June 2019 Recruiting Thread

I was wondering more based on the fact that we were recruiting, or at least staying in contact with and working out Whitehead.  Hopefully we can land 1 of Sewell, or Flowe.  If not, I sure would love to go hard after Simpson and then Tisdol.

Seems like we've almost shifted to Sewell or bust... I haven't heard much about Flowe in a long time from anyone with connection to UGA. Alabama still trying to target him, but seems like he's pretty heavy Clemson lean right now?

If we land Sewell, I won't regret that approach one bit. If we miss, I certainly hope we've been working stronger options than Whitehead in the background.

What a time to be a Dawg.

Don't think this ish isn't intentional either. UF had a big decommitment tonight followed shortly by Braun publicly committing. That sound you heard was Kirby's nutsack smacking Dan in the face.

Mullen kicked the hornets nest, and now he's paying the price. Serves him and them right.

Agree 100%.

I just worry about Sewell being to big to play ILB.   He’s already 270.  Is he going to be able to go sideline to sideline vs spread teams.

I think I read where he would most likely drop a little weight and play in 250-255 range.  His football instincts trump any speed concerns.

Did we not look at Steiner?  Seems like a Dean clone, based off size and athleticism. 

Just look at his build. Where would you play him?

Every possible choice has serious issues and better players available that those positions.

He just has an awkward build for a prospect. He's a man without a position, at least for us.

There isn't much to hear because we haven't had much contact. He isn't at the opening either. 

We'll know more when he visits again (I think in July)

I don't know about that.

His size definitely worries me. Right now, I could see him growing out of the position, but I'll leave that evaluation up to the staff.

He ran a 4.79 at 266 lbs.  That time will certainly improve if he drops some weight.  Nakobe Dean ran a 4.74 at 216 pounds.

4.75

But his strength isn't in straight line speed, even though its great for a man his size. What is impressive about him is his agility and explosion. The picture I posted last night of his results show he finished in the 99th percentile in the 3 cone drill. 

Make no mistake, Sewell is an athletic freak and if he plays around 250 will easily be under 4.7 and possibly even under 4.6 with some proper training. 

Just reading some reports from the opening this morning, there was considerable buzz from most in attendance about a guy his size being able to move the way he does.

I just have concerns about him being able to get under and stay at that weight

At this point, I would argue that Scott Sinclair and Co can walk on water when it comes to getting guys to good/healthy weights (see: Davis, Jordan; Kindley, Solomon; etc) ... I have very little concern that they could get Sewell playing at a healthy and productive weight in Athens. 250 might not be reasonable, but staying under 260 should be a pretty easy job.

Ah.... the popular topic on Tank Bigsby. I've been told by one source that he had a low time of 4.46 seconds at the combine testing.

I'd like to pair up a few more sources to get a good read on that one. That's a pretty big number for where he might stand with a lot of schools.

If that 4.46 is legit or even within a tenth of a second at 4.56.....welll.....

According to Evans instagram he has removed OSU and OU from his top 5 and replaced them with Texas and a&m

He visited both recently and reports were that his parents weren't very happy with his first top 5 and want him to at least consider in state schools til the end

Shocker. Just like we all called from the beginning.
