ATHENS - Is there a California to Georgia trend going on at running back these days?

It sure seems like it.

Of course, Georgia running backs coach Dell McGee went out to California and landed Kendall Milton in the 2020 class and then went back out there to land superstar back Roderick Robinson‍ in the 2023 class.

At “Running Back University”, location doesn’t matter. The Bulldogs recruit the best of the best no matter where they are, and it appears they’re trending in the right direction for another California native in 5-star Jordon Davison‍.

Currently the top-ranked running back prospect in the country for the 2025 class, Davison is a dynamic, tackle-breaking back with plenty of speed out of powerhouse Mater Dei (CA).

Thee big 5-foot-11 200-pounder is very familiar with the Georgia football program and spoke with Dawg Post about what he likes most about the national championship program.

“UGA is a special place because of the culture and the support of the staff, fans, and the community in general”, Davison said. 

Dell McGee, one of the top running back recruiters in the country, has already established a great relationship with the elite tailback.

“There’s a lot of things I like about Coach McGee but of the things that stick out about him is that he’s a real person and will always tell you the truth no matter how bad it is, and will never sugarcoat anything. As I’ve been going through the process I’ve learned that people just want you so they can keep their job but Coach McGee has never approached me with that type of mentality. It’s always been building a real relationship that could last after football.”

After landing Milton and Robinson, two of the very best to come out of California in recent years, it’s safe to say McGee has an excellent chance of landing Davison when the time comes.

The 5-star told Dawg Post that he’s already been to Athens six times including a trip in early November to see Georgia take down Tennessee. He admitted that he’s in no rush to make a commitment right now, but it’s clear the Bulldogs sit in an excellent position at the moment.

As a sophomore in 2022, playing for one of the top programs in American, Davison rushed 170 times for 1,514 yards (8.9 yards per attempt) and 17 touchdowns. He’s ranked in the 247 Composite as the No. 1 RB prospect, the No. 1 prospect in California, and the No. 14 overall prospect in the 2025 class.
