Elite wide receiver recruit Luther Burden has set his commitment date for Oct. 20.

The Georgia Bulldogs are among the top three schools for the five-star wide receiver who is a member of the class of 2022. The class’s No. 6 overall player recently decommitted from the Oklahoma Sooners.

Burden previously played high school football for Cardinal Ritter College Prep in St. Louis, Missouri. This season, Burden is playing for East St. Louis High School in East St. Louis, Illinois, which is located just across the state line.

Burden committed to Oklahoma nearly a year ago, but changed his mind this summer. Surprisingly the Sooners are no longer among the top schools for Burden.

Burden received major interest from powerhouse college football programs across the country. He is the top-ranked recruit in Illinois and the second-ranked wide receiver recruit in the country.

Kirby Smart and Georgia football have 17 commitments in the class of 2022, and Georgia already has commitments from three wide receivers. But there’s always room for an elite prospect. Burden would rank as Georgia’s top-ranked recruit in the class of 2022.

The five-star wide receiver announced his commitment date via his Twitter account:

Burden took visits to all three of his top schools this summer. Missouri, Alabama and Georgia are Burden’s latest top schools. Where will he go?
