National Signing Day still features plenty of flair

Grant SmithFeb 08, 2018

Campbell's commitment makes it seven five-stars in the Bulldogs' 2018 recruiting class, which is in close competition with Ohio State and Alabama as this year's top signing class.

On Wednesday, four star linebacker Quay Walker sat at a table that featured the hats of Georgia, Tennessee, Alabama, and Auburn.

Tyson Campbell, who entered National Signing Day as the No. 12 overall prospect in the country, chose Georgia over Alabama, Clemson, Miami and Ohio State.

The top unsigned prospect is Patrick Surtain Jr., a cornerback from Florida whose father played in the NFL. The other two secondary commits from Miami are Divaad Wilson (Northwestern) and Nadab Joseph (Miami Norland).

However, coach Kirby Smart, while understandably thrilled with his 2018 class, said during a press conference on Wednesday that he knows there's still a lot of work to do.

The Miami pipeline is noteworthy, considering Georgia's No. 1 cornerback, Deandre Baker, is also from Miami.

Campbell is a big cornerback at 6-foot-2 and 180 pounds who could compete for early playing time. The Bulldogs could keep Tyrique McGhee outside or move him inside to the star position.

The pool of recruits may be smaller but that doesn't mean today's National Signing Day won't be without its usual flair for the dramatic.

- Four-star Stockbridge (Ga.) receiver Marquez Ezzard, who decommitted from Florida State in the fall, made a decision to sign with Miami.
