Dawg Post Recruiting Scoop

With National Signing Day less than a month away, what are guys like Arden Key, Javaris Davis and Rico McGraw doing before they make their commitment?

Rather than spending the last weekend before signing day in Athens, Arden Key will now be using that time for an official visit to Auburn, Chad Simmons reports. And whether or not Key reschedules that visit is still to be determined. According to Simmons, D’Andre Walker’s commitment to the Bulldogs is rumored cause for some apprehension by Key.

Javaris Davis, a four-star athlete out of Jacksonville, chatted for some time with Jeremy Pruitt on Monday, according to Simmons. Davis, who is related to former Georgia Bulldog Bryan Evans, is currently scheduled to visit Georgia the weekend before signing day. Though he is being recruited as a slot receiver and athlete by many schools, Pruitt is looking for him to fill a corner position.

Roquan Smith, the four-star linebacker out of Montezuma, Georgia, seems to still be leaning towards the Dawgs. Simmons was told by several prospects in Orlando last week that he is going to be putting on a Georgia hat come Feb. 4.

Rico McGraw, yet another four-star corner that Pruitt has his eyes on, will take his official to UGA on Jan. 16. McGraw and Pruitt have a great, close relationship, but sometimes there is more to getting a kid to ink than just one relationship, as Simmons pointed out on The Porch. McGraw will head over to Tuscaloosa for his official with Alabama in the time between his OV at Georgia and signing day.

Last but not least, Jacob Eason, the four-star signal-caller out of Lake Stevens, Washington. According to Simmons, he is “All Dawg.” With Mike Bobo leaving, many were concerned with how that move would affect Eason’s commitment, but he trust that Richt will get the right replacement for Bobo. Simmons said he was “very impressive at the Elite 50” and had the best arm and the most upside of anyone there.
