Kirby Smart and the Bulldogs landed another commitment on Tuesday.

What social media is saying about newest Georgia football commit Chaz Chambliss

The Georgia Bulldogs landed their first commitment in over a month on Tuesday, as outside linebacker prospect Chaz Chambliss announced that he would be attending the University of Georgia.

Chambliss is rated as the No. 255 overall prospect in the 2021 recruiting class. He projects as a SAM outside linebacker in Georgia’s defense and comes from Carrollton, Ga. Chambliss announced his commitment in a video posted to his social media pages.

Chambliss’ announcement was met almost immediately with a Go Dawgs! tweet from Kirby Smart, his go-to phrase to signal a new commitment.

Smart wasn’t the only Georgia staffer to join in on the celebration of the news.

With Chambliss now in the class, the Bulldogs have eight commitments in the 2021 cycle, with six of them coming from the state of Georgia. Chambliss is the fifth defensive prospect to join what should a defense-heavy class, given Georgia’s need at linebacker and in the secondary.

The two leaders for Georgia’s 2021 recruiting class, 5-star quarterback Brock Vandagriff and 4-star safety David Daniel, both took the time to formally welcome Chambliss to the class as well. Vandagriff seemed to hint that the two would be roommates when attending Georgia.

Those who follow the online chatter had known that Chambliss had been a target for Georgia as he received one of the apex predator graphics that a number of top recruits had gotten in recent weeks. Some of those other prospects to receive the edit include Amarius Mims, Smael Mondon, Dallas Turner, Brock Bowers, Xavian Sorey.

With Chambliss now in the class, Georgia has the No. 16 recruiting class in the 2021 cycle. It should be worth noting though that some of the teams ahead of the Bulldogs in the 247Sports Composite rankings have a much higher number of commitments, such as Florida and Tennessee. Only Clemson and Ohio State have a higher ranked average recruit, as the Bulldogs have a 94.05 rating per commit

And as is usually the case, Georgia fans were very excited to welcome Chambliss to the class after his decision was posted.

Since the NCAA instituted a dead period, preventing prospects and coaches from visiting, the Bulldogs have landed five commitments. The Bulldogs have signed a top-three recruiting class in each of the past four cycles, being the only team to do so.
