UGA Football Recruiting Update – November 13, 2016


UGA football recruiting update as of November 13, 2016.


The Bulldogs’ future at the quarterback position is looking pretty bright. With Jacob Eason’s era underway, Jake Fromm is leading the charge for the nation’s No. 4 recruiting class, but Georgia is eyeing another big arm down the road.

Five-star prospect Trevor Lawrence, the No. 1 quarterback and No. 1 overall player in the 2018 recruiting class, was in Athens this past weekend for the Bulldogs’ 13-7 upset win over Auburn.

They’ll have to fight off Clemson, though. Dabo Swinney’s Tigers are the biggest threat to land Lawrence.

UGA also had 5-star recruit Walker Little, the No. 2 offensive tackle and No. 16 overall player, on campus this past weekend.

The 6-foot-8, 305-pound offensive lineman likes the program in Athens, but it seems as though he’s headed for either Stanford or his home-state Texas Longhorns.
