The early signing period begins on Wednesday, Dec. 15. Below you can find information on the 2022 commitments, signees, targets as well as live updates on the Georgia recruiting class.
Georgia at the moment has 23 signees, three unsigned commitments and the No. 3 overall class in the 2022 recruiting cycle. Georgia is battling Alabama and Texas A&M for the nation’s top recruiting class.

Two top Georgia targets, 4-star offensive lineman Earnest Green and 4-star defensive tackle Christen Miller are set to announce their decisions on Jan. 8.
Overall it was a good, but not great day. The Tyre West de-commitment was one of the worst kept secrets. He ended up at Tennessee. Securing a commitment and signature from Marvin Jones was massive, given the current state of edge rushers on Georgia’s team.
Missing on Kamari Wilson and Shemar James is going to sting. Florida is clearly going to be a factor on the recruiting trail under Billy Napier in a way it was not under Dan Mullen.

But don’t forget Georgia landed 4-star receiver Chandler Smith and 5-star cornerback Daylen Everette on Tuesday. Those are two big additions that arguably help Georgia more given its current needs.
The Everette win for Georgia was part of a tough day for Clemson. The Tigers saw three elite players de-commit in the wake of Brent Venables leaving for Oklahoma, and those players ended up at Georgia, Alabama and Michigan. Dabo Swinney also made some strange comments with regards to the transfer portal. Will be interested to see how the program adjusts to all the changes in the sport going forward.
Personally, I think the Travis Hunter situation is more of an outlier than a tectonic shift in the state of recruiting. The top-ranked signing classes as of this writing are Texas A&M, Alabama, Georgia, Ohio State and Texas. Those programs will continue to use it to attract the best players even as new money enters the sport.
Georgia defensive assistants all crushed their positional units. Tray Scott, Glenn Schumann and Jahmile Addae all improved their units on Wednesday and in the 2022 cycle. Will Muschamp proved to be invaluable for this group and his recruiting ability made a difference.
Todd Hartley once again signed his top target at his position in landing 4-star tight end Oscar Delp. A year after landing Brock Bowers, Hartley continues to crush it.
Dell McGee is money year in and year out. He landed a top-50 overall prospect in Branson Robinson and played a big part in Georgia getting 5-star defensive end Mykel Williams.
Think Cortez Hankton and Matt Luke were a little hamstrung in this class because they have so many young players already on the roster that need to develop. It’s hard to pitch early playing time given the state of the wide receiver and offensive line rooms.
