Georgia spent the opening hours of National Signing Day 2018 overtaking Ohio State for the No. 1 class in the country. The Dawgs’ class isn’t just the best this year. It’s one of the best in the history of recruiting rankings, which go back to about the turn of the millennium…
After the Early Signing Period, Georgia’s recruiting class had an average player score of 93.20 and a raw class score of 311.88 on the 247Sports Composite.
Their surge on Signing Day morning brought them to a 322.39 ranking score with a 94.31 average. That makes UGA’s class — as its stands now, at 26 players — the third-best class in the history of ratings by total points and second-best by average score. But given that we’re talking a matter of decimal points in total score behind a 29-man 2017 Alabama class, it feels right to call Georgia the No. 2 class in ratings history.
You want another example of how insanely, crazy good Georgia’s 2018 class is? That Ohio State class that Georgia battled with down to the wire today, that Georgia finished more than five points ahead of in the 247Sports team rankings? That class is the highest-rated class in Ohio State history.
As Munson would say, the stadium is bonkers.
