Three-star linebacker Donovan Georges, who pledged to the Georgia Bulldogs back in January, has decommitted from UGA.
In a Twitter post on Monday, Georges announced his decision while thanking the UGA coaches:
After further thought and consideration, I have decided to Decommit from the University of Georgia and re-open my recruiting. I want to thank Coach Coley, Coach Schuman and the rest of the staff for the love and attention they have shown me. They understand my reason to Decommitt. This will be a very important summer for me and I look forward to it. I would like everyone to respect my decision. Thank you!
Georges (6-2, 230) currently plays for Champagnat Catholic in Hialeah, Florida. He committed to the Bulldogs over Miami (FL) and also holds offers from Alabama, Indiana, Louisville, LSU, Michigan State, Syracuse, South Carolina, West Virginia, and others.
In the 247Sports Composite, Donovan Georges is listed as a three-star recruit, the No. 27 inside linebacker, and the No. 722 overall recruit for the 2018 class.
Georges’ recruiting rankings actually dropped significantly since his commitment. When he committed to UGA in January, he was ranked as the No. 15 inside linebacker and the No. 488 recruit overall.
The loss of Donovan Georges leaves Georgia with just two commitments for the 2018 class — three-star defensive back Chris Smith and two-star kicker/punter Jake Camarda.
