ATHENS - Kirby Smart, Stacy Searels, and the Georgia Bulldogs signed an excellent OL class in the latest 2023 cycle, and they are looking to add another outstanding haul in the current 2024 class.

Searels, who coached the best offensive line in college football last year, does not yet have an offensive lineman committed in the 2024 class. However, Dawg Post confirmed this week that Searels has put the Bulldogs in a favorable position for one of the very best offensive tackle prospects in the country.

That would Pine Forest (FL) standout, Jonathan Daniels.

Ranked as the No. 1 OT prospect in the country according to On3, most sources believe the in-state Florida State Seminoles are the clear favorite to land the big-time tackle prospect. Still, the Bulldogs are keeping in contact, and Daniels recently told Dawg Post that he has a great relationship with Georgia’s assistant coach.

“I’ll be visiting Florida State this weekend and I’m getting a date for UGA during my spring break (week of March 13th)”, Daniels told Dawg Post.

With Tallahassee less than 200 miles away, and with the Seminoles’ program back on the rise, it’s easy to see why Florida State is believed to be the team out in front. In the end, they’ll have to fight off Stacy Searels and the Bulldogs to land his commitment.

“I love everything about coach Searels and the relationship has definitely developed a lot”, Daniels said. “We communicate every day and the bond is getting stronger.”

Daniels said that while he didn’t visit for a game in Athens last fall, he has been to the Classic City two separate times in the past. He’s familiar with the program and has seen the amount of offensive linemen who have gone on to do big things in the NFL.


You Can't Find This Anywhere Else!

As a prospect, it’s harder to find a more athletic offensive tackle across the South than Daniels. At 6-foot-5 285-pounds, the Pensacola native has a long and promising frame and moves extremely well for his size. A two-way player who dominates on both sides of the line of scrimmage for Pine Forest, Daniels flashed consistently as a junior last year no matter where he was lined up.

At tackle, his length allows him to be a promising pass protector at the next level. He plays with balance, quick feet, and gets to the second level with ease. He can overpower smaller defenders with ease and opens up plenty of holes in the run game. He’s smooth in his sets and makes dominating opposing defenders look easy. He dominated at right tackle last year and showed on film why he’s one of the very best across the country in the 2024 class.
