Jarvis Wilson flips to Georgia

Three-star safety flips commitment from Mississippi State to Georgia

Jarvis Wilson, a three-star safety out of Mississippi, announced his decommittment from Mississippi State and swap to Georgia late Wednesday night after taking his official visit in Athens for the Charleston Southern game.

At 6-foot-2 and 197 pounds, Wilson is a "very physical football player with size and athleticism. He really closes on the ball well and he is a real force against the run," according to Scout.com's Chad Simmons.

Wilson originally committed to Mississippi State in May 2014 after visiting Starkville multiple times, but defensive coordinator and defensive backs coach Jeremy Pruitt has been after the three-star to fill out a backfield that recently got four-star safety Rashad Roundtree.

Though Pruitt secured the commitment, UGA commit Johnathan Abram, another three-star safety out of Mississippi, had been a part of this recruitment, even before Abram was officially committed to Georgia, according to Simmons. With both enrolling early in spring 2015, look for these to possibly be roommates during their time in red and black.
