Rivals National Recruitment Analyst ryan wright Together jade may From UGASports.com, charles fishbein From TheOsceola.com And Russell Johnson From jacketonline.com Tackle three subjects and determine whether they believe each statement is FACT or FICTION.
1. Georgia State will sign five of its top 10 prospects in 2024.
Right’s take Novel: Afterwards Georgia Having signed only two of the top 10 in-state prospects in the 2023 class and four in the top 53, could the Bulldogs do better with the 2024 class? Yes, but signing five in the top 10 is a tall order.
If the current top 10 holds, Kameron Davis (Florida State) and Miles Graham (Florida) already committed and giving up only eight of the five chances Georgia needed to accomplish the feat. Earlier this month, Adric Houston said he wanted to go to Clemson, Tennessee, Alabama, lsu And Texas This spring. Georgia can expect a tough fight for Houston with Clemson and Alabama following heavily.
The Bulldogs are also in a battle for Mike Matthews with Tennessee and Alabama in the mix. Zion Ragins is another in-state prospect who could end up in Tennessee and elsewhere oklahoma Telling him that he is a priority. Another big unknown is Sammy Brown. Clemson, Georgia, Tennessee, Oklahoma and Notre Dame All are progressive. The ties to both Clemson and Oklahoma remain strong for Brown. The Bulldogs could win, but it also wouldn’t be surprising to see him sign out of state.
May take fact: Georgia already has commitments from NY Carr and Landon Thomas, two of the top 10 prospects in the state. Of the eight remaining pros, Georgia is at or near the top for Eddrick Houston, Mike Matthews, KJ Bolden, Sammy Brown, Cameron Davis and Daniel Calhoun. Signing just three of those six would give the Bulldogs half of the top 10. Looking down the line, names like DeMelo Jones and Justin Green could end up in the top 10 in the state as well. Signing half of the top 10 is a very realistic target kirby smart and company this year.
2. Georgia Tech will sign a top-30 2024 recruiting class.
Right’s take fact: With the changes happening in Atlanta, I want to get a positive jump on all of this, especially with the class hanging inside the top 30 right now. But there is a long way to go, and history is not on the Yellow Jackets’ side. last class georgia tech was in the top 30 in 2020 when the program finished No. 1. 25 in the Rivals.com team recruiting rankings.
Unlike competitors’ ranking formula, colorado At no.2023 the class was closed. 30 with 19 commits, one five-star and three four-star. Can the Yellow Jackets get the four to five four-stars needed for a top-30 ranking? Yes. Another potential hurdle – will they take an entire class of 20 or more? Only time will tell.
Right now, there’s a lot of momentum behind Brent’s And their staff who are promising on the way to recruitment.
Johnson’s take. fact: Georgia Tech is in the midst of a complete turnover, both in terms of recruiting strategy and results on the field. With Brent Key permanently running the show, things look very different around Atlanta. With the foundation of the class set with four-star QB Zachary Williams, and the talented backfield that is Georgia State, Key’s first full class should be able to hang right in the 30 range. To reach that number, it’s going to be important that they find a way to prioritize local targets like Justin Logan, BJ Gibson and Kylen Fox. They will also need to sign more in terms of volume than they have in recent years, as they haven’t signed more than 20 high school recruits since 2020.
3. Florida State will sign the top-five of its 2024 recruiting class.
Taking of the right Novel: The Seminoles are currently back in familiar territory, ranked fourth in the team rankings for the Class of 2024. The challenge for the coaching staff in Tallahassee is to keep it through National Signing Day. As recruiting has changed with NIL being a factor and Georgia, Alabama and Ohio State Picking out the elite prospects will be a difficult task. FSU could finish in the top 10 but miss out on a top five finish.
The in-state wish list for a top-five finish for FSU includes signing five-star Joshisa Trader, four-star cornerback Charles Lester and four-star safety Fred Gaskin. Lester and Gaskins are elite players, the Seminoles have a great landing shot.
Fishbean’s take. fact: The Seminoles already have a top-five class. They already have a top rated signal caller in Luke Kromenhoek. They also have Kam Davis committed who is one of the top rushers in the country. He is in the lead group for JoshisaTrader. FSU is also on a few other top prospects.
