. . . . Georgia. Incoming: 6. . 4. Outgoing: 20. 527

For most schools, 20 outgoing transfers with multiple former five-stars and top 100 recruits fleeing the program would be apocalyptic. For Kirby Smart at Georgia, it's water off a duck’s back. 

Georgia only lost two players who started in 2023, both linebackers, Jamon Dumas-Johnson and Xavian Sorey Jr. and they will be easily replaced by a bevy of five-star freshmen and sophomores. Kirby pushed that position group into a rebuild this offseason, so Sorey and Dumas-Johnson were necessary casualties.

The Bulldogs have the No. 1 high school recruiting class in the country, so the depth lost by the mass exodus will be replaced by four and five-stars who will keep the death machine rolling through the south.

On top of that, Kirby went out and stole running back Travis Etienne from Florida, wide receiver London Humphreys from Vanderbilt, and an oversized 6-foot-5 wideout Colbie Young from Miami. Of his six incoming transfers, all will have a chance to impact the 2024 Bulldogs and many have multiple seasons of eligibility remaining.
