UGA Hosting 5 Official Visitors

ATHENS - Georgia's big recruiting weekend is two weeks away, but tons of talent will be on hand this weekend.

4-star Texas DB Jared Mayden, 4-star Florida DB Chauncey Gardner, 4-star Texas RB Devwah Whaley, 4-star Virginia WR Grant Holloway and 3-star Texas WR and Georgia commit Davion Curtis will all officially visit the Bulldogs this weekend. 

Curtis picked the Bulldogs over the summer saying: “I like Georgia because they are a pro-style offense. They are very diverse and they bring a lot to the table. They have had a lot of receivers go into the league. They said I am quick and I can play both positions slot and outside, so I am very excited about them.”

Mayden officially visited Michigan last week, but is “firmly” committed to Oregon. 

Still, Mayden is close friends with Georgia commit Chad Clay. 

"Clay says a lot of good things about Georgia,” Mayden said. “So he has me wanting to come check it out for myself." 

Gardner, a Florida commit, is looking around, but insiders feel he will stick with the Gators in the end. Whaley had more than 1,300 yards rushing last season. He’s being pursued by Oklahoma and Texas A&M among others. It would be interesting to see how much interest Georgia has in him with the recent commitment of Elijah Holyfield. Holloway visited Virginia last week for the Cavs’ painful last-minute loss to Notre Dame. But Georgia, Virginia Tech, Florida and Oregon are considered the favorites to land the native of the Commonwealth.

But the biggest visitors might be the unofficial visitors in Athens. Former commit E.J. Price, Archer WR Kyle Davis, Archer ATH Jamyest Williams, Lanier DL Derrick Brown, Cedar Grove DL Antwuan Jackson, North Carolina OL Landon Dickerson, 2019 WR Dominick Blaylock, 2017 DB William Poole, 2017 RB Anthony McFarland, Jr., 2017 DB Stanford Samuels and 2017 DB Richard LeCounte.

Look for Brown and Davis to get the most attention from the Bulldogs’ staff.
