Kirby Smart Adds Another Top 100 Commitment

May 20, 2019

ATHENS - Kirby Smart’s recruiting roll continued Monday as the Bulldogs got another Top 100 prospect. 

Four-star Apopka (FL) DL Jalen Carter picked the Bulldogs over Alabama and Clemson. The 6-foot-4 300-pound defensive tackle’s decision gives the Bulldogs three defensive line commitments in the 2020 class. Georgia has five seniors on the defensive line that must be replaced this winter. 

“Carter has raw athleticism and sky-high potential,” Dawg Post recruiting analyst Matt DeBary said. “The Georgia staff usually recruits players who can come in and make an impact, but the untapped potential Carter brings to the table led him to become one of the nation’s top-ranked defensive lineman.”

Carter joins Four-star Columbia DL Nazir Stackhouse and McEachern DL Jamil Burroughs along the defensive line in the 2020 cycle. Georgia now has ten commits in the cycle and are considered the consensus No. 5 class in the country. Georgia could still sign six more five-star prospects to go along with the two they already have. 

Carter, who is considered the No. 95 overall player of the country, is one of five out-of-state commits for the Bulldogs.

“Carter has film that is outstanding, but his best football is yet to come,” DeBary said. “This is a prospect Georgia fans should be very happy with.”
