UGA Spring Practice Injury Report

Well, we’re through 8 of 15 spring practices and there are a number of injuries at key positions for the Dawgs. Right now we look to be pretty thin at running back and wide receiver. We’re not quite as thin at outside linebacker, but there are injuries there as well. Shoulder injuries dominate the list with 5 out of 9 players out for shoulder surgeries or other shoulder conditions. Let’s check them out:

Pre Spring Injuries
Michael Barnett – freshman – surgery for pre existing labral injury – will miss spring
Leonard Floyd – rs junior – shoulder surgery – likely to miss entire spring
Davin Bellamy – rs sophomore – likely out for spring after shoulder surgery

Spring Injuries
Keith Marshall – rs junior – possibly out for the rewst of spring with hamstring injury
Sony Michel – sophomore – possibly out for the rewst of spring with shouder injury
Shakenneth Williams – sophomore – out with hamstring injury
Blake Tibbs – likely out the rest of spring with shoulder injury
Charlie Hegedus – rs junior – out with various injuries
Shattle Fenteng – rs junior – will miss the rest of spring with rib injury

We’ll look to get these back eith later in the spring or for fall practice. Also praying for safe practices free of injury for the rest of the team. GO DAWGS!!!

Big Recruiting Day On………….Tuesday???

hd and commit

Multiple recruits have used the phrase “there’s something special going on up there” when referring to the Dawgs. Days like Tuesday show that the proof is in the pudding. In recent years Tuesday would have been a normal spring practice for UGA, but this year is different. This new staff at UGA is recruiting their tails off and taking advantage of every opportunity they have to get prospects on campus.

One prospect that was already scheduled to be on campus is 2016 OT Jonah Williams. Williams is a 6’5 275 lineman taking an unofficial visit all the way from Folsom California. Why is the #9 OT in the nation coming all this way on his own dime? He’s actually originally from The Marist School in Atlanta and a former teammate of Sage Hardin. He is also a UGA legacy, as his father went to UGA.

#3 This Week: Get Control of Your Program Saban

And fire the Tuscaloosa PD!

Another Alabama player was arrested this week. This time it’s Tyren Jones, after being in a car that was pulled over and then arrested for marijuana. Guess it’s time for more “psychological counseling”. Jones was already indefinitely suspended and has now been dismissed from the team. I wonder if the first string runningback would have been dismissed from the team? Looks like Saban needs to get control of his program!

Side note: All three players from the gumps arrested this week are from the state of Georgia.

uga golf

WILMINGTON, N.C. — Georgia’s Lee McCoy continued his recent hot streak by sharing medalist honors at the Seahawk Intercollegiate on Monday at the Country Club of Landfall.

McCoy, a junior, finished at even-par 216, including a final-round 2-over 74. McCoy and Virginia Commonwealth’s Adam Ball were declared co-medalists.

McCoy won for the second straight week, for the third time this season and for the fourth time in his career. He also has finished second, fourth, fifth, 11th and 12th, and his season average is now 69.91. Last week, he was chosen as the National Golfer of the Week by Golfweek and as the Co-Golfer of the Week by the Southeastern Conference.

SOCRATES FAB V: TOP LINEMAN IN GEORGIA, cont.

socrates_knuckles

Today we finish up our series of the Fab V the top Offensive Lineman in Georgia by mentioning some others that just missed the cut, and some special recognition of  the other High School lineman in Georgia.

Who was sixth on my list evaluated?  That was Devin Cochran 6’7” 300 Greater Atlanta Christian School.  Devin,has great size and body to pack the pounds on a tall frame, and loves his pancakes.   He scored a 7.49 on my 8 scale only a small fraction from our number 5 Luke Edler.

http://www.hudl.com/athlete/2599862/highlights/163698387/v2

I chose not to fully evaluate and rank Jack DeFoor 6’5” 268 Calhoun High School,  Calhoun GA, as he is out with Shoulder Surgery.  His film was very impressive, and we hope he recovers well and competes at Dawgnight for an offer.

http://www.hudl.com/athlete/2837162/highlights/165239375/v2

No evaluation for Zach Thompson, 6’4” 297 Emanuel County Institute, Twin City GA.  Just could not get enough film on him to evaluate this young lineman.  A relative of his posts on UGA Sports that UGA is very interested in Zach and an offer may be coming soon.

The most intriguing lineman reviewed was Robert Kraeling 6’8” 260 Prince Avenue Christian, Bogart GA.  When opening up Robert’s film and watching, at first the thought occurred to me he could be a very good Tackle with weight gain.  He is very fast at 4.85 40 and moves well.  Kraeling holds offers from Alabama and Tennessee.  Keep your eye on Robert if he starts packing some weight and keeps that speed, many other schools will offer and possibly UGA.

http://www.hudl.com/athlete/1527812/highlights/172181379/v2

Of course Socrates loves Mean and Nasty…. and this young man is all of that….fun film to watch on a fine lineman….Forrest Evans 6’3” 275 Walton High School, Marietta GA

http://www.hudl.com/athlete/2798688/highlights/203218376/v2

Also evaluated for this series, were the following lineman (all evaluated at 7.2 and above), and will likely be playing on Saturdays.  We will keep a close eye on their development:

Robbie Bell, 6’5” 285 lbs., Mill Creek High School, Hoschton GA,  Raymond Smith 6’3” 325 Macon County High School,  Tremayne Anchrum  6’4” 250, McEachern High School,  Allen Williams 6’6” 310 Appling High School, Matthew Castner 6’2” 287 Blessed Trinity Roswell GA,  D’Ante Smith 6’4”305 Grovetown GA,  Cameron Whiteman 6’3” 295 Roswell HS  Roswell GA,  Jeffery Taylor 6’3” 293 Jonesboro HighSchool, Patrick Kearns 6’5”265 Darlington High School, Raekwon Allen 6’4”320 Spencer High School, Austin Hester 6’5” 280  Shaw High School

Thank you to the High School coaches and staffs that are doing a great job with the lineman in Georgia.  Your efforts do not go unnoticed.  To our readers thank you for taking the time to read this series.

GATA ALWAYS! 

Gymdogs in NCAA Regional at Cal

gym

ATHENS—–Tenth-ranked Georgia will compete in the NCAA Berkeley Regional Saturday, April 4 at 9 p.m. ET at Cal’s Haas Pavilion. The No. 2-seeded Gymdogs and five other teams will be vying for two spots in the NCAA Championships April 17-19 in Fort Worth, Texas. Joining the Gymdogs in Berkeley will be No. 3 Utah, No. 15 Boise State, No. 20 Cal, Utah State and BYU.

BRACKET | MEET NOTES

UGA’s rotation in the regional will be bye, bars, beam, bye, floor, vault. Utah will start on bars, Boise State on beam, Cal on bye before floor, Utah State on vault and BYU on floor. Ten-time NCAA champion Georgia has won a total of 23 NCAA regionals, including 13 in the last 17 years.

The top two teams and the top two all-around competitors who are not on an advancing team from each regional will receive an automatic berth to the national championships. The top two teams from the Cal, West Virginia and Ohio State regionals will compete in first prelim on April 17, and the top two teams from the Auburn, Oklahoma and Iowa State regionals will compete in the evening session.

Last Time Out
Georgia placed first in the afternoon session and fifth overall with a 196.000 in the SEC Championship in Duluth, Ga., March 21. The Gymdogs were on pace for a 197.000 at the halfway point, but had to count two falls on beam. Georgia finished with a 49.350 on floor in the fourth rotation to climb three spots in the final standings.

Noteworthy
» Georgia has faced only one team in the Berkeley Regional this season. The Gymdogs knocked off previously unbeaten Utah with a season-high score of 197.450 in the final meet of the regular season on March 14.

» The NCAA Berkeley Regional features the two teams – Georgia and Utah – that have combined for the most NCAA team titles. The Gymdogs have won 10 NCAA titles, while Utah has won nine.

» Georgia is traveling across the country for an NCAA Regional for the second time in three seasons. The Gymdogs, who hosted a regional last season in Athens, placed first in the Corvallis, Ore., Regional in 2013.

» Georgia competed this season against six teams currently ranked in the top-eight in the country: No. 2 Florida, No. 3 Utah, No. 4 LSU, No. 5 Alabama, No. 6 Michigan and No. 8 Auburn.

» Georgia’s Danna Durante was head coach for one season at Cal before taking the same position at UGA in May of 2012.

Rankings
Georgia came in at No. 10 in the final rankings of the regular season. UGA is tied for 14th on vault, eight on bars, 11th on beam and 12th on floor. Individually, Brittany Rogers is the highest ranked Gymdog on any event, coming in at No. 11 on bars. Mary Beth Box, who was the SEC runner-up on beam, is tied for 19th on that event. Chelsea Davis is tied for 20th on bars, and Brandie Jay is tied for 21st on vault.

SEC Honors
Five Georgia gymnasts – second most of any team in the conference – earned 2015 SEC honors. Mary Beth Box, Gigi Marino, Rachel Schick and Brittany Rogers were named to the All-SEC Team, while Natalie Vaculik and Marino were named to the All-Freshman Team. Florida led the way with six gymnasts earning SEC honors, followed by Georgia with five, then Alabama and LSU with four each. Georgia and Florida had the most representatives on the All-Freshman team with two. The All-SEC and All-Freshman teams are based on results at the SEC Championship.

Up Next
If Georgia finishes first or second in the Cal Regional, it will advance to the NCAA Championships April 17-19 at the Fort Worth Convention Center in Fort Worth, Texas. The NCAA prelims will be held April 17, with Semifinal I scheduled for a 2 p.m. ET start, and Semifinal II set to begin at 8 p.m. Georgia would be in the first session. The top-three teams in each semifinal session will advance to the Super Six April 18 at 7 p.m. The Individual Event Finals will be held April 19 at 3 p.m.

UGA 2016 Recruiting – Where We Stand

commit to the g

UGA currently has 7 solid commits for the 2016 class. That’s good for 8th in the nation and 4th in the SEC. We just finished with a couple of junior days with tons of visitors. Two things to look out for are Jacob Eason visiting around G-Day. He’ll have WRs such as Demetris Robertson (Alabama commit) and Kyle Davis (USCe commit) come workout with him. Mark Richt camps are also coming up in June.

One That Got Away – Raekwon McMillan

raekwon

As a linebacker from Liberty County in Hinesvile GA, it was thought early on that Raekwon McMillan would almost certainly be a UGA commit. After all, he 6’2 240 pound LB was in the middle of Dawg country. It wasn’t meant to be, as Raekwon committed to Ohio State on December 13, 2013.

Ohio State obviously did a good job recruiting Raekwon, while it seems like the home state Dawgs slowed down their contact on occassion. UGA did turn up the heat some in the end. Evidenced by 76% of voters picking him to OSU in the 247 crystal ball, it is well known that McMillan was a heavy Ohio State lean by then.

So, what happened with Raekwon and UGA? The Dawgs were able to secure his first official visit on September 27, 2013. It was just too little, too late. Some argued that he was too big of a LB to play in Todd Grantham’s 3-4 defense, and too small to play DE. Honestly, I think this is one that the previous defensive staff just dropped the ball on. With Raekwon already earning defensive playing time on the national championship team, he is already one that we’re wishing was playing Tween the Hedges on Saturdays.
