Georgia Bulldogs recruiting: Airforce recruiting starts, new stadium to open


— Georgia Bulldogs football players will be among the first to start getting paid for playing football this weekend when the Georgia Football Association kicks off the recruiting process.

The Bulldogs have already announced that they are recruiting Georgia’s newest high school coach, a former NFL draft pick who has worked in the past with Georgia.

Georgia, which opened the 2018 season with a win over No. 14 Auburn on Sept. 10, will begin the process of filling its 2017 recruiting class, which is comprised of players from the Bulldogs’ four high schools.

The 2017 class was projected to be the most-talented in Georgia history and one of the most productive, according to 247Sports Composite Rankings.

The Bulldogs’ class ranks third in the nation and the Bulldogs have signed three of the top six players in the 2017 class.

Georgia’s new recruiting base includes top prospects like tight end Austin Shepherd and linebacker D.J. Taylor, who were both named first-team All-SEC this past season.

The first wave of players will have a chance to compete against other top recruits on Saturday when the Bulldogs open their first recruiting day in a new stadium.
