BREAKING: 2019 DT Tymon Mitchell Commits to Georgia

August 16, 2018

Georgia added its 19th commitment of the 2019 cycle Thursday afternoon. 

Three-star defensive lineman Tymon Mitchell‍ picked UGA over Tennessee and Vanderbilt. The 6-foot-3, 310-pounder will be plugged into the middle of Georgia's defensive line and adds to a stable of defensive linemen in this class. 

"Mitchell has the size and strength needed for the critical nose guard spot,” Dawg Post recruiting analyst Matt DeBary said of the commitment. “He is a big guy who will clog up space inside. Mitchell’s strong hands and upper-body strength are just what is needed at nose guard. He's got good quickness for his size as well. He has a knack for making plays in the backfield.”

The Franklin Road Academy (TN) star becomes Georgia's 5th commitment on the defensive line. Mitchell joins four-star Bill Norton and three-star Zion Logue as others along the defensive line from the state of Tennessee.
Mitchell is ranked as the 15th-best prospect in Tennessee and the 24th-ranked defensive tackle in the country. The Bulldogs were also waiting to hear if Georgia Military defensive back D.J. Daniel would jump on board as well, but he picked South Carolina during a ceremony on Thursday. 

Georgia continues to stay at or near the top of recruiting rankings. UGA is considered to have have the No. 1 (247 Sports), No. 3 (ESPN) or No. 4 (Rivals) recruiting class in the country according to those services. 

The Bulldogs are fighting primarily with Alabama (21 commitments) and Texas A&M (25 commitments) for the No. 1 overall spot. Oklahoma (17 commits) could also figure into the fight for No. 1 at the end of the cycle.
