UGA Recruiting: 2016 RB On Commit Watch, Attending Dawgnight

carlin74

Carlin Fils-Aime is a running back that UGA has been recruiting pretty consistently for a while now. He has also had pretty high interest in the Dawgs for a while. Although being from south Florida makes it hard for him to get up to Athens on his own dime, he is scheduled to be here for Dawgnight. This will be his first visit to UGA.

UGA Recruiting: Dawgs WIll Be “In it Until the End” for Top Defensive Lineman

package deal final

The Dawgs are very much expected to get good news today as Antwuan Jackson is announcing his top group. Although he seems to currently favor Auburn, UGA is right up there. It could come down to these two programs. The rising senior told the AJC this week that UGA and Auburn will “always be there” among his top schools. Not only on this weekend’s top 10 list, but until the very end.

Greene and Shockley Break Down UGA Quarterback Battle

ramsey

GREENSBORO — The biggest question swirling around the Georgia football team focuses on the three-player quarterback battle. It’s the key to any story centered on the Bulldogs and for good reason.

Quarterback play — regardless of the makeup of the remainder of the team — plays a major factor in a game fully consumed by up-tempo and pass-first offenses.

After losing record-setting quarterback Aaron Murray after 2013 and Hutson Mason last year, head coach Mark Richt now faces a quarterback dilemma that added a new layer when Virginia senior Greyson Lambert transferred to Georgia last month.

NCAA Investigating Laremy Tunsil, Talks to Step Father

tunsil

The hole that Laremy Tunsil has dug just got a lot deeper, as the NCAA interviewed the step father that Tunsil reportedly assaulted. Here’s what Riley Blevins of the Clarion-Ledger had to report:

But on Thursday, Miller alleged to The Clarion-Ledger that in addition to the contact made by agents he is aware of violations that occurred during Tunsil’s recruitment as well, including claims of falsified academic records and gifts made by the university.

Miller also alleges that the agents have provided Tunsil with other benefits outside of transportation, including gifts of cash, clothes, help with car insurance payments and more.

Athlon Sports College Football 2015 All Freshman Team

thompson godwin

College football fans and coaches already know about the established stars, Heisman contenders and proven players entering 2015. However, there’s no shortage of new faces ready to emerge onto the scene as key contributors for all 128 teams this year.

Since freshmen need more time to develop physically or within a system, it’s tough to count on every newcomer in a signing class to make an immediate impact. However, more freshmen are enrolling early and redshirt seasons help newcomers close the gap with the upperclassmen.

Justin Scott-Wesley Injured Again, Undergoes Minor Knee Surgery

jsw 423

Per Seth Emerson of the AJC, UGA wide receiver Justin Scott-Wesley has undergone arthroscopic knee surgery and will likely be out only until AUgust preseason camp. It is not known if this is the same knee that he previously injured in 2013 against Tennessee in 2013.

The Dawgs may have to depend on JSW to contribute this year as we are pretty thin at the WR position:

UGA Recruiting: Top Target Says He is Going to Shock Everyone

hardman73

Mecole Hardman is one of the top targets left on UGA’s board. I actually have him as the top player in the state and one of the top players in the nation. He has stood out in every setting he has been in at every camp. It looks like UGA is recruiting the 5’11 175 pound athlete as more of a defensive back that will also play some offense at wide receiver. Others are recruiting his as more of a pure wide receiver. Either way, I’d be surprised if he doesn’t have a very successful career.

UGA Recruiting: Dawgs Looking to Flip In-State Tennessee Commit?

okonya73

If you would have asked me a year ago where I thought Chidi Okonya would be playing his college ball I would have quickly answered UGA. He was trending pretty heavily to UGA at the time and was drawing some comparisons to Lorenzo Carter, mainly because of his 6’6 230 pound frame. This isn’t a knock on the kid, but it seems like UGA kind of cooled on him after the summer. He eventually visited Tennessee in March of this year, which led to more visits to Knoxville in April. He eventually committed to the Vols on May 15th.

Dawgs Add a Fullback to the Roster

lestrange

UGA has again taken advantage of the now temporary dismantling of the UAB football program. If you remember, the Dawgs signed LB Jake Ganus to a scholarship quickly after the announcement . Now we have his roommate as well. 6’1 235 pound FB Kyle Lestrange has joined the football team as a preferred walk on. If I remember correctly he was a redshirt freshman last year at UAB. Below are his senior highlights from Milton High School in Alpharetta, GA. His style of play reminds me of some of our old school fullbacks.

Oklahoma to the SEC?

Oklahoma Angling for SEC Expansion Invite?

Could University of Oklahoma President David Boren be angling for his school to receive a future invite to SEC expansion?  Stay with me here.

Boren was outspoken a week ago about his belief in the Big 12’s need to expand.  Boren’s opinion flies directly in the face of his conference commissioner Bob Bowlsby.  The University of Texas, the only other player which matters in Big 12 politics, also prefers the league stay at 10 members for the foreseeable future.
