So far, Kirby Smart has locked down 17 commitments in the 2025 recruiting class and his group is ranked No. 3 in the country. One of the classes headliners is five-star edge rusher Isaiah Gibson who on June 24, flipped his commitment from his home-state school USC, to the cross-country Bulldogs. 

Since that foundational piece was added to the class, two three-star receivers and a three-star interior offensive lineman have announced their intentions to head to Athens. Now, it appears that another five-star flip is coming. 

Five-star defensive lineman Justus Terry, the consensus No. 7 player in the 2025 recruiting class, de-committed from USC back on June 19 in a month when the Manchester, Georgia native took visits to Georgia, Florida State, USC, and Alabama. Now, with a crystal ball prediction from 247Sports’s Tom Loy and Benjamin Wolk, Terry is expected to play his college football in his home state. 

Carson Beck and Bill Belichick at Manning Passing Academy

Coming into 2024, Carson Beck is nearly the consensus top quarterback on the 2025 NFL Draft boards. So, unsurprisingly, the top returning passer in the country garnered plenty of attention at the Manning Passing Academy, even from legendary coaches who aren’t tied to an NFL team. 

Bill Belichick and his long-time assistant Matt Patricia took time to meet with Beck over the weekend. Belichick doesn’t have a head coaching job right now, but if a team does hire him ahead of the 2025 NFL Draft, it could be a team in need of a quarterback.

Former Georgia Bulldog Aaron Schunk, a two-way star from 2017-19, made his major league debut for the Colorado Rockie son Saturday. Schunk saw his first action as a pinch-hitter in the ninth inning and flew out to right field in the 11-3 loss. 

Schunk was a second-round pick in the 2019 MLB Draft and figures to fit in as a utility infielder for the Rockies.
