The No. 1 prospect in the 2024 recruiting class, quarterback Dylan Raiola, committed to Georgia on Monday.

Raiola is a 6-foot-3, 220-pound signal-caller from Pinnacle High School in Phoenix, Arizona. He’s a son of former NFL offensive lineman Dominic Raiola, and he chose Georgia over USC and Nebraska.

This is the second commitment for Raiola, who originally announced for Ohio State in May 2022 over his father’s alma mater, Nebraska, as well as Alabama, Georgia, Texas, Notre Dame, Oregon and USC, among others. At the time, it was an important get for Buckeyes coach Ryan Day and his staff, but Raiola decommitted from the Buckeyes on Dec. 17, 2022.

When Raiola decommitted, his father told ESPN that Dylan wouldn’t make an announcement any time soon and that he wanted to take his time with the next decision. He took visits to Nebraska, USC and Georgia. The Trojans made some headway once he took a visit, but Georgia had always been in the picture.

As a junior, Raiola threw for 2,435 yards, 22 touchdowns and 5 interceptions. He threw for 3,341 yards, 32 touchdowns and 5 interceptions during his sophomore campaign and has 11 rushing touchdowns over the past two years.

For Georgia, the Dawgs did not sign a quarterback in the 2023 cycle, but did add ESPN 300 recruit Gunner Stockton in 2022. As of now, Stockton is on the roster with Carson Beck and Brock Vandagriff, but Beck will be a senior once Raiola gets on campus and Beck and Vandagriff will be juniors.

Adding a prospect such as Raiola was crucial for the future success of the offense at Georgia, and he won’t have to come in and start right away. But given his talent, he will push the other three quarterbacks and try to see the field as early as possible.

With his announcement, Georgia now has nine ESPN 300 commitments, including two five-stars in Raiola and corner Ellis Robinson IV. Before Raiola’s announcement, the Dawgs held the No. 1-ranked class overall, and they have only pushed their lead over Ohio State and Michigan.
