Recruits w/ Heavy Praise for Georgia
Five Questions: Giant Recruiting Weekend
Here is a quick and brief rundown of some highlights from the weekend.
Pat Allen called his visit to Athens “tremendous”. Chad Simmons went on to add that Allen should firm up his commitment to Georgia any day. “Allen LOVED it again in Athens,” Simmons said. “I am only hearing his commitment to UGA is as strong as ever.”
Meanwhile USC commit and McEachern OL Chuma Edoga took in the visit to Athens over the weekend, and the Bulldogs still seem in the ballgame for him. “It is not over,” Simmons said of Edoga. “Do not expect Edoga to say too much about his visit, but trust me on this one, inside he is thinking a lot about Georgia right now.”
Roquan Smith, who is considered a must-get by Bulldog insiders, visited Georgia over the weekend and visited most with 5-star DL Trenton Thompson. The Macon County LB got lots of love over the weekend. “He is a TOP target for the Dawgs and he knows it,” Simmons said. “He is close with multiple commits. He is VERY comfortable in Athens, and the Dawgs are trending in a big way here.”
Ronnie Harrison, who is committed to Alabama, but lives in Florida, had a great trip to Athens. Georgia has already flipped one prospect from the Tide this season (J. Ledbetter) and are looking to do it again. “Georgia is in this game and it is a true threat to Alabama,” Simmons said. “Pruitt has made Harrison a priority, the two talk regularly, and the Dawgs have made a strong push at the four-star safety out of Tallahassee.”
Georgia is doing a ton of planning for the 2016 class, which already has several high-level commitments. Ben Cleveland, Chauncey Manac, JaQua Daniels, Levonta Taylor and Malek Young were among the many 2016 prospects in attendance. “Georgia has put the offers out there. They are staying on the top juniors, and it will pay off in the coming months,” Simmons said.
