Well, Kyle Davis will only run out of the tunnel with a helmet on tomorrow night. That’s normally how you do it, but the 5* wide receiver had planned to announce his commitment by running out with a hat of his chosen program on his head.

“I am just not ready,” Davis said to Scout.  “It is a tough decision and I just do not think I am ready.”

UGA Recruiting: Wide Receiver Target Has UGA and UF on Top

holloway

If there is a faster wide receiver than Grant Holloway in the 2016 class we haven’t seen him. The Dawgs are heavily recruiting the speedster and bringing him in with Jacob Eason gives us a very good option to take the top off of the field, something we seemingly haven’t been able to do the past season and a half.

Holloway gave the Dawgs good news yesterday.

UGA Recruiting: Dawgs Offer 4* WDE From North Carolina

lawler1022

With this week being a bye week, UGA can do more on the recruiting trail. This includes visiting games tonight, evaluating, and sending out offers. One offer that just went out is to Jake Lawler, a 6’3 225 pound WDE in the 2017 class.

The Dawgs really seem to be concentrating on continuing to try and get very athletic guys to play out on the edge. Losing Jordan Jenkins and likely Leonard Floyd is requiring us to concentrate more at the position in the 2016 and 2017 classes and Lawler is just the type player we need to plug in there.

***UPDATE***

OF COURSE, NOW DAVIS IS POSTPONING HIS DECISION

 

In case you’ve been under a rock for the past month and didn’t know, Kyle Davis is committing tomorrow night at his homecoming football game. Who he is committing to is anybody’s guess. One week it seems like Auburn is trending and another week it seems like UGA is the team to beat. It may even be more like day by day. One consistent right now is that it seems like Tennessee is behind the other two. The other is that he has basically went media silent.

He did say how he was going to commit though, which is different from his original plans.

UGA Recruiting: Dawgs Setting Up to Have Another Top Linebacker Class in 2017

commit to the g

UGA has been known lately for having top notch linebackers playing Between the Hedges, with many of them going to the NFL. Both Jarvis Jones and Alec Ogletree were taken in the first round of the 2013 draft. Ramik Wilson and Amarlo Herrera were also taken in the 4th and 6th rounds last year. Of course we also have Jordan Jenkins and Leonard Floyd who could easily have first round projections in this years draft.

The Dawgs also had a monster class last year, with most of them already contributing significant minutes. Roquan Smith, Natrez Patrick, D’Andre Walker, Chuks Amaechi, and Juwan Taylor look to help supplment the loss of Jenkins and Floyd along with Davin Bellamy and Lorenzo Carter.

In his last game he had 6 tackles, 3 TFL, 1 sack, and 3 QB hurries. The type of season he’s having just goes to show that you can’t totally depend on summer camps to evaluate these recruits. Some guys just have it on the field.
