The Georgia Bulldogs received some big news on Tuesday night when 2018 four-star receiver Elijah Moore tweeted his commitment to the school.
Moore is a much-needed addition to Georgia’s class of 2018 and he’s the first wide receiver in this class. The 5’11”, 170-pound speedster from St. Thomas Aquinas in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, chose UGA over Miami, Ole Miss and others.
So, what exactly are the Bulldogs getting in Moore?
Moore is a player who could step in as a true freshman and start in the slot for Georgia. He can take short passes and do plenty of damage after the catch, which should help him get on the field next season.
Moore’s biggest strength is his shiftiness and elusiveness in the open field. He can also help the ‘Dawgs in the return game. Watching his high school film and he is reminiscent of a bigger version of Isaiah McKenzie.
Moore will have to get stronger at the next level but that will not be a problem.
With the commitment of Moore, the Bulldogs jump 14 spots in the 247Sports composite team rankings and currently have the No. 45 class in the country. As the season is about to begin, expect Georgia to continue moving up the boards with several highly-rated players—particularly from the Peach State—still uncommitted at the moment.
