ATHENS - Recruiting season is taking off for Kirby Smart and the Georgia Bulldogs as we head into a critical summer full of key official visits.

Top targets will invade Athens this weekend and throughout the month of June, with more offers being extended as well.

Here are several out-of-state prospects who recently earned an offer from the Georgia Bulldogs...


Jaborree Riggins - WR - Monarch (FL)

A three-star prospect on the rise in Florida, Riggins is a sure-handed wideout with an excellent 6-foot-4 185-pound frame. The high-potential 2026 receiver picked up several major offers so far this month from Georgia, Mississippi State, and Oklahoma.

“When I got the offer from Georgia, I was honestly shocked and super excited. It felt like a dream come true. I've been working really hard, and to get recognized by such a big-time program like Georgia is amazing. The Bulldogs have an incredible history and tradition, especially in the SEC. I know they've been producing a lot of NFL talent and consistently competing for championships.”

Riggins is currently ranked as the No. 64 WR prospect and the No. 392 overall prospect in the county for his class.


According to FanDuel, the Los Angeles Dodgers have -6000 odds to win the NL West this season.



Eric Thomas - DT - East Lee County (FL)

A nasty, physically imposing interior defensive lineman at 6-foot-5 305-pounds, Thomas is a fast-rising lineman from Fort Myers, Florida who has earned recent offers from both Georgia and South Carolina. Defensive line coach Tray Scott has one defensive tackle on the commit list in 3-star Stephon Shivers‍, and now Thomas becomes a defensive line prospect to keep an eye on as well.

Thomas fires into the backfield and swallows up the running back with ease. He lived in the backfield as a junior last fall for East Lee County (FL) where he made 35 tackles, 8.5 TFLs and two sacks.

”I was excited getting a Georgia offer”, Thomas told Dawg Post. “It’s like the ultimate goal in the recruiting world. I know a lot about the Georgia program as I’ve been watching them since I was a kid, especially when they had Jordan Davis.”



Connor Salmin - WR - Woodgrove (VA)

An explosive wide receiver on the rise who runs a 10.5 in the 100-meter, Salmin is a sure-handed wideout who was deadly after the catch last season as a junior. In 10 games, the up-and-coming wideout caught 53 passes for 1,107 total yards and 16 touchdowns. This young man can fly, and his recruitment might take off very, very soon now that the Dawgs have jumped in the mix.

“I was really excited and honored to get the offer, I wasn't expecting it. Georgia Football is such a dominant program, with several recent national titles. That speaks for the leadership and coaching to me, because you can't accomplish that without great coaching.”
