Georgia’s 2018 recruiting class downsized from three to two Monday as Florida linebacker Donovan Georges has announced his decision to back off his commitment to the Dawgs. Georges originally committed to Georgia back in January.
Kirby Smart and company have some catching up to do if the team is going to match last season’s elite recruiting class. After hauling in the nation’s No. 3 overall recruiting class and the No. 2 class in the SEC, Georgia currently ranks among the lowest SEC teams in terms of 2018 recruiting class rankings. Following George’s decommitment, Georgia’s only commitments come from defensive back Chris Smith and kicker Jake Camarda.
Here’s Georges’ statement announcing his decision to decommitment from Georgia:

The 6-foot, 237-pound Georges rates as a three-star linebacker, the No. 27 inside linebacker in the nation and Florida’s No. 117 overall prospect according to 247Sports Composite Rankings. He currently holds offers from Alabama, LSU, Miami, and Michigan State among others.
Here’s his latest highlight reel from his junior season playing for Champagnat Catholic in Hialeah, Fla.
