PLANTATION, Fla. — Tyson Campbell made his decision on National Signing Day.

The nation’s No. 2 CB prospect on the 247Sports Composite ranks as the nation’s No. 12 overall player for this cycle. He is a tremendous prospect with both great size and speed.

Campbell was clocked during track season last spring with a time of 10.4 seconds in the 100 meters. He also got the chance to meet NFL All-Pro Richard Sherman at the Nike Opening this summer. Campbell was heading into his senior season of high school ball, but he was already taller than the NFL veteran that is most often seen as having elite size for that position.

He made that choice from American Heritage Academy in South Florida. It was a contested decision that included some late indecision. DawgNation was told late on Tuesday night that the decision had not yet been made. 

Was it going to be Alabama, Georgia or Miami? Campbell made that decision live on ESPNU in front of a school ceremony. It was a noted feat for the same American Heritage program which sent former UGA players Isaiah McKenzie, Sony Michel and Marshall Morgan to Athens.

The decision gives the Bulldogs their seventh prospect who carries that elite 5-star rating in the class of 2018. According to the 247Sports Composite rankings, that’s the modern recruit for the number of 5-star signees in the same class.

The decision very likely gives the Bulldogs a strong foothold on winding up the day with the nation’s top-rated class for this cycle. Ohio State held the top spot going into the day, but the Bulldogs are now expected to close out the day with the top-rated class.
