Georgia football's 2018 recruiting class is the best in the country. The Bulldogs' 18 class had 26 commitments, including seven from five-star prospects.

One UGA commit will reportedly not be a part of this year's class, though. His enrollment is being delayed.

247Sports is reporting that defensive lineman commit Tramel Walthour is going the JUCO route.

They confirmed the news this morning:

Defensive lineman Tramel Walthour has signed with Hutchinson Community College in Kansas.

"We have signed him," said Hutchinson head coach Rion Rhoades. "He will be here for summer school in July. I think he will do well here."

Dawgs247 has not confirmed whether Walthour will take the traditional junior college route or a similar path to Devonte Wyatt, who signed with Hutchinson last year and was ultimately deemed a full qualifier after attaining the proper test score before enrolling at the junior college. That allowed Wyatt to enroll at Georgia after one full semester of transferable credits with a 2.5 GPA in those classes.

This isn't a huge blow to Georgia's class, but it's disappointing nonetheless.

The Bulldogs open their season on Sept. 1 against Austin Peay.
