This weekend is going to be crazy from a recruiting standpoint.. big time prospects and a few surprises should be expected as who will show, possibly Travis Hunter 👀

this class really picking up momentum.  Radi and Smallwood were saying Dawgs could take between 26-30 in this class - which seems insanely high.    Sounds like they are expecting some higher than previous year attrition in transfer portal as well.

You have to remember the NCAA is allowing teams to replace up to 7 players. Between transfers and players leaving early we will have enough spots. The biggest question is how many spots we leave for possible incoming transfers to fill the gap for next season.

I'd imagine this year, 28-29 HS recruits is very possible, leaving space for up to 3 transfers. Also, SoFl has mentioned that we almost inevitably will have 1-2 forward counters into the *following* year's class as well (presumably blueshirts and other mechanisms).

More outlets reporting he will be in town again. Hope that it doesn't cause any issues with Singletary. Need to lock him down IMO. Hunter could be the cherry on top of this recruiting class, but shouldn't let his recruitment derail any of the main ingredients.

Absolutely agree with this. I’ve heard that there’s 2-3 commits willing to take a blueshirt to help with numbers which is huge.

Recruiting will be easier with all the media coverage we are getting this year. If the team keeps playing their game, we should have a huge year with top tier talent. Simply put, coaches won’t have to sale the University nearly as much.

Update from SoFl Dawg after the big recruiting weekend:

Let’s skip the apps and dive right into the entrees…

OVs for 5 Star WR Luther Burden and 5 Star DL Mykel Williams took place this weekend. We believed prior to arrival that we’d sign both players and we’ve only heard chatter that would strengthen our feelings with both following this OV. Lil major has already made an appearance, and we stand by that prediction. Major wins there.

5 Star Athlete and top overall player Travis Hunter returned for the second time in 3 weeks. However, the “we gettin errrrbody” doesn’t apply here. The momentum is with UGA. There’s more to the relationship than just checking out football games as Hunter mentioned this week, but a flip is not imminent. Hunter has developed a solid relationship with Kirby, Boom, and Ron Courson, but for now, still expect Hunter to ink with FSU. Hunter hit it off with several commits and targets, specifically Morrissette. The car is in drive though, still on surface streets, specifically a school zone; but slow motion is better than no motion when it comes to Hunter. Manage your expectations accordingly.

Conversely, we’ve been in 5th gear for a while with 5 Star CB Jaheim Singletary. Use the paddle shifters and put it into 6th gear. UGA will sign Singletary and that’s a huge win. Arguably the most pure CB in the Kirby era. Looking forward to seeing him in the red and black. Major WIN.

Current 4 Star, fu LB commit, Shemar James is not likely to be an fu commit for much longer. Coach Schu and Boom have done a great job with James, leveraging the success UGA has had recently at ILB. They like his ability to pass rush and turn and run. He will be back for an OV against Mizzou. Should we land James, it doesn’t impact Jalon Walker or CJ Washington. Walker is going to get a look at OLB first, with the potential to push inside. Our staff is expecting heavy attrition to the NFL with the current crop of backers and we need to reload. Shemar James is an important target to close out the cycle as a result. Watch out for bama here as well late.

On WR, we’ve been unable to confirm that 4 star WR Antonio Williams made it to Athens this week. That’s a bummer. We are hearing that UGA is in his final 2 along with Ole Miss. The thought is that we’ll secure an OV there late cycle. I will get info on Williams as soon as it comes in. 

4 Star WR Kojo Antwi is also a target for UGA to close the cycle. Everything we’re hearing here confirms he wants a seat on the bus. We continue to hear that Kirby will stop and pick him up as well. There will be movement at WR this cycle from the current commit list. Don’t be alarmed or surprised. This WR group will be very solid.

4 Star Edge defender, Marvin Jones, really enjoyed his time in Athens this week. He got personal time with Kirby and Lanning, and they discussed how he would be used in Athens. I’m hearing that this visit should lead to another visit before the cycle is over but that visit is not yet confirmed to staff to be an OV. Shooters shoot, and we’re shooting. Still a ways to go but car is in drive here. Marvin Jones would be a HUGE addition to the class. 

I did get to read a post about 2022 QB Thomas Castellanos and our staff pursuing him at QB. I haven’t heard anything on that yet. Not too concerned about it either as I think it would be a long shot to sign him. You’re going to have to be elite to emerge at QB at UGA folks; elite. Lots of talent in that room to compete with with more talent downstream watching the ebbs and flows of that room (who’s staying/leaving). 

3 Star edge, James Pearce is higher in the board than his current ranking suggests. At this time, our belief is that he’s still an option with others higher on the board. He does have a committable offer though is what heard yesterday.

On to class of 2023…

I previously said things weren’t trending in the right direction for 5 Star DL LT Overton. Now would be a good time to retract that statement. Things have changed with UGA. Overton has a great relationship with many at UGA, including Scott Cochran who has been around the team again lately. Long way to go on this but for now, UGA would be in his top 3. Logically, how we close out the class could matter to him, especially looking at Shemar Stewart. 

5 Star CB AJ Harris continues to show the Dawgs a lot of love. I’m hearing he’s developing a stronger relationship with coach Addae, and has had a long relationship with Kirby. At this point in time, it’s our belief he’s our best chance as the DB headliner for 23 at CB. Harris along with commit Marcus Washington and 5 star S Joenel Aguero would be huge. Harris is watching our depth at CB as well, so that could have an impact on his future plans. Have to love the Dawgs’s chances here today though.

On OL at 2023, we continue to love where we sit with Madden Sanker and Bradyn Joiner. Both are great young men who would transition well from HS to Athens. Be on the lookout for public pledges with them soo

Sorry about the colored fonts.

Thanks for sharing. I think if we continue to play well, we could be in a great position to reload and keep the talent deep. Thats the main reason we have survived this year even with all the injuries and still continue to win. Plus this staff has done an amazing job of developing players.
