Georgia Recruiting Reaches Boiling Point

ATHENS - The boiling point for Georgia’s highly-ranked 2015 signing class is nearing.

Now the Bulldogs need to add the final ingredients and keep from anything spilling over. Judging from the last 24 hours that’s going to be a challenge - as usual.

The Bulldogs are depending on keeping all the prospects they have in their commitment class, and this weekend will shed light on if that’s likely or not.

5-star Callaway WR Terry Godwin, who has visited Alabama and Auburn in the last few weeks, could drop in on the final weekend of recruiting in Athens this weekend. Georgia will have its final recruiting visit with Godwin, who is critical to this class, on Wednesday. But Auburn is working like mad to get the final visit of Godwin’s recruiting, which could come on Saturday in west Georgia.

If that happens, according to Scout National Recruiting Analyst Chad Simmons, the Bulldogs should feel comfortable signing Godwin. 4-star GAC WR Darius Slayton also visited Auburn this past weekend, and like Godwin “could” visit Athens this weekend. Georgia visited with Slayton on Monday. Auburn coach Gus Malzahn will visit him today at GAC.

The player to worry the least about is 5-star Westover DL and No. 2 overall player in the country Trenton Thompson, who will sign with Georgia on Wednesday in Albany. Thompson will be the highest-rated player ever to sign with the Bulldogs in the .com era of ratings and rankings.

Meanwhile, 3-star Miami Northwestern (FL) DB Deandre Baker visited Texas over the weekend, and the Horns are pushing hard for him to flip to them over the next seven days. Jeremy Pruitt will visit with Baker today, and the Texas assistants will be in Miami to visit with Baker this week as well. Baker seems to like Georgia most, but some in his family want him to make sure to give Texas a shot.

On the offensive line front - Georgia appears to be surging with Cal commit and 2-star Dunwoody OL Nick Buchanan and former commit and 4-star Franklin (MD) OL Patrick Allen. Allen had been committed to the Bulldogs for some time, but backed away from his commitment after Will Friend left to be the offensive coordinator at Colorado State in December. Buchanan has been committed to the Bears for about a month, but he visited the Bulldogs over the weekend and Simmons reports that Buchanan is “staying in regular contact with the staff right now”.

Simmons said to keep an eye on 3-star Tri-Cities DB Kirby Choates, who could visit Georgia this weekend. JUCO RB Chris Carson visited Oklahoma State over the weekend, but he should sign with the Bulldogs. Carson is visiting Georgia unofficially this weekend.
