BREAKING: 5-star DT “Big Bear” Alexander de-commits from UGA

Want to attack every day with the latest Georgia football recruiting info? That’s what the Intel brings. This entry is about the latest with the recruitment of 5-star DT Big Bear Alexander.


Georgia’s whirlwind of positive recruiting news from the weekend was substantial. Monday does not continue the trend.

“Big Bear” Alexander has opted to de-commit from UGA. The visit he took to Texas A&M really opened his mind. That visit went well and it was fun. The good feeling he had got him thinking.

If Alexander can have the same type of feeling at Texas A&M as he had at Georgia, then there are other schools out there that can provide the same feeling.

It should be seen as a restart here of Alexander’s recruitment.

It certainly is the latest example that anything can happen with a recruit and the impressionable feelings of 17 and-18-year-old young men. The 5-star DT was the highest-rated recruit in the 2022 class for Georgia.

He had already started making moves behind the scenes that were establishing himself as a leader of the class. But that’s how quickly things can change.

Especially coming out of a pandemic. Alexander’s on-campus recruiting had been in hibernation along with every other recruit in America.

The decision drops Georgia to 11 commitments for the 2022 cycle. The Bulldogs still narrowly hold a slim lead over Ohio State for the nation’s No. 1 class on the 247Sports TeamComposite ratings.

Alexander had told DawgNation that he expressed to Kirby Smart he had “red, black and white” in his veins on his recent trip. Alexander also spoke fondly of getting the chance to take over the No. 99 for Jordan Davis in Athens.

He visited UGA at the earliest possible opportunity last week once visits had opened up. That was after he chose to commit to UGA back on National Signing Day for the 2021 class back in February.

Alexander had a great feeling about the Bulldogs when he left Athens last Thursday. The fit was good and he had family in the Metro Atlanta area, too.

He will now have a lot of search and discovery up ahead with his process.
