ATHENS - Kirby Smart and the Georgia Bulldogs just flipped one of the top DB prospects in the South from the LSU Tigers.

That would be four-star, Ondre Evans‍.

Ranked as the No. 17 CB prospect in the 2024 class, Evans is a Nashville, Tenenssee native who saw a big opportunity to jump on board and play for the back-to-back national champions.

The Bulldogs have had two defensive backs, Jaylen Heyward and Peyton Woodyard, flip to other schools, and now it was Georgia’s turn to pull a major flip.

What is Georgia getting in Evans?

They’re getting a fundamentally sound cornerback with length and speed.

This kid knows how to play the position. He shows great technique, footwork, and the ability to make a play on the football. He also brings enough length to cover bigger, stronger receivers on the outside. He also brings that tough, physical nature that the staff loves.

Everything comes natural to him. If you don’t have length and can;t run, you aren’t going to play at Georgia. Of course, Evans has both. He’s great in pursuit and knows how to make a sound tackle on the ball-carrier. He has a high football IQ and knows exactly what he’s supposed to do. He also shows the ability to chase down the ball-carrier from behind.

Of course, let’s not forget the ball skills. He can pluck the ball out the area and knows how to burst down the field when it’s got it. He shows receiver-like hands and consistently puts himself in a position to make a play on the ball. He gets his head turned around quickly down the field as to not run into the receiver on under-thrown passes. There’s a lot to like about his game, and it’s easy to see why the Georgia staff pushed so hard to flip his commitment.

Georgia needed more defensive backs, and they just flipped one of the best. He’s ranked as the No. 17 CB prospect, the No. 1 player in Tennessee, and the No. 135 overall prospect in the country.
