    Kirby Smart may have found a new pipeline.

    About two weeks after 4-star running back and Philadelphia native D’Andre Swift chose the Bulldogs, Georgia finds itself with yet another pledge from Pennsylvania.

    Four-star prospect Mark Webb committed to UGA on Friday, becoming the 16th commit in Georgia’s 2017 recruiting class.

    Ranked as the No. 1 wide receiver in the state and the No. 48 wide receiver in the nation, the Warminster, Pennsylvania product picked Smart’s team over Alabama, Maryland, North Carolina, Penn State and Temple, who rounded out Webb’s top six schools.

    Webb named UGA as his leader this summer, and was virtually a lock after Swift announced his commitment. The two playmakers are close and have wanted to play together in college for some time now.

    At 6-foot-2, 204 lbs Webb has excellent body control and finds the ball quickly. He’s shifty in traffic and can accelerate through the hole easily, making him a deadly yard-after-the-catch option.

    He’s also a solid run blocker, which will come in handy when Swift gets handed the rock.

    The pledge from Webb gave Georgia 172 recruiting points and put it ahead of LSU at No. 4 in the 2017 recruiting rankings.
