Georgia is now up to 19 commitments in the 2025 class after adding its second defensive back in as many days. The Bulldogs landed Rockvale (Mufreesboro, Tenn.) safety Jaylan Morgan on Monday, beating out Florida, Ole Miss, Mississippi State, and close to two dozen other offers.

At a shade under 6-feet tall and 190 pounds, Morgan is ranked as the nation’s No. 253 overall prospect and No. 24 safety according to the On3 Industry Rankings, a weighted average that includes all four websites that publish recruiting rankings. He’s the No. 6 prospect in Tennessee.

Georgia got an up-close look at Morgan during the spring evaluation period as safeties coach and co-defensive coordinator Travaris Robinson made his way up to the Nashville area. A look at his junior film shows why the Bulldogs became enamored with the four-star talent.

Morgan took multiple visits to Georgia panning from the middle of may to the end of June. He was in Athens for the Scavenger Hunt on May 18 and then again for an official visit a little over a month later. The Bulldogs used those visit to sell their vision for Morgan, a guy who could play safety or STAR/nickel in Athens.

With that said, Morgan knew once his official visits were over that he was ready to be done with the process. He told DawgsHQ’s Jeremy Johnson recently that setting a decision date gave him peace of mind.

“I feel relieved that it’s over with,” Morgan said. “It was putting a little stress on me but I feel like I’m blessed to be in the spot that I’m in. A lot of kids probably wish that they’re in the position that I’m in and I’m thankful and really blessed. I’m also excited that it’s coming to an end because I get to go to a school that I’ve always dreamed of since I was a little kid. I’ve always wanted to play college football.”

Morgan is a two-way standout at the high school level, starring as a receiver and a multi-dimensional defensive back. He’s Georgia’s third defensive back commitment of the 2025 class, joining Shamari Earls (Thomas Dale; Chester, Va.) and Todd Robinson (Valdosta; Valdosta, Ga.) Both Earls and Robinson saw huge jumps in the new On300, which was released on Monday. Earls went from No. 69 overall to No. 19 while Robinson went from unranked to No. 190 overall.
