At one time, Deyon "Smoke" Bouie was the third commitment to Georgia's 2022 recruiting class. Bouie committed to Georgia in November, 2020, joining a class that involved Cedric Washington and Marquis Groves-Killebrew.
The 5-foot-11 athlete out of Bainbridge, Ga., the hometown of Georgia head coach Kirby Smart, was recruited to Georgia because of his high upside at defensive back. Bouie showed the ability on tape to play running back, receiver and cornerback, making him a highly sought-after prospect.
After the recent decommitment of Bear Alexander, the five-star defensive tackle from Texas, Bouie is the second highly-touted five-star to back off his commitment to Georgia to look into other schools.
Both Bouie and Alexander were on campus taking a visit to Texas A&M together last weekend. It seems the two have cultivated a relationship throughout this recruiting process. However, the recent visit to Texas A&M makes it seem like a potential destination for the five-star athlete out of Bainbridge, Ga.
