Jamaal Jarrett, one of the nation’s top quarterbacks, ranked Georgia football in the top three schools, including the Bulldogs, North Carolina, and Auburn.
Jarrett is 6ft 6in and weighs 350lbs as a rising high schooler, physique and engine make him one of the top defensive targets in the entire class of 2023.
Jarrett, who graduated from Grimsley High School in Greensboro, North Carolina, will perform the ceremony on July 19.
Some have compared Jarrett to a similarly built former Georgia linebacker from North Carolina, Jordan Davis, who was selected in the first round of the 2022 NFL Draft.
We had the opportunity to see first hand how the UGA defense could use such a player in their scheme last season. Davis walked away with the 2021 Outland Trophy and the Chuck Bednarik Award.
Will Jarrett choose Georgia?
The Bulldogs have arguably established themselves as the best defensive line-builders in all of college football in their national championship season after producing three first-round picks this spring, including Travon Walker’s No. 1 pick overall.
You can thank defensive line coach Trey Scott for his impressive efforts.
Returning star Jalen Carter is considered by most experts to be in the top three for 2023, so it looks like UGA’s defensive dominance will continue next fall when Jarrett becomes a rookie.
With coaches from North Carolina and Auburn at the forefront this season, the consistency, development, and toughness of the Georgia defense that the Georgia defense is known for should be an intriguing attraction for the Dogs.
Jarrett spoke about his recent visit to Athens last week.
“It was one of the best I’ve ever had,” he said. “It was just amazing, man. Good experience. I will definitely come back to play.”
The UGA even brought in Philadelphia Eagle Davis to give some idea of how good he could be in Georgia.
“Jordan Davis met one-on-one with me and my family,” Jarrett said. “He said ‘You know what to do if you want to be great’ and ‘Look at the people who played before me’ and ‘Look at the people who played with me’ and he was very like ‘Come, be a dude.” So it was amazing, man.”
247 Sports recruiting experts are currently predicting that Jarrett dedicate yourself to the bulldogs.
This would give Dogs No. 4 class another boost after receiving promises from five-star corner AJ Harris, four-star linebacker CJ Allen and top kicker Peyton Woodring last week.
