    A lot of pressure applied by UGA on this one. Basically told if you want a spot, you better grab it. His recruiting isn’t over.

    You are correct, I doubt it is either.

    That’s weird we didn’t get an IMG kid we “led” for. (Sarcasm)

    Have felt (and said) all along we were at best 2nd on his list. Let’s learn from our past mistakes when we stayed after kids for 9, 10 and even 11 months and then missed on others that were just as good because we kept chasing. Gotta stop chasing Georgia’s take the offer now approach is actually a pretty solid approach when you consider based on recent history that Georgia won’t stop with just one good back in the class.
    Let’s hope we’ve paid enough/shown enough attention/love to whoever was next on our board.

    The theme on top shelf rb recruits we want going elsewhere continues...Hope y’all are right and that it isn’t over. Can’t help but see a consistent pattern in regards to rb recruiting

    We need to beat them. They’ve won 3 years in a row - we turn that around and start playing in Atlanta again and this will change

    I think those type of recruiting tactics can result in a lot of short term wins for a popular program, but often don't end well in the long run because you get a higher number of disgruntled kids. And we are probably already seeing that at Georgia with all their internal strife the last couple of years.

    There comes a time when coaches need to let a kid know they need a decision, because others want in, but when you abuse that type of tactic when it is not yet needed then it is a different story.

    Bingo. Applying heavy pressure on in state HS coaches, administrators, local officials etc. is a big part of their strategy... and it has been very effective. But it has also bit them in the ass with some. There are a handful of schools in GA that have been turned off by it and prefer not to deal with them ...Grayson, Bainbridge and Archer among them.

    Many selling points for a RB to georgia. But how much is it to do with not being good at recruiting RBs?

    I'm hearing rumors about a possible FLIP away from UGA to some other school that's in a way cooler state. ;);)
