Alternate helmets? Georgia recruit teases potential new uniform design
Alternate uniforms at Georgia is one of the main topics that splinter the fan base. But a recruit has unveiled new helmets that may see their way to Sanford Stadium this season.
Antione Jackson, a 2024 commit, showed off the new helmets during a recruiting trip to Athens, and now they’re making their way around social media. The white helmets showcase an all-white uniform combination with the trademark “G” across the side. The new helmet includes a red stripe and a black stripe over the top from the base of the lid to the facemask.
Although the fan base is somewhat divided away from the traditional red helmets and silver britches, the alternate uniforms have been popular with recruits and younger fans in recent years.
Georgia 2 years ago in the Peach Bowl against Cincinnati wore alternate uniforms, and black uniforms have surfaced at times. About a month ago, Georgia announced that the uniforms this season would feature block numbers.

Georgia 2 years ago wore black jerseys against Mississippi State, but only previously did it against Louisiana-Lafayette in 2016, coach Kirby Smart’s first season.
Before that, Georgia debuted black jerseys in surprise fashion against Auburn in 2007, which was a 45-20 win at Sanford Stadium. The Bulldogs wore the black jerseys again for Hawaii in the Jan. 1, 2008 Sugar Bowl, a 41-10 victory. The black jerseys fell somewhat out of favor after Georgia wore the black jerseys and lost to Alabama in 2008, 41-30.
