Does Kirby Smart’s first UGA recruiting class deserve a little more love? http://sec.news/1R88il5

Junkyard Blawg:
Quote
Smart’s first class includes three 5-star prospects (matching Bama) — and still could add a fourth if wide receiver Demetris Robertson decides to become a Bulldog —

Plus, half of Georgia’s 2016 recruiting class consists of 4-star players, and Smart managed to steal a couple from his former employer and flip a leading Auburn prospect, too. As for the ones that got away, well, that whole lock-down-the-borders mentality is just unrealistic in a state that’s as heavily recruited by big-time programs as Georgia is.

Signing day has come and gone, and the 247Sports Composite No. 1 wide receiver has yet to decide on which college he intends to play for next fall.  (http://georgia.247sports.com/Bolt/The-battle-for-five-star-Demetris-Robertson-begins-43484178)

Quote
Demetris Robertson (Savannah, Ga./Savannah Christian) hopes to find out next week whether he will be accepted to Stanford. If he gets good news, the plan is to set an official visit to Palo Alto, Calif., potentially Feb. 19. In this scenario, Alabama and Georgia would be battling for an official visit, with a potential Feb. 12 date. Those visit dates are not set in stone and are also dependent on Robertson's high school basketball schedule.

If Robertson is not accepted into Stanford, Alabama and Georgia would both be in line to get Robertson on campus for an official visi

Netori Johnson explains de-commitment from #Alabama, where things stand with #Auburn, #UGA   http://sec.news/1K3xtEa 

(https://pbs.twimg.com/media/CafbEI7UAAAgpYB.jpg)

Quote
“It’s been talked about for a while now,” Johnson told SEC Country. “I discussed this with my mom and my coaches. We sat down and talked about it. That’s where it came from. I didn’t want to de-commit on signing day. That would have been foul and I would have messed with everyone’s moment, so I decided to wait a few days after.”

6-foot-5, 330-pounder had told media for months that he was 100 percent committed to the Crimson Tide, even though he routinely expressed interest in Auburn and Georgia. He says he wasn’t being extremely truthful when he told people just how solid he was with Alabama.

Behind Alabama, Auburn is his No. 2 school and Georgia is No. 3. There is a chance down the road that he could re-commit to the Tide, but it’s going to come down to Alabama offensive line coach Mario Cristobal.

Johnson expressed concern that Cristobal wouldn’t be at Alabama much longer.

Recapping Georgia's national signing day  http://es.pn/1Q5sP4K

Quote
Biggest need heading into signing day: While Smart cleaned up along the defensive line, he needed to add some more girth to the offensive line. Heading into NSD, Georgia's staff had secured commitments from ESPN 300 OG Ben Cleveland, who enrolled early, four-star guard Chris Barnes, and three-star guard Solomon Kindley. Unfortunately, Smart and new offensive line coach Sam Pittman had no offensive tackles. Smart made it very clear when he was hired that he needed to add some big bodies to an offensive line that was losing three starters and needed depth on the outside.

How it was addressed: Well, Smart and his staff came away from NSD with just three offensive linemen. The goal was to get at least five, but the staff came up short here, and Smart was very outspoken about being disappointed with the numbers he ended with up along the offensive line. Cleveland could come in and help right away, but Barnes and Kindley could use some more time to develop. What really hurt was missing out on ESPN 300 tackle E.J. Price from right down the road in Lawrenceville, Georgia. Price, who even seemed somewhat conflicted on NSD, surprised many by picking USC over Georgia. Not having a contingency plan for Price also hurt this staff, which desperately needed at least one OT in this class.

Julian Rochester was worried about a potential shoulder surgery. Thanks to UGA's S&C leader, he's going to be fine: http://www.macon.com/sports/college/sec/university-of-georgia/bulldogs-beat/article59570341.html …

ATHENS

Julian Rochester enrolled at Georgia in January with a slight shoulder injury that was causing him some pain.

Working out hurt and the freshman defensive tackle became worried he’d have to go under the knife to repair the issue. Enter Scott Sinclair, Georgia’s new strength and conditioning coordinator, who, with a series of new workouts, has already helped the afflicted area tremendously.

“I already feel stronger with the injury that happened,” Rochester said. “(Sinclair) said, ‘You’re going to have to get it stronger’ because I thought I would need surgery. He said I’m going to get you stronger.”

Rochester said lifting weights was tough at first but that each exercise has helped strengthen the muscle and heal the injury.

By the end of January, Rochester was lifting without a problem.

“People who have tweaked injuries, if they can’t do one thing he’s already coming up with something,” Rochester said. “He’s a mastermind.”

Rochester, one of Georgia’s six early-enrollees, said he’s thankful to get a head start on the strength and conditioning program because of the rigors it brings...

Can UGA sign the nation’s top class in 2017? The big push starts this weekend http://sec.news/20sPsps

You better believe it.

Quote
There’s the huge official visit this weekend from a potential starter at offensive tackle with Rhode Island fifth-year graduate transfer Tyler Catlina on tap as the most pressing need. The UGA faithful will also be very plugged in to the moves made by 5-star receiver Demetris Robertson over the next month.

Yet this weekend also begins a trend of several “Junior Days” for UGA to welcome and start building relationships with the Class of 2017.

That’s the class where UGA is poised to make its biggest mark. The impending visit of 4-star cornerback William Poole looms as one of the most important this weekend (maybe ever).

Justin Shaffer is a big man even among heavyweights. The 6-foot-5, 335-pounder has hands that measure 10 inches in length from the base of his wrist to his fingertips.

The 3-star offensive lineman from Cedar Grove High School flipped from Louisville to UGA on Monday (https://www.dawgnation.com/football/recruiting/ugas-newest-commit-explains-why-he-flipped-from-louisville)

Quote
Shaffer called his own audible on that one.

“I asked my head coach if I could just make a tweet saying I was de-committing from Louisville and committing to Georgia at the same time,” Shaffer said. “He told me that would be better and I was like ‘OK cool’ so I did that on Monday to make the week start off great.”

Shaffer was close to saying his recruitment was over but wants to leave a few other options. He expects South Carolina and Tennessee to make a big push. The only way he’d consider another school aside from UGA is it offered a “way better” academic opportunity. “Aside from that, I am really down pat with Georgia and really ready to rock and roll and play. I’m really looking for a place where education wise is really it. If somebody’s education program is better than what they offer at Georgia, that would be the only thing that might change my mind. When you talk about the SEC, then Georgia is No. 2 in education behind only Vanderbilt.”

MVP Camp Top Performer and Michigan de-commit set to visit UGA on Monday  (https://www.dawgnation.com/football/recruiting/mvp-camp-top-performer-michigan-de-commit-set-visit-uga-monday)

Quote
Jeremiah Holloman will be at UGA on Monday. The rising senior receiver from Newton High School has an appointment with receiver coach James Coley.

The 6-foot-2, 190-pounder will be fresh off a “Top Overall Performer” honor at the MVP Camp that took place on Sunday at Lovejoy High.  Holloman was named the top camper out of a group that swelled to more than 420 campers.

The MVP of Sunday’s MVP camp learned he had garnered an offer from UGA late Sunday night.

Holloman de-committed from Michigan on Feb. 12. He feels that experience has shown him not to make a hasty decision with his next decision.

Holloman thinks Nick Saban “is a great person” and his reputation is why he’s also very interested in exploring his options with the Crimson Tide.

The nearly 6-foot-3 target felt Ole Miss and Tennessee were recruiting him the hardest and noted those schools already treat him like “family.”

Smart has already told White he’s the program’s No. 1 back for 2018 and also gave him a strong evaluation of what he liked about his game.

White (Scotland County High School/Laurinburg, N.C.) has the skills to elevate a position room for three years. The young man carries the nickname “Zeus”...

6-year-old said he does not have a current leader at this point, but revealed that Clemson and North Carolina have been recruiting him the hardest over the last few months.

“I haven’t heard from Georgia as much as those others,” he told DawgNation last week. “Georgia just pops in and pops out the last couple of months. But I can tell they are all real nice coaches and good people too, though.”

BREAKING: Kirby Smart, UGA offer 18 players from Florida powerhouse IMG Academy http://sec.news/229VVql

Quote
IMG Academy coach Kevin Wright got a text message this morning that shared UGA’s extreme interest in 18 of the 60 current players on his varsity team. UGA offered 18 of his guys in one fell swoop with a text.

There were seven players among those 18 who had previous offers from the program, but the list Wright got on Tuesday morning verified that 18 members of his team still held offers from UGA.

“This is different here to me,” Wright said. “They have vetted the process. This is not a splash move by Georgia for headlines. They have went through the process to find specific guys they feel can help them win championships. That message comes across strong when I talk to the coaches there.”

The latest wave isn’t unprecedented as Tennessee recently offered 20 players from IMG at one time. Ohio State and Buffalo University (of all places) have also mass offered chunks of the IMG football team at one time.

It may look like Georgia is executing a long-secret plan if satellite camps were approved. In fact, head coach Kirby Smart said, the inside view of it is a bit hectic.

“Literally, I get a text every five minutes about another one,” Smart said.

The NCAA reversed itself last week, allowing schools to attend the so-called satellite camps, a term for recruiting camps hosted by a school but not on its own campus. Smart had been philosophically against the camps, along with the rest of the SEC. But once they became legal – the SEC rescinds its rule against them later this month – then word immediately leaked about camps Georgia will be involved in.

One will be at Cedar Grove High School in June, where Georgia will join Michigan’s coaches. A few others have been announced by other high schools. More apparently will be coming, but Smart said he will be “selective.”

“It’s tough, and you’ve got to decide, am I going outside my footprint of recruiting, or am I staying inside,” Smart said on Wednesday, during the SEC spring teleconferences. “That’s the dilemma we have now in trying to make these decisions, that we’re not really used to. …

“Yeah, we’ll be a part of them. But where and when exactly, I mean obviously we’ve got a couple that are out there already. But you’ve got to cut through a lot of hoops to make sure these things are done proper and done under NCAA rules before you can put your name on them. So it’s a little bit of a slower process.”

More issues are involved, Smart pointed out. Which coaches attend each camp: All of them, just a few assistants, the head coach, etc.? He pointed out that you may not want to be attending a satellite camp while you could be hosting a recruit on your campus, or may already have plans to do that.

MURFREESBORO, Tenn. — It was Alabama’s fault.

That’s the hurry-up, no-huddle way to examine why Georgia finished third in the race for the commitment of 5-star prospect JaCoby Stevens.

The Bulldogs missed out on a chance to pair the nation’s top-ranked safety (Richard LeCounte III) with 2017’s N0. 2 recruit (Stevens) at that same position when he choose LSU over UGA, Alabama and Auburn in a ceremony Monday at his high school.

Alabama wedged a window of doubt in the nation’s No. 27 overall prospect regarding Georgia. Think of the Tide as the blocking back that cleared Georgia out of the way for LSU to score this 5-star commitment.

Stevens said “Alabama opened the door for LSU” on Monday. When that wedge opened, LSU shot the gap and eventually earned a re-commitment from the talented Stevens.

Georgia commit, No. 2 safety in the country Richard LeCounte, very early in Liberty County's scrimmage game against Brunswick was knocked out, then had to be taken to a hospital...

On the third play of the game, Richard LeCounte is working at wide receiver and when diving to block for a teammate, LeCounte's head hits a Brunswick defender's knee.  LeCounte went motionless as you see in the video (via pic above).

Most expected at minimum a concussion, but in the end, after a short time at the hospital, he was cleared with no broken bones and no concussion.  He returned at the end of the night to the sideline to cheer on his teammates as they finished up the scrimmage against Brunswick. 


He is also at school Friday.

Breon Dixon, that four-star linebacker from Grayson High tweeted that he has finally decided to re-open his recruitment (https://www.dawgnation.com/football/recruiting/breaking-bulldogs-suffer-a-de-commitment)

Quote
Dixon was the second commitment of the Kirby Smart era back on Christmas Day.

His decision also leaves Georgia with just one commitment at LB for the Class of 2017. The de-commitment drops Georgia’s tally of verbal pledges down to 14...

Which program stacked up more nationally-renowned classes?

The answers, as one might expect, is Georgia.

Let’s tread lightly with all the comparisons for just a second. Georgia freshman Jacob Eason was rated higher coming out of high school than Chad Kelly. Yet not even the staunchest Bulldog advocate would propose the visiting team has the edge at quarterback Saturday morning in Oxford.

There are flaws to this process. Ole Miss tight end Evan Engram was a three-star prospect coming out of Georgia and these charts devalue his influence on the game. The same goes for a key Georgia contributor like Sony Michel. He’s not technically seen as a Georgia starter but his contributions or lack thereof will be a major factor in Saturday’s outcome.

UGA gains a commitment from 4-star Cairo OLB Walter Grant  (https://www.dawgnation.com/football/recruiting/breaking-uga-gains-a-commitment-from-4-star-olb-walter-grant)

Quote
His Syrupmakers had already clinched their region title. The coaching staff knew his knee took a good jolt recently and saw no need to risk anything with the playoffs looming next week.

The night still proved memorable for another reason. Grant — a major UGA recruiting target for 2017 — went to the parent’s corner of the grandstand with the rest of his team for the alma mater. A public address announcer sauntered over and asked him the big question.

Alabama? Georgia?

The nation’s No. 14 OLB prospect had prepared the school band to play both fight songs. He chose to stay with the in-state school.

Grant became UGA’s 16th commitment for the Class of 2017 on Friday night.

Georgia’s starting offensive line had an average weight of 295 pounds, the smallest in the SEC. That doesn’t fly with Chaney’s power run, as was so evident this season. Sam Pittman and the rest of the coaches recruiting linemen have started to rectify this deficiency with commits from the likes of 4-star prospect Andrew Thomas (310 pounds), 4-star recruit Netori Johnson (348), 3-star talent Justin Shaffer (356) and 4-star prospect D’Antne Demery (319). With the addition of the 320-pound Hayes, an offensive line featuring those giants would weigh an average of 330 pounds, almost 15 pounds more than the biggest line in the SEC this season. That’s not even mentioning still uncommitted Pace Academy 4-star target Jamaree Salyer, who seems a good bet to play between the hedges.

And Georgia could still get bigger on the offensive line. MUCH bigger. Five-star offensive tackle Isaiah Wilson (6-7, 350 pounds) took his official visit to Georgia last weekend and announced shortly after that he is moving his planned decision date from Christmas Day to Dec. 16. Michigan and Alabama have been Nos. 1 and 2 for Wilson throughout most of the process, but it seems like a good sign for Georgia that he moved up the date.

Who are the biggest sleepers in UGA’s Class of 2017?
https://www.dawgnation.com/football/biggest-sleepers-ugas-class-2017

Quote
Georgia’s class is loaded, and there isn’t a player in it who wouldn’t be immediately snatched up by some of the biggest programs in the country. But there is a recency bias in recruiting. Players who committed recently are fresher on the mind and typically higher regarded than guys who have been sewn up a while... the gaggle of players at the top of all the recruiting rankings and playing in the national all-star games — like Richard LeCounte III, Jake Fromm and Isaiah Wilson — get a bit more pub...

The following group are the players who have been forgotten in the recruiting shuffle. They’re either ranked in the bottom half of the class, committed long ago or both. But they’re all guys I think can make major contributions when they get to Athens.

***

1) Jaden Hunter, LB — Hunter has been a UGA commit longer than anyone in this class sans LeCounte...

2) Trey Blount, WR — Dawgs are hurting at receiver, so every player who signs at that position is going to have a chance to play...

3) William Poole III, CB — Georgia has been lights out recruiting the secondary this year, but most of the attention has gone to LeCounte, DeAngelo Gibbs and Tray Bishop...

4) Matt Landers, WR — Landers is a far different receiver from Blount and any other wideout currently in UGA’s class. Although he is the lowest-rated player in UGA’s class ... size.

5) Justin Shaffer, OG — It goes to show you just how good UGA’s offensive line recruiting is that a mammoth-sized, 6-5, 35o-pound guard is considered a sleeper

Georgia's coaches aren't allowed to directly name Justin Fields when celebrating his commitment to the program.

But they are allowed to showcase their excitement while keeping his name out of what's written. When Fields, the nation's No. 1 overall recruit, pledged to Georgia Friday, an immediate stream of reactions were let loose.

The best came from offensive line coach Sam Pittman, who let out a lengthy and continuous, "Yes sir!" while shaking some pom-poms.

Jordan Davis commitment (https://www.dawgnation.com/football/recruiting/jordan-davis-commitment-sets-off-interesting-wave-uga-reactions)

Quote
What was that tweet from 4-star WR target Alontae “Tae” Taylor? He welcomed Davis with a quote tweeting his decision.

But. Taylor. Has. Not. Committed. To. Georgia.

He’s actually set to take the first of his four official visits on Saturday to Athens for the Kentucky game.

Is this sort of like watching the ending of “Pulp Fiction” and knowing what happens in the middle of the movie?

Or was he simply just applauding a fellow recruit who finally found the home that every future college student-athlete seeks for themselves?

Georgia appeared to have a tremendous day of recruiting wrapped up. Seventeen players -- six being five-star prospects -- decided to sign their letters-of-intent on the first day of the inaugural national early signing period. In a news conference, head coach Kirby Smart expressed his excitement as national reporters lauded over the class he and his staff put together.

Little did anyone know, as late as 6:30 p.m., that the Bulldogs weren't done.

At 6:38 p.m., Georgia announced on Twitter that it had received its 18th national letter-of-intent from four-star defensive back Nadab Joseph, a player who entered the day committed to Alabama. Nearly two hours later at 8:30 p.m., Georgia landed a verbal pledge from four-star outside linebacker Channing Tindall. Tindall's commitment moved Georgia to the No. 1 recruiting class in the nation.

They must have broke a few donors wallets this recruiting cycle.  That is a big payroll they just brought on.

How good is this @FootballUGA signing class?

TE Luke Ford (No. 63 in the 2018 ESPN 300) signed on Thursday.

Ford would be the highest-ranked commitment for 111 FBS programs.

He’s currently the TENTH-highest ranked recruit in Georgia’s 2018 class.

ICYMI: Alabama's streak of No. 1 recruiting classes is over

Bulldogs secured a commitment from four-star linebacker Quay Walker, who had been committed to the Crimson Tide since June prior to flipping to Georgia Wednesday morning.

Bulldogs had already signed 10 top-100 players entering Wednesday, including six five-star recruits. And they've already added two more big commitments Wednesday -- Walker and five-star cornerback Tyson Campbell.

Walker is the No. 2 outside linebacker and No. 31 overall prospect in this year's recruiting class.
