The Georgia Bulldogs are on some kind of heater right now.
Earlier Sunday, the Dawgs were pleased to learn that 2019 recruits John Emery Jr. and Makiya Tongue committed. As if that weren’t enough, Kirby Smart and Co. learned of a third commit on the day. This time it was Rian Davis, who revealed his commitment to UGA on his Twitter account.

Davis will come to Georgia from Apopka, Florida, located near Lake Apopka northwest of Orlando. As you might expect, he’s not the only Sunshine State recruit to commit to UGA. He joins five-star Nolan Smith, an attendee of the IMG Academy in Bradenton, as the second recruit from Florida to join the Bulldogs in the 2019 class.
The Wekiva HS senior, listed at 6-foot-1.5 and 240 lbs., ranks as one of the best in 2019. He is listed 68th nationally in the Class of 2019, hanging right inside the Top 70. Among all outside linebackers, he ranks 5th, sandwiched in a Top 5 featuring Auburn commit Owen Pappoe, uncommitted Henry To’oto’o, Oregon commit Mase Funa and Texas commit De’Gabriel Floyd.
Lastly, in the state of Florida, he currently ranks 7th among all recruits. That crop is headed by the aforementioned Nolan Smith, uncommitted running back Trey Sanders and Clemson commit Frank Ladson.
Prior to his commitment, Davis held offers from Alabama, Texas, Auburn, Louisville, LSU and Michigan, among many others.
After their busy day, UGA was able to make a move in the recruiting rankings. After sitting 3rd through the commitments of Emery and Tongue, Rian Davis’ commitment launched them up to 2nd in the SEC and the nation. They leapfrogged Texas A&M and only trail Alabama at this point in time. At this rate, they could very well get that top spot very soon.
