Georgia Reportedly Mass Offers Scholarships To 18 Recruits At IMG Academy In Florida

IMG Academy in Bradenton, Fla. is likely the biggest powerhouse high school football program in the country. In the 2017 recruiting class alone, the school has 11 players in 247 Sports' Top 247. In the 2018 recruiting class, they have four. 

That means one high school is currently responsible for 3 percent of America's best 2017 and '18 high school football recruits - an insane statistic.

Georgia recognizes the extreme success of IMG's program. According to a report by Dawg Nation, Kirby Smart and his Bulldogs' staff mass-offered 18 players from IMG today. 

IMG Academy coach Kevin Wright got a text message this morning that shared UGA’s extreme interest in 18 of the 60 current players on his varsity team. UGA offered 18 of his guys in one fell swoop with a text.

There were seven players among those 18 who had previous offers from the program, but the list Wright got on Tuesday morning verified that 18 members of his team still held offers from UGA. Wright said UGA head coach Kirby Smart and defensive coordinator Mel Tucker led the charge behind all of those offers.

Georgia isn't the only college football program to understand the importance of being in good standing with IMG. Tennessee offered 20 players from the school in February. Michigan held its infamous spring break practices on the school's campus. 

You can expect more programs to start doing the same.
