Georgia has landed its first wide receiver commitment of the 2020 cycle, as Justin Robinson announced his commitment to Georgia on Saturday night.
Robinson, from McDonough, Ga., plays for Eagle’s Landing Christian Academy. He is a 4-star recruit and listed as the No. 63 wide receiver in the2020 recruiting class. Robinson is listed at 6-foot-4 and played a key role for Eagle’s Landing Christian Academy state championship team.
Robinson announced his commitment to Georgia via Twitter.
“Before I say anything, I would like to thank the man up top for blessing me with gifts I have and putting me in the place I’m in right now,” Robinson said. “I would like to thank my mama and my Dad for getting me to this point and raising me for the man I am today and standing by my side through the recruiting process. I would also like to thank my trainers who pushed to be my best, friends and my teammates who stayed by my side and stayed down for me. Lastly, I would like to thank all the coaches who have gotten me to this point to play at the next level, Without further ado, I would like to announce that I will be spending my next four years at the University of Georgia. Go Dawgs.”

Robinson now gives Georgia four commitments in the 2020 class, as he joins 5-star Broderick Jones and 4-star defensive tackles Nazir Stackhouse and Jamil Burroughs. All four commitments come from the state of Georgia. Notre Dame was thought to be the main competition for Robinson prior to his commitment.
With Robinson in the class, Georgia now has the No. 19 ranked class in the 2020 recruiting cycle. Georgia still has a number of high priority targets on the board, including 4-star wide receiver Jermaine Burton out of Calabasas, Calif. Other big name targets in the class include 5-star athletes Arik Gilbert and Darnell Washington. Both of those players project as tight ends at the next level for Georgia.
Washington was also visiting this weekend. Another big name that was visiting Georgia over the weekend was 4-star quarterback Carson Beck.

Georgia landed three wide receivers in its 2019 class, as it signed 5-star wide receiver George Pickens, and 4-star prospects Dominick Blaylock and Makiya Tongue.
Robinson played both ways for Eagle’s Landing, as he also played defensive back. As a junior, he had 34 catches, 748 yards and 12 touchdowns in 2018, while also having four interceptions on defense.
