He was not the most highly rated player in Georgia’s 2018 recruiting class, but Rachad Wildgoose Jr, did have the best name.
However, the cornerback is no longer a part of the Bulldogs’ 2018 class. He de-committed from Kirby Smart’s program on Sunday afternoon via Twitter:

Wildgoose’s de-commitment will help the numbers game a bit for Georgia, as it drops the Dawgs to 20 signees and two commitments, with several high-profile targets still on the board. Wildgoose’s departure theoretically opens a spot for a more highly rated player.
A 3-star prospect from, Northwestern High School in Miami, according to 247Sports composite rankings, Wildgoose had been committed to Georgia since June. He holds offers from Auburn, Kentucky and Florida, among others.
Overall, Georgia fans would be wise to look at this de-commitment as less of a loss and more of an opportunity to bring in a higher-rated player. Wildgoose told DawgNation that his decision to de-commit was made after taking his official visit to Georgia last weekend.
