Jan. 10 update: Maiava has flipped his commitment to the USC Trojans.

Maiava will be the fourth scholarship quarterback on Georgia’s roster. The former three-star recruit helped UNLV go 8-5 in 2023. The 6-foot-4, 220-pound quarterback passed for 3,085 yards, 17 touchdowns, and 10 interceptions last season. Maiava also added 277 rushing yards and three rushing touchdowns.
