Welcome Home: South Carolina flips Georgia commit Donovan Westmoreland
Donovan Westmoreland is no longer committed to Kirby Smart’s Georgia program.
That’s because the Griffin, Ga., native just announced his decommitment to the Bulldogs and his commitment to Shane Beamer’s South Carolina program. Westmoreland had originally committed to Georgia back in January.
“I would like to thank UGA for the opportunity they gave me to be a part of an amazing program and I appreciate Coach Lanning and Coach Smart for everything they’ve done. But I think it’s time to make a decision for the better and with that being said, I will be decommitting from the University of Georgia and I will be committing to the University of South Carolina,” Westmoreland posted online.
This is huge news for the Gamecocks as the program now has landed its fourth commitment of the 2022 recruiting cycle. Westmoreland’s decision comes just days after four-star quarterback Braden Davis announced his pledge to join Beamer’s South Carolina program.
The 6-foot-1, 210-pound Westmoreland is currently rated as a three-star prospect and the No. 30 outside linebacker prospect in the 2022 recruiting cycle according to 247Sports Composite Rankings. He’s also a top 400 prospect nationally in the class.
