The Georgia Bulldogs had the No. 7 recruiting class in the 2016 recruiting cycle. Here are five true freshmen that could have a huge impact in 2016 for UGA.
The Georgia Bulldogs are coming off back-to-back 10 win seasons on the gridiron. Despite losing former head coach Mark Richt mid-recruiting cycle, the Georgia Bulldogs rallied to achieve another top 10 class under new head coach Kirby Smart. UGA finished with the No. 7 class in the country in 2016.
Part of why the Dawgs had such a recruiting class was that three of its 20 commitments this spring were five-star players coming out of high school. The Georgia Bulldogs have six of its 20 commitments already enrolled at the University for Spring Semester 2016, including four participants in the US Army All-America Bowl in San Antonio, Texas.
With a new coaching staff in place and a UGA football program looking to go from good to great under new head coach Kirby Smart, there will be plenty of competition in spring and summer practices leading up to the 2016 NCAA campaign, Smart’s first Between the Hedges since he was running backs coach at UGA in 2005 for Mark Richt.
Though the Georgia Bulldogs do lose several key players to the 2016 NFL Draft including Malcolm Mitchell, Leonard Floyd, Jordan Jenkins, and John Theus, UGA does have some great freshmen on the 2016 team that could hopefully offset any potentially perceived losses on the Dawgs. Here are five true freshmen that could have a huge impact for the 2016 Georgia Bulldogs.
