Gunner Stockton (6-1, 220) committed to the Bulldogs over offers from most of the top schools, including Alabama, Arkansas, Auburn, Army, Florida, LSU, North Carolina, Ohio State, Oregon, Penn State, USC, and others.
“I have visited Georgia a few times and I like the feel in Athens,” Stockton told Rivals.com. “I like coach Smart a lot, I like the team, and it is hard not to like Georgia with it being a school in my home state. Most everyone I know is crazy about Georgia. Here in Rabun County for the last four years, we all pulled for Charlie Woerner. Charlie took me to a Georgia game when I was in sixth grade, and I know he loves Georgia and had a great experience.”
In the 247Sports Composite, Stockton is rated as a five-star recruit, the No. 1 dual-threat quarterback, and the No. 27 overall recruit in the country for 2022.
Rivals.com rates Stockton as a four-star recruit, the No. 2 pro-style quarterback, and the No. 30 overall 2022 recruit.
With the addition of Gunner Stockton, the Georgia Bulldogs now have seven commitments for the class of 2022. UGA’s class remains ranked 3rd in the 247Sports Team Rankings behind Ohio State and Penn State.
