As the Georgia Bulldogs prepare to face TCU in the College Football Playoff National Championship Game on Monday night, there are lots of stories buzzing around.

Former 2020 Georgia target Jordan Burch, a five-star defensive lineman from South Carolina, has decided to enter the transfer portal. Burch was a recruiting focus in Georgia’s 2020 class but ultimately chose to stay home and play for the Gamecocks.

Now the Dawgs have a possible second shot at Burch and a way to quickly bolster the defensive line in 2023.

Burch hasn’t quite achieved a lot of the promise he showed in high school, but his talent is undeniable. Early projections have him looking at Georgia and Oregon, where the coach who recruited him originally at UGA (Dan Lanning) is now head coach.
