Wofford kicker David Marvin has announced that he has accepted a full scholarship offer to kick for the Georgia Bulldogs in 2017.
Marvin, a rising Senior, made the announcement on National Signing Day via his Twitter account.
Honored to announce I've accepted a full scholarship to kick at UGA for my final year. Can't wait to play between the hedges. #CommitToTheG pic.twitter.com/xVQ8p3MDTc

David Marvin played for East Mecklenburg High School in Charlotte before joining the Wofford Terriers in 2013. He redshirted during the 2013 season.
In 2016, Marvin made 17-of-23 field goals, including kicks from 47, 48, 50, 51, and 57 yards (twice). He also punted 46 times for a total of 2,124 yards (46.17 avg.) and was 41-of-42 on extra points.
Marvin also handled the kickoff duties for the Terriers in 2016. He kicked off 75 times for 4,628 yards (61.7 avg.) and 37 touch-backs.
With Marvin claiming a full scholarship, it’s unclear what the status of Georgia’s Rodrigo Blankenship will be. Blankenship had a good season for the Dawgs, but his father has been very vocal in expressing that Rodrigo deserves a scholarship.
“Our son being refused a scholarship is an injustice to him as well as a crushing hardship for his family,” Ken and Izabel Blankenship said last month in an email to OnlineAthens.com.
“He’s staying with the program,” his father said at the time.
