After an embarrassing loss to rival Georgia Tech, the staff has hit the road to focus on recruiting. There seems to be a lack of leadership on this 2016 team, so it's no surprise that the staff wen to see two of their most loyal commits, quarterback Jake Fromm, and safety Richard LeCounte.
"Glad @CoachSchuUGA (coach Glen Schumann) and @Coach_mtucker (coach Mel Tucker) got the chance to stop by tonight! #912" was tweeted out by LeCounte last night after visiting with the coaches. LeCounte jumped on board last year and has been recruiting hard for Georgia ever since. He has been the leader of this class and will continue to do so. The 6-foot-1 186-pound safety bring athleticism and ball skills to the secondary which is much needed, especially is starter Dominick Sanders does not return to the team next season. LeCounte is the top safety prospect in Georgia and the number 39 overall player in the 2017 class
.Quarterback Jake Fromm has capped off a great senior season, although his Bears team did not make the playoffs. He put up mind boggling high school numbers the past few years, but now his focus is on UGA. He also received a visit from the staff last night. "Thankful @KirbySmartUGA (Kirby Smart) and @JimChaneyUGA (Jim Chaney) stopped by and had dinner with the fam. Can't wait to play for these guys. #GoDawgs" was tweeted by Fromm last night. Fromm deccommitted from Alabama after receiving an ofer from Georgia, his dream school. Fromm will enroll at Georgia in January and will start as the backup to starter Jacob Eason in the spring. Fromm is the second ranked quarterback in Georgia behind GAC's Davis Mills, and ranked the 29th overall prospect in the country in 2017.
According to recruiting analyst Chad Simmons, offensive line coach Sam Pittman met with commit Netori Johnson last night and the visit went very well. Johnson is a massive guard prospect who moves well for his size, and one who might be expected to play as early as next season. He certainly has the size the coaches are looking for, and has the mass to be a mauler in the run game. It's extremely important for the staff to hold onto his commitment, as well as add one more crucial tackle prospect in tis class.
Simmons has also confirmed more visits from the staff in the next few days. On Monday, coaches are expected to meet with commits D'Andre Swift and Mark Webb, along with targets Markaviest Bryant and Jeremiah Holloman. The staff will meet with Deangelo Gibbs on Tuesday, a major targets and one of the top undecided recruits in the country.
