Isaiah Gibson stays at Georgia after withdrawing his commitment from USC

Four-star defensive end Isaiah Gibson, the 28th candidate in the 2025 ESPN 300, committed to Georgia on Monday, six days after decommitting from Lincoln Riley's recruiting class at USC.

Gibson is the third-best defensive end in the 2025 class, according to ESPN rankings. The 6-foot-4 edge rusher from Warner Robins, Georgia, had been with the Trojans since March 24 before decommitting last Tuesday. He is the 12th ESPN 300 prospect to commit to the Bulldogs in 2025 and the second-highest-rated recruit in Kirby Smart's class, behind only in-state outside linebacker Zayden Walker (No. 15 in the top 300).

Gibson totaled 17 sacks in his junior season last fall and visited the University of California a few times this spring after committing to USC, with stops at Georgia, Auburn, South Carolina, Tennessee, Florida and Ohio State before withdrawing his commitment last week. After leaving the Trojans' class of 2025, Gibson planned to visit Oklahoma but then canceled it and split his weekend between trips to Ohio State and Georgia.

Gibson also joins a Bulldogs recruiting class that ranked 13th in ESPN's most recent team rankings for the 2025 cycle.

He is the latest addition to a talented defensive class for Georgia. Joining him on defense are coordinator Glenn Schumann Walker (No. 2 outside linebacker in 2025), outside linebacker Jadon Perlotte (No. 9 OLB), defensive tackles Christian Garrett (No. 8 DT) and Stephon Shivers (No. 22 DT), and defensive end Darren Ikinnagbon, the 20th-ranked edge rusher in the 2025 class.
