Joshua Braun likely to De-Commit from Georgia, Rumors are Florida

Brooks Austin

Kirby Smart and his staff are out on the recruiting trail as we speak and we are hearing from multiple sources that Joshua Braun - who committed to Georgia back in June - is expected to de-commit from the Bulldogs and is linked to the Florida Gators. 

The Bulldog Maven received word from multiple sources that the Georgia Bulldog staff has canceled their planned in-home visit with the nation's 22nd ranked offensive tackle. 

Braun's de-commitment can assumably be connected to the recent departure from offensive line coach Sam Pittman. Though, Kirby Smart did the absolute best he could in such circumstances. Going out and bringing on Matt Luke in less than 48 hours is incredible. 

Luke has already visited a handful of commits including Tate Ratledge in Rome, Georgia this morning. He and Smart visited with Ratledge after the big tackle released a rather concerning tweet following Pittman's departure. 

We forecasted this kind of thing to happen. With Sam Pittman having developed these relationships with these kids and now being gone, it was only a matter of time before another school like Florida swooped in. 

After all, they didn't have very far to go. Braun is Florida's 49th ranked player and is expected to become a Florida Gator.

The UGA OL class was one of my favorite committed position groups in 2020. Braun is a hit for sure and yes it's looking like UF all the way here. Gators were a semifinalist initially and appear to be missing out on the other top in-state target to fill the class in Marcus Dumervil (LSU the favorite).

Broderick Jones and Auburn something to track for traditional signing period as well. We hear that's a bigger battle than is let on.


Not surprised. Even if Pittman had stay, it did not seem like they would keep all five commits. That huge offensive line that was supposed to be one of the best in the land showed that they were overrated.
