The Georgia Bulldogs picked up a massive commitment for the class of 2018 on Thursday evening as Jordan Davis chose to play his college ball in Athens.

At 6’6”, 330 pounds, the defensive tackle from Charlotte, North Carolina, is a huge addition to Georgia’s upcoming class. Not only is Davis a large young man, he’s actually pretty nimble, too. He’s the third defensive tackle to commit to UGA for the class of 2018.

Davis chose the ‘Dawgs over offers from Florida, Florida State, Miami, Michigan and state schools North Carolina and North Carolina State. Most expected Davis to stay home, but he made it clear he wanted to come to Athens and play for head coach Kirby Smart and defensive line coach Tray Scott, his primary recruiter.

Davis’ size and athleticism make him an intriguing college prospect. With the proper coaching at Georgia—which he will get—he has the potential to be a star. Players of his size aren’t supposed to move as well as he does. Davis should get a redshirt year in 2018 and be expected to compete for a spot in the two-deep in 2019.

Overall, this is a huge get for Smart and the Bulldogs.

Davis is Georgia’s 18th commitment for 2018 and the Bulldogs remain No. 5 in 247Sports’ composite team rankings for 2018.
