All of Georgia’s Five-Star Recruits Committed to Georgia


Kirby Smart is recruiting like a madman in his first full cycle.

That much is obvious, but if you needed any more proof, check out this statistic from ESPN Stats & Info:

The tendency for the state of Georgia’s best players to play their college football elsewhere has long irked UGA fans, but this year Smart & Co. have convinced more than half of the local ESPN 300 crop to don a Georgia Bulldogs hat.

Perhaps most impressive is that all three five-star recruits in the state, DeAngelo Gibbs, Richard LeCounte and Robert Beal, Committed to the G. Not only that, the Dawgs landed another five-star in New York’s Isaiah Wilson.

Florida, Florida State and Miami each nabbed seven in-state ESPN 300 prospects, as did Michigan, meaning the four-way tie for second was not even close.
