Dean's List What to Watch for in July

Dean Legge counts down his top five things to watch for in recruiting in July.

July is moving month for Georgia's recruiting calendar. A slew of prospects have already committed to the Dawgs, and the list for 2015 is starting to take shape. The Mark Richt Camp took place in June, which sets the stage for the all-important Dawg Night on July 12th.

Georgia has traditionally done a good job of shifting through recruits in July – taking the final commitments before the season kicks off in August. With that said, here is a look at five things to watch for in July recruiting at Georgia.

Marist offensive or defensive lineman Kendall Baker will commit on July 3rd. Baker will decide between Auburn, Florida State, Georgia, Georgia Tech, or Vanderbilt on July 3. Right now the Bulldogs seem to be the team to beat, but keep an eye on Auburn.

North Carolina lineman Lamont Gaillard is scheduled to visit Georgia with his mother on July 6th. The Bulldogs appear to be the leader over Clemson, North Carolina and South Carolina. Georgia has led for Gaillard since the spring, and this will be his third trip to Athens during recruiting.

Lowndes offensive lineman Dyshon Sims jumped into the recruiting limelight in the spring evaluation period. Alabama, Florida State and Georgia are in a three-way fight for Sims. Georgia offered first and is the school Sims liked growing up; his cousin Josh Harvey-Clemons is a defensive starter for the Bulldogs, too. Still, Alabama is a major hurdle for Georgia to jump for Sims.

Stockbridge cornerback Kendarius Webster has been very quiet and tough to read, but the chatter about his leaning has been towards Georgia of late. Webster likes Ole Miss is a lot and Florida State is in the game, too, but Georgia is a school he is closest to, and the Dawgs are a legit contender.

Rutland wide receiver Shakenneth Williams had an impressive outing at the the Mark Richt Camp in June, and Georgia offered that day. The Bulldogs instantly became the school to beat with South Carolina and Vanderbilt as two to watch.
