Rankin is a 6-foot-1, 230-pound linebacker who was rated as the No. 6 LB in Florida and the No. 56 player overall. He is described as an exceptional tackler with a nose for the football and had taken visits to NC State, Penn State and Tennessee among others. He selected the Bulldogs after receiving at least a dozen offers from the likes of Louisville, Cincinnati, NC State and Kansas.
