The University of Georgia has received financial aid agreements from 2014 four-star prospects Jacob Park and Josh Malone, according to Dawgs247, who received the information after an open records request.
Park, who is rated as the No. 5 pro-style quarterback in the nation, is currently committed to UGA as he made that decision early in the summer. Since the Goose Creek, S.C. native is planning to enroll in the spring at Georgia, he is allowed by NCAA rules to sign financial aid agreements with the school he is wishing to attend.
Malone, on the other hand, is what makes this story intriguing. The 6-3, 190 pound wide receiver is rated as the No. 5 overall receiver in the entire country, and it is perceived that the Tennessee Volunteers are his leaders. Malone has also signed a financial aid agreement with the Vols as well.
Malone, who also plans to enroll early, is the first uncommitted prospect to sign a financial aid agreement, which means that it loosens some of the recruiting restrictions created by the NCAA. This now means that UGA coaches have nearly unlimited access to both Park and Malone, but it still does not bind either to any of the schools they may sign an agreement with.
Malone took an official visit to Athens on Sept. 27, while taking his official trip to Knoxville on Oct. 5 as well as an unofficial on Nov. 9. He will look to make his decision within the coming month on which school he will attend in the spring.
