Five-star running back Kendall Milton announced his verbal commitment to Georgia over Alabama, LSU and Ohio State.

The 6-foot-1 1/2, 229-pound recruit from Fresno, Calif., is ranked No. 4 among running backs and No. 22 overall in the 2020 class by the 247Sports.com composite.

Milton revealed his commitment on his Twitter feed Monday night.

“I’m very excited about my decision and feel really good about Georgia,” Milton told 247Sports.com. “I knew on my official visit to Georgia that I found a home and that was the place for me. I took a lot of visits, unofficial and official, and the vibe I had at Georgia was like no other place I visited.

“All my visits were great, don’t get me wrong, but Georgia was special. Georgia had everything I was looking for in a school, all the factors that were most important to me, they had. Everything just felt right to me when I was there, and I know this is the best decision for me.”

Milton is the third five-star recruit to commit to the Bulldogs’ 2020 class, along with linebacker Mekhail Sherman of Washington, D.C., and offensive lineman Broderick Jones of Lithonia, Ga.
