Akinola Ogunbiyi’s recruitment has been all over the place. The four-star Texas native decommitted from Texas A&M last month.
He had been pledged to the Aggies since June 2018. He has been getting serious attention from other major programs in the last few months.
Back in February, Ohio State came through with an offer. At the time, while still committed to the Aggies, he called it his “dream school.”
Ogunbiyi’s new decision is in, but he isn’t a Buckeye.
This afternoon, Akinola Ogunbiyi announced his commitment to the Georgia Bulldogs.
He made the announcement on Twitter:
