Xavian Sorey has become one of the best players in the 2021 recruiting class. At 6-foot-3 and 214 pounds, the linebacker is an imposing force on the field and has excelled for both Graceville High School and IMG Academy.
Xavian Sorey Commits to the University of Georgia
The Bulldogs had some competition in their quest to sign Sorey. Programs like Alabama, Auburn, Clemson, Florida, Florida State, Kentucky, LSU, and Miami reached out as well.
Before the early signing period, the Dawgs had no trouble luring talent to Athens, and Sorey only makes the team better. Together, Sorey and fellow signee Smael Mondon will punish opposing offenses for years to come as part of a fearsome linebacking corps.

OLB Xavian Sorey Jr. Highlights
Sorey has proven that he is an explosive athlete on both sides of the ball. In addition to his duties as an outside linebacker, Sorey was also called upon as a running back frequently.
If things go well, he will definitely be taken in the NFL Draft. UGA is banking on Sorey's potential, as they have to compete with the other powerhouses in the SEC yearly.
