COMMIT: 5-Star QB Dylan Raiola Commits to the Dawgs

Will Morrison

Georgia has landed the #1 overall rated prospect in the 2024 cycle as 5-star quarterback Dylan Raiola gave his commitment to UGA today. 

Raiola is 6'3", weighs 220 pounds and plays at Pinnacle High School in Phoenix, Arizona. He's the #1 quarterback and the #1 overall-rated prospect in the 2024 cycle. Raiola has an outstanding arm and can deliver the ball from many different angles, throwing around rushers and fitting the ball into tight windows. Raiola prefers to move around the pocket and find an open receiver rather than take off and use his legs, but he has good mobility and can run if he needs to. 

Raiola was previously committed to Ohio State before deciding to decommit from the Buckeyes in December of 2022. By landing Raiola, the Bulldogs beat out QB guru Lincoln Riley and USC and also Nebraska, where his father played and where his uncle currently coaches.
Dylan's father, Dominic, was a center for former UGA great Matthew Stafford in his years playing for the Detroit Lions, and they are still close today. By rating, Raiola is the second-highest-rated recruit ever to commit to the University of Georgia, as he's behind Justin Fields (0.9998) and ahead of Nolan Smith (0.9994). Raiola is also the third highest-rated quarterback prospect of all time, behind only Trevor Lawrence and Justin Fields. 

Many thought Georgia may struggle to land Raiola when OC Todd Monken returned to the NFL this offseason, but that wasn't the case. Mike Bobo’s relationship with Raiola was strong throughout the recruitment and some insiders believe his promotion to OC was a large factor in Georgia landing the Arizona product.
Georgia wants to take two quarterbacks in this class as they did not sign one in the 2023 cycle, and Raiola was the perfect addition. Dylan joins top-130-rated prospect Ryan Puglisi as the second QB commit in the 2024 class and is the 12th overall commitment of the cycle. The Bulldogs jump back to the #1 ranked class in the 2024 cycle following the commitment of Raiola. UGA's hold on the #1 overall class could grow after seeing which prospects decide to follow Dylan to Georgia. The Dawgs now have six commitments on offense and six on defense.
