Recruiting visits are back for college football! For the first time since March 2020, the NCAA’s recruiting dead period is lifted.
The Georgia Bulldogs and Kirby Smart hold the top-ranked recruiting class for the class of 2022 and 2023. There is still a long way to go, but the Dawgs have a promising amount of talent lined up to visit in June.
