Jonathan Ledbetter is coming back to Georgia for his senior season.

The Bulldogs defensive end recently made that decision official. And on Monday night, Ledbetter penned a letter to Georgia fans and posted it on Instagram, explaining the factors that played into his choice:

Ledbetter, who is listed at 6-foot-4 and 277 pounds, had 38 tackles and 2.5 sacks for Georgia in the 2017 season. He also helped lead the Bulldogs’ strong defense to the SEC championship and an appearance in the National Championship Game.

Over his first three seasons at Georgia, Ledbetter has 66 tackles and 3.5 sacks. He matched his career high in tackles (six) during the Bulldogs’ win over Oklahoma in the Rose Bowl.

Ledbetter started 11 of Georgia’s 15 games last season. He’ll provide a nice boost for Georgia’s defense next season, now that he has decided to return to school and not enter the NFL draft.
