Georgia adds commitment No. 18
By Derek Tyson
The Georgia Bulldogs picked up a commitment from three-star athlete Dominick Sanders (Tucker, Ga./Tucker) on Monday night. The news was first reported by 247Sports.
Sanders had been committed to UCF since October, but after he took a visit to Auburn without informing the UCF coaching staff, the Knights decided to move on from Sanders. He was set to visit Georgia this weekend but decided to go ahead and pull the trigger. Sanders had also been receiving interest from Missouri recently.
The 5-foot-11, 174-pound athlete could play multiple positions, but the Bulldogs are recruiting him as a defensive back.
"Sanders possesses decent size for an athlete,” his RecruitingNation scouting report reads. "His physical attributes will allow him to play and compete at a variety of positions. He should naturally fill out a bit more in the next couple of years.
"He plays with good strength as he will run through most arm tackles and when tackling will send the ball carrier backwards. Demonstrates good speed as on more than one occasion he has run away from everyone and broken the big play.”
With the addition of Sanders, Georgia is now up to 18 commitments, including nine that are ranked in the ESPN 300.
