George Pickens is on his way to Georgia. Have you read about that news today?
The 5-star signee met with reporters after his big decision on Wednesday. Pickens made the flip to commit to Georgia after a long time with Auburn. He was Gus Malzahn’s first commit of the 2019 class back in July of 2017.
In speaking to AL.com, he said the choice was not easy. He described it as being “the toughest decision of my life.”
“I just felt like it was a right spot for me,” he told AL.com. “I always knew if I didn’t go to Auburn, I’d go to Georgia.”
He also said the decision had a lot to do with Georgia coach Kirby Smart.
“I just felt like it was the right place for me,” Pickens said. “Just coaching wise. Knowing that Kirby Smart he is always going to be up for like a national championship. I also felt like I had good communication with them all through the process.”
