Georgia added a fifth top 50 prospect to the 2022 division on Sunday when ESPN 300 full-back Jaheim Singletary announced his commitment to Dawgs.
Singletary, the 16th recruit overall, is a 6-foot-1, 175-pound prospective student from Riverside High School in Jacksonville, Florida. He was 3rd in his class, and chose Georgia over Florida, Miami and LSU.
“In the end it was just the love they showed, unconditionally, it never stopped for them,” Singletary said. “They just kept going since day one, so I feel like in my heart, talking to my family, that Georgia is the right place.”
Singletary committed Ohio State earlier but was decommissioned from the Buckeyes on August 1.
He recently visited Georgia and Florida and said Georgia was already the lead and likely his pick, although Sunday’s dismissal of Florida coach Dan Mullen influenced the decision. his. Singletary says it was coincidental that he committed the same day Mullen was ousted.
“I actually planned to do it today because it’s my mom’s birthday, so I planned to do it today just to surprise her,” Singletary said. “But then when I saw the move that Dan Mullen was fired, I would say it would make the job easier and take the pressure off me, because that’s also the head coach playing the role. important.”
Georgia’s dominance in defense this season has played a big part in his interest in joining the show. Dawgs is number one in the College Football Playoff standings, and the defense is number one for yards allowed per game, second for yards allowed per game and third for yards allowed per game.
Singletary hopes to be a part of that success in the future and sees an opportunity to get better when he goes to school.
“I knew I could go to a team where I could work hard and play for a winning team,” Singletary said. “I went out [to Georgia] for a few visits and I just love the way they play. Energy, defense, that’s all. What Kirby Smart is doing with the show, it’s a great feeling. “
With Singletary’s involvement, Georgia now has 13 ESPN 300 commitments, five of which rank in the top 50, including five-star athlete Malaki Starks, linebacker Branson Robinson, Singletary, linebacker Jalon Walker and full-back Mykel Williams.
