    Max Wray has decommitted from Georgia. The news follows a trip that the offensive tackle took to Alabama.


    The 2017 college football season will be a big one for Georgia and second-year head coach Kirby Smart.

    Last year was an adjustment period for the Bulldogs, transitioning to a new head coach, new quarterback and new faces across the roster. But expectations are high for the upcoming fall.

    But if the ‘Dawgs have any hope of competing for a national title in the future, top recruiting classes are needed. Smart and Co. may have suffered a small setback on that front, though, as 4-star offensive tackle Max Wray from Franklin (Tenn.) High School decommitted from the school on Friday, per 247Sports.

    The news comes on the heels of a visit taken by Max, his younger brother Jake and his parents to Alabama. It was an unofficial visit that featured time spent with Nick Saban and the Crimson Tide staff. Wray followed that visit up with a trip to Clemson to meet with Tigers head coach Dabo Swinney.

    Wray, who is ranked as the No. 4 offensive tackle in the country in the Class of 2018, had been committed to Georgia since March 2016. According to his father, Wray is backing off of his UGA offer as he continues to evaluate which program would best ready him to play offensive tackle in the NFL.

    The 6-foot-6, 287-pounder is slated to play in the U.S. Army All-American Bowl and has become a top target for major power programs across the country. Saban and his staff have made Wray a priority in recent weeks. In addition to the Alabama and Clemson visits, Wray wants to visit Texas, Tennessee and LSU during his upcoming spring break.

    Wray has also landed offers from notable programs such as Oregon, Auburn and USC, among others.

    There is good reason why Wray has become highly sought as a prospect. He is very coordinated and has been growing into his frame very well. He has good feet with sound technique, so he can develop into a true left tackle at the college level if he continues on this trajectory.
