3-star QB Jackson Muschamp will follow in his father's footsteps by walking on at UGA.

Jackson Muschamp has committed to be a preferred walk-on QB for the 2020 class at Georgia.

The Georgia legacy is the son of South Carolina coach Will Muschamp.  The 3-star QB from Hammond School (Columbia, SC) had been previously committed to Colorado State.

Now, he’s going to be a Bulldog. Just like his father was years ago in Athens. The news of his decision was first reported by Rusty Mansell of 247Sports.

The 6-foot-1, 190-pound senior ranks as the nation’s No. 97 pro-style QB and the No. 2722 overall prospect for the 2020 cycle on the 247Sports Composite rankings.

Muschamp will add even more depth to a quarterback room at UGA that saw junior Jake Fromm depart to the NFL. He’ll be the fourth new face at QB on the roster this fall. He joins Wake Forest graduate senior transfer Jamie Newman, 4-star true freshman early enrollee Carson Beck and Nevada preferred walk-on transfer Austin Kirksey as new Bulldog signal callers for the 2020 season.

Georgia will also hope for the best health outlook going forward for redshirt freshman QB D’Wan Mathis. Mathis missed his true freshman season after major brain surgery after his first spring practice in Athens.

Redshirt sophomore Stetson Bennett IV will also be back for his second season in Athens. He spent the 2017 season as a redshirt scout teamer under center, then transferred to a junior college in Mississippi for the 2018 season.

Bennett returned to Athens last fall as a scholarship quarterback for the Bulldogs.

Will Muschamp was a productive safety from 1991-1994 in Athens. He is now well-known as the former coach at Florida and now the coach of a South Carolina team which stunned the Bulldogs in overtime last fall in Sanford Stadium.

That said, he enrolled in Athens as a walk-on to the football team, too. Muschamp then earned a full scholarship and a major playing role during his time at UGA.
