Georgia football welcomed Ohio State commit Jeremiah Smith for a visit, took the lead for a five-star DB and got a RB back from the portal.

Georgia football’s short-term goal is pretty clear: Win a third consecutive national championship.

But Bulldog’s long-term goals are as lofty as that one, and may even be equally attainable. The 2024 recruiting class is just one piece of the puzzle as Kirby Smart looks to build a football dynasty to rival Nick Saban’s at Alabama.

So this week, the big news swirling around Athens has to do with efforts to land the biggest fish the recruiting trail has to offer.

New Georgia quarterback commit Dylan Raiola is hoping to provide plenty of assists to five-star wide receiver Jeremiah Smith once they move up to the college level. He just needs to convince him to flip his commitment from Ohio State to the Bulldogs first.

Raiola delivered his first helping hand to Smith during his official visit over the weekend. He was seen helping the receiver with trying on his uniform on social media.

Further photos of Smith in those threads proved the Georgia uniform suits him just fine.

Raiola is the No. 1 player in the class of 2024 and the centerpiece of Georgia’s recruiting class. Smith is the No. 2 player in the class. If the Bulldogs successfully flipped him they’d have the most coveted offensive duo in the class.

While Smith remains an Ohio State commit, there seems to be real momentum in favor of the Dawgs. We’ll see if they can keep it up after Smith has his official visit to Ohio State on June 9.
