Georgia holding steady as nation’s No. 7 class


The April summary and forecast for Georgia? Sunny with a slight chance of a high caliber commitment. When you’re the Bulldogs, you always have a chance to landing the next ‘big one’.

Five players have come aboard since New Years Day, and four of the player son board are considered four-star prospects–including coveted five-star ‘athlete’ Terry Godwin, a speedster who could play at receiver or cornerback.He is rated the No. 20 overall prospect in America.

And when it comes to who is next, keep the name Trent Thompson tucked away in your memory banks. Even the “Joe Average” Georgia fans will know this name soon enough. He’s the No. 1 overall prospect in America, he’s from Georgia, and he likes the Bulldogs a lot.

Stay tuned, recruiting will warm up considerably in Athens.

  • The state of Georgia is loaded with talent this year. It’ll be a very exciting year for recruiting, especially if the Dawgs can have some success this season.

  • Other than maybe Texas , there’s not another state in the U.S. that Highschool football rules. It is handsdown the best football state for producing SEC and D1 type players. UGA could just recruit the state and “cherrypick” a few stand-out out-of-staters and finish in the top 5 every year. In all aspects of college football. Recruiting, wins, etc. They just can’t seem to get the big prize? But it’s NOT a lack of talent.

  • What Georgia has done in the past decade, is move away from dominating line play. Unlike Dooley or even Donnan coached teams. There was a time when UGA simply beat you in the trenches. Now days they play a more “skilled position” 5 and 4 star type running backs, QB’s , LB’s etc.And simply out skill you. This is obvious in the type football players Richt recruits.
