Stevenson committed to the Bulldogs on Saturday and joins a 2019 class that ranks second in the country, trailing only Alabama, according to 247 Sports before the All-American Bowl. Stevenson is one of five players at the All-American Bowl who has committed to play for the Bulldogs.
“[Kirby Smart] just brought that spark I was looking for in a coach,” Stevenson said of the Bulldogs’ head coach. “He brought that to me and all the other coaches beside him.”
Georgia started the year strong by going 11-1. But then, the team lost in the SEC Championship to Alabama, and followed that up with a defeat to Texas in the Allstate Sugar Bowl to finish 11-3.
Stevenson ranks as the fourth-best cornerback in the 2019 recruiting class, 247 Sports reported. He also ranks sixth in his state of Florida and 38th overall.
