Georgia football picked up a commitment on Friday afternoon when punter Drew Miller committed to the Bulldogs.

Miller becomes the 13th commitment in the class and the first specialist to join the fold. Miller is from Mediapolis, IA and held offers from Texas, Iowa State and NC State. Miller is listed at 6-foot-2 and 195 pounds

Georgia currently has Brett Thorson on the roster. While he will be entering his second season with the program, he will also be draft eligble following this season after he came over from Australia. Thorson was rarely used this past season, as he had just 36 punts for the national champions.

Georgia did have punter Jake Camarda drafted in the fourth round of the 2022 NFL Draft. Special teams has long been a top focus for Kirby Smart and Camarda was one of Smart’s favorite players.

Miller is the second commitment this week, as Georgia landed the No 1 player and quarterback in the class in Dylan Raiola. With 13 commitments, Georgia now has the No. 2 overall class in the 2024 recruiting cycle. The Bulldogs also have a number of top recruits on campus this weekend, no doubt looking to bolster the class.

Georgia signed kicker Peyton Woodring, the No. 1 ranked kicker per Kohl’s, in the 2023 signing class.

“I’m pretty close with Peyton and also Will Snellings,” Miller told DawgNation’s Jeff Sentell. “We’ve practiced live a lot together at camps. We all go to the same trainer. Will snaps. I hold. Peyton kicks. There’s a lot of fun in doing that. I enjoy being around them but also a great program. The back-to-back national champions.

“They just sent [Jake] Camarda to the NFL so they have a history of developing specialists. Also [former Georgia kicker Jack] Podlesny, too. In the past. Just an overall great program.”
