Georgia college football teams searched for new talent for next year’s class.
It was the Dawgs that got the lion’s share of the best recruits.
It was a closely watched National Signing Day, a huge annual event in college football where student-athletes nationwide pledge allegiance to a school and respective football program of their choice.
And enough elite prospects picked the Georgia Bulldogs to make it the top team among all other college teams.
According to On3, a top college football news site, the Bulldogs rank number one in their new Industry Team Recruiting Rankings with 3 5-star signings, the best of the best, 19 4-stars, and 6 3-stars among the 28 that announced commitments to UGA. The Dawgs placed ahead of Alabama, Ohio State, Miami, and Texas in the rankings.
Among other Georgia-based school football programs on the list, Georgia Tech placed 36th with 24 confirmed signings. Georgia Southern comes in at #95 with 20 signings, and Georgia State landed at #127 with 10 total signings. None of those three schools had any 5-star signups.
The most highly anticipated signing for the Bulldogs is KJ Bolden, a safety that UGA wooed away from Florida State University. Bolden is a 5-star plus recruit that along with other 5-star new Dawgs, cornerback Ellis Robinson IIV and LB Justin Williams, brings renewed hope of another championship for UGA Football.
The successful day helped to soften the blow of losing another prospect, quarterback Dylan Raiola, to Nebraska. The Buford High School alum could have given UGA 4 5 stars had he stayed with the Bulldogs. The Dawgs signed another QB today among its 2024 class, Ryan Puglisi from Connecticut.
