Not surprisingly, Georgia didn’t extend many new offers in the days preceding or after July Fourth. Having said that, the Bulldogs have added three new targets in the past two weeks. The June 24–July 24 dead period is a major contributing factor to the slowdown. Recruits and their parents are not allowed to speak with college coaches face-to-face during that period.

Former All-Star basketball player Jahzare Jackson revealed on Monday that he will be joining the Georgia football team for the 2025 class, marking the 29th late addition to the class. The 340-pound, 6-foot-10 recruit decided on Georgia over Florida State, Mississippi State, and Florida. In the 2024 cycle, Jackson joins Nyier Daniels, Daniel Calhoun, Marques Easley, Michael Uini, Marcus Harrison, and Malachi Toliver as the eighth offensive lineman under head coach Stacy Searels. Jackson is rated as the No. 61 overall talent in California and the No. 45 offensive tackle in the nation. Jackson’s acquisition strengthens Georgia’s class, which was previously ranked first in the 247Sports Team Class Rankings.

See Jackson’s training footage above in a detailed Overtime Elite video that follows his transition from the hardwood to the gridiron. Jackson was rated as a 3-star center by after graduating from high school. He was ranked as the No. 232 overall basketball prospect and the No. 35 center in the country. Jackson’s official visit to Georgia was his final one of the June window, following official trips to Florida, Florida State, and Mississippi State. The Bulldogs completed a recruiting cycle that gained momentum following Jackson’s camp with the team earlier in the cycle when he traveled to Athens from June 21–23.

“What makes UGA? I mean, I was totally smitten with the coaches. I developed feelings for the school. When I arrived, the players were friendly,” Jackson wrote in his announcement post. “In the end of the day, I’m still in Georgia. That was crucial to my ability to remain in Georgia. I simply had the impression that I had arrived at my true home. The coaches were all really nice.
