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 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.

Most nationally-notable upsets every year in the SEC follow common trends.

Underdogs are spirited, often more confident playing at home and the buzz surrounding the game, whether that’s turned up a notch with a late kick-off time or the glare of intense media spotlight, usually plays a factor in how contests unfold.

Foot logs, Flat Feet, and Chubbtown

11.29.14 Georgia Tech at UGA28

July 2, 2015

CHUBBTOWN COMMUNITY – This tree-laden enclave, which snuggles right up to Cave Springs and has a unique and implausible history, is most notably linked today to Georgia’s precocious running back Nick Chubb—known by his family as Nicholas.

He is named for one of eight brothers who settled here during the early days of the Civil War, a phenomenon as baffling as Nick’s stutter step in football traffic when the Georgia offense is bent on a goalward path while opposing defenses render equal effort to hem him up.

UGA Recruiting: Top Prospect in the Nation to Pay Dawgs Another Visit

gary 72

I know this is cliche, but this years Dawgnight is seriously set to be the biggest and best we’ve ever had. The annual premier recruiting weekend is important in so many ways. In the past UGA would use it as more of a camp setting for guys to compete and possibly earn offers. Like many other programs, we are quickly getting away from this. Of course there will still be competition on the field, but the Dawgs are turning this into more of a prime time recruiting event with a lot of players even coming in on Friday to stay the night. I’m not sure if he’s coming on Friday and stay the night or just Saturday, but it looks like there will be one VERY important prospect visiting Athens.

UGA Recruiting: Does #2 JUCO in the Nation Have Interest in UGA

Immediately after the EJ Price decommitment we mentioned that UGA could look to the JUCO ranks for a pure offensive tackle. They did just that yesterday when Coach Sale offered 6’6 290 pound Garrett Bolles. He is currently the #3 overall JUCO  and #2 JUCO tackle in the nation.
