GS focused on heavy recruiting for the offensive line as they’re losing important players like Jeremiah Culbreth and Curtis Rainey and were successful in their recruitment as they are adding five offensive linemen to the offensive roster today. Of those five offensive linemen, GS added players like Aaron Pyron, Griffin Carder, and Javonte McGriff.

Of those 19 commits, 12 players came from Georgia, three from Alabama, and one from both North Carolina and South Carolina.

The Eagles landed other big recruits such as running back Gerald Green, quarterback Jaden Jenkins, and safety Treun Pace.

Georgia Southern Athletics have announced each signee as well as having their bio and player card posted on the roster on their website.
