Georgia’s annual recruiting event, dubbed “Dawg Night,” kicked off earlier today and it has already resulted in a verbal commitment.
2015 athlete Shaquery Wilson, who attends Coral Gables High School in Coral Gables, Florida, gave his pledge to Mark Richt and the Bulldogs.
“Yes sir, I have committed to the Bulldogs as a WR/DB,” Wilson told Trent Smallwood of Bulldawg Illustrated.
Wilson was recruited to Athens as a defensive back by defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt, but as mentioned, he will also get the opportunity to play wide receiver.
Wilson (6-1, 189) had a long list of offers, including Arkansas, Indiana, Louisville, Northern Illinois, Purdue, Syracuse, UCF, Virginia, West Virginia, and Wisconsin.
“I love Georgia because they gave me the opportunity to play receiver or DB,” Wilson told 247Sports.com on Thursday. “I want to play defense. I’d rather play defense. I think I’ll last longer at DB.”
Rivals.com rates Shaquery Wilson as a three-star recruit and the No. 52 wide receiver in the country. He is ranked as the No. 71 prospect in Florida and the No. 60 wide receiver in the country in the 247Sports.com Composite Rankings.
