Any chance that Devonte Wyatt flips to an SEC rival have been put to bed, as the Decatur, Ga., native plans to stick with his Georgia commitment, according to multiple reports.
Will Muschamp and South Carolina had hoped to pry away the four-star defensive tackle from the Bulldogs by signing day, but barring a last-minute change of heart, it looks as if that’s not going to happen.
The news was first reported by Jeff Sentell of Dawg Nation and has since been confirmed by Chris Clark of Gamecocks Central:
Confirmed that Georgia DT commitment Devonte Wyatt is sticking with UGA, per his high school coach.

The 6-foot-3, 300-pound Wyatt ranks as the nation’s No. 16 defensive tackle prospect and the No. 28 overall prospect from the state of Georgia. In recent weeks, Wyatt took official visits to Florida, Georgia and South Carolina. While he explored all his options down the stretch, the choice remains the same for Wyatt in the end, his home is Athens.
With Wyatt sticking with Georgia, the Bulldogs currently have 15 of the state’s top 28 prospects committed to its 2017 recruiting class. Not bad for Kirby Smart’s first official haul as head coach of the Bulldogs.
