Latest Georgia Bulldogs News: Just In Georgia Bulldogs Confirm The Committment Of Another Top Talented Star

4-star OL Mason Short chooses Georgia over Ohio State and Clemson.
A valuable offensive lineman was added by the Bulldogs in the 2025 class.
It’s finally over for Mason Short’s three-month ordeal, which is good news in Athens.

At a press conference on Friday morning, the Evans, Georgia, 4-star offensive lineman declared his commitment to Georgia over offers from Clemson, Ohio State, and Kentucky. The team that gave Georgia the most heroic effort in this recruiting was Clemson.

Short visited Georgia last week for an impromptu midweek visit and informed the Georgia coaches of his plans.

“I keep thinking about the family-related issues. Short told Dawgs247, “They’ve been talking to me since my freshman year, when I was 15 years old and couldn’t even drive yet. “Knowing I’ve always been at the top of their board and there’s never been a let-off or anything of the sort, that relentless pursuit.” Coach Kirby [Smart] and Coach [Stacy] Searels, the way I saw how he saw his players, and how his players respected them.”


Short was still committed to Alabama three months ago. He had been a member of the Crimson Tide’s class for almost two years, and he had no intention of changing, no matter how hard Georgia tried. Then Nick Saban announced his retirement, completely changing Short’s plans.

Georgia head coach Kirby Smart landed his chopper on the Evans football field the day he decommitted from Alabama. He was in town to meet with Short—and, maybe more significantly, with a number of Short’s relatives.

That’s when Short began to think that Georgia would be the greatest place for him.

“I asked Kirby to do it when he came to my high school, but he shook my hand and ignored me to go see my mother. “It should be that way,” Short remarked. “He visited my granny, who is in my close group. That’s the person he desired to be with, and that’s the proper arrangement. Everyone has to be met, and they are all Kirby’s fans.”

It goes without saying that his choice was influenced by the in-state pull factor.

An hour and a half is needed. You were born in Georgia. “Why not visit Georgia?” said in brief. Naturally, that story has been forced into my thoughts on a daily basis. It’s only Georgia. They’ve had a past. They’ve got a scheme going. They have athletes and coaches.”

In Georgia’s 2025 recruiting class, Short joins Ethan Barbour, Elyiss Williams, Bo Walker, Jadon Perlotte, and Stephon Shivers as the sixth pledge. After a six-person class last year, he is the first offensive lineman to join Stacy Searels’ group.

According to the 247Sports composite, the 6-foot-5, 320-pound offensive lineman is the eighth-best interior offensive lineman in the country. In the rankings, he is ranked 179th overall in the country. Georgia jumps to No. 13 in the Class of 2025 team rankings with Short’s commitment.
