Dylan Raiola will be a Georgia Bulldog.

The 5-star quarterback from Phoenix (Az.) Pinnacle announced his commitment to Kirby Smart and the Bulldogs on his social media Monday. Raiola is the No. 1 overall recruit in the Class of 2024 and picked Georgia from a list of finalists that also included Nebraska, USC, and Oregon. Raiola was, at one time, committed to Ryan Day and Ohio State before backing off that months-long pledge last December.

From Nebraska’s perspective, it’s a crushing miss. Raiola is not only viewed as a can’t-miss prospect, but he’s also a Husker legacy. His father, Dominic, played at and starred at Nebraska. The elder Raiola was an All-American offensive lineman and a Rimington Trophy winner with the Huskers. He was a freshman on the 1997 national championship-winning team.

And the quarterback of that team, Scott Frost, hired Raiola’s younger brother to join the Husker coaching staff prior to the 2022 season. Donovan, the NU offensive line coach, was the only assistant retained by Matt Rhule when he took over the program last fall. NU hoped to lay the groundwork for a generational quarterback to follow in his father’s footsteps.

And the youngest Raiola gave Nebraska a long, hard look. He took a visit to Lincoln the weekend after a visit to Georgia’s campus.

Georgia won out.

The 6-foot-3, 220-pound quarterback is Georgia’s 12th known commit for the 2024 class. With Raiola in the fold, the Bulldogs hold a top-5 class in the country. Ohio State’s class ranks No. 2 nationally with 13 known commitments. Nebraska holds 6 verbal pledges and ranks No. 32.
