Georgia football received its third commitment in four days on Monday, when four-star linebacker C.J. Allen chose the Bulldogs over Tennessee, Auburn, Florida, LSU and more.

Allen joins five-star corner A.J. Harris and kicker Peyton Woodring as the Dawgs’ latest pledges.

Allen, out of Lamar County High School in Barnesville, Ga., chose UGA just one day after visiting Tennessee in Knoxville.

Allen (6-foot-1, 217 pounds) is a multi-sport athlete who participates in both basketball and track & field on top of playing both offense and defense for the Trojans.

In his junior season, Allen racked up 91 tackles and three interceptions, while rushing for 1,080 yards and 16 touchdowns at running back.

Here’s a look at Allen’s 2021 season:

The Bulldogs now have 12 commits in the 2023 class, and have jumped from 10th in the nation to No. 3 in under a week.
