, according to the Charleston Post and Courier
Park is the No. 8 pro-style quarterback and the 139th overall player, according to 247 Sports.
The 6-foot-4, 210-pound rising senior also had offers from Auburn, Tennessee, North Carolina, North Carolina State, Ole Miss, Virginia Tech, Florida State, Notre Dame, Oklahoma State and West Virginia, among others.
His coach at Stratford (Goose Creek, S.C.)
, Ray Stackley, told the newspaper, "It was a very difficult decision for Jacob. He kept going back and forth between Alabama and Georgia. They both did a great job recruiting him, but I think he just liked a few more things about Georgia. He has a real good relationship with (Georgia head coach) Mark Richt. He talked with both schools several times this week."
In three varsity campaigns, Park has passed for 4,919 yards and 43 touchdowns while running for 381 yards and seven touchdowns.
He will participate in the Elite 11 national camp during June 28-July 3 at the Nike Campus in Beaverton, Ore.
