Georgia added a major defensive piece to its 2022 recruiting class as four-star cornerback Julian Humphrey committed to the Bulldogs live on CBS Sports HQ. Humphrey, a product of Clear Lake High School in Houston, Texas, committed to Kirby Smart's team over a group of finalists that included Florida, LSU and Texas A&M.

"I felt like Georgia, with all the experience the coaches have, could take me to the next level," said Humphrey of his decision. 

With elite size and speed for a defensive back recruit, Humphrey is viewed as a potential NFL draft prospect down the road. The industry standard 247Sports Composite rating lists Humphrey as the No. 12 cornerback and No. 94 overall player in the Class of 2022.

Humphrey is a two-time all-district honoree at League City Clear Falls, which plays in the biggest classification of Texas high school football. He also runs a verified 10.55 in the 100-meter and 21.17 in the 200-meter. 247Sports National Recruiting Analyst Chris Singletary has this scouting report of Humphrey: 

Muscular player with a good broad shoulders. Along with a powerful build lower half you have an athlete with twitch and burst. With his long arms and wingspan his has added tools to his 6-foot-1 build that benefit him in both man and zone coverage. Possessing elite speed with verified track times you see that it is able to translate to the field in his playmaking ability. Good with eye placement in man coverage as well as the ability to stay in phase with the receiver. In zone coverage he shows his instincts to key and diagnose with leverage on the receiver in his area with solid route recognition. Willing tackler that is not afraid to make a play. Solid with ability to flip his hips, cod and transition out of his peddle to break on the ball. He has done a good job of trending upward from his junior year with being more consistent and added strength.

Humphrey's commitment vaults the Bulldogs back into the nation's No. 1 recruiting class with the Early Signing Period just a month away. He becomes the ninth top-100 commitment -- six of which are on defense -- and the program's new headliner at defensive back.
