Georgia football has the No.1 2022 recruiting class after landing three pledges during the bye week, and they are far from done.

Currently, 247Sports has the Dawgs at 21 commits, including two 5-stars, 12 4-stars, and seven 3-stars. They average a 92.49 ranking and currently have 292.70 points.

Georgia could finish with anywhere from 28 to possibly 31 commitments depending on how things pan out with seniors and such, but it’s likely closer to 28 guys. There are a few names that could enter the transfer portal that will be appealing, so that could be where Georgia uses the remainder of available scholarships.

The Dawgs are still looking for secondary players, defensive players, potentially a few more wideouts, and possibly another offensive lineman.

There are under 50 days until Dec.15, which is early signing day, and the Dawgs only have two home games remaining — Missouri and Charleston Southern.

So even though those two aren’t going to be ranked opponent games, they could still likely end up being big recruiting weekends for Georgia.

If the Dawgs remain undefeated and continue to beat teams with a purpose, they will have to start turning prospects away in this 2022 class — talk about a good problem to have.

Since Mykel Williams flipped and Bear Alexander re-committed, there has been a buzz surrounding the Dawgs, and there have been a couple of players decommitting from other schools.

With it being Florida week, it’s only fitting to mention that 4-star linebacker Shemar James and 4-star cornerback Julian Humphrey both backed away from their pledges to the Gators.

Since they decommitted, both have begun to trend toward Georiga, and it’s a pretty confident prediction to say they will end up signing with the Dawgs.

These were two of the Gators’ best commitments for the 2022 class, so it’s a big blow for them to lose two talented defensive players.

If these two guys sign with Georgia, it would give the Dawgs an even larger lead over No.2 Alabama.

However, those two names aren’t even the biggest Georgia could land. When we say how can the Dawgs finish with the No.1 class, it’s by signing a handful of 5-stars and a  few more 4-stars.

There are roughly seven to 10 spots up for grabs, give or take how the transfer portal situation goes and who decides to leave.

Here are some names that could help the Dawgs sign the best 2022 recruiting class. Of course, Humphrey and James are options, so keep them in mind as well.

Some 5-stars worth mentioning are Walter Nolen, but he could be a stretch since adding Bear back to the class. Shemar Stewart, a defensive end, likes the Dawgs too, but he is also eyeing the Aggies.

He is a name to keep an eye on, but Christen Miller, a 4-star kid from Cedar Grove, would likely commit before Stewart. Miller is the No.12 kid in Georgia and one that Tray Scott could develop.

Jaheim Singletary loves the Dawgs, and he could be another 5-star out of Florida that signs with Georgia. He is a 6-2 cornerback that ranks No. 18 in the country.

If Georgia signs Singletary, they would be adding depth to the secondary and another top-rated player who would compliment Kelee Ringo nicely.

Then there is Kamari Wilson, a 5-star safety from IMG Academy who is leaning heavily toward the Dawgs. Georgia’s emphasis in 2022 is signing a loaded secondary class after losing what they did in the last couple of years, and by adding these two, the Daws would achieve that goal.

Earnest Greene, a 4-star offensive lineman, could be another option for the Dawgs. 247Sports has him at warm, as he took an official visit on Sept.18.  Greene visited Texas most recently, so he could be an addition, but it’ll depend on who is available and if they fit the needs better.

These are eight names that would give the Dawgs another No.1 rated recruiting class by the end of early signing day.

Georgia continues to reload each year, which is already showing on the field. Now that Smart has his culture implemented, his staff knows what kind of kids to recruit to keep this team at the elite level they want.
