Elite recruits visiting Georgia football for big recruiting weekend

The Georgia Bulldogs and head coach Kirby Smart are hosting a number of elite recruits for the weekend of Saturday, Jan. 13, 2024. The Bulldogs have signed 28 recruits in the class of 2024. The Dawgs will finish the 2024 recruiting cycle as the No. 1 recruiting team in college football. Georgia could still add a player in the class of 2024, but for the most part, Georgia’s focus is now of the class of 2025.

Georgia has some work to do in the 2025 recruiting class. The Bulldogs have a solid foundation with six commitments in the class of 2025. Georgia will likely look to add another 20 commitments or so before early signing day in December. Georgia currently has the No. 7 recruiting class in the 2025 cycle in the country, which is not up to Georgia’s recent lofty standard.
