Coach Smart’s team has also been active in adding new players this offseason. The Bulldogs’ top transfer portal additions were recently named.

On Saturday, it was announced that Georgia football had beaten out Ohio State football, Texas football and other potential suitors for a top Class of 2026 prospect.

The Georgia football team is expected to enter the 2024 season with Carson Beck, last year’s starter, at quarterback. Beck’s production last season evoked memories of Stetson Bennett, Coach Smart’s two-time national championship winning quarterback. Beck threw for nearly 4,000 yards with 24 touchdowns and six interceptions on the season. He had a QBR of 86 and was recently named the top quarterback in college football by ESPN.com heading into the 2024-2025 season.
