Georgia and Kirby Smart will look to sign another elite recruiting class.

The Early Signing Period is officially here, as it is the first day that 2021 recruiting prospects can sign with respective schools. Below you can find information on the Georgia football 2021 recruiting class with regards to signees, commitments and live updates throughout the day.

As of 4 P.M., the Bulldogs 20 signees have turned in their papers and officially sign with the Georgia class. Georgia did not land 5-star defensive tackle Maason Smith, as he ended up signing with LSU.

DawgNation will have live broadcasts and coverage throughout the day, with the first update coming at 10 a.m. on the DawgNation Facebook, Youtube and Twitter pages.

Early Signing Day Georgia football recruiting live updates

6:00 p.m.: this will probably be the final update from here today. Georgia currently has the No. 3 recruiting class in the country. Should Georgia land Terrion Arnold in February, that should help them stay ahead of LSU for the No. 3 spot.

Georgia gained a prospect in Xavian Sorey Jr. and lost one today in De’Jahn Warren flipping to Jackson State. With Sorey, Georgia had 20 commitments on the day. All 20 of those players have signed. Of those 20, 16 will enroll early.

The Bulldogs landed 7 of the top 11 players in the state of Georgia, including three of the four 5-star prospects. The Bulldogs had to adjust without the ability to host recruits and it’s clear they did a great job of that.

Defensive back might still be the biggest position of concern depending on what Eric Stokes and Tyson Campbell decide to do. The same could be said at running back after Donovan Edwards picked Michigan. Should either Zamir White or James Cook come back, that miss stings a little less.

Georgia got more athletic at linebacker with Smael Mondon and Sorey. Don’t know if they’ll be ready to play day one but this Georgia defense still has a ton of playmakers.

A small offensive class than last year but you have your quarterback of the future in Brock Vandagriff, a couple of studs on the offensive line and a really talented tight end in Brock Bowers.

Elsehwere in the SEC, Alabama looks like they might finish with the No. 1 class, but Georgia will still have a higher-rated class than the likes of Florida and Tennessee. The Gators have the No. 8 class, while Tennessee sits at No. 15. If Georgia can beat out Florida for Arnold in February that helps a lot too.

Kirby Smart did touch on this at the beginning of his press conference but it’s a real bummer about the Vanderbilt game getting cancelled. This senior class had just three home guys this season. That’s 2020 in a nutshell for ya.

5:00 P.M.: Georgia coach Kirby Smart gave an interesting quote on quarterback Brock Vandagriff and what he brings to the program.

“When they start talking about where I want to go, I want to go win a championship.” Smart said. “At least that’s what the best quarterbacks want to do. And Brock, he never shied away from that. He wanted an opportunity to play close to home. He wanted an opportunity to play near his family. His Dad is a coach right here near town. His mom is a teacher. He’s got a sister who is a really good athlete. He wants to be able to play in front of them. I’m excited for what he can do. He’s been a leader for his program. He’s still in the playoffs. He’s been productive. We’re excited to see what he can bring to the University of Georgia.”

4:30 P.M.: DawgNation’s Jeff Sentell is chatting with a number of Georgia signees, including Chaz Chambliss, David Daniel and host of others. You can watch below in the Youtube video.

Georgia also learned that 5-star defensive tackle Maason Smith would indeed be signing with LSU. The Bulldogs recruited him hard but were unable to pull him out of the state of Louisiana.

That leaves Georgia with 20 signees on the day, and bumps them down to the No. 4 overall class in the country behind Alabama, Ohio State and LSU.

3:55 p.m.: Moments before Georgia coach Kirby Smart is set to speak, the Bulldogs get the last two Letters of Intent in from previously committed prospects as both 5-star prospects Smael Mondon and Amarius Mims are now Bulldogs.

Mims committed to Georgia back in October. He is the No. 1 overall player in the state of Georgia and the No. 7 player overall. He picked Georgia over Alabama and Tennessee.

Mondon committed in November. He is the No. 3 player in the state and the No. 29 overall player in the recruiting class. He is set to play at inside linebacker.
