Oh Snap! From SoFl_Dawg: Ladies and gents, this will be the highest rated UGA class in history. This will likely be the highest rated class in history, period. It is time to stop panicking and st

I’m hearing Ringo actually might pop within a week, maybe even the same day as Milton. I’m also hearing the same thing about this being an epic weekend. I wish I knew more because I’m going to be on p

Got it confirmed, though you already know. Milton has already committed to the staff.

I don't see it at least not so far not based on what we know 

Big difference between wanting local teams to be considered and telling your son they have to stay state 

I don't know how this gets covered or talked about on 247. I haven't seen it mentioned much on Rivals, but there is immense pressure on Evans to stay instate. Like Alabama levels of pressure to stay instate. He also has spent a lot of time in Austin and has a lot of established connections to UT and A&M.

It's going to be tough to pull him out of there. I mean, if any staff can do it then I think the safest bet would be our staff at UGA... but being 100% real, there is a lot of pressure on him to stay instate and he likes both programs a lot anyway.

Of course

Same situation as Raym

I just haven't seen evidence that his parents have told him that he has to stay in state

Honestly, it might be best for UGA if we don't take an out of state kid that is a top RB this cycle -- outside of Milton of course. We all heard the rumblings from Cook last year being a little dissatisfied with his low amount of touches. Same thing will probably happen to whoever the 2nd RB is in this next cycle too; and it would make it much more palatable to the player and less likely to enter the transfer portal if they are a Georgia kid -- a.k.a. Tank Bigsby. 

For the 2020 season Swift is very likely gone, Herrien is definitely gone. But we return hopefully a healthy and beastmode Zeus to be the primary RB; Cook for his JR season hopefully with some added weight as the #2 RB; Kenny Mac who will be in his 2nd season and looking to get some touches, or else; and then Milton who will most definitely be looking for touches. We saw how few touches Herrien got as the 4th RB last year, now imagine how many touches the 5th RB is going to get in that scenario. 

Whoever we recruit as the 2nd RB is most likely going to be battling Kenny McIntosh to be the 4th RB on the depth chart for that season. Unless the coaching staff feels Zeus is just not going to be close to a top 2 RB for us after his injuries, and there is nothing to suggest that at this time, then I just don't see the allure for another top RB to want join this team (considering playing time). 

Yeah, injuries happen and we have to be prepared. And obviously we want to take the best players we can at every position. All I'm saying is it's very likely that 2nd RB isn't going to get many, if any, touches his freshman season; might be a good idea to make it a local kid that would be less likely to transfer -- as long as he's graded in the same ballpark as the other top RB's. And it seems Tank is close enough to Evans, Cheney, and Lloyd that I can see why UGA might just take his commitment and call it a day.  

 

EDIT: While writing this I just contemplated for the first time the size of the RB's we are going to be rolling out in 2020. 

Zeus at 230 lbs at least

Milton at 230 +

And Kenny McIntosh at 225 at least. 

And then they are going to be running behind the Great Wall of Georgia and all that beef up front. 

Whew! We are going to wear some defenses out and make them cry "uncle!" :lol:

yep.. his family wants him to stay close to home instate if at all possible.  they want him to reconsider the instate schools which is what he is doing.. there is a ton of pressure from family, friends, and the area to stay in Texas.. i think in the end Evans stays home.  UGA is going to get tank/milton imo and we will then be done.

The thing with Evans is, in the end, this really doesn't change much, if anything. I mean, OU and OSU were always hats on a table in his recruitment, and reports were always that it was a 3 way battle out of state with us, Alabama, and LSU, and the in state schools were always going to have access because of proximity.

The reality is this changes nothing in his recruitment.

Day 2 top performers:

 

7. Noah Sewell

This was a talented linebacker group with disruptive plays coming from guys like Cody Simon, Curtis Jacobs, Derek Wingo, Phillip Webb and even two interceptions out of Wesley Steiner but it was Sewell that was the most eye-opening. Maybe that’s because it doesn’t seem fair that a 266-pound linebacker can chase down running backs in space or that at that size, he has the spacial awareness of a nickel defender. He just continues to shed the stigma attached to a jumbo mike linebacker to prove that he really is that rare. 

8. Tank Bigsby

The Hogansville (Ga.) Callaway running back rushed for 2,221 yards during the fall with about a third of those coming in the state playoffs, so we know what he brings in that department. Here in Frisco, the 5-foot-11 1/2, 206-pound Bigsby is showing not only is he an every-down back but a dangerous player in the passing game. His four touchdown receptions are tied for the tournament lead with two others; on one score he caught and weaved his way about 20 yards to pay dirt. He got another score working the middle of the field. His 11 receptions are good for seventh at this point. Bigsby is considering Georgia, South Carolina, Tennessee, LSU and Auburn among others. - Steve Wiltfong

That was always going to be a hard pull. We'll still get an official which will be the deciding factor.

Getting west coast kids on campus is really hard to begin with, even with kids like Milton and Flowe who made clear they're interested in leaving the west.

Sewell had interest, ie, he visited, but he never really made clear that he wanted to leave the west; had to convince him to, and that's always a hard task. They need to want to leave from the get go usually.
