Georgia Bulldogs news: 4-Star ATH commits to Dawgs, March heartbreak for Lady Bulldogs, more

A Georgia Bulldogs news roundup to cover the stories from the weekend, opening with some great recruiting news for the Dawgs. 

The stacked 2024 Georgia recruiting class keeps getting better. Demello Jones, a 4-star athlete out of Swainsboro, Ga, has committed to play for the Bulldogs. Jones is a versatile, multi-sport player who has taken snaps at wide receiver, cornerback, and quarterback in high school. “UGA is building great players and they are winning,” Jones said.

The Georgia Lady Bulldogs saw their season come to an end in the NCAA Tournament Round of 32 with a 74-66 loss to the No. 2-seeded Iowa Hawkeyes. Georgia fought hard into the last minute of the game but simply ran out of gas against what some think may be the second-best team in the nation on their home court.

Georgia had a lot of recruiting visits this weekend, and extended an offer to 2024 4-star tight end, Caleb Odum. “My favorite part of the visit this weekend was definitely getting to be able to continue building the relationships with all the coaches and just being able to sit in in meetings and listen to Kirby Smart”, Odom told Dawg Post.

New NCAA President Charlie Baker spoke about the state of college sports recently, saying “I don’t think the people who say it is going through a tumultuous time are exaggerating. I mean, that’s the reason I took the job. I could have done a lot of other things that would be a lot easier.” Baker took over for exiting and embattled president Mark Emmert on March 1.
