    I thought it was kinda weird/strange that UGA has only 14 commits for 2020 (per Rivals). Any news on what the deal is? Silient commits, late start, recent decommits? Just wondering as most other teams in the top 20 have at least 20 queued up.

    They're in the running for a lot of the top guys that like to drag out their recruitment and make a spectacle.

    They say that they have lots of interested top rated players and "silent" commitments already.

    Let's see what the departure of Pittman has on them. He was one of their top recruiters.

    We're limited on spots this year. Will probably only sign 23.

    Assuming nothing falls through we are likely about to hire Matt Luke, which should mitigate the loss of Pittman at least somewhat on the recruiting side. SP was a great recruiter for us though, no doubt about that. Although his focus was almost exclusively on the OL recruits.

    How does this help FLORIDA with Darnell Washington? He was down to UF & UGA.

    BREAKING: Major UGA target Theo Johnson has made his college choice


    Georgia was in need of some good news this week. That opportunity was available on Monday with the commitment of elite TE target Theo Johnson.

    That moment, however, will only feel like the last few days for DawgNation.

    Johnson chose Penn State on Monday.

    The nation’s No. 3 TE and No. 83 overall prospect (per the 247Sports Composite ratings) announced his decision from a live ceremony at Holy Names School in Ontario.

    He's not down to UF and UGA, it's UGA, Miami, and Tennessee. We're just trying to get some traction with him but I wouldn't put too much thought into it.

    Theo was never going to UGA, it was always PSU in the lead

    funny thing is all 3 think they are getting him. UF has Odom, maybe Beckwith (numbers) and look good for 2021.

    Mullen and English were in home with Washington. They talked up using him like they use Kyle Pitts to create mismatches. At almost 6'8" he would be a nightmare to guard.

    The only team on that list who I feel has a shot to actually use him as a mismatch is Tennessee. They're good at slipping their TEs in a seam. Like Florida, they prioritize it.

    Miami also uses their TE, but their offense is so backwards, it doesn't matter.

    When the kid tweeted he appreciated our honesty, our coaching staff may have advised him that our TE coach may be moving on to another opportunity in the future. That ties to some of recent speculation here.
