Recruits w/ Heavy Praise for Georgia

ATHENS - Georgia’s fans weren’t the only ones impressed with what they saw Saturday night.

High-level recruits flocked to Athens to watch Georgia dismantle Auburn 34-7. Georgia hosted eight players on their official visits: Pat Allen, Jonathan Ledbetter, Natrez Patrick, Johnathan Abram, Albert Huggins, Ronnie Harrison, Chuma Edoga and top prospect Josh Sweat.

Sweat was likely Georgia’s top target of the official visitors. The Bulldogs are in a three-way fight with Virginia Tech and Florida State for the 5-star defensive end from Chesapeake, VA. He will visit Tennessee next weekend.

Insiders say the Bulldogs will still have a difficult time pulling Edoga away from his commitment from USC. But he visited nonetheless with a few teammates from McEachern.

Allen, Ledbetter, Patrick and Abram are all committed to the Bulldogs, and this visit should firm up their commitments to Georgia.

But the Bulldogs may have cemented the commitment of Allen, who told Chad Simmons last week "I would say my commitment to Georgia is about 60-percent right now. I just want to get down there for my official visit and make sure of everything."

After the visit this weekend, Allen called his trip "tremendous."

Meanwhile scores of prospects from 2015, 2016 and beyond were in Athens taking in the game. 5-star DL Trenton Thompson showed 4-star LB Roquan Smith around Athens. Thompson is thought to be key to Smith’s recruitment for the Bulldogs.

Committed Bulldogs on unofficial visits included: Chauncey Manac, Rashad Roundtree, Sage Hardin, Jackson Harris, Ben Cleveland, Jayson Stanley and Justin Young.

Manac, a 2016 commit from Clinch County, was firm about how he feels about his school.

“UGA is the only way,” he tweeted.

Uncommitted young prospects Levonta Taylor (5-star, top 2016 ATH from Virginia), Malek Young (3-star 2016 DB from FL), Isaac Nauta (4-Star TE from Buford), Chidi Okeke-Valentine (4-star OL from Stockbridge), Chad Clay (4-star DB from Peachtree Ridge), JaQua Daniels (4-star RB from Clarke Central), Rocky Reid (3-Star RB from NC who is committed to Tennessee and Breon Dixon (top 2017 LB from Peachtree Ridge)

Dixson said he was impressed by the atmosphere at Sanford Stadium.

“Athens Atmosphere crazy,” he tweeted.

Young, a 2016 DB from Pompano Beach, was direct and correct with his commentary on twitter.

“Its cold,” Young said. “Georgia Destroyed Auburn.”

Clay tweeted: “The Georgia game was crazy.”
