UGA Recruiting Updates: Thursday Update

ATHENS - Georgia coach Kirby Smart will host four official visitors this weekend separate from the annual Gala. But those four won’t be the only recruits in town.

Chad Simmons is reporting that commits Jacob Eason, Ben Cleveland, Chris Barnes and uncommitted offensive lineman Willie Allen will all be on their official visits this weekend. 

"I will be leaving for Georgia Friday morning,” Allen told Simmons. “I will miss the old coaches, but I think coach Smart will do great there.  I know Georgia is stopping by to see me tomorrow (Thursday) too, so it will be good to be around them for a little while.”

Allen told Simmons that he won’t make his final decision until Signing Day.  

That foursome will be joined by a slew of recruits that includes at least the following players: Mecole Hardman, Tyler Simmons, Elijah Holyfield, Julian Rochester, Chad Clay and 2017 Archer ATH Jamyest Williams. 

“Smart wants to get many of those guys together now hoping they all come together again on an official list as a class on signing day,” Simmons said of the talent amassing in Athens over the weekend.

Meanwhile UGA commit Jaleel Laguins will take an official visit to LSU over the weekend. He’s expected to still sign with the Bulldogs, but he’s just “making sure he has options” according to Simmons.
