Happy Signing Day, folks!

If you’re reading this early in the morning Wednesday, you can get a schedule of the expected announcement times of the prospects remaining on Georgia’s board by scrolling to the next section in this post. You can also just stay glued to DawgNation. Do that by clicking right here or on the DawgNation Facebook page.

Since everything moves so quick on Signing Day that anything I say in this post could be out of date in the hour or so after it publishes, I’m not going to say much at all. Instead, I’ll let the members of#RareBreed18 do the talking.

Below I’ve provide some of the best highlight packages from Georgia’s recruiting class of 2018. (Click on each player’s name for their Hudl profile and more videos.) And, might I say, there are some damn good highlights in this bunch. What else would you expect from one of the top classes in the country and arguably the best in UGA history?

Let’s go.
