The Georgia State Panthers might have just landed its jewel of the 2018 class in three star defensive tackle Will Choloh from Lawrenceville, Georgia. After receiving seven offers since the beginning of May, Choloh committed to the Panthers on Saturday over Appalachian State, Kansas State, and Colorado State.
Choloh’s commitment comes on the heels of four Georgia State commitments in one day last week, one of which was a South Carolina transfer. Choloh is the Panthers first ranked commit and moves Georgia State up one spot to sixth in the Sun Belt ahead of Louisiana-Monroe.
Choloh, at 6’1 270 lbs, is a strong run-stopper with a powerful lower body. He has plus agility and quickness playing as the defensive end in his team’s 3-4 defense. That edge experience will give him an upper hand against interior lineman when he moves inside for Georgia State. Choloh will have a chance to play early when he arrives with the graduation of Julien Laurent and Mackendy Cheridor following the upcoming season.
Choloh has received considerable interest from Duke but has not yet received an offer. He went to Duke’s camp in early June and came away impressed, according to 247sports. With teammate Taiyon Palmer committed to Duke, the Blue Devils could pose as Georgia State’s biggest threat.
