UGA football recruiting update as of December 26, 2016. Kirby Smart’s Bulldogs landed a commitment from a 4-star linebacker on Christmas Day. 


On Sunday, Kirby Smart’s Bulldogs celebrated the holidays in a unique way. They added a key member to their future defensive unit when 4-star prospect Nate McBride committed to Georgia.

The No. 6 inside linebacker and No. 164 overall player in the country chose the Bulldogs over Alabama, Auburn and Oregon.

Thanks to the additions of McBride and 4-star offensive tackle Isaiah Wilson, UGA now sits firmly in the top three of the 2017 recruiting class rankings. And the Bulldogs could be moving further up the board.

Five-star athlete Deangelo Gibbs is set to make his decision on New Year’s Day, and Georgia is competing with Alabama, Tennessee and others for his commitment. The Bulldogs are also battling with rival Florida and others for 3-star offensive tackle Tony Gray, and are the favorites to land him.
