Walter Nolen: Nation’s No. 1 DT for 2022 places UGA in his top 5
Want to attack every day with the latest Georgia football recruiting info? That’s what the Intel brings. This entry is about the latest from 5-star DT Walter Nolen
There are times covering Georgia football recruiting where the top school list drop is more of normalcy. The Bulldogs are at a place nationally where any recruit they put the full-court press on almost always merits inclusion into a top school list.
That’s based on resources, tradition and where the Bulldogs sit at the table of college football’s elite programs.
To say nothing about the sustained excellence in the way UGA goes about wooing the nation’s top prospects in any given cycle. There is a literal recruiter all-star team sitting in those fancier and newer coach’s offices in Athens these days.
And yet there is an exception made here for 5-star DT Walter Nolen.
Nolen dropped his top schools on Friday afternoon. Georgia made the cut. As expected. Especially after two very positive visits during the open month in June.
Perhaps the better angle here is a recognition of the others in the chase for the nation’s No. 1 DT and the No. 3 overall prospect for 2022 on the 247Sports Composite scale.
Alabama. Florida. Georgia. Michigan. Tennessee. Those are the clear contenders in the chase for Walter Nolen.
