The Bulldogs cleaned up on Wednesday.

The inaugural Early Signing Period began yesterday, and there was plenty of action around the country.

A number of five-star prospects came off the board, with three of them signing with Georgia. The Bulldogs landed five-star offensive guard Jamaree Salyer and Cade Mays and five-star defensive end Brenton Cox.

For these reasons, CBS named Georgia its biggest winner of the Early Signing Period:

Kirby Smart entered the day with the No. 3 recruiting class in the country. He's going to finish the day with the No. 2 class in the country, but now he's less than two points away from the top spot, which means the Bulldogs are now formally in contention to land the No. 1 class by February. The day featured the commitments of the No. 1 offensive guard in Jamaree Salyer, the No. 2 offensive tackle in Cade Mays, the No. 2 strong-side defensive end in Brenton Cox and four-star cornerback Divaad Wilson, a former Florida pledge.

Smart certainly has things rolling at his alma mater. Georgia is doing all this damage on the recruiting trail and still has a shot at the national championship.

The Bulldogs will face Oklahoma in the Rose Bowl on Jan. 1 on ESPN.
