2. CB Ellis Robinson IV (Georgia)

The third Georgia player on this list is the Dawgs highest rated recruit in the class in Robinson out of IMG Academy. Robinson ranks as the No. 3 player in the class, the No. 1 corner, and the No. 2 player from the state of Florida. Robinson is originally from New Haven, Connecticut, and started his prep career at Iona Prep in New York. He then transferred to IMG prior to his Junior season. He is a long corner with strong technique and good speed.

Robinson is the fourth highest rated signee in Georgia history, and one of the highest rated corner recruits ever. In fact, Robinson is the second highest rated corner in the last 20 recruiting classes (since 2005), trailing only Travis Hunter in 2022. He's the third highest rated corner recruit of the 247 era (since 2000).

1. DL Williams Nwaneri (Missouri)

Keeping Nwaneri home was a massive recruiting win for Missouri, arguably their biggest since landing Luther Burden in 2022. In fact, Nwaneri is Missouri's second highest rated recruit ever, coming in just ahead of Burden. The only player rated higher was Dorial Green-Beckham in 2012.

Nwaneri is the No. 1 defensive lineman and the No. 2 overall player in the class of 2024 out of Lees Summit North HS in Missouri. He comes in at 6'6, 260 and has the look to add weight too. He has the athleticism and versatility to play multiple positions along the defensive front. In 2023, Nwaneri had 50 tackles, 13 TFL, and 6 sacks. He had 13 sacks as a Junior in 2022. As Missouri continues to build their program following an 11-2 season and soon-to-be top-10 finish in 2023, landing players of Nwaneri's caliber will only help.
