Georgia football: Top punter prospect Bill Rubright accepts preferred walk-on spot with the Bulldogs

Sanford Stadium

Signing Day may be nearly a month in the rearview mirror at this point, but there are still a select few division-one players lingering out there for teams to bring in. Many of these are specialists, and that’s exact who Georgia landed on Thursday night, as punter Bill Rubright committed to play as a preferred walk-on for Kirby Smart and the Bulldogs in 2017 and beyond:

Rubright is an in-state kid — he’s from the Atlanta area and played at Marist School — and according to 247Sports, he is the sixth-ranked punter in the country.

The Bulldogs ended 2017 with backup quarterback Brice Ramsey handling punting duties after an injury to starter Marhsall Long, so Rubright very well could have an opportunity to come in and see some early playing time.
