If you’ve been following social media, you’ve probably seen Georgia coaches crisscrossing the country visiting some of the nation’s top prospects across a variety of recruiting classes.

This shouldn’t come as a surprise given how much head coach Kirby Smart stresses the importance of recruiting. January is a contact period per the NCAA’s recruiting calendar, which allows coaches to have face-to-face contact with prospects off-campus grounds.

Dan Lanning is now the head coach at Oregon, leaving his position as defensive coordinator and outside linebackers coach. Cortez Hankton meanwhile joined LSU’s coaching staff, creating an opening at the wide receivers coach position.
