Dawgs Lose Commitment From 4-star DE Elijah Jeudy

As Dawg Post predicted months ago, this fall could be a giant “flip season” all across the recruiting world.

The Bulldogs flipped Jared Wilson‍ from North Carolina in early August and were able to get a “re-commitment” from defensive lineman Marlin Dean‍ in September.

This time it’s Georgia who loses a commitment in four-star defensive end Elijah Jeudy‍. The 6-foot-3 235-pounder out of Philadelphia committed to the Bulldogs back on April 19th, giving the Bulldogs their first pass rusher of the 2021 class.

So, where do the Bulldogs go from here?

At defensive end, the biggest target is 5-star Korey Foreman‍. He’s slightly heavier and more explosive than Jeudy, and that’s why he’s ranked as the No.1 overall prospect in the country. The Bulldogs are fighting off LSU for Foreman, and after a recent visit to both Athens and Baton Rouge in recent weeks, Dawg Post continues to feel good about where the Bulldogs CURRENTLY stand with the five-star defensive end.

Georgia has defensive lineman Marlin Dean on the commit list as well, and at 265-pounds Dean could possibly start off on the edge before moving inside as his career progresses.

4-star defensive lineman Jonathan Jefferson‍ is currently at 280-pounds and will bring some athleticism to the inside of Georgia’s interior defensive line over the next few years.

5-star defensive tackle Maason Smith‍ continues to be a top target for Kirby Smart and the staff. With a decision likely coming in December, the Bulldogs still have a chance to fight off the in-state LSU Tigers. If Georgia can blow him away on an official visit at some point, the Bulldogs could have a real chance at the end.

4-star Tyrion Ingram-Dawkins‍ is another defensive tackle prospect at 6-foot-5 300-pounds and Dawg Post feels it’s a three-team race between Georgia, South Carolina, and Tennessee. With a decision coming “soon”, Dawg Post feels the Georgia staff would welcome him with open arms if the wanted to jump on board.
