10 Players Making Waves This Spring

Gunner Stockton

These 10 players are definitely guys to look for at the G-Day game. Although most of them may get limited time in the fall, they are showing a glimpse at the future of Georgia football. The young guys on this list have been learning behind the veterans of the program for three months now, and the transfers on the list are showing why they were sought out by Kirby Smart and his staff in the offseason.

Gunner Stockton (QB)





Although Stockton isn’t going to be coming after Carson Beck’s job, his spring progress and G-Day performance is important. This game is the time for him to prove to the staff and Georgia fans that he is already 10-steps ahead in the QB battle of 2025. Now that Beck has earned his leadership role this spring, Stockton needs to take full advantage of the veteran QB’s knowledge and experience.

KJ Bolden (DB)

Bolden came out of this year’s high school class as the No. 1 safety for a reason. The 5-star out of Buford High School is simply a pure athlete. He has a quick twitch about him and a nose for the football. Bolden has been learning from Malaki Starks all spring, and will be implementing the knowledge he has gained come spring game.





Justin Williams (LB)

The 5-star out of Texas is a beast at the linebacker position that UGA desperately needs. He has quick hands and great vision giving him the ability to apply a lot of pressure in opposing teams backfields, which is something that the UGA fanbase will be happy to see.

Ellis Robinson IV (CB) 

The No. 2 player in the country has it all. He is the epitome of a ball-hawk and it wouldn’t be a surprise if he gets at least one pick during the G-Day game. With the cornerback position partially up for grabs, a big spring game from him would go a long way.

Xzavier McLeod (DL)

McLeod was a 4-star coming out of high school and was also a 4-star transfer prospect. He is coming from South Carolina hungry to be a part of the Dawgs’ defense. Although he is most likely going to be the backup for veteran senior Warren Brinson, McLeod will still have to prove himself coming in as one of the higher rated transfers.

Chris Cole (LB) 

Like Justin Williams, Chris Cole is another beast coming in at the linebacker position. The 5-star out of Salem, Virginia has the perfect size, speed, and agility to be a great linebacker. Although the linebacker position is very deep with veteran players, his athleticism and build won’t be overlooked and will be on full display during the G-Day game.

Daniel Calhoun (LG)

Calhoun was the highest rated trench Dawg that UGA had coming in this offseason. His metrics are unreal, standing at 6’7, 365-pound. He is a force to be reckoned with and is one of the biggest recruits that UGA has seen. He has been learning behind some experienced lineman, but could definitely make a jump in the depth chart with a good spring game.

London Humphreys (WR)

Although he wasn’t a shining star coming out of high school, he is the highest rated transfer that UGA landed this offseason. The transfer from Vanderbilt was named to the SEC All-Freshman Team after being the second leading receiver on his team. With the No. 1 QB in the nation, the sky is the limit for the new Dawg in Athens.

Daylen Everette (CB)

Although he received a lot of criticism for performances last year, Daylen is the guy the Dawgs want leading their secondary. His size and speed as a corner is unmatched and with a year under his belt he is ready to have a breakout year. The spring game will be a big litmus test for him, but he should be able to exceed the standards of the staff and the fans.

Colbie Young (WR)

The veteran wide receiver from Miami is ready to make his closeout season his best yet. Although the Dawgs have three of the five wideouts returning from last season, Young’s size is hard to look past. He is a 6’5” wideout who targets the ball well and has unreal hands. He will definitely be one of the biggest red zone threats in the spring game, which will give the Bulldog Nation a sneak peak of what is to come in the fall season.
