Four-star linebacker Roquan Smith, who committed to UCLA on National Signing Day, officially signed with Georgia on Friday.

The commitment ends a recruitment that has received plenty of attention since national signing day on Feb. 4. Smith initially committed to UCLA live on ESPNU, but did not sign and fax in his letter of intent. Instead, he backed off his verbal pledge and reopened his recruitment among the four schools.
He backed off the Bruins after hearing that UCLA defensive coordinator and primary recruiter Jeff Ulbrich was likely headed to the Atlanta Falcons, which ultimately happened on Monday. While Smith was already torn between the Bulldogs and Bruins the night before announcing and decided on the Bruins only the morning of Feb. 4, the uncertainty surrounding Ulbrich's status put an end to the chances Smith would fax in a letter of intent on national signing day.
