5-star Georgia QB commit Gunner Stockton puts up CRAZY numbers in win

5-star quarterback Gunner Stockton has been committed to Georgia since January of 2021.

The 6-foot-1, 195 pound dual-threat passer out of Rabun County High School ranks as the nation’s No. 28 overall player in the class of 2022 and as the top ranked dual-threat quarterback, per Rivals.

On Saturday, Stockton showed why he deserves those rankings, putting up absolutely insane numbers in a win over Pace Academy.

Stockton accounted for 7 total touchdowns (6 passing, 1 rushing). He passed for 382 yards and added another 105 on the ground.

Stockton also made his prediction for Georgia vs Clemson, this coming Saturday in Charlotte.

Five-star QB recruiting increases UGA football's odds to land in-state WR recruit

Brookwood wide receiver dropped his top seven schools on Monday.

The recent commitment of class of 2022 five-star quarterback Gunner Stockton and signing of '21 five-star Brock Vandagriff has in-state (Snellville) wide receiver prospect De’Nylon Morrissette considering UGA more heavily than before.

“Just watch him (Gunner) play and you’ll see,” Morrissette, a four-star prospect from Brookwood High, said of Stockton. “He puts it right on the money every time. There’s nothing to complain about when he’s at quarterback.”

Morrissette is ranked the 22nd-best class of 2022 recruit in the state of Georgia by 247Sports.com. He released his top seven schools Monday, with both Alabama and UGA making the cut. 

The list also included Georgia Tech, Oregon, Notre Dame, South Carolina and USC. 

Morrissette has heard ‘go Dawgs’ in practice every day for the last year playing alongside four-star UGA commit Marquis Groves-Killebrew.

“He’s (Groves-Killebrew) been pushing it a lot,” Morrissette said.

During his pre-COVID-19 recruitment, Morrissette didn’t visit many of the schools that are now interested in him, though he has been on a few campuses.

Things have changed since the COVID-19 pandemic closed down campus visits for prospective athletes in March. His plan was to base his decision on the program that most felt like home, but that's a difficult task when evaluating places he’s never been to in person.

Though he hopes to build relationships with all the coaches recruiting him, Morrissette admits he may have to fall back on previous relationships with other recruits due to limited interactions with coaches and players for nearly a year.

“It’ll be a big part, it’s going to have to be more than the coaches that are recruiting us,” Morrissette said. “We (the players) talk a lot amongst ourselves. That’s a huge part of this.”

Alabama appears to be in a good spot for Morrissette. His family is full of diehard Crimson Tide fans.

The program has turned out plenty of elite wide receivers in recent memory. Devanta Smith won the Heisman Trophy in December. Henry Ruggs, Jerry Jeudy, Julio Jones, Calvin Ridley and Amari Cooper were all first-round selections in their respective NFL drafts.

Getting an offer from the Crimson Tide was major for the 6-foot-2, 200-pound pass catcher from Brookwood.

“It means a lot to me, because that’s my dream school,” Morrisette said. “I grew up an Alabama fan and my whole family is Alabama fans. It means a lot that they recruited me.”

Morrisette’s recruitment is far from over, but he hopes to take visits and make a commitment by late March or April.

5-star QB Brock Vandagriff could take UGA to the promised land

Departing Georgia quarterback Jake Fromm took the Bulldogs to three-straight SEC title games with one appearance in the national title game. It was a hell of a run in Athens but head coach Kirby Smart and his staff are longing to take the next step.

New 2021 quarterback commit Brock Vandagriff appears to have the traits to help them do just that in the quest to ultimately hoist a crystal ball. The in-state junior announced his decision to play in Athens on Tuesday.

Fromm was a terrific game manager for Georgia during his time under center and is the No. 6 quarterback on the CBSSports NFL Draft Board, but the five-star Vandagriff looks like a game-breaker. If you look at all four quarterbacks that played in this year’s college football playoff (LSU’s Joe Burrow, Clemson’s Trevor Lawrence, Ohio State’s Justin Fields and Oklahoma’s Jalen Hurts), they can each impact the game with their legs as much as their arm. Ranked as the No. 1 pro-style passer and No. 8 prospect overall by the 247Sports Composite, the the 6-foot-2 1/2, 199-pound Vandagriff brings many of the same elements.

As a junior playing for his father at Bogart (Ga.) Prince Avenue School, Vandagriff completed 71 percent of his attempts, averaged 308 yards passing per game and threw for 2,471 yards and 31 touchdowns to just three interceptions playing most of the campaign on a broken fibula. He got hurt in Week 3, missed four games and didn’t feel like himself until week 12 where in an epic playoff loss to Eagles Landing Christian he threw for 525 yards and six scores with another 84 rushing yards and two more touchdowns. He makes the vertical throws look easy and he’s accurate on the short stuff, but Vandagriff separates from a lot of his peers being able to throw the timing routes, comebacks, intermediate tosses and back-shoulder throws. And then you have the wheels where he laser-timed last spring at 4.69 in the 40-yard dash attending a The Opening Regional.

Vandagriff emerged as a name to know nationally following a sophomore campaign where he threw for 3,190 yards and 28 touchdowns while using his speed to gain 1,001 yards on the ground and score 23 times. He committed to Oklahoma in June, a “business decision” his father Greg called it, but reopened the process on New Year’s Day after Brock realized he wanted to play closer to family.

Smart and his staff will rely on Wake Forest transfer Jamie Newman this coming fall and Vandagriff will then immediately come in and push strong-armed 2020 signee Carson Beck for the job the following year. Of all the big recruiting wins Smart has had over the last four cycles, including three-straight top-three recruiting classes, this is his biggest one since, gulp, landing Justin Fields or flipping Fromm from Alabama the year before. It's a commitment that all but ensures the state of the program as a title contender down the road.

“Here’s the hard truth about it,” Vandagriff’s dad Greg said. “One of the things with Brock, one of the criteria for him, he wants to win a championship. Not just win.

“Whatever it is, we’re there to win it all. Playing travel baseball, we want to win a championship, not finish fourth or 12th. Early on he said dad ‘I want to go somewhere that can win a championship.’ I’m like Brock there are only six teams a year that can win a championship. Five every year and then a run off. The five in our opinion are Clemson, Georgia, Alabama, Ohio State and Oklahoma. Those five are there year in and year out. Then there is a run off. Last year it was Notre Dame. This year it was LSU. Next year who knows. Then you start looking at the five, Clemson just signed the No. 1 quarterback, obviously we were committed to Oklahoma, Alabama they have a different coach (offensive coordinator) every year and we didn’t like that situation and we’re not going to Ohio State, we’re from the South the fat ankle conference. Then there is Georgia, a no-brainer in our backyard.”

Vandagriff is a no-brainer recruit that also held offers from the likes of the Crimson Tide, Auburn, Florida, LSU, Michigan, Penn State and Tennessee. Schools loved the way he carries himself as much as the on-field talent. From the instincts, to the anticipation, to the leadership ability, Vandagriff checks all the boxes. 

“He came home playing ping pong Saturday night with his buddies and was like Dad I’m 33-0,” the elder Vandagriff said. “He keeps up with it like it matters. His ping pong record. When you compete in everything you’re like that. Going through his entire record of everything he’s done from travel baseball where we played 50, 60 games a year and only losing eight to middle school football to now, he doesn’t understand anything but winning. He’s a 4.1 or something GPA. You don’t just turn it on and turn it off. You’re competing in the classroom, on the football field and you’re competing in ping pong. I told him when he was young you circle the day on the calendar when you beat me in something. Nothing is easy around here. He finally beat me in ping pong at 13 and we had to stop playing basketball it was so physical.”

Vandagriff is commit No. 3 very early in the 2021 cycle for Smart and his staff. The day he reopened the process he was a must get for Smart and company and they got their guy.

5-star UGA QB commit Brock Vandagriff recruits nation's No. 2 TE to Georgia

Georgia’s 5-star 2021 quarterback commit Brock Vandagriff has been playing a big role in recruiting members of UGA’s 2021 recruiting class.

Vandagriff, from Bogart, Georgia, plays for Prince Avenue Christian School and is actively recruiting some of the most talented players in the 2021 class to play along side him at UGA.

Vandagriff tweeted at Brock Bowers, the nation’s No. 2 tight end in the 2021 class, recruiting him to Athens.

Bowers is from Napa, California, and listed at 6-foot-3, 225 pounds. He has over 20 offers, and Georgia appears to be the leader right now.

Vandagriff fancied the idea of a “Brock-to-Brock” connection in Athens down the road, which could be very fun to watch.

5-Star QB Gunner Stockton Commits to Georgia After South Carolina Decommitment

Image via 247Sports.com

Georgia's recruiting class for 2022 got a major boost Thursday with 5-star quarterback Gunner Stockton committing to the Bulldogs. 

The Tiger, Georgia, native is ranked as the top dual-threat quarterback in the Class of 2022, the No. 4 player from Georgia and the No. 38 player in the country overall, per 247Sports.   

Georgia will be bringing aboard a player fresh off a brilliant junior season. Stockton threw for 3,128 yards, 45 touchdowns and four interceptions, adding 1,581 yards and 26 scores on the ground. Players who make that level of impact as both a passer and runner are rare. 

Brooks Austin of SI.com noted Stockton has "one of the most explosive arms in the country as only a junior in high school and can make any throw in the book. He improvises well when forced out of the pocket and can throw off any platform."

Barton Simmons of 247Sports added that the young quarterback is "comfortable making tight-window seem throws with velocity" and is in the "very early stages of a potential NFL prospect but significant experience and development is still necessary."

Stockton had initially committed to South Carolina in August but changed his tune on Jan. 12:

Steve Wiltfongof 247Sports reported that he had made his commitment to former South Carolina head coach Will Muschamp and former offensive coordinator Mike Bobo in August. But Muschamp was fired in November, and Bobo took a job as Auburn's offensive coordinator.

Connor Shaw, who Stockton specifically referenced in his decommitment announcement, is South Carolina's director of player development. In August, Stockton said that Shaw was his "role model growing up."

Georgia will be thrilled Stockton chose to leave his role model behind to sign with the Bulldogs. He has all the makings of a potential superstar at the college level.

Georgia lands highly touted 2021 QB recruit Brock Vandagriff

Jan 21, 2020
  • Tom VanHaarenESPN Staff Writer

Georgia filled a need at quarterback on Tuesday when ESPN Junior 300 signal-caller Brock Vandagriff committed to the Dawgs.

Vandagriff is the No. 24-ranked recruit in the 2021 class and the No. 2 prospect in the state of Georgia. He's a 6-foot-3, 200-pound prospect from Prince Avenue Christian School in Bogart, Georgia.

Vandagriff originally committed to Oklahoma in June, but he decommitted from the Sooners in January.

Georgia coach Kirby Smart and his staff are going to have a new starting quarterback in the 2020 season as Jake Fromm is headed to the NFL. The coaches flipped quarterback D'Wan Mathis from Ohio State and picked up junior college quarterback Stetson Bennett in the 2019 class and ESPN 300 quarterback Carson Beck in 2020.

The Bulldogs also added Wake Forest transfer Jamie Newman, who has one year of eligibility remaining.

Newman will be off the roster once Vandagriff arrives, and Vandagriff will have an opportunity to compete for the starting job. In adding Vandagriff to the 2021 class, Georgia now has three ESPN Junior 300 commitments.
