Tarboro's Gurley Commits To University Of Georgia

Todd Gurley, former WITN Player of the Week, has committed to play college football at the University of Georgia.

The Tarboro High School Senior won his third state championship with the Vikings this past year and was also named the Associated Press of North Carolina's player of the year for 2011.

Gurley rushed for nearly 2,600 yards and 36 touchdowns last season.
He ran for 242 yards and four touchdowns in Tarboro's 39-36 win over Lincolnton in the championship game.

Tune in tonight at six o'clock to hear from Todd Gurley about his decision.

    Would have loved it if he had gone to State, but I can't blame him for going to a program like Georgia if given the opportunity.

    Todd, first of all,congratulations! UGA is one of the top football programs in the country and speaks highly of your athletic abilities. I hope you make your family and community proud, but most of all I hope you earn a quality education the true reason your leaving home. Remember the football is short term but the education is forever.
