Hit the jump for more news and notes on the 2019 recruiting class.
OFF THE BOARD
Jonathan Allen – OT – Dayton (OH) Dunbar: Allen committed to Cincinnati.
Khris Bogle – DE – Fort Lauderdale (FL) Cardinal Gibbons: Bogle flipped from Alabama to Florida in a somewhat surprising move after committing to Alabama at the All-American Bowl. He’s the #71 overall player in the class.
Jerrion Ealy – RB – Flowood (MS) Jackson Prep: Flowood, a former Mississippi State commit, was expected to go to Clemson but ended up signing with Ole Miss. He was a 5-star and the lone standout running back at the Under Armour All-American Game.
Isaiah Foskey – DE – Concord (CA) De La Salle: Foskey committed to Notre Dame as a defensive end. Michigan had been looking at him as a tight end. Foskey is a former teammate of one-time Michigan tight end Devin Asiasi, who is now at UCLA.
Demarcus Griffin – CB – Charlotte (NC) Olympic: Griffin committed to Utah State.
Daequan Hardy – CB – Pittsburgh (PA) Penn Hills: Hardy signed with Penn State.

Adonis Otey – CB – Murfreesboro (TN) Blackman: Otey flipped from Arkansas to USC.
George Pickens – WR – Hoover (AL) Hoover: Pickens flipped from Auburn to Georgia. This was probably the biggest newsmaker of National Signing Day when the long-time Auburn commit picked the Bulldogs. He’s a 5-star and #24 overall in the class.
Matthew Pola-Mao – DT – Chandler (AZ) Chandler: Pola-Mao committed to Kansas State.
Garmon Randolph – TE – Jefferson (GA) Jefferson: Randolph committed to Baylor.
Jammie Robinson – S – Leesburg (GA) Lee County: Robinson committed to South Carolina.

The early signing period in December has really screwed up what used to be a very exciting first week of February, so while there’s not a ton of build-up to this day anymore, there are still some things happening in the world of 2019 recruiting. I’ll break down some of the more interesting situations.
George Campbell III, WR (Florida State): Campbell struggled once again with injuries, and when he was healthy, he played in seven games and ended with 4 catches for 42 yards on the year. Florida State went 5-7.
Shaun Crawford, CB (Notre Dame): Crawford missed the entire season with a torn ACL, the third ACL injury of his football career.
Messiah DeWeaver, QB (East Mississippi Community College): DeWeaver completed 181/266 passes (68%) for 1,735 yards, 10 touchdowns, and 4 interceptions; he also ran 88 times for 110 yards (1.3 YPC) and 2 touchdowns. EMCC went 12-0 and won the NJCAA national championship. At the time of this 247 Sports article, he had scholarship offers to play for Akron, Bowling Green, Central Michigan, Louisiana-Lafayette, Ole Dominion, Southern Mississippi, and Toledo; he just announced on Twitter a couple days ago that he would be transferring to Old Dominion.
