Nation’s No.5 Tyrion Ingram-Dawkins makes his decision


Tyrion Ingram-Dawkins saw his high school and his team at Gaffney High quarantined this week.That didn’t stop the South Carolina No.1 player (247Sports Composite) from making his college decision during this time somewhat disconnected from his high school experience.

The 6-foot-4, 305-pound DT prospect made his college pick on Friday afternoon. The 4-star prospect did so via his Instagram account and a CBS Sports live stream to a nationwide audience. His last four choices were:

Georgia. North Carolina. Caroline from the south. Tennessee.

The choice here: Georgia.

Ingram-Dawkins made the decision with several engagements in Georgia, a few other major recruiting targets in other classes and a few current Bulldogs watching the Instagram live stream of his decision.

Ingram-Dawkins ranks 5th in DT in the country with his pure 247Sports score. This places him as the nation’s # 86 Global Perspective. His 247Sports composite values ​​for these categories place him 14th DT and 178th overall.

β€œThe program I’m going to have a hard working player and a dedicated guy on and off the pitch,” he said.

With the move, the Bulldogs now have 18 public entries for the 2021 cycle. Ingram-Dawkins becomes the 10th highest rated rookie in this Bulldog class.

This commitment brings Georgia even closer to LSU for fifth place overall in the 2021 Composite Team for the 2021 cycle.

β€œTID” is now the 10th out-of-state rookie for the Bulldogs on the 2021 table. He’s also the 15th of 18 commitments to reside in a state within the SEC’s vast recruiting footprint in the Deep South.

The Bulldogs needed to bring in several new hires with the combination of size and speed that Ingram-Dawkins will bring to the program. It will help resolve the expected defensive line migrations from the 2020 roster.

He joins 3-star prospect Marlin Dean and 4-star Jonathan Jefferson as defensive line engagements so far for this class. Maason Smith, a 5-star DT from Louisiana, is the biggest remaining D-line target for the Bulldogs in the 2021 class.

Ingram-Dawkins will bring that level of athleticism to the 305-pound mark.

Georgia line coach Tray Scott should be seen as a full recruiter in this decision. Ingram-Dawkins, although he has repeatedly pushed back his decision deadline, was able to visit the UGA ahead of the global pandemic and the NCAA’s ban on recruiting visits to campus.

The decision here marks a victory for Georgia in a one-on-one battle for a potential “Trench Mob” rookie with South Carolina for a rookie from Palmetto State. The Gamecocks had actually defended their borders well lately with a strong interest from Georgia in future Carolina signatories in 4-star Rick Sandidge (class of 2018); 5-star Zacch Pickens (2019) and 5-star Jordan Burch (2020) lately.
