Edwards should come to the full spot No. 1 in 247Sports composite ratings, it would give the full player No. 1 in both basketball and football, as Nolan Smith signed to Georgia in December. If this happens, Georgia was the first program since recruitment ratings doubled in 2003 to wire No. 1 sign the country in both basketball and football.

Even if Edwards is not able to finish it as the best prospect in class, Georgia needs an environment when it comes to landing elite talent in both basketball and football. Since basketball recruitment ratings started back in 2003, there was only four times a school that signed top-5 players in both basketball and football: Alabama in 2017 (Collin Sexton in basketball, Najee Harris in football), Ohio State in 2008 (BJ Mullens in basketball, Terrelle Pryor in football), USC in 2007 (OJ Mayo in basketball, Joe McKnight in football) and Texas in 2006 (Sergio Kindle in football, Kevin Durant in basketball).

Regarding the basketball team, Edwards said that he hoped to put 5 small stars forward, Precious Achiuwa and Lester Quinones 4 star guard to Georgia's 2019 recruitment class. Class No. 12 in the Bulldogs in 2012 basketball recruitment ratings. Jaykwon Walton and Toumani Camara's 4-star prospect Georgia also signed. Edwards can officially mark Georgia as of April 17, he said he is heavily involved.

Edwards played football growing up, and it was mentioned, if possible, that he would accept the Bulldogs broad receiver theoretically. But Julius Peppers has no plan to draw and play both football and basketball. Edwards hopes to bring Georgia's basketball program at the same level as the football program.

S & P + is a Georgia football at the No. 2 to 2019

The Georgia football has high expectations of 2019, due to the proximity of the Bulldogs winning a national title in each of the past seasons.

And these prospects seem valid, because Georgia Connelly's S & P + & # 39; as team No. 2 in the 2019 season, only behind Alabama. The preseason projection is based on three factors: recent history, back-up production and recruiting.

Clemson comes to No. 3, followed by LSU by No. 4 and Oklahoma at No. 5. For the departments in Georgia in each single category, the Bulldogs No. Class. 2 in both recruiting effects and the return projection. Georgia is No. 7 with past history, highlighting Bulldogs' performance over the past five seasons.

Georgia will see four teams in the top 13 in 2019. Georgia 6 No. Florida (!), No. 8 Auburn, No. 12 Notre Dame and No. 13 Texas A & M. The Bulldogs No. 16 Missouri, No. 18 South Carolina and No. 21 Tennessee, meaning that seven of the top 21 teams in the S & P + ratings at Georgia.
