Things haven’t been trending in the right direction recently for Kirby Smart and Cortez Hankton on the recruiting trail, but they did get some good news today from one of their newest wide receiver targets.

4-star WR Jayden Gibson‍, who was offered by the Bulldogs just a few days ago on July 5th, put the Bulldogs in his top group today.

I mean, it’s a Top 8, but still.

“I was excited about the UGA offer for sure”, Gibson told Dawg Post. “I was hoping it would come through. I don’t know too much about the program as of now but I’m definitely going to start learning more.”

He might not know a ton about Georgia’s program right now, but as one of the biggest programs to have extended an offer, the Bulldogs easily made the cut.

“UGA made my top group because they’re a top SEC school and me and coach Hankton are alike in many ways based of the conversations we have had already.”

The Bulldogs would love some momentum at wide receiver right now as they recently lost out to Ohio State for 4-star in-state receiver, Kojo Antwi‍.

With one wide receiver currently committed in four-star De'Nylon Morrissette‍, Hankton and the Bulldogs are looking to add at least two more in this 2022 class. Most of the country’s top receiver prospects are currently committed elsewhere, so Gibson has certainly become an important target to know about moving forward.

Ranked as No.36 WR prospect in the country, Gibson has great size at 6-foot-4 185-pounds and sources say he will likely shoot up the rankings this fall.

As a player, Gibson is a big target who runs really well for his size. He’s got enough length and size to play on the outside, and he has the ability to pick up big yards after the catch. Once he gets some space, he can be really tough for smaller defenders to bring him down.

He’s a big down-field threat and can take it the distance on any particular play. He can get off press coverage with ease and showed he’s a fluid runner with the ball. He picks up yards in a hurry and can make the tough catch in traffic down the field.

He’s got size, hands, and the ability to pick yards after the catch. He's certainly a prospect to keep a close eye on in the 2022 class.
