UGA Recruiting: Do the Dawgs Have Anything to Worry About With DL Commit?

clark812

Tyler Clark committed to UGA back on May 15th, giving the Dawgs their 9th commit and our 1st DL commit. He is also part of the often talked about “Fab 5” defensive linemen that UGA is recruiting, along with Derrick Brown, Antwuan Jackson, Rashan Gary, and UGA commit Julian Rochester.

We could easily end up with three out of those five d-linemen. Getting all 5 isn’t very likely at all, but there’s a small possibility we could grab 4 of the 5. UGA still leads for Brown, while Rashan gary is giving us a very strong look. We’ll also have to work to keep Tyler Clark in the fold, as Auburn is trying to snag him out from under us.

UGA Recruiting: Dawgs Looking to Flip Miami OL Commit

donaldson728

If you remember we posted a story a while back of a big kid from Miami that received his first offer from UGA while camping in Athens. That kid was Navaughn Donaldson from Miami Central in Miami Florida. The 6’5 300 pounder grabbed the head coach by the waste and hoisted Richt over his head.

UGA Recruiting: Five Star Update

gary 72

Let’s start this off with an honest assesment on UGA recruiting…………………………..As much as we love and support every commit we get, it seems like we have been left at the altar more times than not with the big fish. This has even been the case with the in-state commits.

2013 seems to be the worst year when we lost out on Robert Nkemdiche, Laremy Tunsil, Montravius Adams, Derrick Henry, Vonn Bell, and Alvin Kamara.It also looks like it may have been the last year we have to deal with that. While we’ll never win every battle, this staff is recruiting on an entirely different level.

UGA Football: Injury Report

Yesterday marked UGA’s second day of two-a days, the first being Sunday with a trip to swim and dive at The Ramsey set in between. It was also a week since practice officially started. This is the time that a lot of the smaller injuries begin to creep up.

Such is the case, as it’s the first time we have a list of guys missing practice time.

UGA Practice: Freshman DL Running With the 1’s

Trent Thompson

 

Just how special is Trent Thompson? That answer is yet to be determined as he has just completed his first week of practices at UGA. In Pruitt’s first interview Coach Pruitt tried to temper expectations for the freshman sensation.

That is a task in itsself for the defensive coordinator, as some are already pegging Big Trent as one of the best to come through UGA. That is understandable as the #1 overall player in the 2015 class averaged 37 tackles for loss his last two seasons at Westover High.

If that wasn’t enough, he went on to dominate the other top rated prospects at the Army All American Game. Now (via multiple reports) Trent was getting a lot of reps with the #1 DL in the early morning practice yesterday.

It is smart for the coaches to temper expectations on the freshmen, as it’s easy for fans to go overboard with excitement. While we don’t want to build him up to the point that anything short of dominating every offensive lineman he faces is a disappointment, it is obvious that we have something special in the making in this young man.

Dawgs Still Learning What Jeremy Pruitt is All About

pruitt 65

Georgia’s defensive players are still learning what Jeremy Pruitt is all about.

It’s attention to detail, being a ball hawk, establishing toughness and above all — no mental errors and no loafing.

“Both of those are pretty much a zero tolerance policy,” cornerback Aaron Davis told the Athens Banner-Herald. “He’s definitely going to correct you, he’s going to confront you about it, which he should.”

The former Alabama secondary coach and Florida State defensive coordinator told the Banner-Herald that last year, the Bulldogs’ older players really didn’t know “what we wanted to get accomplished.”

This year, upperclassmen like senior defensive tackle Sterling Bailey are enforcing Pruitt’s message on the field in hopes of avoiding collapses like the 418 and 399 yards rushing the Bulldogs yielded in losses to Florida and Georgia Tech, respectively.

“It’s our team,” Bailey told the Banner-Herald. “He’s not the one who’s going to be out there playing. He leaves it up to us to jump on them about the loafs.”

UGA Recruiting: Dawgs in Three Way Tie for #5 CB in the Nation

ssamuels811

One thing that has been very consistent with Stanford Samuels is that UGA has been at the top or tied at the top since the Dawgs were one of his first offers last October. The former 5 star recruit, who you see covering Kyle Davis in the pic above, is a 2017 CB and a FSU legacy recruit.

That hasn’t stopped Jeremy Pruitt from putting a target on the kid that he wants and working harder than anyone else to earn that commitment.

UGA Recruiting: Dawgs to get Official Visit from FSU Running Back Commit

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

One legitimate complaint that most recruitniks had before our current staff came on board was the number of guys we would recruit at one position. Often times it felt like we had our big fish, and if we missed on him we’d be left scrambling to find a quick replacement. A variety of issues came up with this mindset. You’re not going to win every recruiting battle. Some kids aren’t going to qualify. The list could go on and on.

Now when we lose a recruiting battle for one of our top targets, there’s another top target that we have been recruiting just as hard along the way. Look no further than our WR, OL, and DB boards for the evidence. In each instance we’re recruiting at least double the amounts of spots we have left. This is alo true at running back, where UGA is recruiting at least 3 for 1 likely spot.

The Dawgs were originally scheduled to have their two a day practice yesterday. That was quietly rescheduled to Sunday. It looks like someone was looking at the weather ahead of time, as yesterdays practice was rained out. Richt decided to continue one of the players’ favorite traditions by taking the team to The Ramsey for some swimming and diving. Check out the fun the guys had:

Rankings. I love them, you love them, we all love them, right? (Actually, that depends on where your team falls).
