Tyrion Ingram-Dawkins saw his high school and Gaffney High team quarantined this week.
This did not stop the No. 1 player in South Carolina (247Sports Composite) from making his decision in college during this somewhat unrelated period of his high school experience.
The DT prospect for 6 feet and 305 pounds made its choice in college on Friday afternoon. The 4-star potential did so through his Instagram account and a live stream of CBS Sports to a national audience. His last four choices were:
Georgia. North Carolina. South Carolina. Tennessee.

The choice here: Georgia.
Ingram-Dawkins made the decision with several engagements in Georgia, several other major recruitment missions in other classes, and several current bulldogs watching the live stream of Instagram from his decision.

Ingram-Dawkins ranks No. 5 in the country with its net rating of 247Sports. This puts it as a general perspective for the nation number 86. Its 247Sports Composite values for these categories define it as the number 14 of the country of the nation and as a general perspective for the number 178.
“The program I go to to get a hard-working player and a person who is dedicated to working on and off the field,” he said.
With this decision, Bulldogs already have 18 public commitments for the 2021 cycle. Ingram-Dawkins becomes the 10th highest rated set in this bulldog class.
This commitment brings Georgia even closer to the LSU for the overall position of № 5 in the 2021 team composition rating for the 2021 cycle.
TID is now the tenth out-of-state Bulldog on board in 2021. He is also the 15th of those 18 commitments to reside in the state within the SEC’s huge recruitment footprint for Deep South.

Tyrion Ingram-Dawkins: Why this bet matters so much
Let’s highlight a few names to refer to the subtitle above.
Jordan Davis. Maring Herring. Julian Rochester Devonte Wyatt.
The bulldog had to attract several new recruits with the combined size and speed that Ingram-Dawkins will bring to the program. It will help tackle the expected migration of security lines from the 2020 list.
He joins 3-star prospect Marlin Dean and 4-star Jonathan Jefferson as a defensive line commitment so far for this class. Mason Smith, a 5-star DT from Louisiana, is the biggest remaining target of a D-line bulldog in the 2021 class.
Ingram-Dawkins will achieve this level of athleticism of the 305-kilogram brand.

Georgia coach Trey Scott should be seen as an irrevocable set in this decision. Ingram-Dawkins, although several times shifting the timeline of his decision, managed to visit UGA before the global pandemic and the NCAA ban on campus visits.

The decision here marks a victory for Georgia in a direct battle for potential recruitment of the “Trench Mob” with South Carolina for recruits from the state of Palmetto. Gamecocks have, in fact, been defending their borders lately with Georgia’s strong interest in future signatories Carolina in the 4-star Rick Sandidge (Class of 2018); 5-star Zacch Pickens (2019) and 5-star Jordan Burch (2020) from the end.
