The announcement comes after an intense offseason competition, in which Beck showcased his arm talent and poise, and now he will be leading the Bulldogs on the field.

The weight of expectations will undoubtedly rest on his shoulders. Luckily for him, he has one of the most talented rosters in all of college football to help take some pressure off.
Coach Kirby Smart’s decision to anoint Carson Beck as the starting quarterback is a testament to his work ethic and growth. As the Bulldogs take the field for what promises to be an exciting and competitive season, all eyes will be on Beck as he starts his journey as the leader of Georgia’s offense. With his talent, Carson Beck has the opportunity to become the next Stetson Bennett IV for the Bulldogs. Beck is eligible for the 2024 NFL draft following this season.
