Dylan Raiola turned heads this offseason when he de-committed from Ohio State, but one school appears to be the new favorite landing spot for the No. 1 overall player in the 2024 college football recruiting class.

247Sports director of recruiting Steve Wiltfong revealed his new Crystal Ball prediction for the five-star quarterback from Phoenix, with Georgia emerging as the favorite to sign the player ahead of next season.

Who's in the mix?

Raiola has been traveling around the country on several high-profile unofficial visits in recent weeks, including to Nebraska, Georgia, USC, Oregon, and others.

The quarterback's father, Dominic, was a Rimington Trophy award winner at Nebraska and his uncle is currently the offensive line coach with the Cornhuskers.

Raiola also met with USC head coach Lincoln Riley and current Trojans quarterback Caleb Williams when in Los Angeles recently.

But Georgia has reportedly earned Raiola's interest as the site of his first official visit after he spoke very highly about the program immediately after it won the national championship in January.

The other 247Sports recruiting analysts are split on Raiola's destination, picking between three contenders, among them USC, Nebraska, and Georgia.

Three analysts are picking the Cornhuskers, while two are on board with USC, and one is picking Georgia.

Dylan Raiola recruiting profile

The five-star quarterback passed for 3,241 yards with 32 touchdown passes and rushed for nine additional scores in 12 games as a sophomore.

Raiola hit over 64 percent of his throws for 2,435 yards with 22 touchdowns with five interceptions in his junior campaign.

All four major recruiting services — 247Sports, Rivals, ESPN, and On3 Sports — call Raiola the No. 1 quarterback in the 2024 cycle.

Three of the four named him the No. 1 overall prospect in the class, with On3 dissenting, calling Raiola the No. 6 overall player.
