Georgia reached into the transfer portal once again on Thursday and grabbed a defensive back. Collin Gill, who spent the 2023 season at Oregon, is now a Bulldog and he’s expected to help out at safety. The Washington D.C. native did not play during his first season of college ball, taking a redshirt and giving him four years to play four.

DawgsHQ has confirmed that Gill will be on scholarship at Georgia. It appears as if he got the final open scholarship for the Bulldogs and a quick look at his senior highlights at St. John’s School shows that what both Oregon and UGA see in the former three-star prospect.

At 6-feet 190 pounds, Gill was ranked as the nation’s No. 1,060 prospect in the 2023 class per the On3 Industry Ranking, a weighted average that includes all four websites that publish recruiting rankings. He was the No. 102 cornerback and the No. 6 player in Washington D.C.

Gill is part of Georgia’s biggest transfer portal haul ever…

Prior to 2024, the most players Georgia had gotten out of the transfer portal in one cycle was three. That happened in 2023 when the Bulldogs added Dominic Lovett from Missouri, Rara Thomas from Mississippi State, and Smoke Bouie from Texas A&M.

Gill brings the Georgia total to nine in the current class, by far the Bulldogs’ biggest ever. UGA added three wideouts via the transfer portal in London Humphreys (Vanderbilt), Colbie Young (Miami), and Michael Jackson III (USC). The Bulldogs also went into the transfer portal for a running back, Trevor Etienne (Florida) and a defensive lineman, Xzavier McLeod (South Carolina).

Gill is Georgia’s second transfer addition in the defensive backfield, joining Jake Pope. The Buford High school product played his first two seasons of college ball at Alabama. Gill is also UGA’s fourth addition from the old PAC12, joining Jackson, former Stanford tight end Ben Yurosek and former Arizona State quarterback Jaden Rashada.
