Of the top ten players in Georgia for the class of 2017, three players are already committed to programs other than Georgia. That the Bulldogs just took the No. 2 overall QB in the country last year means it will be more complicated convincing other signal callers to come play in Silver Britches. As it stands right now two quarterbacks are in the top ten in Georgia. It stands to reason that Georgia won’t sign both - and it might not sign either.
Another note - right now Georgia isn’t as loaded with higher-level prospects as it was in 2016. The top six players in the state last year were ranked within the top 50 players nationally last year. This season only two player, DeAngelo Gibbs and UGA commit Richard LeCounte, are ranked in the top 50 nationally.
Its clear, understanding these metrics, that Kirby Smart and company are going to have to leave the Peach State in 2017.
