Georgia football is in the running for the top recruit in the country.
2022 five-star defensive lineman Walter Nolan has named the Bulldogs among his final three schools, which include Georgia, Tennessee and Texas A&M.

Nolan (6-foot-4, 325 pounds) out of Powell High School in Powell, Tenn., is rated as the No. 1 player in the state of Tennessee, the No. 1 defensive lineman in the country and the top overall recruit in the 2022 recruiting class, per 247Sports Composite.
The Bulldogs have been recruiting the Under Armor All-American hard, and even more rigorously after losing five-star defensive tackle commit Bear Alexander, who still has Georgia in the running but is currently projected to sign with Texas A&M.
That said, Nolan made sure to let everyone know that his recruitment is still completely open via his Twitter account shortly after he announced his final schools.
My recruitment is still wide open for those who don’t know
