Manuel wont have the grades from what I'm hearing. Xzavier is going to Clemson more than likey. Arian Smith has crazy speed. I like Rosemy more. But Xzavier Henderson is a stud. But Manuel isnt comparable to any of those players especially Marcus Rosemy. 

manuel is going to juco.. i know it's early to say that, but he has pretty much no chance to qualify.  if he does qualify a lot will have to chance with him.. he has other issues as well, but that is the primary problem.. I love Rosemy.  adding him to justin robinson and cowen or henning would be a nice haul at wr..

there were rumors dexter was considering decommitting, but he backed off that.  i am hoping we can flip him.. i really like cowan a lot, but would take dexter easy over him. 

If the rumors are accurate regarding both Stackhouse (playing the recruiting game too much to the point of losing his spot) and Burroughs (greatest comeback of all time required to qualify), would Dexter really be an either/or with Cowan? It feels like we need a minimum of 4 DL... if we don't have a good read on Burch, I'd really like to see some quality additions start to make it onto the list?

But you know UF will accept his commitment because it will boost their rankings lol

Wait a minute, Jamil Burroughs isn’t gonna qualify?

That would take us down to just Carter & Brinson as commits and no other targets much above 50% chance at this time, right?

Defensive Line recruiting - arggh!

Dexter has more in common wi.th Cowan as a player than he does Stackhouse

We seem (to me) to be looking for a NT, 2 DTs, a SDE type, and a stand up edge rusher

We're clearly pushing for Burch to be that stand up edge rusher, as that's what he's said we're pitching him, since he also doesn't want to play 3-4 DE either.

Dexter, Cowan, and Jay Hardy are similar types, despite what they may each be classified as on recruiting sites. I really think we'd already have Cowan committed and maybe even Jay Hardy if it weren't for our confidence in flipping Dexter.

Going by those numbers, Stackhouse has already lost his spot. He lost it when Brinson committed. Brinson is our 2nd DT, and Stackhouse will have to decommit to make room for our SDE type, but the staff doesn't really have to push him out since the Dexter recruitment will take some time still.

As for Burroughs, that's more of a 1v1 switch, but similar to Dexter, his "replacement" in Smith is still and "in proccess" recruitment, but for sure at some point this season, the coaches will have to have a heart to heart with him about his academics, and his future with UGA.

Where are you getting that number? I assure you the staff is far more confident in our remaining targets than that

I have zero doubt we will meet our quota for the position - I have faith in the staff.   I don’t have to tell you the interior DLine has been the biggest challenge the last 4yr cycle.

By the time this recruiting scuttlebutt gets back to us, Kirby and Staff are onto the next targets - so, of course your point above is correct.

Guess I am just blowing off steam out loud.   Sorry.

While an alumnus and almost life long fan, I don't have any sources and don't subscribe to the pay sites, do dependent on guys like you, Sac, Bdawg, RandomFan and others that have access to more information.

As for Joseph, (as long as he's going to qualify of course) he presents a very interesting option for our staff this cycle.

If you recall that post I made about teams and the "25" rule, teams could "get away" with playing with it to some degree, and this could be one of those ways.

Since Joseph was originally part of one of our classes, he would not count toward this cycle's 25, meaning that, as long as we had room for him in the 85, we would be able to take him as a sort of "extra man"

Basically we could take as many players as we think the NCAA will let us get away with in this class, be it 23, 24, or 25, and then also take Joseph, without it counting against us for the 25 rule.

This way we could take 3 DBs (2 CBs and a S) instead of 4, use that extra spot for a player at another position, and still take Joseph to fill that 2nd safety spot.

Joseph becomes the 26th recruit

From all reports, the player who is most accurately represented by that number would be Burch. The kid is like Gilbert, and by all reports, just doesn't talk basically at all, making him really difficult to get a read on.

As for the other targets, we could probably take Cowan now if we wanted him, but the staff wants more time to land Dexter, confidence seems to be high on landing Timothy Smith.

If we land Smith and Dexter, no one will (should) be complaining about losing Stackhouse and Burroughs. Dexter is a far better player than Stackhouse (though their positions aren't exactly the same), and Timothy Smith is a monster. I'd take him a thousand times over Burroughs as a prospect.

The one here that I find most interesting was the staff's seeming choice of Brinson over Stackhouse. Now, I understand that Stackhouse is looking around, and Brinson is willing to shut it down, but I still don't think the staff would make this kind of move, if they weren't confident that Brinson was at least on the same level, talent wise, as Stackhouse.

I'll be very interested to see how their senior seasons go, and where each of their final rankings end up.

Word is Tank got kicked out of Callaway for fighting. If true he might face some problems with credits. Hopefully it's just a rumor though

i have seen that rumor on boards, but haven't seen anyone who could substantiate it..  i doubt he would be on campus at UGA if that truly was the case (or we were comfortable with the situation being resolved and have assurances of it).. the same goes for him visiting as much as he has this summer.  UGA has passed on guys for less.

The sound of Gators pooping their collective pants if this happens will be deafening... Pretty sure they've put their eggs in those baskets pretty hard. It really would be an epic conclusion to the trolling of Dan Mullen.

It's strange to think that we started with 2 DTs from GA, and we could possibly end with 4 from FL

David is really good with his info, but riddle me this...if we aren't getting Flowe, Sewell, Simpson, or Whitehead at ILB, then who are we gonna get?

I have no clue who David is, but was wondering the same.  

Additionally, if we were in fact slow playing Simpson and had to settle for Whitehead, I would be less than happy with that outcome.

FWIW, I know DW pretty well personally, and while yes he's usually very plugged in, he's a little more distracted this recruiting season than most. Wouldn't read too much into that other than he hasn't been talking to quite as many people as he usually does, or at least they haven't had as much info to share.

Others are feeling pretty good about Sewell as of recently. Whitehead is supposedly plan B and more recently SoFl dawg's comments about retracting the previous idea that Simpson flat out told us no, and instead was being slow played should indicate that the staff feels pretty darn strong about whoever they want for that spot.

great question, but the staff might use that one ilb spot for another position.  we are going to take 1 ilb spot and 1  to 2 olb spot IMO if both sewell and flowe (olb) want to join sherman.  regarding simpson i don't think he wants to compete with who we have on campus and it was clear to him he was not our top choice and we recruited him as such.  we have a lot of young lbs and we might not take whitehead depending on who else wants to jump on board.. we are taking 6 olinemen if the right 6 want to join.. you don't turn down svp or raym and will take both..  i really think svp is our future center after hill.  it's all about numbers.. i disagree with rusty i think we take closer to 25 (26 since joseph is a backcounter).  right now i think we take 6 olinemen, 5 or 6 dlinemen, 2 rbs, 2 tes, 1 qbs, 3 wrs, 1 kicker, sherman at lb, 4-5 dbs (1 being joseph), flowe or sewell or both.. it will be interesting to see where we move numbers around based on who wants to jump onboard.
