The Dawgs sit in a very good place to add the 5 star TE to this years class now. Since his decommitment, there have been 20 crystal ball picks to UGA up until midnight.

So, what happens now?

Milan Richard is the nephew of Hershel Walker that signed with Clemson in the 2014 class. The Dawgs just received a commitment in the 2016 class from Charlie Woerner, the nephew of UGA great, Scott Woerner.

Hunter’s dad is Brice Hunter, who as you know played football for the Dawgs. His mom was a standout basketball player for UGA under former coach Andy Landers.

UGA Recruiting: Dawgs Trying to Flip Tide DB for the Second Year in a Row

shyheim

You know the story from Last year. UGA hires Pruitt and within days he gets his first commit. That recruit was DB Rico McGraw, who later flipped to Alabama. Pruitt eventually got his guy around NSD as Rico made his final selection and enrolled at UGA.

Shyheim Carter is different in that he has never been committed to UGA, but he is similar to McGraw in that Pruitt was one of the first to recognize his talent.

UGA Recruiting: Where Do the Dawgs Stand With Nigel Warrior?

warrior

If Charlie Woerner is the quietest UGA target in this years class then Nigel Warrior is the second quietest. Some kids just seem to not care that much about being in the recruiting spotlight and there is nothing wrong with that.

Warrior was certainly in the spotlight recently at The Opening, hauling in 6 interceptions wiht 16 pass deflections. A performance like that just makes coaches and fans alike want Warrior on their commit list even more. There are now 10 teams that have that chance, as he released his top 10 via twitter.

UGA Recruiting: 4* OL Visits UGA for Second Time in as Many Weeks

dickerson717

Landon Dickerson was on campus again Sunday getting himself more familiar with the UGA coaches and campus. As many as 20 programs just in the SEC and ACC have offered the 6’5 295 pound 4* offensive lineman, while UGA is somewhat late getting in on his recruitment.

The Dawgs were virtually set on the offensive line for the 2016 class before EJ Price’s decommitment. Coach Sale and company are trying to make up ground and secure an official visit from the talented and versatile offensive lineman.

UGA Recruiting: Alabama Commit Has UGA on His Mind

netori 728

One of the funniest guys you’ll see in the 2017 class is Netori Johnson. The big offensive lineman is known for his Dennis Rodman hair styles. He is also one of the nicest recruits you’ll see interviewed. That niceness ends when it’s time to hit the gridiron, as the 6’5 330 pound offensive lineman drives big defensive linemen back in hopes of getting to the second level and squashing a linebacker.

The Alabama commit visited for Dawgnight, a visit that has UGA on his mind.

UGA Recruiting: Dawgs Miss Out on Big 2017 OL That Bear Hugged Richt

donaldson728

If you remember we posted a story a while back of a big kid from Miami that received his first offer from UGA while camping in Athens. That kid was Navaughn Donaldson from Miami Central in Miami Florida. The 6’5 300 pounder grabbed the head coach by the waste and hoisted Richt over his head.

UGA Recruiting: Dawgs Getting Plenty of Official Visits From the Top 100 Players

commit to the g

Before this current staff came on board it always seemed like all of the top prospects in the nation were always visiting other programs, but not UGA. I mean, one of the main things you want to accomplish as a recruiter is to secure an official visit. Of course, many prospects have a good idea where they want to go before most official visits take place, but many do not. When the visit is on the school’s dime, a recruit can be swayed.

To me, recruiting isn’t a quality vs quantity battle. You really need both and this staff recruits this way. It’s nice to have different options when a recruit decommits instead of having to scramble with late offers. UGA stands in good shape to receive an official visit from just over 25% of the top 100 players in the nation.

UGA Football News: Surprising Name Could be Backup at Tackle

pyke728

One player whose name has been cemented in the starting lineup the past couple of years is 6’6 310 pound John Theus. After starting off at right tackle, he has held the left tackle spot in the lineup. Along with David Andrews, he has been the leader of one of the better o-line units in the nation.

Coach Richt was asked who would step in if Theus had to go out at UGA Day yesterday. After not being able to answer, his response wasn’t totally shocking, but was definitely a name hardly anyone else has mentioned.
