is just getting started.

But the number of players who are finalizing their collegiate plans continues. T

Colquitt County's Vance Cuff announced on Friday will sign with Georgia in February.

Vance Cuff is considered one of the top defensive backs in Georgia and the nation.

He will likely play defensive back in college but for Colquitt County head coach Tim Cokely  will play use the gifted athlete at receiver, secondary and maybe even at quarterback.

Last season, the all-region player scored touchdowns four different ways- rushing, receiving, kick return and punt return. While on defense Cuff had 43 tackles and five interceptions.

The versatile Cuff has scholarship offers from some of the top programs in the nation like Ohio State, Auburn, South Carolina and Florida but says he wants to stay close to home.  

Vance Cuff said "I felt surrounded by a good coaching staff at Georgia and a great enviroment at a school that is building. And I want to be a part of that."

Vance Cuff is the 13th player to commit to sign with Georgia in February.

Berrien High offensive lineman Tanner Strickland was the first player to commit in the 2007 class. Strickland made his decision last summer.
