Jadon Haselwood, the top-rated wide receiver in the 2019 college football recruiting class, announced Tuesday night he's decommitted from the Georgia Bulldogs.

Haselwood is a 5-star prospect and the No. 3 overall recruit in next year's incoming class, based on 247Sports' composite rankings. He confirmed his decision on Twitter:

Tom VanHaaren of ESPN.com reported the Miami Hurricanes and Oklahoma Sooners are among the programs expected to make a push for the dynamic playmaker after he reopened his recruitment.

Haselwood originally committed to the Bulldogs in March 2017, but he's continued to make visits and has remained in contact with coaching staffs at other schools.

In August, he told Jeff Sentell of DawgNation he was still talking with the Auburn Tigers and Florida State Seminoles, in addition to Georgia, Miami and Oklahoma.

"Those are just my backup plans," Haselwood said of the non-Georgia conversations. "I will say that. I still talk to those coaches at those schools. Those are the only ones I talk to. Just so I can keep my phone from blowing up."

The Cedar Grove High School (Georgia) standout also has experience at safety and already features an impressive frame at 6'2½'', 196 pounds. That size, combined with his ability to create separation, should allow him to make a smooth transition to college ball next season.

Now the question is which school will be lucky enough to land his final commitment.
