It's an exciting moment to be a University of Georgia football fan. Kirby Smart's school grabbed two of the best transfers in college football on Tuesday. Two former five-star prospects have committed to the Bulldogs:
· Former Clemson five-star defensive back Derion Kendrick
· Former LSU five-star tight end Arik Gilbert
Gilbert is a Georgia native who is delighted to be returning to his home state. “Coming home, I believe it was a smart decision to come home. I wanted to be with and near my family, I have been missing all of family and now both of my grandmothers will be able see me play in person too,” Gilbert told 247Sports.
These are two huge signings for Georgia, and they are a portent of things to come in college football. Thanks to the NCAA Transfer Portal, we're likely to see an increase in large signings.
Georgia is set to open the season on a big platform, as a preseason top five club. At 7:30 p.m., the Bulldogs will face Clemson. On September 4th, E.T. will begin.
