When 5-star tight end Isaac Nauta decided to decommit from Florida State, he dealt the Seminoles a major blow. But he will drastically improve Georgia's 2016 recruiting class, as he ultimately decided to commit to the Bulldogs.

According to Jeff Sentell of Dawg Nation, Nauta officially committed to Georgia on Saturday and "has already applied for admission at UGA and will enroll early on Jan. 11."

The 6'3" and 244-pound tight end from IMG Academy is the No. 1-ranked tight end, the third-best prospect from the state of Georgia and the No. 9 overall prospect in the 2016 class, according to 247Sports' composite rankings.

Nauta's size and athleticism make him an exciting prospect. He'll high-point the ball in the air, and he has soft hands for a man his size, but he's also physical in the running game and attacks his blocking assignment.

It's a huge boon to Georgia's already-impressive recruiting class for 2016, with Radi Nabulsi of UGASports.com noting his commitment gives the Bulldogs the top tight end and top-ranked pro-style quarterback in Jacob Eason. 

Nauta looks as though he'll be a very versatile tight end who can stay on the field in all situations. 

He looks like a special prospect at the tight end position and is the sort of talent an offensive coordinator can utilize in a number of ways. 

Georgia's 2016 recruiting class before he committed was ranked 11th overall by 247Sports. New head coach Kirby Smart is making a profound impact on the program already. 

Florida State's loss, then, certainly is Georgia's massive gain.
