It hasn’t been an ideal wide receiver class so far for Kirby Smart and Cortez Hankton and the Georgia Bulldogs, but they got some big news today as they’ve landed a commitment from one of the fastest-rising wide receiver prospects in Texas.

That would be three-star Dillon Bell‍ of The Kinkaid School (TX).

The 6-foot-2 200-pounder chose the Bulldogs over Michigan this evening, giving the Bulldogs their 2nd wide receiver commitment in the 2022 class.

Bell, who saw his recruitment take off in June, earned his offer from Georgia during a workout in front of the staff when he was on campus on June 15th. Not only did he earn an offer, but he made such an impression on the staff that they accepted his commitment now in August.

Within three days of earning his offer from Georgia, Bell would receiver offers from Auburn, Texas A&M and Michigan. He would make it back to Georgia this past weekend, and that’s when the Georgia staff won him over for good.

So what are the Bulldogs getting in Bell?

He may not be the biggest or fastest receiver out there, but he runs well and shows good burst for someone his size. He does a lot of things well and dominated at times last year. He didn’t go up against the best competition, but he still showed why he was able to win over the Georgia staff in June.

He makes big plays down the field, has enough size to line up on the outside, and can also help in the screen game. He’s a true playmaker and is expected to rise in the rankings over the next few months. He’s a slippery runner after the catch and runs with some physicality. He runs like a running back in a way. He follows his blocks well and can be dangerous after the catch. He’s got the physical tools, but his burst and physical running style after the catch really stands out on film. 

Bell may not be ranked as high as receivers like Evan Stewart‍ or Kojo Antwi‍ or Luther Burden‍, but he plays a position of need and still has plenty of time to develop and grow as a receiver.

The Bulldogs now have two wide receiver commitments in Bell and four-star De'Nylon Morrissette‍. They are also still actively recruiting 5-star Oklahoma commit Luther Burden‍, four-star Jayden Gibson‍, four-star Andre Greene Jr, three-star Cole Speer, among others.

Bell now gives Georgia 13 commitments in the 2022 class.
