Smart Pressing for Elite 2016 Recruits

ORLANDO, FL - Chad Simmons' exclusive notes from the 2016 Under Armour All–America Game.

--  E.J. Price really likes Pittman...  Has had a few conversations with him and Kirby Smart recently.  UGA will likely not get an OV from Price, but have to still be considered the favorite.  Oklahoma has his attention, and Auburn as of now is set to receive his last OV on Jan 29.  There has been some chatter if he is even a take at AU right now, but I think he is.  

 

--  UGA on the outside looking in for former RB commit Devwah Whaley.  Texas considered team to beat...  He has an in-home scheduled for January with Chaney right, now and he said the new RB coach is likely visiting him too.

 

--  Mack Wilson will be on campus Jan 15 and he will give UGA a look...  Still considered somewhat of a longshot right now, but Kirby has the Dawgs in this one.  He says UF leads, but I still say Bama is on top.

 

--  Georgia will get the final OV from Michail Carter, a BIG target for the Dawgs.  He has set officials to Clemson Jan 15, GT Jan 22, and then UGA Jan 29.  Alabama and Auburn will get mid-week visits.  Still considered to be a Bama-Georgia race right now.

 

--  Willie Allen says he is about 80-85 percent sure of what school he wants to go to.  That is LSU.  Georgia is running 2 right now with Ole Miss 3 based on what I have heard recently.  He says he could commit this week.  His OV to LSU is scheduled for Jan 15.

 

--  Former Bama commit Shyheim Carter has no OVs set for January yet...  Considered a Bama lean by some, but Ole Miss is right there as well...  UGA running third right now based on what I have gathered.  If Kirby and the Dawgs get him on campus in Jan, it will be something to keep an eye because things could change.
