Georgia has the No. 3 ranked recruiting class and 20 commitments at the start of the day. Georgia has commitments from three 5-star prospects, including quarterback Brock Vandagriff, the nation’s No. 2 dual-threat quarterback.

DawgNation will have live broadcasts and coverage throughout the day, with the first update coming at 10 a.m. on the DawgNation Facebook, Youtube and Twitter pages.

Early Signing Day Georgia football recruiting live updates

8:15 A.M.: Bulldogs already have three signees in the boat, as Tyrion Ingram-Dawkins has sent in his paperwork. Ingram-Dawkins was a big riser in the latest recruiting rankings, with 247Sports listing him as the No. 20 overall prospect in the country.

Ingram-Dawkins is also the No. 1 ranked player in the state of South Carolina. The Bulldogs also have commitments from the No. 1 player in the state of Georgia in Amarius Mims.

8 A.M. Update: Georgia has its first signee of the day, as defensive lineman Jonathan Jefferson takes the honors. Jefferson is from Douglasville, Ga., and rates as the No. 149 overall prospect in the 2021 recruiting cycle. He is one of three defensive linemen in the class, as Tyrion-Ingram Dawkins and Marlin Dean are expected to sign today as well.

Jefferson comes from some pretty strong bloodlines, as is his father was a heavyweight boxer that fought for the WBO title. Jefferson is expected to play defensive tackle.

Georgia also landed offensive lineman Jared Wilson shortly after the 8 a.m. window.

7 A.M. Update: DawgNation will have you covered throughout the day. DawgNation will have live streams at 10 a.m., 1:30 p.m., 3:30 p.m.,  5 p.m. and 8 p.m. to wrap everything up.

The big names to know for the day are 5-star linebacker Xavian Sorey, 5-star defensive tackle Maason Smith 4-star running back Donovan Edwards. Edwards will announce first as Sorey pushed back his announcement to 1:45 p.m. ET.

Of Georgia’s commitments, the first to have their signing ceremony is 4-star offensive tackle Micah Morris. Quarterback Brock Vandagriff is signing at 12:30 p.m. ET.

The Bulldogs enter the day with the No. 3 overall class in the 2021 recruiting cycle. Landing some combination of Sorey, Smith and Edwards should be enough for Georgia to maintain that ranking. The Bulldogs will likely not be able to catch No. 1 Alabama or No. 2 Ohio State.

LSU sits at No. 4 and Clemson is No. 5 entering the day. Georgia has been known to close strong so expect some fireworks today.
