  1. What a catch.
  2. Or not and end up in the portal. I'm sure this is something they are considering, when it comes to Gilbert's recruitment as a wr.
  3. Wiltfong has UGA running 3rd for Gilbert. Has Bama and Tennessee in the lead.
  4. Evan's CB to UGA, from Rusty, is in!
  5. She is horrible. I think I'd rather listen to Fran Drescher call the game.
  6. I thought it was Daijun Edwards that we were keeping warm?
  7. Interesting.
  8. Gilbert is only going to add more weight once he gets to college. He could be a solid te, a stud de, or a serviceable wr. I would have no problem with him as a te, that occasionally flexed out, but either way, he has to be able to block. Additionally, if wr is the position he wants to play, and is being sold on that to get him on campus, the portal very well could be in his future, because I see no way that he sticks at the wr position in college.
  9. Rusty said that Oliver ran a 4.5, on 2 different occasions for the staff.
  10. Looks like we got a 2021 commit, safety Brayln Oliver.
  11. If the NCAA is going to be poking around a school right now, it's gonna be Clemson.
  12. Evans cb's are pouring in.
  13. If we get Washington and Johnson/Large/Carr, I'll be fine with it. I would rather take Gilbert on defense and add the other 2 as te's. I wouldn't want to waste a spot on someone who is thinking they are going to be a wr in college. Portal candidate waiting to happen.
  14. From SoFl Dawg: “Hey guys-as we get ready to start the season, just wanted to get caught up on what seems to be happening. Insert cliche, recruiting is fluid, so expect some changes. Jordan Burch-#1 remaining target. We’re in good spot. 3 team race UGA, carolina schools. Our pitch has been to use him as a DL/OLB which he likes, 5T-W9 depending on situation. The camp doesn’t talk much but we believe his mother really loves USC and UGA “now”. Burch really loved CU and now strongly likes UGA. CU dropped the ball in their pursuit of M. Murphy, and there was a misunderstanding between Dabo and Burch’s mom regarding where to play his final year of HS. With USC headed in wrong direction, common denominator is UGA. Mom loves us and is building rapport with other Dawg parents, Burch can now see himself there. The compromise pick is UGA. Not expecting announcement until Dec. Zachary Evans-this has been up and down since March, the first time I heard he was a silent. Evans and Milton have been the primary targets for well over a year. About two weeks ago, I was told Evans is jaded with the process, would commit before start of the season, and would shut it down. This impacted the Tank Bigsby news who was in the works of shooting a commitment vid to UGA before pulling the plug there. Regardless of landing Evans, Tank is not likely to come to UGA at this time; ship sailed. Evans has embraced load management and post football resources. He will be a Dawg and we feel strongly about that. Kelee Ringo-lets keep this one short. Dawg. Darnell Washington-lets keep this on me short. Dawg. He continues to work on Theo Johnson but with the dead period, I don’t have an update on how Theo feels about UGA currently. Likely will make a decision after OVs but really watch MI here. Elias Ricks-relatively new for us. I was told not to expect him to remain a Tiger. There has been a lot happening behind the scenes and we feel he is 70% UGA lean. That’s not enough to project him as silent or Dawg but we need to stay the course and should win out. Dell, Kendall Milton, IMG, and the “group chat” have all been chipping away here. Once he’s on campus we’ll update but we’re confident here. Noah Sewell- we’ll keep this short. Dawg. Arguably has been prioritized the second most behind Burch. Arik Gilbert-no longer expect him to choose UGA. We’ve been in his ear for so long that maybe usage of TEs can sway him but he doesn’t want to play TE with hand in dirt. I don’t know if this is something our staff is really entertaining. I do know that staff has had its fill already of me first guys and Gilbert is coming in with a lot of demands: targets, positions, route, etc. I’d watch him to go west of GA for now, UT or Bama. Arian Smith-one of my faves in this class because of raw potential. We feel he’s a Dawg. We think he could be an odd man out due to #’s. I’ve been told no WR will be processed so it’ll be 4. This is one we’re watching as class solidifies. I do think he’s first in as BPA because of upside. That’s speculation, I haven’t heard that specifically. Zykevious Walker- this one has had twists and turns. All UGA, going to commit around Gday, then drops top 5 instead. Staff’s frequency of touch points decreased and I heard fu and au in a 3-4 month span. Now I’m hearing all UGA again. CSF & CTS believe he’s a 5T edge and will grow into that. I’ve heard he’s ~280 now. He and Burch are both said to be takes. We need to see 1-2 decommits to make this work. I think he’s #2 as BPA behind A. Smith but because of need and being home grown, he may get the nod. Gervon Dexter- this is the Kirby flip special this year. I’ve been asked to keep some things close on this one. This one will feel like George Pickens from last year. He and Jalen Carter are close (this is very important). He’s also close with Milton. Coach Fountain may be the MVP this cycle; definitely gets most improved. These are the names I’m following most closely during the season. There may be some risers and fallers but I feel this will be our final additions. Assume 16 current commits. I do think a blue shirt will be offered and accepted. Someone will be the odd man out here as BPA. Tough decisions.
  15. From 247: Big day from Herrien and McIntosh. Zeus had another good day pounding it between the tackles. Could be this year's version of Holyfield. Good day from Drob at slot. Clear #1 with Jackson and Blaylock fighting for the #2 spot. Simmons has locked up PR duty. Good day from Adam Anderson and is said to be playing a similar role to Leonard Floyd.
  16. I expect he will play a bunch.
  17. Yeah, I'd like to see him all over the field.
  18. I highly doubt we go to the portal for a rb
  19. Yes
  20. I could see: Swift - 35% Zeus - 20% Herrien - 25% Cook - 20%
  21. More from Dawgnation: Defensive line: Travon comin’ Georgia has a lot of upperclassmen on the defensive line. But it has been freshman Travon Walker who has created a ton of buzz this fall. Walker is the only 5-star prospect in the group and his athleticism is a big reason why he’s been able to stand out so far. The freshman still has a number of quality players to try and surpass on the depth chart, but if Walker lives up to his teammates’ reviews, it will be hard for Smart and defensive coordinator Dan Lanning to keep him off the field this fall. Inside linebacker: Three-man unit Nakobe Dean was the talk of practice during the first week. And his impressive start has made a top-two of Monty Rice and Tae Crowder into a three-man group. And Smart made it clear that those three players have all distanced themselves from the rest of the inside linebackers. “You want to have this continuity of two or three guys who are ready to go out there and play,” Smart said. “We don’t have much separation right now, especially among our top three. I thought last year we were able to spell and keep guys fresh by playing three.” Defensive backs: Havoc is coming For a long time, Smart has been bullish on the Georgia secondary. J.R. Reed, Richard LeCounte, Eric Stokes and Tyson Campbell have all played significant snaps and still have room to improve. All three newcomers in the secondary — Lewis Cine, Tyrique Stevenson and D.J. Daniel — have impressed early on as well. Reed spoke with reporters on Thursday night and provided a further glimpse into how the secondary performed during the first scrimmage. “The interceptions of the last scrimmage and the turnovers of this last scrimmage, we’ve never had that in the last two years, so that’s a big jump,” Reed said. If the secondary is able to create those havoc plays Smart loves to talk about, this could easily be the best defense Georgia has had in a long time. Outside linebacker: Depth is still really good after Cox Smart isn’t at all concerned about the depth of the outside linebacker room after the departure of Brenton Cox. In the past week, Cox enrolled at Florida. While the Gators are hoping for him to be eligible this season, the odds of that happening aren’t all that good. Back to Georgia’s outside linebacker room, Azeez Ojulari, Nolan Smith, Jermaine Johnson and Walter Grant have all continued to alleviate any concerns about the loss of a former 5-star prospect. But a bigger reason why the Cox defection might not be so big is that Georgia may not play a ton of outside linebackers this year. “We have one of them on the field on most snaps,” Smart said. “If we have one of them on the field and there’s six of them, I wish we were that deep at every position. We don’t. Sometimes we get two of them in regular but not a lot of people play regular anymore.”
  22. Absolutely.
  23. Reed on Zamir White: White, the No. 1-ranked tailback in the 2018 class, has shown he’s ready to run with authority in fall camp, and Reed has felt that as much as seen it. “I’ve been able to fill the hole on Zamir a lot of times, really big psychical running back ,I feel sorry for the guys that have to go against him,” Reed said. “He reminds me of (Nick) Chubb, especially running the ball, how physical he is and downhill, and that’s the biggest thing that comes to my mind.” Reed said White’s offseason workouts were so impressive, he felt confident he would make a healthy return even before his first full contact in fall drills. “Once you see a guy work out like that in the summer and see that he’s ready to go, that’s when you know he’s back,” Reed said. “Once he’s comfortable doing the drills, and once you see he’s comfortable cutting off that foot, that’s when you know he’s back.”
  24. J.R. Reed on James Cook: ATHENS — The Georgia football running back stable is stacked with talent, and no one knows that better than veteran first-team All-SEC safety J.R. Reed. Projected started D’Andre Swift has been talked about among Heisman Trophy contenders provided he can stay healthy, and redshirt freshman Zamir White is making headlines with his comeback from last year’s torn ACL. But sophomore James Cook looks to be someone to keep an eye on, too, Reed suggested following Thursday’s practice. “Cook is just a lot, he’s just so fast, man, he’s so fast, he’s hard to touch,” Reed said. “He has really good balance, it’s hard to get him out of bounds, he’ll cut those corners and there will be an inch on the sideline, and he’ll tightrope it all the way down it to the end zone. “You have to be really, really tight on your angles with Cook, because he’ll either cut it back or he’ll turn it up on you, so you have to be smart and track that hip.”
  25. From Dawgnation: The eyeball test: Redshirt freshman Zamir White looked every bit as explosive and physically imposing in Thursday’s workout as Kirby Smart said he was in Saturday’s practice. Matt Landers holding on: Redshirt sophomore receiver Matt Landers appears to be holding on to the No. 1 spot at the outside wideout position opposite senior Tyler Simmons. Landers has been locked in competition with Miami grad-transfer Lawrence Cager, the two splitting repetitions with the ones throughout fall camp. Freshman George Pickens, who wowed spectators at the scrimmage with his one-handed catch, was back running No. 3 at wide receiver behind Trey Blount and Landers. Cager is lining up on Simmons side. Demetris Robertson continues to be the No. 1 slot, with Kearis Jackson and Dominick Blaylock behind him.
