UGA Recruiting: Dawgs Now After 6’5 Receiver from South Georgia

xavier jenkins

We often talk about UGA’s depth at the receiver position. Also often discussed is what normally seems to be a lack of size of our receiving corp. The coaching staff did some work getting bigger bodied receivers this year with 6’4 Javon Wims and 6’5 Charlie Woerner.

We’re also now working on that with the 2017 class and this last offer that went out.

It was to 6’5 195 pound receiver Xavier Jenkins out of powerhouse Lowndes County in Valdosta.

UGA Recruiting: Featuring Davis Mills – Will Dawgs Offer?

Davis Mills will have an interesting recruitment his senior year. Right now it looks like there’s a possibility that he might be headed out west to play his college ball. Stanford has offered and 3 of his 5 crystal ball votes are for them. UCLA is also high on his list.

Currently UGA has not offered the GAC quarterback. It’s a very deep in state class with Bailey Hockman, Chase Brice, and Jake Fromm also coming out this year. Of course the Dawgs had Hockman committed and seem to be after Fromm. Would an offer from UGA make a difference in his recruitment? If so, how long can Kirby Smart and Jim Chaney wait?

2015 Freshman That Will Need to Step In – DL DaQuan Hawkins

daquan hawkins0211

DaQuan Hawkins has provided plenty of good surprises for the Dawgs. Let’s be honest, when a 3* under the radar recruit comes in late in the recruiting process and commits to a school, you don’t really expect him to be a contributor right away.

The commitment was somewhat of a surprise, but Hawking being one of the first freshman defensive lineman to get playing time was an even bigger surprise. We’re not talking 4th quarter and up by 30 playing time, we’re talking significant playing time.

Early Look at UGA’s 2016 Depth Chart – Running Back

11.29.14 Georgia Tech at UGA28

Another obvious scenario here. Whenever Nick Chubb is healthy and back to normal, he is our guy. The question is when will that happen?

Best case scenario is he is ready game one. It’s still pretty early to tell how likely that is , but we can dream. Also obvious is the fact that when Chubb can’t go, Sony Michel is our man.

Mr Jazz Hands did a great job last season filling in for the injured Heisman contender, but the UGA offense seemed to be at it’s best with Chubb at RB and the ability to move Sony all over the field.

Tennessee Sexual Assault Case Hitting National News

sec media bhs718

You had to think it would catch up to them sooner or later. The University of Tennessee is making national news and not for good reasons. There’s no doubt that they have done a good job of turning the football program around, but was it at a cost?

Six women have filed a lawsuit against the university. It states that Tennessee has created a culture that enables sexual assaults by student athletes, especially football players. It also states that they use an unusual, legalistic adjudication process that is biased against victims who step forward.

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. – The 11th-ranked Georgia men’s tennis team fell in the opening round of the ITA National Men’s Team Indoor Championship to No. 9 UCLA, 4-3. The Bulldogs (3-2) were seeded 10th at the Championship, held at Boar’s Head Sports Club, while the Bruins (6-1) were seeded seventh in the teams’ second matchup of the spring season.

“It was a very tough, heartbreaking match for our guys,” head coach Manuel Diaz said. “UCLA played very well and deserves all the credit for coming back after being down. Our guys just have to keep their heads up and keep fighting. We have to get better, and I know that we will.”

UGA Recruiting: Are We on Commit Watch With This Weekends Big Visits?

kirby committed to the g

National signing day of 2016 is behind us. We did lose on a couple of recruits that we really wanted, but also gained a lot. So far I would consider it a succesful class, considering the season and coaching changes. I say so far because we have a couple of guys who have yet to decide.

We’re still working on getting Demetris Robertson on campus before he makes his decision and we’ll have Rhode Island offensive tackle transfer Tyler Catalina on campus for an official visit this weekend.

Neither is on immediate commit watch quite yet, but there will be plenty of 2017 recruits on campus that might want to decide to pull the trigger. Some are obviously closer than others.

UGA Recruiting: 5* DB Has Dawgs as His Leader

poole 0210

Two days ago we talked about UGA having momentum with 5* (Rivals) DB William Poole. The next day, he has good news for Dawg fans!

While talking to Dawgs247, he let them know that UGA is in the lead.

Lately it has looked like a close race between the in-state Georgia Bulldogs and Florida. Both programs just changed their DB coaches, with UGA hiring Mel Tucker as DB coach and defensive coordinator. The Gators were able to pull Torrian Gray away from Virginia Tech as their new DB coach.

UGA Recruiting: Can We Offer Eugene Brown NOW!

eugene brown

Greg Blue anyone!

Although he may be a targeting call waiting to happen in this day and age of college football, it’s going to be fun watching Eugene Brown lay the lumber at the next level.

The 6’0 190 pounder is a safety that plays in the old school mold. Brown is currently unranked by 247sports, but that won’t take long to change when his season starts, if not before.

UGA Recruiting: Featuring Andrew Thomas – Dawgs Scheduled to Have Thomas on Campus

Andrew Thomas has the perfect height and length for what Sam Pittman is looking for in his offensive linemen. Add to this that it is a big position of need for the Dawgs and Thomas is in state, which gives you the perfect marraige.

Thomas is scheduled to be on campus this weekend and already has an offer from UGA. He also has approximately 20 more offers just from power5 programs. It’s a pretty deep offensive tackle class when he is the #90 player in the nation, making him the #16 OT. Look for Thomas to be one of the main offensive linemen that UGA recruits. As a matter of fact, UGA actually received a couple of crystal ball votes for Thomas yesterday.
