Kirby Smart and the Georgia Bulldogs just got some BIG news on the recruiting trail today as five-star wide receiver target Luther Burden‍ announced that he has de-committed from Oklahoma.

Burden has always been a top Georgia target in the 2022 class and the Bulldogs hosted him for a visit in late June. The Missouri native told Dawg Post after that visit that Cortez Hankton and the Georgia staff made Athens “feel like home”.

“The entire visit was good!!!” Burden told Dawg Post. “I got a chance to talk to coach Smart, wide receivers coach Cortez Hankton, and offensive coordinator Todd Monken. The environment at Georgia was great. It made me feel like home and I feel a good vibe there.”

Dawg Post reported that Burden was on “de-commit watch” following that visit to Georgia, so it shouldn’t come as a surprise to Dawg Post members that he’s now opening up his recruitment. 

As a player, Burden is an explosive player who can beat defenses short in the screen game and also get behind them down the field. He’s a dangerous weapon with the ball in his hands and has a solid frame. He already looks like an SEC wideout and is an impressive route-runner as well. He also knows how to be physical on the outside and help in the run game. He’s a five-star for a reason, and the Georgia staff is going to go all out for him the rest of the way. Right now, sources say the in-state Missouri Tigers are Georgia's biggest competition for him.

Georgia Bulldogs QB JT Daniels: Is He Really “The Man”?

The Bulldogs have three wide receivers on the current commit list, but they are still actively recruiting Burden and four-star Andre Greene Jr.‍ who took an official visit to Georgia in mid-June and recently earned a place in his “Final 6”.

Georgia’s three commitments are four-star De'Nylon Morrissette‍ (North Cobb, GA), three-star Cole Speer‍ (Calhoun, GA), and three-star Dillon Bell‍ (Kincaide School, TX).

 At 6-foot-2 190-pounds, Burden is ranked as the No.1 player in the state, the No.1 wide receiver in the country, and the No.11 overall prospect in the country for the 2022 class.
