Dawg Post catches up with a few recruits to get their reaction on Georgia's big win over Auburn.

Georgia commit Andrew Thomas:

"It was an amazing atmosphere and the win was incredible. The best part was celebrating with the team in the locker room. The coaches and players were going crazy."

Georgia commit Jaden Hunter:

I loved the atmosphere and everything. It was electrifying. I can't wait to suit up!"


2017 Grayson DB Deangelo Gibbs:

"Athens is a special place. Go Dawgs!"

2018 DB target Stanford Samuels tweeted:

"Had a great day with my brudda Richard LeCounte!

2019 Grayson DB Kenyatta Watson:

"I thought the game was great." Watson said. "They never quit and kept fighting. I got to meet with coach Smart and coach Tucker before the game for about 30 minutes with my parents and my mom is sold on them. I really want that offer and I think it may come in the spring. The coaches told me I looked good and and it looked like I got taller and put on weight. They understand I play behind Deangelo Gibbs but they know I'm a really good player. They like me at cornerback. It was good to see a lot of the other recruits too. I spoke with Jaden Hunter, Malik Washington, Sam Wray, Richard LeCounte, and Trevor Lawrence."

2019 Grayson LB Owen Pappoe:

"Georgia played hard the whole game." Pappoe said. "It was a great win. I got to chill with some of the recruits who were there and got to catch up with the coaches as well. I spoke with coach Smart, coach Sherrer, and coach Tucker. The recruits I spoke with were Deangelo Gibbs, Jamyest Williams, Malik Herring, and Richard LeCounte."

2019 LB Nolan Smith:

"My visit was fun and I loved it. The fans are always loud and I was able to speak with the outside linebackers coach while I was there."

2019 DB Jaylen McCollough:

"That was a very big win for Georgia. It shows the fight that they have as a team. It shows that coach Smart has them focused enough for 4 quarters." 

2019 DB Malik Washington:

"The win was exciting!" Washington said. "I was actually sitting next to a couple commits who were hype (Richard LeCounte, Jake Fromm, and Jaden Hunter). I sat with a few coaches and overall had a great time. I spoke with coach Mel Tucker, one of the linebacker coaches, and I was able to meet head coach Kirby Smart. They all told me to keep balling and keep my grades up and everything will fall in place and they haven't forgotten about me.

2019 TE Ryland Goede:

"Ya man that was a crazy game!" Goede said. "It was a fun atmosphere and it was awesome getting to go in the locker room after the game and talk with the coaches and feel the excitement. They have a lot of good and new things going on over there and you can definitely feel it. And man these fans are UNREAL!! I couldn't hear myself think. And the staff is just so good at recruiting. They make you feel at home no matter if it's your first or fifth time there."

Former players on the win:

Jordan Jenkins tweeted:

"It's Great to be a Georgia Bulldog!! Wearing all my Georgia gear in these meetings tonight!!"

John Theus tweeted:
