When assembling the 2023 recruiting class, wide receiver was a priority for the Georgia Bulldogs. The Bulldogs have landed a receiver at this point, and the Bulldogs are following another who is ready to announce his decision.
JUCO wide receiver Malik Benson wrote on social media Monday that he would announce his signing Tuesday at 2 p.m. ET. The 6-foot-1, 185-pound Benson announced back in mid-June that he would sign on July 5.
Tune in tomorrow at 1pm CT for the DECISION??

Benson, the No. 1 junior college in the country ended his official visit to Georgia on June 20.
“The visit went great!” Benson told Dawgs247 about his June visit. “What struck me about Georgia is just being with the players and talking to them. I was mostly there Kelee Ringo. He said there is a great culture there and that I will become a better person and a better footballer.”
Ranked #1 among junior colleges in the nation according to the 247Sports Composite JUCO rankings, Benson will choose between Alabama, Georgia, LSU, Oregon and Tennessee. The wideout caught 43 passes for 1,229 yards and 11 touchdowns as a junior college-level freshman. Georgia wide receivers Bryan McClendon Benson visited twice during the evaluation period, and a look at his highlight in his freshman year makes it clear why.
Georgia is looking to Benson as the Bulldogs’ second wide receiver engagement in the class of 2023. Four-star prospect Raymond Cottrell Signed to the Bulldogs last November.
