The Georgia Bulldogs picked up a big-time win on the recruiting trail, as the Bulldogs landed a commitment from 5-star athlete Malaki Starks.
Starks rates as the No. 29 overall player in the 2022 class and the No. 4 player in the state. If you still need more convincing of how talented Starks is, the other two hats on the table were that of Alabama and Clemson. This was a big-boy win for the Bulldogs in the 2022 recruiting cycle.
Starks may not be the last big addition of the week for Georgia when it comes to the 2022 recruiting class as 4-star linebacker Jalon Walker is set to announce his commitment on Sunday. Walker is the No. 50 overall player in the 2022 recruiting cycle. The Salisbury, N.C. native has a final three of Georgia, Clemson and North Carolina.
Landing Starks is already a massive win for Georgia on its own. He’s now on the very short list of best safety prospects to pick the Bulldogs, joining Richard LeCounte and Lewis Cine. The Bulldogs have had some pretty good defensive backs under Smart, who was a safety himself.
Beyond Starks’s talents and commitments though, the part that will get Georgia fans and coaches most excited is what Starks had to say when asked what kind of player is Georgia getting?
“We’re gonna win the natty,” Starks said. “With all the tools we’ve got coming in, especially in my class and the work ethic they have and the leadership to the team, I definitely believe we can win the natty.”
