Dawgs, SEC get ready for recruiting home stretch

Tennessee and Georgia host the most recruits this weekend in the SEC with 8 and 6 respectfully. As usual the recruiting sweepstakes is coming down to the final weeks, and this week schools like Auburn and Tennessee try to steal commitments from the likes of Georgia and Oklahoma.

This weekend, Georgia tries to hold on to Demario Minter and try to seal the deal with Brandon Jefferies and Kelvin Grant. Grant and Jefferies are both from the Carolinas, and the Dawgs are battling a plethora of teams to get them. 

In the case of Grant, Georgia is competing mainly with South Carolina. The Gamecocks are themselves having a good recruiting season, and Grant would complement the Carolina roster well considering the depth of Cock receivers. 

Grant enjoyed his visit to Columbia and told Jamie Newberg of Newberg Recruiting.com, "I had a really good visit to South Carolina. The campus was way better than I thought, and they have great fans."

However, Grant would be the 5th wide receiver committed to the Cocks, and only the second if he were to commit to the Dawgs.

Jefferies, the second ranked offensive lineman in the country according to The Insiders/CNNSI, is deciding between South and North Carolina, as well as the Dawgs, Tennessee, and NC State. 

Considering the age of the offensive line for Georgia, Jefferies would, no doubt, be considered for playing time quickly. 

But Georgia still has to hold to a player that has committed to the Red and Black. Last week, Leonard Pope visited Gainesville and confirmed after the visit that he was sticking with the Dawgs. This week, Demario Minter, a Georgia commit, is visiting Auburn. He is one of only two recruits in Auburn this weekend. Dawg fans are holding their breath until he makes it back across the state border and announces that he is still a Georgia commit.
