7 things to know about UGA’s recruiting class

When it comes to college football recruiting, Georgia is the best in the nation for 2018.

According to 247Sports, the Bulldogs edged Ohio State and Texas at the top of the 2018 football recruiting composite team rankings.  

After finishing the early signing period in December with nation’s top-rated class, UGA welcomed three elite defensive prospects to the fold Wednesday to secure the No. 1 spot overall.
