Branson Robinson is a four-star running back in the 2022 recruiting class from Mississippi, which makes him the No. 1 player in the state. Ever since there was even a hint of a chance of the Dawgs landing the No. 3 running back in the country, they've made him a priority in this cycle. 

Robinson was one of the first waves of recruits to take an official visit to Georgia after the dead period was lifted at the beginning of June. Clemson landed an official visit from Robinson the following week, while defending national champion Alabama got the latest official visit from Robinson this past weekend. 

Robinson will round out his official visits with a trip to Tennessee this weekend. 

He announced on Twitter Monday night that he would reveal his decision on July 22 in honor of his late uncle.

In April, the Madison, Miss., native listed his top five of Alabama, Clemson, LSU, Georgia and Tennessee. All five schools are expected to host Robinson for an official visit before he makes his decision. As things are set up now, it appears that LSU will have the chance to see Robinson last. Seeing a prospect right before he makes a decision is something Georgia has excelled at in the past as they've successfully flipped many of their top targets. 

During Robinson's visit to Athens in the beginning of June, he was pictured with four other top 2022 classmates: quarterback Gunner Stockton (UGA commit), wide receivers Kojo Antwi (undecided) and De'Nylon Morrissette (UGA commit) and tight end Oscar Delp (undecided). Those players have since been nicknamed Georgia's version of the Fab Five. 

With two out of the five members already committed to UGA, Robinson would be a huge get for the Dawgs class as he would become not only the second running back to be taken in the class, next to four-star Jordan James, but he would also represent the third "Fab Five" to commit to the Bulldogs.
