Another one of Mark Richt’s former UGA commits has found a new home.
Darion Anderson, a 3-star receiver from Houston County (Ga.) High School, committed to Georgia Southern after his official visit there this weekend.
Since Kirby Smart took over for Richt as UGA’s new head coach in early December, the Bulldogs have seen seven recruits de-commit from the SEC program. That type of turnover is common when there’s a coaching change because recruits aren’t sure how they will fit in with the new staff.
UGA has seven de-commits under Smart, but only four are 2016 kids. Here’s the breakdown:
- Darion Anderson, WR, Houston County, Ga.: Committed to Georgia Southern on Sunday
- Aaron Dowdell, OL, Creekside, Ga.: Backed off UGA last week after not hearing regularly from Bulldogs. UCF, Mississippi State and TCU are possible destinations.
- Devwah Whaley, RB, Beaumont, Texas: Committed to Arkansas in early January.
- Malek Young, DB, Pompano Beach, Fla.: He will join Richt in Miami after pledging to the Hurricanes last week.
