UGA Spring Practice Injury Report

Well, we’re through 8 of 15 spring practices and there are a number of injuries at key positions for the Dawgs. Right now we look to be pretty thin at running back and wide receiver. We’re not quite as thin at outside linebacker, but there are injuries there as well. Shoulder injuries dominate the list with 5 out of 9 players out for shoulder surgeries or other shoulder conditions. Let’s check them out:

Pre Spring Injuries
Michael Barnett – freshman – surgery for pre existing labral injury – will miss spring
Leonard Floyd – rs junior – shoulder surgery – likely to miss entire spring
Davin Bellamy – rs sophomore – likely out for spring after shoulder surgery

Spring Injuries
Keith Marshall – rs junior – possibly out for the rewst of spring with hamstring injury
Sony Michel – sophomore – possibly out for the rewst of spring with shouder injury
Shakenneth Williams – sophomore – out with hamstring injury
Blake Tibbs – likely out the rest of spring with shoulder injury
Charlie Hegedus – rs junior – out with various injuries
Shattle Fenteng – rs junior – will miss the rest of spring with rib injury

We’ll look to get these back eith later in the spring or for fall practice. Also praying for safe practices free of injury for the rest of the team. GO DAWGS!!!

Big Recruiting Day On………….Tuesday???

hd and commit

Multiple recruits have used the phrase “there’s something special going on up there” when referring to the Dawgs. Days like Tuesday show that the proof is in the pudding. In recent years Tuesday would have been a normal spring practice for UGA, but this year is different. This new staff at UGA is recruiting their tails off and taking advantage of every opportunity they have to get prospects on campus.

One prospect that was already scheduled to be on campus is 2016 OT Jonah Williams. Williams is a 6’5 275 lineman taking an unofficial visit all the way from Folsom California. Why is the #9 OT in the nation coming all this way on his own dime? He’s actually originally from The Marist School in Atlanta and a former teammate of Sage Hardin. He is also a UGA legacy, as his father went to UGA.

#3 This Week: Get Control of Your Program Saban

And fire the Tuscaloosa PD!

Another Alabama player was arrested this week. This time it’s Tyren Jones, after being in a car that was pulled over and then arrested for marijuana. Guess it’s time for more “psychological counseling”. Jones was already indefinitely suspended and has now been dismissed from the team. I wonder if the first string runningback would have been dismissed from the team? Looks like Saban needs to get control of his program!

Side note: All three players from the gumps arrested this week are from the state of Georgia.

UGA 2016 Recruiting Needs – Runningback

THE RETURNERS – 6
UGA is and will still be stacked at the RB position for a while. Keith Marshall would be a redshirt senior for the 2016 season, although I guess there’s a chance he could decide to leave early. Nick Chubb and Sony Michel will both be juniors, while AJ Turman will be a redshirt junior. Incoming 2015 RB Tae Crowder could be a sophomore, but will likely redshirt this year. He could also see a position change.

Saban Discusses Jonathan Taylor

There is not much to say after watching this. Typical Saban with the smoke and mirrors. Either EVERYONE else is wrong or all of the crimson tide media need to grow a pair. Listen for yourself:

WILMINGTON, N.C. — Georgia’s Lee McCoy continued his recent hot streak by sharing medalist honors at the Seahawk Intercollegiate on Monday at the Country Club of Landfall.

McCoy, a junior, finished at even-par 216, including a final-round 2-over 74. McCoy and Virginia Commonwealth’s Adam Ball were declared co-medalists.

McCoy won for the second straight week, for the third time this season and for the fourth time in his career. He also has finished second, fourth, fifth, 11th and 12th, and his season average is now 69.91. Last week, he was chosen as the National Golfer of the Week by Golfweek and as the Co-Golfer of the Week by the Southeastern Conference.

SOCRATES FAB V: TOP LINEMAN IN GEORGIA, cont.

socrates_knuckles

Today we finish up our series of the Fab V the top Offensive Lineman in Georgia by mentioning some others that just missed the cut, and some special recognition of  the other High School lineman in Georgia.

Who was sixth on my list evaluated?  That was Devin Cochran 6’7” 300 Greater Atlanta Christian School.  Devin,has great size and body to pack the pounds on a tall frame, and loves his pancakes.   He scored a 7.49 on my 8 scale only a small fraction from our number 5 Luke Edler.

http://www.hudl.com/athlete/2599862/highlights/163698387/v2

I chose not to fully evaluate and rank Jack DeFoor 6’5” 268 Calhoun High School,  Calhoun GA, as he is out with Shoulder Surgery.  His film was very impressive, and we hope he recovers well and competes at Dawgnight for an offer.

http://www.hudl.com/athlete/2837162/highlights/165239375/v2

No evaluation for Zach Thompson, 6’4” 297 Emanuel County Institute, Twin City GA.  Just could not get enough film on him to evaluate this young lineman.  A relative of his posts on UGA Sports that UGA is very interested in Zach and an offer may be coming soon.

The most intriguing lineman reviewed was Robert Kraeling 6’8” 260 Prince Avenue Christian, Bogart GA.  When opening up Robert’s film and watching, at first the thought occurred to me he could be a very good Tackle with weight gain.  He is very fast at 4.85 40 and moves well.  Kraeling holds offers from Alabama and Tennessee.  Keep your eye on Robert if he starts packing some weight and keeps that speed, many other schools will offer and possibly UGA.

Of course Socrates loves Mean and Nasty…. and this young man is all of that….fun film to watch on a fine lineman….Forrest Evans 6’3” 275 Walton High School, Marietta GA

http://www.hudl.com/athlete/2798688/highlights/203218376/v2

Also evaluated for this series, were the following lineman (all evaluated at 7.2 and above), and will likely be playing on Saturdays.  We will keep a close eye on their development:

Robbie Bell, 6’5” 285 lbs., Mill Creek High School, Hoschton GA,  Raymond Smith 6’3” 325 Macon County High School,  Tremayne Anchrum  6’4” 250, McEachern High School,  Allen Williams 6’6” 310 Appling High School, Matthew Castner 6’2” 287 Blessed Trinity Roswell GA,  D’Ante Smith 6’4”305 Grovetown GA,  Cameron Whiteman 6’3” 295 Roswell HS  Roswell GA,  Jeffery Taylor 6’3” 293 Jonesboro HighSchool, Patrick Kearns 6’5”265 Darlington High School, Raekwon Allen 6’4”320 Spencer High School, Austin Hester 6’5” 280  Shaw High School

Thank you to the High School coaches and staffs that are doing a great job with the lineman in Georgia.  Your efforts do not go unnoticed.  To our readers thank you for taking the time to read this series.

GATA ALWAYS!
