The Buford High School football program has landed perhaps its best player to date with the transfer of five star quarterback Dylan Raiola. Raiola is transferring to Buford from Arizona to play his senior year.

The No. 1 prospect in the nation for the Class of 2024 according to rivals.com is moving to Georgia to be able to play a full year of football during his senior year. Raiola was facing a potential five-game suspension in Arizona due to AIA intrastate transfer rules. He had moved from Chandler High School to Pinnacle High School earlier this year and he applied for a hardship to be able to play immediately. The decision for his appeal would not be made until August 15 which was cutting it too closely with the start of football season.

With that in mind, the Raiola family began to look at options. Georgia has a higher level of competition which appeals to the family and it is where the six-foot-three, 220-pound rising senior will play college football. Raiola has committed to play for the University of Georgia football program after high school.

As a junior at Chandler High School, Raiola completed 178 of 278 pass attempts (64%) for 2,435 yards with 22 touchdowns and 5 interceptions thrown.

Raiola will take the field at Tom Riden Stadium as a Buford Wolf on August 18 when the Wolves host St. Frances Academy from Baltimore, MD.
