Georgia scored a major in-state recruiting victory this evening. The Bulldogs landed a five-star prospect over a number of SEC rivals.

Thomaston (Ga.) Upson-Lee five-star defensive tackle Travon Walker announced his commitment to Georgia in a ceremony a short time ago. Walker is the No. 2 defensive tackle in the 2019 class and the fifth-ranked player in the state of Georgia, according to 247Sports' Composite Rankings.

Walker chose Georgia over Alabama, Auburn, Clemson and South Carolina.

Kirby Smart celebrated the commitment on Twitter.

Walker is the third-highest rated commit in Georgia's 2019 class. Amazingly, the Bulldogs have the fourth-best class nationally as of now, and only the third-best in the SEC behind Alabama and Texas A&M.
