Update, 3 p.m. ET:'s Fletcher Page reports that Harvey-Clemons has yet to deliver his letter of intent to Georgia and could still be considering Florida, at the request of his family. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that Harvey-Clemons' grandfather -- and legal guardian -- has not signed the letter. Stay tuned.

Despite a recruitment with plenty of drama and twists and turns, Maxpreps top 100 safety Josh Harvey-Clemons has elected to remain in his home state of Georgia and will play for Mark Richt's Georgia Bulldogs.

6'5", 225-pound heavy-hitter from Lowndes High School in Valdosta, Ga., Harvey-Clemons received offers from across the nation, and particularly from the SEC--Florida was widely believed to be the Bulldogs' closest competition, with Florida State, Miami and Alabama also in the mix.

“I knew when I went there I wanted to go after the visit," Harvey-Clemons said. "It felt like home.”  

Harvey-Clemons is ranked as the No. 93 prospect overall in the class of 2012 and the No. 3 outside linebacker by Tom Lemming--an indication of the four-star's versatility and potential to fill out his 6'5" frame. 

His decision is huge boost for a Bulldog class that ranked 22nd in the CBS Sports National Signing Day Top 25 entering Wednesday. He becomes Georgia's 18th commitment of their class of 2012.
