There’s a reason why this recruiting stuff is not over until the papers are signed.
D.J. Daniel, who surprised many when he chose South Carolina over Georgia back in August, has reversed that decision today. The Griffin native now wants to be a Bulldog.
The nation’s No. 3 junior college cornerback per the 247Sports composite ratings, chose today to de-commit from South Carolina and commit to UGA.
That news was first reported by UGASports.com on Tuesday afternoon.
The staff in Athens never let up on recruiting him after he made his decision.
Daniel even took a trip to UGA to take in a game earlier this season.
The Georgia Military College sophomore now becomes the 17th commitment for the Bulldogs in the class of 2019. That decision also moves UGA back up to No. 3 nationally in the 247Sports composite ratings for the 2019 cycle.
This decision now gives the Bulldogs a pair of defensive back commits for the 2019 class. Daniel, who should be seen primarily as a cornerback, boasts true 4.4 speed in the 40.
