The 6’1 190 CB from Charlotte, NC chose the Bulldogs over Michigan, South Carolina, and NC State.

The 6-foot, 175-pounder from Providence Day School in North Carolina had a final four of Michigan, Georgia, NC State and South Carolina before inevitably picking Kirby Smart and the Bulldogs.
Peal took an official visit to Michigan for the UConn game earlier this season and had the red carpet rolled out for him, as he was one of the only notable recruits to visit that weekend. But he took a couple trips to Georgia throughout the process and it always appeared he was a Bulldog lean even down the stretch of this recruitment.
With Peal now firmly committed to Georgia, the Wolverines will have to turn their full, undivided attention to four-star Jyaire Hill if they want a quality corner in the 2023 class. They also offered four-star Ohio State commit Jermaine Mathews on Friday, but that is a very unlikely option at this point unless proven otherwise.
Expect Clinkscale and the Wolverines to evaluate and send out offers to other prospects in the 2023 class. If they don’t strike gold late in the cycle, they will likely have to go at the position hard in the 2024 class.
