Although Walker was committed to Alabama entering the day, Tennessee is the one this hurts the most.
Georgia now has a record-tying eight five-star recruits for the 2018 class!
Georgia's claim to the No. 1 college football recruiting class in the country is now beyond contention.
The top unsigned prospect is Patrick Surtain Jr., a cornerback from Florida whose father played in the NFL.
Campbell is the fourth defensive back to commit in Georgia's class of 2018, and the third from the Miami area.
The Miami pipeline is noteworthy, considering Georgia's No. 1 cornerback, Deandre Baker, is also from Miami. Campbell's recruiting pedigree suggests earning early playing time wouldn't have been an issue regardless of which program he had chosen.
" Still a lot to unfold and it's not as if we're lacking storylines, we're just lacking storylines in terms of sheer numbers just because the player pool shrunk so much", said Tom Luginbill, ESPN's National Recruiting Director. With a seventh five-star recruit signing with the Bulldogs, the answer, incredibly, is yes.
The 6-foot-4, 230-pound Walker is the No. 6 rated player in the state of Georgia, giving the Bulldogs five of the top six in-state prospect.
Florida State could push to the finish with a top 10 class. Campbell joins quarterback Justin Fields, running back Zamir White, offensive lineman Cade Mays, outside linebacker Brenton Cox, offensive lineman Jamaree Salyer and outside linebacker Adam Anderson in five-star status.
