Even before the College Football Playoff, Georgia laid the foundation for a return trip with Wednesday’s early signing day.
The Bulldogs secured commitments from three players ranked the best in the nation at their position, including No. 1 dual-threat quarterback Justin Fields. Fields is also ranked as the No. 2 player in the nation. Fields is in line to be Georgia’s backup quarterback next season with Jacob Eason deciding to transfer after being surpassed on the depth chart by true freshman Jake Fromm.
This will be Kirby Smart’s third recruiting class at Georgia, and his first as the reigning SEC champion. It’s shaping up to be a great one.
