Bama bound? 4-star Georgia defensive lineman Jamil Burroughs decommits from Kirby Smart's program
Georgia just lost a commitment from Powder Springs native Jamil Burroughs but that doesn’t mean the McEachern High School product won’t end up playing his college football in the Southeastern Conference.
While the four-star defensive lineman had been committed to Kirby Smart’s program for over a year, Burroughs has been a frequent visitor to Tuscaloosa during the offseason. Now following those trips to Alabama, Burroughs has announced his decommitment from the Georgia football program. He announced the news on Friday morning.
“After careful consideration, talks with my family and prayer, I have decided to decommitment from the University of Georgia,” Burroughs posted on Twitter. “I appreciate the time I have spent there and the relationships built. I truly appreciate the opportunity but I have to do what I feel is right. God bless you all.”
Rated as the No. 31. defensive tackle in the nation for the 2020 recruiting cycle by 247Sports Composite Rankings, the 6-foot-2, 330-pound Powder Springs native is also scheduled to compete in the All-American Bowl, formerly known as the Army All-American Game, following the conclusion of his high school career.
Following this news, Georgia is down to 16 commitments for the 2020 recruiting cycle. The class currently ranks as the No. 5 class nationally and No. 3 in the SEC.
