Recruiting: Georgia adds one, loses one

ATHENS - It was an interesting evening on the recruiting front for the Georgia football program.

First, news broke that cornerback Steven Nelson, a junior college prospect originally from Warner Robins, was no longer committed to the Bulldogs. Nelson is now leaning towards Oregon State, according to various web sites and his own Twitter account.

"I just decided I wanted to open things up and look around a little," Nelson told Dawgs247.com. "I still think about Georgia, but not like I used to."

But a short time after Nelson's de-commitment, tailback A.J. Turman of Orlando announced he would be attending Georgia next year.

Turman is rated a four-star prospect by 247sports.com. Although the Bulldogs have two star freshmen tailbacks (Todd Gurley and Keith Marshall), the coaches have been vocal about trying to add to depth at the position.
