Georgia football added it’s 12th commitment to the recruiting class of 2019 Monday with the pledge of offensive tackle Warren McClendon Jr. of Brunswick, Ga., who picked the Dawgs out of a top five that included Auburn, Florida, South Carolina and Tennessee.
“First, I would like to thank God for blessing me with the opportunity to play on the next level,” McClendon wrote in a tweet. “I would like to thank my parents for supporting me during the recruiting process. Also, I would like to thank all my coaches and teammates. With that being said I’m 100% committed to … THE UNIVERSITY OF GEORGIA.”
