Sports Illustrated recently updated its SI99 recruit rankings for the 2021 postseason and the list bodes well for Georgia football.
Eight of Georgia's 20 signees appear on the postseason SI99. Only Alabama and Ohio State have more recruits with 11 each. Clemson also has eight recruits.
Georgia's top prospect is offensive tackle Amarius Mims, ranked No. 13 in the SI99. The Bleckley County native is close to a finished product at tackle with his impressive size and athleticism. He'll need a year of development before he's truly ready for SEC play, but at first glance, Mims clearly has what it takes to succeed in the SEC.
Quarterback Brock Vandagriff is a few spots behind Mims at No. 23. While JT Daniels may be Georgia's present at quarterback, Vandagriff looks like its future. He's a highly accurate passer capable of making any kind of throw. The Athens-area local is also a fantastic athlete that will make plenty of plays with his legs at Georgia.
Other Georgia football signees on the postseason SI99 include:
Georgia can still add to its total with several recruits in the SI99 still undecided. The most notable recruit for the Bulldogs is safety Terrion Arnold, the No. 44-ranked player in the postseason SI99.
Arnold recently narrowed his recruitment down to three schools: Georgia, Alabama and Florida. The Gators have long been considered the favorites to sign Arnold, however, Arnold is close to Georgia signee Xavian Sorey and the two have been considered a package deal.
Arnold has the instincts and polish needed to excel on Georgia's defense. He's the read-and-react safety Georgia has become known for in the head coach Kirby Smart era.
Georgia doesn't have to wait much longer for Arnold's decision. The Tallahassee native is announcing his commitment on Feb. 3, just in time for the final signing period.
