Georgia football received good news on the recruiting front Monday evening as Aliou Bah announced his commitment.
A Florida State pledge since May, Bah decommitted from the Noles on Oct. 16, and it didn’t take him too long to flip where he wanted to go instead.
This commitment gives the Dawgs their second pledge in five days after 4-star tight end Oscar Delp announced on Oct. 13.
According to Rivals Sports, Bah is a 4-star Rivals 250 tackle from IMG Academy. He ranks as the No. 24 offensive lineman and the No. 30 player in Florida. However, that isn’t what is most impressive about him — it’s his monstrous size that makes him an excellent pick up for the Dawgs.
Bah stands at 6-6 and 329-pounds, making him a perfect candidate for a Matt Luke offensive line. When there is a guy with that much size and talent available, Georgia should go after him.
The Dawgs need more depth on the line, and he has the upside to be just that.
After watching his film, it’s obvious why Luke and the coaching staff went after this young man. He has outstanding hip work and footwork. Bah can keep his man in front of him and handle the moves defensive linemen throw at him.
To be his size, Bah is extremely athletic and can easily push his defenders out of the way. He has a lot of upside, and his ceiling is high. With the way Luke develops players, Bah will fit right in because he seems coachable.
He made an unofficial visit to Georgia back on Oct. 2 for the Arkansas game, and it was a good one to attend because the Dawgs bulldozed the Hogs 37-0. It isn’t surprising to see him pick Georgia after seeing that atmosphere and how good the Dawgs are in person.
Bah gives the Dawgs three offensive linemen for the 2022 class as he joins 3-star Griffin Scroggs, who committed in early August, and Jacob Hood, who pledged at the end of August.
After adding Bah to the recruiting class, the Dawgs rank on Rivals as the No. 4 overall recruiting class behind No.1 Notre Dame, No. 2 Alabama and No. 3 Penn State. However, it’s still pretty early in the recruiting battles, so things could drastically change in the coming months.
Head coach Kirby Smart knows how to build recruiting classes, and if he wants to stay successful, they must keep that up. By adding Bah to this already impressive class, it seems the Bulldogs are right on track.
Georgia’s performance on the field isn’t going unnoticed by the recruits, and the rest of October could be an incredible month in terms of recruiting for the Dawgs.
