Five-star defensive lineman Mykel Williams flipped his commitment Wednesday from Southern California to Georgia.

Williams verbally committed to the Trojans on June 15, but the Bulldogs continued to pursue the local product from Columbus, Ga. He made two recent visits to Athens and told 247Sports that it felt like the place for him.

"The relationships I have with coach Dell McGee, coach Tray Scott and how coach Kirby Smart made it feel like home to me," Williams told Dawgs247 of his decision to shift his commitment. "Georgia was consistent in their recruitment of me. They did not back off when I committed to USC in the summer. That showed me how much they wanted me at the University of Georgia."

At 6-foot-5 and 265 pounds, Williams is ranked as the No. 5 defensive lineman and No. 22 overall prospect in the Class of 2022 by the 247Sports composite. Georgia trails only Alabama in the race for the No. 1 recruiting class.
