Georgia Adds To Historic Recruiting Class By Landing Top Ranked Linebacker

Georgia’s 2024 recruiting class received yet another enormous boost as they secured the commitment of five-star linebacker Justin Williams, further solidifying their dominance in the recruiting rankings.

Williams chose the Bulldogs over Oregon after receiving an offer from Georgia in late March and making both unofficial and official visits to the campus in May and June, respectively.

Hailing from Conroe, Texas, Justin Williams is a highly sought-after prospect, currently ranked as the No. 16 overall recruit in the 2024 cycle and the second-best linebacker (#1 OLB) in his class.

With his commitment, Williams becomes the third five-star prospect to join Georgia’s already impressive roster of recruits for the 2024 season.

Quarterback Dylan Raiola and cornerback Ellis Robinson lV, both five-star talents, were already committed to the Bulldogs, making the team’s recruiting class all the more juicy.

Georgia has been highly successful in attracting top talent, particularly in the 2024 class. With Williams’ commitment, they now boast 10 top-100 commits, further solidifying their status as a major powerhouse that doesn’t look to be slowing down anytime soon.

The team’s 2024 class includes other notable four-star recruits such as athlete Demarcus Reddick, tight end Jaden Reddell, defensive lineman Joseph Jonah-Ajonye, and wide receiver NiTareon Tuggle.

Gabe Brooks, the National Scouting Analyst at 247Sports, praised Williams in his scouting report, saying: “He’s a turbo-charged off-ball linebacker with exceptional physical traits and athleticism. His pursuit range is limitless, and he plays with an explosive speed that’s difficult for opponents to evade. Williams possesses the potential to become a high-impact player at the college level.”

The Bulldogs relentless pursuit of top-tier talent has put them in contention for the top-ranked recruiting class of all-time.

While they currently hold a significant lead over Ohio State for the 2024 top spot, surpassing the impressive 333-point recruiting score set by Texas A&M in 2022 remains a challenging task.

To achieve this feat, Georgia is still in the running for three more five-star prospects: Aydin Breland, KJ Bolden, and Brandon Baker.

Even if they manage to secure all three, they will need support from other highly-ranked four-star prospects to dethrone the Aggies from the top spot of all-time.

With such outstanding talent in Athens, and a relatively easy 2023 schedule ahead of them, one of the main obstacles for the Bulldogs will be maintaining their trademark hunger and relentlessness.

It certainly helps that they have the determined Smart to keep everyone as focused and motivated as can be.

Will Georgia win their THIRD straight national championship this season?
