Well, what’s it going to be. Many fans are probably thinking it’s been 4 whole days since Trevor Lawrence finished his final visits to UGA and Clemson and he hasn’t revealed his choice yet.
It’s easy to get caught up in recruiting and get impatient and one of the questions on most everyone’s mind is this. Is a decision still on the horizon or will the 2018 5* QB take longer than originally planned to make his choice?
Another question would be this. Does anyone really have a good idea of which of the two he will choose?

The very interesting recruitment of 5* Tennessee athlete JaCoby Stevens is now ready to come to somewhat of a close.
We say somewhat of a close, because you can be sure all of these powerhouse programs will continue to recruit him until NSD or until he enrolls early, if that’s what he chooses to do.
The 5* athlete now has a top 4 to choose from and will make his announcement at his school on August 8th at 3:30 EST.
Malik Herring is one of those in-state prospects that you just don’t want to miss on. We were on him a little bit later than some, but Kirby Smart and company have definitely ramped up the intensity.
Since that time his recruitment has really thought to be a big UGA/Clemson battle, while a big recent visit to Alabama has the Crimson Tide in the mix.
Herring released his top 5 three days ago that included those three programs along with USC and LSU.
Even as a 4* prospect, Jeremiah Holloman is severely underrated as the #23 WR in the nation. He’s done nothing but prove himself time and time again against tough competition. Guess it really doesn’t matter since rankings aren’t everything. The 6’2 185 pounder has an offer list comparable to any receiver in the country.
While he was committed to Michigan early on, his recruiting really took off after UGA offered him. He hasn’t really been back and forth in his recruitment, but has seemed to have UGA and Tennessee at the top for a while. Auburn is probably the third team to keep an eye on with his below list of top schools. The Dawgs have a good bit of momentum here and while he hasn’t necessarily made any plans, it wouldn’t be a surprise if he is on our commit list sooner rather than later.
The Philadelphia Eagles drafted Brandon Boykin in the 4th round of the 2012 draft. After spending 3 years with the Eagles he was traded to the Steelers, where he only played a year. He played for the Carolina Panthers last year.
Boykin amassed 159 total tackles in his 4 years at UGA. He also snagged 9 interceptions in his college career, 3 in each of his sophomore, junior, and senior years. He was also able to get some time on offense his senior year where he ran for 103 yards and 1 TD on just 7 attempts. He also had 5 receptions for 71 yards and 2 touchdowns. But that’s not all…..
After going for 87 receptions for 891 yards and 7 touchdowns in his first three years in the league, Marlon Brown has signed a one year deal with the world champion Denver Broncos. The 6’5 receiver was waived by the Ravens in May.
Brown signed with UGA as a 5* receiver in the 2009 class out of Memphis. During his time with the Dawgs he grabbed 55 receptions for 851 yards and 8 touchdowns. of course he stayed injured a good bit of his time in Athens, but has definitely made the most out of it.
Free agency after free agency the Atlanta Falcons manage to tick off many UGA fans by not going after former UGA players that could make a difference for their team.
Draft after draft after draft the Atlanta Falcons go through each round with a promising former UGA player sitting on the board. And every single year it seems like they pass on an obvious pick.
In 2015 the obvious pick to many was one Todd Gurley, who ended up going to the St. Louis/Los Angeles Rams with the 10th pick. Instead the Falcons went with Vic Beasley with pick #8. Guess what………………………the Rams got it right!

ATHENS — Legendary cartoonist and illustrator Jack Davis, known for his artwork appearing in Mad Magazine and hundreds of University of Georgia Bulldog caricatures, died Wednesday at the age of 91.
He endeared himself to Georgia Bulldog fans over decades with his famous caricatures of a bulldog usually pummeling opposing team mascots and/or celebrating after UGA victories.

There aren’t many former UGA players that we would pick over Champ Bailey to have a son coming up in the recruiting scene. His son Keevan is a rising sophomore out of Salem in Conyers, GA. The youngster was on campus in Athens last weekend and also visited Florida State last week. At 5’11, he already has good height for a DB.
He is definitely one to keep an eye on down the road, as he obviously has good bloodlines!
Former Georgia coach Mark Richt joined ESPN’s Mike and Mike radio show on Tuesday morning to talk about the idea of eliminating kickoffs from college football.
Of course everyone knows the Devon Gales story by now, an inspiring story that’s had a tremendous effect on the Dawg Nation. The tragic accident happened on a kickoff when he collided with UGA’s kicker.

LINKS: Non-Conference Schedule | Season Ticket Information
ATHENS, Ga. – Eight home games, a potential seven contests against teams that had 20 wins or more a season ago and a trip to the Junkanoo Jam Tournament on Grand Bahamas Island highlight the Georgia Lady Bulldogs’ 2016-17 non-conference schedule, it was announced by head coach Joni Taylor on Tuesday.
“This year’s non-conference schedule gives us a terrific opportunity to play in high-caliber matchups before we step into conference play,” Taylor said. “It is important to us that we give our fans great home games, while also challenging our team during the non-conference schedule. We feel like we have accomplished both of these things, and we can’t wait to get started in November.”

ATHENS, Ga. — The Georgia women’s golf schedule for 2016-17 includes two first-time events mixed in with several traditional stops for the Bulldogs. Head coach Josh Brewer announced the schedule on Tuesday. Georgia will play in nine regular-season events before postseason competition in the SEC and NCAA Championships.
“We came here wanting to win conference titles and national titles,” head coach Josh Brewer said. “To do that, you have to beat the best teams in the country at the end of the year. I think it’s important we see every team from all parts of the country and play in all parts of the country. In Regionals, we could be shipped West so we have to ready to make that adjustment. This year, the national championships are in Chicago, so it’s nice to be in Northwestern’s event and see those type of different conditions and grass.”
