- SEC TEAM RANK: No. 6
- NATIONAL TEAM RANK: No. 8
- LAST YEAR’S FINISH: No. 6 (SEC); No. 11 (nation).
- NO. 1 CURRENT RECRUIT: DE Lorenzo Carter (No. 18 in nation).
- SDS ‘SLEEPER’ STAR: DB Shattle Fenteng is a good-sized cornerback who is already mature enough to handle a starting position, if needed. TE Jeb Blazevich is another gem, a great kid with a lot of potential.
- SUM THE DAY UP: It was an outstanding day, for one primary reason—Georgia as a state is a huge hotbed, and all of the other SEC powers lick their chops and try to steal talent away from the Bulldogs. On Wednesday, Georgia protected its borders and kept five-star DE Lorenzo Carter home. That is a huge statement for the program. Also, plucking speedy south Florida WR Isaiah McKenzie away from Florida and many others–nice.
- OVERALL: Nobody in the country can touch what the Bulldogs have coming in at running back in Sony Michel and Nick Chubb. Can you say Gurley-Marshall Jr.? That, plus the Carter news, is huge. It is always nice to have three five-star prospects. Along with that, needs have been addressed. This is another top 10 class, now all they have to do is coach them up.
