BREAKING: 5-star WR George Pickens Flips to Georgia

February 6, 2019

ATLANTA - The Bulldogs get the first big surprise of Signing Day as they flip 5-star WR George Pickens‍ from Auburn.

Georgia got the stunning good news Wednesday morning when 5-star Hoover WR George Pickens flipped from Auburn to the Bulldogs. The move was unexpected. 

“I just felt like it was the right place for me,” Pickens said during a press conference announcing his decision. “Kirby Smart is always going to have us playing for national championships.”

Pickens said he had the Bulldogs close to the top during his recruiting. 

“Georgia had always been the No. 2 school the entire time,” he said.

That the move was unexpected didn’t make Pickens’ call to leave in-state Auburn any easier. 

“No, it wasn’t an easy decision,” he admitted. “It is the hardest decision I have made in my life.”
