After decommitting from USC, five-star quarterback Matt Corral reportedly has Georgia at the top of his list as he continues to visit other potential programs, via 247sports.
“For sure, I like coach Chaney and what he can teach me,” Corral said. “He has had eight quarterbacks go to the NFL. I feel like I could be one of those, learning from him and Jacob Eason under a year and Jake Fromm too and then earning that starting job.”
When Corral compared Georgia to USC, he also discussed the perks of Athens:
“The thing I like about Georgia that USC does not have is a college town,” Corral said. “SC was the only school that I visited before I de-committed. I took a visit to Georgia – I saw there was so much out there, so I decided to take a step back and decide if I really want to go there.”
Corral talked about hanging out with Eason and Shea Patterson around Athens, and described people’s responses as treating them “like celebrities.”
Corral has previously noted Florida and Alabama as the two other programs he is considering.
Florida, who runs another pro-style scheme, would be a good fit for Corral and there may be more room for Corral to get on the field for the Gators and Jim McElwain’s team sooner than he might in Athens.
Either way, Corral is almost certainly SEC-bound, and will be a big-time get for whichever school ends up landing the class of 2018 stud.
Corral is a Long Beach, California native and currently ranks as the No. 2 pro-style quarterback in the country. He’s the No. 17 overall player and 247sports’ Crystal Ball gives Georgia 89 percent to land him.
He was committed to USC since February 2016 until mid-June of 2017.
