Thursday was a good day for Georgia coach Kirby Smart.

The head coach of the nation's third-ranked team made waves on the recruiting trail, landing a notable recruit while making a splashy appearance to see another blue-chipper.

Smart, whose Bulldogs are 7-0 this season, beat out a host of SEC rivals, including Alabama, to regain the services of ESPN 300 prospect Adam Anderson.

Anderson, the No. 57 overall recruit in the 2018 class and the seventh-ranked defensive end, was originally a Georgia commit last summer but flipped his commitment to LSU before reopening his recruitment this summer. Alabama, Clemson, Auburn and Tennessee were among his other finalists.
