4-Star Cornerback William Poole III Chooses Georgia

With spring games taking place at many top programs, plenty of elite recruits are on campuses around the country, and we've already seen a few commitments. Now, one of the nation's top cornerbacks joins that group. William Poole III, who was also considering Alabama, Clemson, Florida, and Florida State, committed to his home state Georgia Bulldogs this afternoon.

Poole, an Atlanta native, spoke to 247Sportsabout the decision.

"In my heart, I felt like this was the place I needed to be. The home feeling and support - knowing that at Georgia every Saturday I will have multiple members of my family there. That really helps the transition out of the home for freshmen. To be honest, when I looked at the plusses and minuses closely, there were no minuses for Georgia."

Poole is rated as the No. 9 player in Atlanta by 247Sports.

Kirby Smart continues to impress early in his tenure at UGA.
