Five-star OLB Mondon commits to Georgia

Five-star outside linebacker Smael Mondon committed to Georgia on Wednesday.

The nation’s No. 2 outside linebacker and No. 27 overall recruit according to the 247Sports composite, Mondon played at Paulding County High School in Dallas, Ga.

Mondon had offers from about three dozen Power Five programs and ultimately chose the Bulldogs over Auburn, LSU, Tennessee and Florida.

The 6-foot-3 Mondon becomes Georgia’s third five-star recruit in the Class of 2021, joining tackle Amarius Mims (Cochran, Ga.) and quarterback Brock Vandagriff (Bogart, Ga.).

The class is now ranked No. 3 in the SEC — trailing Alabama and LSU — and No. 5 in the nation, per 247Sports.
