This Can’t be! Georgia’s head Coach Kirby Smart was fired earlier today after Confronting the….

Kirby Smart and Georgia secured their highest-ranked commitment in the class of 2025 on Wednesday afternoon when in-state linebacker Zayden Walker, the No. 15 overall prospect and No. 2 outside linebacker in the 2025 ESPN 300, picked the Bulldogs over Miami and South Carolina, among others.


The four-star prospect from Georgia’s Schley High School is the state’s fourth-ranked recruit in his class, per ESPN’s rankings. Walker was scheduled for visits to Miami and South Carolina later this month, but he verbally committed to the Bulldogs following an official visit to Athens this past weekend. Georgia defensive coordinator Glenn Schumann served as Walker’s primary recruiter in a process that began during Walker’s freshman year of high school.



Walker now stands as the top-ranked member of the Bulldogs’ 2025 class. Alongside Walker in that group are tight ends Elyiss Williams (No. 29 in ESPN 300) and Ethan Barbour (No. 43), linebacker Jadon Perlotte (No. 66), offensive tackle Mason Short and quarterback Ryan Montgomery (No. 125), as well as defensive linemen Darren Ikinnagbon (No. 217) and Stephon Shivers (No. 288).


After inking the No. 1 signing class in the 2024 cycle, Georgia stands at No. 13 in ESPN’s latest team rankings in 2025. In Walker, Kirby Smart & Co. have a cornerstone commitment to build on as they seek to secure their ninth consecutive top-three class.

Jackson, who was first offered by Ohio State in June 2022, committed to the Buckeyes following an official visit to Georgia last month and a trip to Ohio State this past weekend. He is the first running back to commit to Ohio State in the 2025 cycle.


Jackson, of course, also carries the same name as Auburn’s star running back of the 1980s, and his “Bo” moniker is, in fact, a direct nod to 1985 Heisman Trophy winner.


Born Lamar Jackson Jr., “Bo” became Jackson’s nickname at an early age and it stuck. Like the two-time All-American at Auburn, this Jackson also is a multisport athlete, starring in baseball and track and field outside of football at Villa Angela-St. Joseph.


Notably, Auburn was the last SEC program to offer Jackson during his recruitment.
