Quick hit: A longtime Georgia commit, defensive line coach Rodney Garner used familial ties (he played with Russell's uncle at Auburn in the 1980s) to flip the four-star prospect and give him yet another big body to work into the Tigers' already-stout defensive line rotation.
Malzahn says: "He's got family that was Auburn. He is a very big athletic guy, high character guy. We're very excited about him."
