BREAKING: Elite DB Tyrique Stevenson Chooses Georgia.

January 5, 2019

SAN ANTONIO - Georgia lands on of the top defensive backs in the country if four-star Tyrique Stevenson.

The former Florida commit chose Georgia over Miami and the Gators on Saturday.

As Dawg Post has reported all year, the Bulldogs were a major contender for the 6-foot-1 205-pounder and many believed the Bulldogs were the team to beat the entire time.

While there was pressure to stay close to home, assistant James Coley and Kirby Smart were able to close the deal without former defensive coordinator Mel Tucker. Stevenson announced in December that his final two were Georgia and Miami, and the Bulldogs were able to win in the end.

This is a major pickup for Georgia as Stevenson has great size and ball skills which should translate well to the next level.  Florida native Deandre Baker came to Georgia and ended up winning the Jim Thorpe award for the 2018 season, given to the best defensive back in college football.

Like Baker, Stevenson is another guy from the Miami area who will look to make a name for himself between the hedges. 

Stevenson is the 4th-ranked cornerback prospect in the country and the 6th-overall prospect in Florida. He becomes another four-star signee for the Bulldogs and an excellent start for Georgia on what should be a big Signing Day for the Bulldogs.
