UGA has lost another recruit from Texas.
On the same day that UGA hired a new coach, Devwah Whaley de-committed from the Bulldogs.
The 4-star running back from Beaumont, Texas, was reportedly “secretly committed” to UGA in September and then randomly revealed his decision on Thanksgiving. Some speculated that Whaley’s timing was a way to gain public support for then-embattled UGA coach Mark Richt.
“I would first like to thank UGA for recruiting me,” Whaley said in a tweet. “This has been a blessing to be offered a scholarship from Georgia, but I am officially de-committing …”
Last month, Texas speedster Davion Curtis both de-committed from UGA and flipped to Texas on the same day.
Whaley and Curtis became fast friends after taking an official visit to UGA together for the South Carolina game.
After the loss to Whaley, UGA still has one commitment at running back for this class – Elijah Holyfield of Woodward Academy. He’s the son of former boxing great Evander Holyfield.
