On Thursday, 2016 punter recruit Marshall Long took to his Instagram -- announcing that he has committed to Kirby Smart and the Georgia Bulldogs.

The China Grove, North Carolina native had been committed to Virginia Tech for the past two weeks. However when Smart the Bulldogs came calling, Long reneged on his Va Tech commitment in order to pledge his services to Georgia.

Long is walking into a potentially very attractive situation. Starting punter Collin Barber has exhausted his eligibility. The only other player on the roster with any punting experience is quarterback Brice Ramsey.

First I would like to thank everyone who has supported me through the recruiting process. I have decided I will play college football at The University of Georgia on full scholarship. It's always been a dream of mine to play SEC football and it's a blessing to have this opportunity. Can't wait to play between the hedges! GO DAWGS
