Tyre West is a starting defensive end for Tift County High School in Tifton. The 6-foot-3, 270-pound junior is the No. 8 prospect in the 2022 class and No. 1 overall player in the state in that class, according to the 247Sports Composite.

West said his recruiting process was “crazy” and that he was getting offers from everywhere, including Alabama, Florida, LSU, Tennessee and Oregon. Like many top athletes, it came down to where West felt most at home and ultimately that was with head coach Kirby Smart and the Georgia Bulldogs.
