ATHENS, Ga. - Though the day began with two surprise commitments, not every major decision has fallen in UGA's favor on National Signing Day.
Andrew Williams, a four-star defensive end according to the 247sports Composite rankings, has announced that he will be attending Auburn. The touted 6-foot-4, 250-pound prospect out of McDonough, Ga., chose the Tigers over Clemson and UGA despite a late push by Bulldogs defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt, who got Williams on campus for an official visit last weekend.
Georgia has already received signed letters of intent from all 20 of their verbal commitments, which now include receiver Isaiah McKenzie and tight end Hunter Atkinson. The school announced that is has received signed letters of intent from offensive tackle Dyshon Sims and cornerback Malkom Parrish, as well.
With Williams out of the picture, Georgia's collective focus will shift to Norcross defensive end Lorenzo Carter, who appears to have narrowed his list of schools down to UGA, Alabama and Florida. A consensus five-star recruit, his decision could make an impressive National Signing Day even better for the Bulldogs.
Carter will announce his decision at 3:30 p.m. ET.
