Georgia’s coaching staff entered the 2023 recruiting cycle knowing there would be plenty of roster turnover when they arrived in Athens. Head coach Kirby Smart And his assistants set to work producing another high-profile signing class, which looks set to help the Bulldogs reload.
While February’s National Signing Day was quiet for the Bulldogs, they still ranked No. 2 in the nation by 247Sports. Georgia’s signing class is reloaded as the Bulldogs have now officially signed 5 five-stars and 17 four-stars.
“Every year I’m excited to get a new signing class, but this team was special,” Smart said in December. “Every time we visit or come in, they see us and they meet with the academics and they meet with the player development and they meet with the strength and conditioning and the training department, everybody talks about what a great group of kids it is.
What we’ve found over seven or eight years is that the highest earners in terms of academic success can be GPA, which is the number one indicator of success. Can they be successful in the classroom? This is as good a team as we have.”
Coming out of the early signing period, Georgia only had a pair of unsigned commitments: four-star wide receiver; Raymond Cottrell and offensive lineman Jamal Mirwazer. Meriweather has yet to officially sign but is still expected to be a Bulldog, while Cottrell has flipped his commitment to Texas A&M.
Even after the 2022 postseason loss, Georgia’s roster was in good shape in terms of depth, but there were several positions the Bulldogs successfully boosted with their additions from the high school. Let’s dive into which positions the Bulldogs are in for potential threats heading into 2023.
