Roquan Smith has committed to being a Georgia Bulldog.

The Macon, GA linebacker had said that he was going to be going to UCLA at National Signing Day, but after the Pac-12 team’s defensive coordinator, Jeff Ulbrich, had lied to him about taking the Atlanta Falcons DC’s job, he decided to revisit his options.

He re-opened his commitments, looking at Georgia, UCLA, Michigan and Texas A&M, but eventually opted to play in the SEC.

As you could imagine it’s been tough lately,” he told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution in a statement. “But I am relieved to say that I am officially committed to The University Of Georgia 100 percent.

Smith signed a financial aid agreement but not a letter of intent, which means that he can back out of his commitment with UGA before he comes to the school for summer school in June if any UGA coaches leave Athens for jobs elsewhere.

After losing offensive coordinator Mike Bobo in the offseason and hiring Brian Schottenheimer as his replacement from the NFL, Mark Richt will be praying that lightning doesn’t strike on his defensive side.
