Flipping Out

Dawg Post takes a look at the three Georgia commits who are most likely to flip - and three prospects most likely to flip to the Dawgs.

Most likely to flip from Georgia

3-star Coral Gables WR and Georgia commit Shaquery Wilson

Wilson nearly backed off his commitment to Georgia earlier this month, so it is safe to say that he’s a possibility to flip elsewhere. He’s taken a hard look at West Virginia and Louisville recently. Home-state Florida could also be in the mix. Wilson wants to be considered a wide receiver - not an athlete or defensive back. If he gets assurances that he’ll be playing offense he should stick with the Bulldogs.

3-star Miami Northwestern and Georgia commit CB Deandre Baker

The 6-0, 175-pound defensive back is officially visiting Texas this weekend. The Horns, like Georgia, are trying their best to rebuild what has been a troubled secondary. Baker is one of three true cornerbacks committed to Georgia. The Bulldogs are still out recruiting defensive backs as well. Perhaps Baker isn’t interested in sifting through as much competition so he can get on the field as soon as possible.

5-star Callaway WR and Georgia commit Terry Godwin

This is probably one folks should not worry a ton about, but Terry Godwin is officially visiting Alabama this weekend and visited nearby Auburn last weekend. There’s a small shot that Godwin would turn his back on the Bulldogs after being committed for over a year, but it seems unlikely at this time.

Most likely to flip to the Dawgs

2-star Dunwoody OL and Cal commit Nick Buchanan

Georgia is still looking for at least one more offensive lineman in this class, and Buchanan could be it. The Atlanta native will officially visit Georgia this weekend, and momentum seems to be building in favor of him playing college football in Silver Britches instead of out West. Still, Buchanan is picking up offers by the boatload, and even though Georgia has momentum, they will have to knock out the Bears and hold everyone else off.

4-star Ensworth (Tenn.) CB and Alabama commit Rico McGraw

McGraw was committed to the Bulldogs this time last year, and now he’s officially visiting Georgia the final weekend of the recruiting season. He will visit Alabama this coming weekend, but it looks like Georgia might end up flipping two Alabama commitments in a recruiting cycle (J. Ledbetter). That doesn’t happen very often to the Tide.

5-star Lovejoy WR and Tennessee commit Preston Williams

He’s been committed to the Vols for some time, but Georgia has turned up the recruiting pressure on Williams in the last ten weeks. Williams contacted Georgia in order to come up for an official visit in November. And now with Van Jefferson de-committing from Georgia this week there’s another spot for a receiver in Georgia’s class. The Bulldogs would have to work some magic, but new offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer could see this as an opportunity to get an unexpected surprise on Signing Day, but he's going to have to figure something out that Mike Bobo couldn't.
