Georgia Secures The Nation’s No. 1 Recruiting Class


With a late surge on National Signing Day, the Georgia Bulldogs wrestled away the nation’s top recruiting class trophy  from perennial title holder Alabama.

Kirby Smart and the Dawgs secured a class for the ages while passing Ohio State and taking the top spot in the 2018 recruiting race. It was the first time since 2010 the Crimson Tide didn’t finish with the No. 1 class.

American Heritage (Fort Lauderdale) five-star cornerback Tyson Campbell started the surge when he announced his intentions to sign with Georgia this morning.

The Bulldogs then flipped the nation’s No. 2 outside linebacker Quay Walker, out of Crisp County (Georgia), from Alabama and four-star Lee County (Georgia) linebacker Otis Reese from Michigan.

In addition, three-star defensive tackle Tramel Walthour, a UGA commit out of Liberty County  in Hinesville, GA made it official today.

UGA commit Jordan Davis, a 6’6”, 330-pound three-star defensive tackle from Charlotte, North Carolina, also signed with the Dawgs this morning.

To top the NSD festivities for the Dawgs, Tommy Bush, a four-star freak of an athlete at wide receiver out of Schertz, Texas, chose the Bulldogs over Baylor, Texas, Ole Miss and Michigan State.

Overall, Georgia signed eight of the nation’s top 31 high school recruits. The class sports an unprecedented seven five-star recruits and fifteen four-star athletes.

Ohio State finished second in the recruiting battle, followed by Texas, Penn State and Miami.

Georgia running backs coach Dell McGee was named the nation’s top recruiter by 247Sports and offensive line coach Sam Pittman was fourth in the rankings.
