Kirby Smart and Will Muschamp may be good friends and former Georgia teammates, but on the recruiting trails, there are no friendships.
On Tuesday afternoon, 4-star JUCO DB DJ Daniel announced he was decommitting from South Carolina.
Shortly thereafter, Kipp Adams of 247Sports reported that the talented JUCO defender had flipped his commitment to Georgia:

Per the 247Sports composite, Daniel is the No. 3 JUCO cornerback in the class of 2019 and the No. 1 JUCO prospect from the state of Georgia.
With the commitment, Georgia’s 17th of the 2019 cycle, the Bulldogs jump ahead of Oregon for the No. 3 class in the nation. The class is also the No. 3 class in the SEC, behind Alabama and Texas A&M, per 247Sports.
