Although college football fans are fired up for Week 1 to arrive later this month, recruiting is a monster that operates year-round. And once again, things are hot for the Georgia Bulldogs.

While the focus may be on the 2020 class, offers are already flying out for prospects from 2021 and beyond. Speaking of '21, 4-star defensive tackle Leonard Taylor is among the top d-line prospects out there and has three programs standing out.

This includes the Bulldogs.

In an interview with 247Sports' insider Luke Stampini, Taylor said he's got an early Top 3 of Florida, Miami and Georgia. Checking in at 6-4, 255 pounds, Taylor is an absolute force in the trenches. Keep in mind, he's getting ready for his junior campaign of high school and will only get bigger/stronger.

Throughout his recruitment thus far, he's picked up offers from UGA, Miami, Florida, Alabama, Auburn, LSU, Ohio State, Tennessee and many others.

While there's still plenty of time before Taylor signs his National Letter of Intent, it's clear he's got teams standing out above the rest. Will the Bulldogs end up landing his commitment? We'll have to wait and see.
