Three-star S Dominick Sanders flips from UCF to Georgia


On Monday night, the Georgia Bulldogs got a commitment from three-star safety Dominick Sanders.

“I’m excited it’s over,” Sanders told 24/7 Sports. “I feel like it’s a good place for me.”

Sanders, who attends Tucker High School in Tucker, Georgia, has been interested in Georgia throughout the recruiting process. However, after visiting Orlando, Florida to check out the Central Florida Knights  less than two weeks ago, he made his pledge to head coach George O’Leary and his Fiesta Bowl champion Knights.

However, after  talking to new Georgia defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt, who helped the Florida State Seminoles win the BCS National Championship earlier this month as their defensive coordinator (and has actually been on the staff of the last three national championship teams), Sanders knew it was the place for him.

“I knew about him at Florida State. I knew his personality. I just knew a lot about him at FSU,” Sanders said of Pruitt.

Sanders is considered the 69th best safety and 73rd best player in Georgia, according to 24/7 Sports’ composite rankings.
