Kirby Smart continues to amass an unbelievable amount of 5-star talent in Athens. The latest big-time Bulldog commitment comes from Destrehan, La. running back John Emery. He announced his commitment Sunday by tweeting a “committed” graphic featuring a photo of him in UGA’s black jersey sporting No. 4.

Listed at 5-11, 206 pounds, Emery is rated the No. 2 running back, No. 4 Louisiana product and No. 31 overall national recruit by the 247Sports Composite. With Emery onboard, the fifth 5-star in the class, UGA’s national recruiting ranking jumped from No. 5 to No. 3.

It’s no surprise that an elite talent like Emery had his pick of big-time programs. Emery’s SEC offers included Alabama, Arkansas, Auburn, Florida, LSU, Mississippi State, Ole Miss and Tennessee.

The Georgia backfield will be loaded for years to come, but Emery’s sophomore season highlights show why he’ll likely compete for touches from the time he gets on campus.
