Bulldogs get a huge recruiting boost entering bowl season.
Georgia has received a commitment from top senior recruit Isaiah Wilson, an offensive tackle from Brooklyn, New York. Wilson is considered a top five recruit in almost all recruiting circles and is ranked number two on ESPN.com. All in all a great coup for Kirby Smart and the Bulldogs staff combined with Robert Beal and Richard Lecounte. All three are regarded as five star recruits and have the ability to provide immediate impact next season for Georgia.
Smart has succeeded in producing a top three 2017 recruiting class along with Alabama and Ohio State in his second season under the helm of the Georgia program. For years, Athens has consistently been a top destination for recruits. However, this influx of blue-chip talent could play a bigger role than usual for the team in 2017.
Three names in particular could see the field early and often next year.
Isaiah Wilson is a stud at 6’7 and 350 pounds. He has a college football body already, leading everyone to believe he can come in and grab a starting spot on the offensive line. Wilson’s size and pure talent is clear, so don’t be surprised if he’s lining up between the hedges next season.
Robert Beal and Richard Lecounte are also very intriguing. Beal at 6’4 and 230 has the tools and athleticism to see the field at the defensive end spot. Lecounte, the homegrown Georgia product, is exciting bulldog fans. His speed and ball-skills gives him the ability to play both sides of the turf if needed. This advantage of lining up at multiple positions makes it so much more difficult for opposing coordinators to handle. These top three recruits for the Bulldogs are incredibly talented and already look the part size and skill-wise headed into next season.
In short, Georgia’s 2017 class headlined by Wilson, Beal, and Lecounte is lethal. With the gain from this top recruiting class, and the return of Nick Chubb and development of Jacob Eason, it looks as though the Bulldogs can compete for an SEC East title next year.
