ESPN recently ranked the top-50 newcomers for the 2022 college football season. Its list included both incoming high school recruits plus players who transferred via the portal.
Georgia did not sign any transfers this offseason, but it did land the nation's No. 3 ranked 2022 recruiting class with 30 signees, five of which were 5-star prospects.
Former Georgia wide receiver Jermaine Burton, who transferred to Alabama this offseason, ranked No. 12 on the list.
Georgia freshman defensive end Mykel Williams, who ranked as the nation's No. 4 overall recruit, checked in at No. 33 overall.
Williams got the start with the No. 2 defense at G-Day. The 2022 Maxwell Football Club Defensive National High School Player of the Year was one of the top pass rushers in the class, and he quickly made a name for himself in the locker room.
In an interview on "UGA Football Live with J.C. Shelton," former UGA tight end John Fitzpatrick, now with the Atlanta Falcons, described Williams after blocking him in practice while preparing for the College Football Playoff.
Next on the list was Georgia safety Malaki Starks, who ranked No. 42 by ESPN.
Starks came to Georgia as a 5-star who ranked No. 19 in the nation and as the No. 1 ranked athlete.
