Class of 2015 defensive Chauncey Rivers of Stone Mountain, Ga., announced Saturday that he had flipped his commitment from USC to Georgia.

“I have officially flipped and became a Dawg,” Rivers put on his Twitter account. Rivers tweeted out his change of heart after taking an unofficial visit to Georgia Saturday. He had committed to USC last July.

Earlier this month Rivers said he would take in some junior days at other schools but he called his commitment to USC a strong one. He also has offers from Clemson, Auburn, Florida, Kentucky, Vanderbilt, Missouri, Tennessee and Georgia Tech.

Rivers last visited USC for the Clemson game.

His Stephenson teammate Dexter Neal, a wide receiver, is still committed to the Gamecocks.
