The thought might seem absurd, but if recruiting experts are correct, the future is brighter than ever in Athens.
The most five stars signed by a school in one class is six, which Alabama has done four times in the past five years. Alabama has also claimed the top recruiting class in the country for the past seven years, but it appears that streak is coming to an end and a new run is beginning in Georgia in 2018.
Roquan Smith was a four-star recruit, and he is projected to be a top pick in the draft should he pass on returning for his senior year. Dominick Sanders was a three-star recruit, and he finished his career tied for the most interceptions in school history.
But somehow, the 2018 recruiting class will end up even better than the year prior, and national records could be broken in the process.
Looking ahead to 2019, there are three five-star recruits already committed to Georgia, and all three are among the top 10 players in the nation.
