The 6-foot-1, 185-pound safety is near the top of a lot of recruiting boards. Out of Buford, Georgia, K.J. Bolden plays for an elite program and will be ready to start day one.
Ohio State, Michigan, Clemson, and Alabama are just some of the programs in the mix for Buford. Georgia football is the favorite right now according to the On3 prediction machine and if the Bulldogs were able to land the top-ranked player in their state, at least according to the 247 sports composite rankings, it would be a big victory.
Out of Jefferson, Georgia, another player the Bulldogs should desperately want in the fold is 6-foot-2, 225-pound linebacker Sammy Brown.
Brown is the 18th-ranked prospect overall in the 2024 class according to the On3 industry rankings. Georgia football is right in the mix but Brown’s leader according to the On3 prediction machine is Clemson.
Georgia has had him on campus eight times but hasn’t scheduled an official visit yet despite Brown having visits set for Clemson and Ohio State.
The Bulldogs seem destined to land the No. 1 class but if they can land these impact defenders, it might be among the best recruiting classes ever.
