Gunner Stockton is Georgia's highest rated commitment at the moment.

Both 247Sports and Rivals provided major updates to their respective 2022 rankings. A number of Georgia commits and targets saw massive movement, as the recruiting services continue to get a better idea of how some of these players might play at the next level.

No Georgia commit got a bigger ratings bump than defensive tackle Bear Alexander. The Texas product shot up from the No. 148 spot all the way to now being the No. 86 overall player. And Alexander might not be done yet, as Rivals ranks him as the No. 4 overall prospect in the country.

Quarterback commit Gunner Stockton is now Georgia’s highest-rated commitment, as he moves up to being the No. 20 overall player after a stellar junior season. Since the last major rankings update to the 2022 class, Stockton flipped his commitment from South Carolina to Georgia.

Among Georgia’s top targets, several prospects saw triple-digit movement, with running back Branson Robinson and tight end Oscar Delp both moving way up to being the No. 102 and No. 76 overall players in the class.

Below you can find the overall ranking for all eight of Georgia’s commitments, as well as their position ranking and where they rank among their respective top players in the state.
