Joenel Aguero — 5-star, 6-0, 195lbs, S

One of the biggest names on this list for the 2023 Georgia football recruiting class is 5-star safety Joenel Aguero.

The Dawgs have made it known that he is a top priority, and Aguero is another coming off a big-time visit that makes us feel like he could be someone that commits this summer.

According to 247Sports Composite rankings, Aguero is currently the No. 34 overall player, the No. 2 safety and the No. 2 player out of Massachusetts.

He is a big target for Will Muschamp and Fran Brown, but Muschamp is his primary recruiter. However, with Brown coming from that area, he knows a lot about Aguero, so he helps Muschamp make it happen.

Aguero is already 195-pounds but could hold over 200-pounds if needed.

There isn’t much to not like about this young man because he is the total package. He has a good head on his shoulders and is a stud on the football field. He is a force and reminds me a lot of Lewis Cine and his head hunting ability.

Aguero visited Athens for his official visit on June 10, and while he will still go to Florida this week, Miami later in the month, and Ohio State at the end of the football season, the Dawgs could seal the deal now instead of later.

While Aguero posted a lot from his Florida visit, it doesn’t mean he had more fun in Gainesville. He could get back to Athens before the season ends, and we all must remember this is a long ball kind of recruiting class — it’s about who you sign in December, not June.

He could be someone who commits to his school of choice but doesn’t make it public until Early Signing Day, but I could see him going public before the football season starts.

On his Twitter, he said he wants to go to a college that will develop him best — Georgia is among these schools that are getting officials. Look at what the Dawgs did with Cine and the rest of the defense. Georgia is the smart choice here, and Aguero is a wise player.

The Dawgs cannot miss out on this guy, he is someone that will thrive in Athens and is a perfect fit.
