Georgia got a crucial victory Saturday on its quest for a third straight College Football Playoff appearance, and the Bulldogs are also trending to get some more good news on the recruiting front.
Greensboro (N.C.) Grimsley four-star wide receiver Terrell Anderson took an official visit to Athens to watch UGA face Missouri. And coming out of that visit, Kirby Smart and Co. are now the favorite to land him, according to the On3 Recruiting Prediction Machine (RPM).
Following a pick from NC State recruiting insider Ethan McDowell in Georgia’s favor, the Bulldogs hold a 94.5 percent chance of securing Anderson’s commitment.
Heading into the trip, the Bulldogs had some serious momentum with star wideout, according to On3 Director of Recruiting Chad Simmons.
“The interest is there for sure with Terrell Anderson and Georgia. It’s kind of been trending toward the Bulldogs, but he doesn’t say a lot — he’s a pretty quiet recruit who likes to go under the radar on his visits,” Simmons said last week. “He visited last month as well, and this trip will be an official visit. There’s been a lot of questions about what Georgia does at receiver after losing Ny Carr. They’ve started recruiting Kam Mikell there, but there’s also the possibility they go to the transfer portal. But there’s definitely interest with Anderson. They signed his high school teammate Jamaal Jarrett last cycle, and receivers coach Bryan McClendon has been up to his school. This will be something to watch between now and December.”
Bulldogs looking to add another talented playmaker
Following the defection of the aforementioned Carr, Georgia has been working to add another wide receiver to a class that features four-star Ni’Tareon Tuggle and three-star Sacovie White. The 6-foot-3, 180-pounder is a drastically different style of player than the smaller Carr, but has been one of the nation’s most impressive prospects this fall.
Through 10 games as a senior, Anderson has hauled in 43 catches and totaled 776 yards and 10 touchdowns. That follows a junior season where caught 64 balls for more than 1,200 yards and 11 TDs.
While other recruiting services rate him as a four-star prospect, On3 is the highest on him of any major recruiting media company. In the most recent On300 rankings, Anderson was tabbed as the country’s No. 96 overall prospect and No. 17 wide receiver.
