Kirby Continues Recruiting Roll

ATHENS - Kirby Smart hasn’t lost a football game yet, but he has lost a recruiting battle - just not this season.

Archbishop Wood (PA) WR Mark Webb, considered the No. 48 WR in the country picked the Bulldogs over a host of schools, including Alabama and Penn State. At 6’2”, 204, Webb is considered the top WR in Pennsylvania, meaning the Bulldogs have now secured the top WR and top RB (D’Andre Swift) in the Keystone State. 

The commitment puts the Bulldogs at 16 commitments for the class of 2017. It also puts them at No. 4 nationally, and in striking distance of a top-two-ranked class for the first time in school history. The Bulldogs now trail only Ohio State, Alabama and Oklahoma, but have fewer committed players than all three, which means they have the ability to jump them in the rankings. 

Also notable is that UGA’s 2017 class is now 81% filled with Scout 300 players, and that’s a record all time at UGA. Only three players, Webb, WR Matt Landers and DL Devante Wyatt are not considered top 300 players nationally at this time. That’s the highest percentage of Scout 300 per class in UGA history, and is better than anyone nationally outside of the Buckeyes.
