ATHENS - Kirby Smart and the Georgia Bulldogs are looking to finish strong in the 2023 class next week during the February Signing Period, and then all eyes will focus on next year’s 2024 class.

Smart and his staff are off to a terrific start in the 2024 class, holding 8 commitments right now and setting themselves up for the top-ranked class 12 months from now.

Dawg Post expects Georgia to load up on impressive in-state prospects next year and they’ll host one of the state’s best on campus this weekend.

That would be speedy 4-star RB Dwight Phillips Jr.

The Pebblebrook (GA) star is one of the fastest 2024 prospects in the country and the current 7A 100-meter state champion after running a 10.43 last spring. His father was a former four-time world champion in the long-jump, and Phillips Jr. has those speedy, athletic traits as well. He’s not small by any means at 5-foot-11 170-pounds, and he can line up in multiple spots on the field. Whether he’s lined up out wide at receiver, in the backfield, or returning kicks, Phillips Jr is always a threat with the ball in his hands.

Dell McGee already has one running back committed in the 2024 class in four-star Tovani Mizell‍. With McGee taking just one running back in the 2023 class in four-star Roderick Robinson‍, he’ll need to sing two in next year’s 2024 cycle.

Phillips is one of the top running back prospects in the South and it’s easy to see why. He has game-changing speed, and that’s always a quality that is welcome to Athens. Phillips Jr claims a 4.28 laser-times 40-yard dash, meaning he’s easily one of the fastest prospects in the country.

The Bulldogs are also hard after 5-star Jerrick Gibson‍, a former Georgia native from Jonesboro now playing at IMG Academy (FL), and 5-star Florida State commitment Kam Davis‍ from Albany.

Phillips is ranked in the 247 Composite Rankings as the No. 4 RB prospect, the No.13 prospect in Georgia, and the No. 71 overall prospect in Georgia for the 2024 class.
