With the 2017 class wrapped up, the focus turns to the 2018 class for the Georgia staff. While they were trying to close on their final 2017 targets early this week, the staff received some big news from 2018 linebacker Donovan Georges on Tuesday.
“The coaches were pumped.” Georges said. “They were just saying how bright the future is and how happy they were that I would be part of the family.”
Georges admitted that his relationship and vibe from the coaches were his biggest attraction to Georgia, and why he decided to commit. The three-star prospect feels like he can bring a different style of play to Georgia’s defense moving forward.
“I think I can play different roles from inside linebacker to outside linebacker and even defensive end.” Georges said. “Regardless I want to be disruptive and cause chaos for our opponents. I want to bring a special type of violence and power with speed.”
Georges isn’t the recruiter type, but admits he wants to reach out to more prospects during the camp circuit about joining the Bulldog family.
“Right now I’m not really recruiting anyone.” Georges said. “I’m letting things simmer and see who really wants to be part of something special. Once the camps and events start up I will talk to more guys. I keep to myself and only hang with my brother, teammates, and coaches. I’m not all out there like some people are.”
The 6-foot-1 225-pound linebacker also held offers from Alabama, LSU, Miami, among others.
On film, Georges displays a great pass rush, he shows good instincts, and he’s a big hitter. He lives in the backfield, he gets off blocks well, and shows violent hands during his pass rush.
Georges is Georgia’s third commitment in the 2018, joining offensive tackle Max Wray and fellow linebacker Adam Anderson. With two linebackers in the fold, the Bulldogs need 2-3 more in this year’s class. Stockbridge outside linebacker Brenton Cox is another priority linebacker in the 2018 class.
