2016 three-star wide receiver Darion Anderson has decommitted from the Georgia Bulldogs. Anderson announced his decision Monday afternoon on Twitter.

“I have decided to de-commit from the university of Georgia. I want to thank coach Lily(sic) and the university of Georgia for the opportunity,” Anderson tweeted. “After talking with my parents and coach we’ve decided its best. With that being said I am reopening my recruiting process. I will not be talking to the media about this decision.”

Anderson is the second 2016 UGA recruit to decommit today. This morning, 2017 four-star quarterback Bailey Hockman announced his decision to re-open his recruitment.

Cornerback Malek Young and running back Devwah Whaley, both 2016 recruits, have also decommitted from UGA since Mark Richt was fired.

Anderson (6-1, 170) committed to the Bulldogs in March over Cincinnati. He also had offers from Boston College, Georgia Southern, Kennesaw State, Kentucky, Marshall, Samford, and Wake Forest.

In the 247Sports Composite rankings, Darion Anderson is listed as a 3-star recruit, the No. 62 wide receiver, and the No. 338 overall recruit.

With the recent decommitments, the Georgia Bulldogs are now down to 14 commitments for 2016 and three for 2017.

    I was born in Georgia. I was born a Dawg. I’ve always bled red and black. I’ve always hated Florida, Auburn, Tennessee, Tech and South Carolina. I don’t understand decommit. I don’t understand a Georgia kid who gets the opportunity to put that G on his helmet and he decommits. I don’t get it. All I can say is he’s not a Dawg. He doesn’t bleed red and black. That’s fine by me. Go somewhere else. If you don’t want the G on your helment and you don’t want to represent this State, don’t do it. Go somewhere else.

    Well said. What I don’t understand is the whole posting it on Twitter. Did we recruit you through Twitter? All of these Twitter decimmitments remind me of Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin. Let’s just call it a “conscious unrecruiting”.
