Georgia Football’s ability to recruit is lightyears better than the Gators

People lie. Even animals lie, but one thing that doesn’t lie is numbers.  If you look at recruiting numbers for Georgia compared to Florida, it’ll show the Dawgs are head and shoulders above the Gators.

According to 247Sports, from 2017-2020, Georgia has finished No. 3 in 2017, No. 1 in 2018, No.2 in 2019, No. 1 in 2020, and No. 4 in 2021. Florida had finished No.11, No.14, No. 9, No. 9, and No.12. While they aren’t bad finishes for recruiting, it does not show Florida closing the talent gap.

Florida is basically doing what Kentucky is doing now — not competing for the SEC East title every year but every few years. They’ll have players stick around until they are seniors and then hope that team makes a run.

Last year was that kind of run for Florida. So considering the Gators went 8-4 with what has been their best team over the previous five years, it shows something isn’t adding up for them.

I have always been told the NFL is x’s and o’s and college is Jimmy’s and Joe’s. This match-up in Jacksonville on October 30th, Georgia, will have both.

Thanks to the culture change Smart implemented, Georgia will have better coaching and players. This year has been a special one through seven games, so be ready to celebrate a Bulldogs victory next weekend at the World’s Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party, and you can expect to start that celebration early.
