07:32 AM ET 02.04 | Todd Grantham may have bolted Georgia, but, so far, his former defensive recruits have not followed him to Louisville. In fact, one player he briefly had committed to Louisville has flipped to ... Georgia. Shaquille Jones, a defensive back from Merritt Island, Fla., has reneged on his Louisville commitment and instead plans to sign with Georgia on Wednesday. Jones confirmed the news via his Twitter account on Monday afternoon. Jones, rated a two-star recruit by the 247Sports Composite, was lightly recruited until very recently, and for awhile was committed to South Alabama. When Grantham arrived at Louisville, he recruited Jones, who committed on Jan. 22. But new Georgia defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt and new assistant coach Kevin Sherrer also showed interest in Jones.

Hard to blame the kids when the adults are pressuring them to decide. Some say yes just to please the coach in the room. Best to let the kid go home and think about it.

As the article states, he was only recently recruited so sounds like he's just taking his best offer at this point
