Defensive tackle Warren Brinson.

4-star defensive tackle commits to Bulldogs -- again


Brinson, a 6-foot-4, 301-pound rising senior defensive tackle at IMG Academy, gives Bulldogs coach Kirby Smart yet another recruiting win over Florida coach Dan Mullen. Brinson announced Friday that he was deciding between the Gators and Bulldogs. 

Brinson announced his commitment Saturday afternoon on Twitter.

Brinson previously committed to Georgia, but de-committed four months ago. He also reported scholarship offers from Alabama, Oklahoma, Florida State and Miami. 

Brinson carries a 4-star prospect rating from the 247Sports Composite. Rivals has him as a 3-star. Regardless, he provides the Bulldogs with another much-needed interior defensive lineman for the 2020 class.

The past two commitments to Georgia have come from defensive tackles. Jalen Carter, the No. 68 overall prospect in the country, committed to Georgia in May. The Bulldogs landed three commits last month, as 5-star outside linebacker Mekhail Sherman and 4-star offensive tackle Tate Ratledge also committed to Georgia. 

Brinson’s addition moves Georgia’s 2020 recruiting-class ranking up to No. 4 nationally. All 11 commits are rated as 4- or 5-star prospects. Of those 11, four are defensive tackles, as Brinson joins Carter, Jamil Burroughs and Nazir Stackhouse in the class. 

Brinson originally is from Chatham County, but left to attend IMG before his junior season. He has attended three camps at UGA and plans to attend again this summer. 

This is shaping to be a big recruiting weekend for Georgia as it has a number of top prospects on campus, highlighted by 4-star guard Andrew Raym. He is the No. 2 guard in the country and the No. 1 prospect in the state of Oklahoma.
