UGA Weekly Recruiting Overview - Big Decisions Upcoming

The great thing about fall camp starting is obvious........................FOOTBALL IS HERE!!! One of the negatives is that recruiting slows down somewhat due to another dead period in place for the month of August. We're going to swith this month to a once a week recruiting overview. Prospects can still talk to coaching staffs, but there can't be any visits on or off campus. They can also do whatever they want as far as announcing commitments and such. Many players are doing just that before th

Looking Back - 2017 Running Backs - How Did Georgia Do?

We could talk about the history of running backs at The University of Georgia until we're blue in the face. Most Dawg fans could recite names, awards, and stats in their sleep. The prestige of the running back position at UGA is unmatched. As Ric Flair would say, "often imitated, but never duplicated". We can go on and on talking about the RB-U tradition at Georgia, but I'm going to end this introduction like D'Andre Swift's dad was ready to end the Auburn Tigers: Georgia identified D'

Looking Ahead - 2024 Running Backs, Who Do We Want?

The University of Georgia is RB-U. That's the statement. That's it. With the storied history of running backs that came through UGA, one would think that the Dawgs could pull any running back in the country that they want. That simply has not been the case in 2023. Alabama also has a big history of star running backs, so it isn't s surprise when a player chooses the Crimson Tide. Let's be honest, they're in a dynasty right now, so we shouldn't be shocked when someone like five star running back

Weekly Recruiting Preview - Commit Watch

And there it is..........................just when the dead period is over and we're having fun again with recruits on campus, another dead period starts for the month of August. That doesn't mean recruiting stops though; it never rests. Kirby Smart and company just had a ton of 2023 and 2024 prospects on campus for their 'Dawg Days of Summer' event. That's the last chance the guys had to visit before it's time for Gameday visits. While there won't be any recruits on campus, there will stil

Looking Back - 2018 Receivers - How Did Georgia Do?

The University of Georgia is known for having some of the best running backs in the history of college football. From Herschel Walker to Nick Chubb, there's no college football program around that can compare to the excellence that has come from that position in Athens, Georgia. Each player that has come through and toted the rock for the Georgia Bulldogs did it with their own unique capabilities. Each recruit that comes in understands the importance of continuing the tradition set by the absolu

Weekly Recruiting Review - You Win Some and You Lose Some

Recruiting would be much less entertaining if you could just make a list of the exact 25-30 prospects you want every year and they just sign on the dotted line in December and February. I'm sure there are some days that Kirby Smart wishes he could do that. There are some days that my nerves wish the Dawgs could do that very thing. That would take away all of the fun and the intrigue. It would take away all of the passion for the fans and the recruiting staffs, not to mention the recruits. We're

Official Dawgs Central Prediction/Player Eval for 3* Receiver Yazeed Haynes

If you look at the commit list for Georgia for the 2023 class, you'll notice that it's loaded with highly ranked defensive prospects. From Joenel Aguero to Gabe Harris, the Dawgs will have a top of the line defense for years to come. You'll also notice that the list of offensive commits includes tight ends, offensive linemen, and one receiver. Raymond Cottrell is the lone pass catcher of the group and one of the longest committed players. He's going to need some help chasing down those dimes fro

Looking Ahead - 2024 Quarterbacks, Who Do We Want?

One thing UGA is known for under Kirby Smart is having a plan A, B, C, D, and E for recruiting every position. He and his staff have proved it year after year. They rarely put all their eggs in one basket for a prospect. Of course that hasn't been the case this year, as the Dawgs went all out for Arch Manning. Unfortunately, he recently chose Texas over our beloved Dawgs. Many fans will see this as a big mess up by the staff, but did the ten million dollar a year national championship head coach

Official Dawgs Central Prediction - Caleb Downs

In-state safety Caleb Downs has been a top target for Georgia for the majority of his recruitment. UGA has made him a priority target for not only his position, but for the 2023 class as a whole. The 5* safety is one of the most college ready prospects in this class. His speed, athleticism, anticipation, and football IQ are all off the charts. These factors make him an almost can't miss for the Dawgs. Kirby Smart and company would love to pair him with fellow 5* safety and recent commit, Joenel

Weekly Recruiting Preview - Dead Period is Over

The dead period is over for a week! It is now a "quiet period" on the NCAA calendar. This means that there can be no off-campus contact, but prospects can visit the schools. These visits have to be unofficial visits, as no officials are allowed during this period. Another dead period is set for the month of August, so expect a great deal of visitors to Athens and scross the country this week. One top target that has confirmed his trip to Athens is 2024 5* corner Ellis Robinson, who plans to

Looking Back - 2018 Defensive Tackle - How Did Georgia Do?

It's always fun to look back and review the recruiting choices that Georgia made. There are always going to be guys that you can look back on and say "man, I wish we would have gone after him", especially in-state guys. We're never going to say UGA was wrong in signing a player that came to Athens and gave his all to help the team. If they came here, put in the work, stayed out of trouble, then I believe they deserve some respect for that. We'll never be the type of site to bash our own, whether

Weekly Recruiting Review - Dawg Fans Got a Shocker and Three Big Commits

The third full week in July may have been the craziest week of them all for Dawg fans. There were plenty of commitments, rumors of commitments, rumors of flips, and everything else you could think of. If you follow recruiting closely, it was enough to you busy all day chasing down news. That's why we at Dawgs Central do our best to chase down the news for you. One commitment that NOBODY was ready for was that of Justice Haynes. It's not the date that was the shocker, it's the fact that he c

Official Dawgs Central Prediction/Player Eval for 5* Safety Joenel Aguero

One position group The University of Georgia should have no problem recruiting is the secondary group. Top targets should be fighting to learn under  Kirby Smart as the Head Coach, along with Will Muschamp and Fran Brown on Staff. The trio gives UGA one of the best, if not the best coaching tandems in the nation. Even before Muschamp and Brown arrived, there has never really been a problem getting the best of the best coenerbacks to play their college ball in Athens. While safety recruiting

Official Dawgs Central Prediction/Player Eval for 4* Offensive Lineman Kelton Smith

One thing UGA fans have been forced to get used to with offensive line recruiting is change. Sam Pittman came on board with Kirby Smart's inagural staff and proved to be a monster recruiter. He helped produce multiple NFL draft picks, such as Lamont Gallaird in 2019. Andrew Thomas (Pick 4) and Isaiah Wilson (Pick 29) both went in the first round of the 2020 NFL draft, while Solomon Kindley was drafted in the 4th round (Pick 111). In 2021, Ben Cleveland was drafted in the 3rd round with the 94th

Weekly Recruiting Preview - Dawgs Will Get Better This Week

Even after yesterday's surprising news, It's obvious with the way the recruiting calendar is set up that July is now the biggest month for commitments. UGA and pretty much every other major program have watched their commit lists grow. Of course NIL (name, image, and likeness) is now playing a huge part, with teams like Texas and Miami buying players left and right. It was Texas A&M with the 2022 class, pulling in the highest ranked recruiting class in history while producing a 8-4 record in

Looking Back - 2019 Running Back - How Did Georgia Do?

Every Sunday from here on out, I'm going to go back and see how UGA fared on the recruiting trail according to how our payers' stats stand up against top targets that went elsewhere. Of course this isn't meant to be anything to diminish our guys or how much they mean to our program. They're Dawgs and we appreciate every single one of them. We just want to see how UGA's choice stacks up against guys that wanted to come here and we didn't have room and guys that chose to go elsewhere. We probably

UGA Recruiting - Weekly Review

The second week in July proved to be a big one for the Georgia Bulldogs. There have been over 100 commitments so far in the month and the Dawgs have been a big part of it. While there was only one added to the 2023 commit list this past week, it was a very important piece to the puzzle. On the 10th, Raylen Wilson did what everyone was expecting and Committed to the G! Wilson is a 4* linebacker and one of the most athletic, if not the most athletic at his position. This athleticism combined

Official Dawgs Central Prediction/Player Eval for 4* Linebacker Troy Bowles

The University of Georgia just put three linebackers in the NFL draft this year. The trio of Quay Walker (Round 1, Pick 22), Nakobe Dean (Round 3, Pick 83), and Channing Tindall (Round 3, Pick 102) might just be the best to come out of Athens in the same year. Azeez Ojulari (Round 2, Pick 50) and Monty Rice (Round 3, Pick 92) were big picks for UGA in 2021. Tae Crowder was Mr Irrelevent in as the 255th pick in the seventh round in 2020. D'Andre Walker was drafted by the Titans in the fifth round

Dawgs Central Prediction - Dawgs Will Get Big Man in the MIddle

As everyone is well aware, one of the keys to UGA's historic defense last season was Jordan Davis. His 6'6 340 pound frame took multiple offensive linemen to block, freeing up those around him. He also made plenty of plays himself in the backfield and running sideline to sideline. Kirby Smart and company have found Jordan Davis 2.0 in 6'6 350 pound Jamaal Jarrett. The similarities only start at their size. Both are from North Carolina, Jarrett is athletic like Davis, they have similar footwork,

Another Commit for the Dawgs!

This summer has been smoking hot for The University of Georgia. The Dawgs saw hundreds of prospects from across the country make their way to Athens in the month of June. Kirby Smart and company have also seen multiple commits in multiple classes since the start of the summer. Many were planned, but a couple of the commits were somwhat of a surprise. The latest commit for Georgia fits every description mentioned above. He visited in June, he's now committed in July, and his commitment is a

Busy Week for UGA in Recruiting

It's been a whirlwind of a start for us here at Dawgs Central. Note to self - don't start a new website the same month official visits begin! We've tried so far to keep you updated on all the comings and goings with all of the top targets visiting and many committing. It will make it easier to do this by publishing a weekly recruiting preview. This will allow you to see everything already scheduled for the week without having to scroll through a bunch of forum posts. While the Dawgs receive

Dawgs Add a Big Piece to the Puzzle

July is turning into the biggest recruiting month of the year, as commitments are pouring in for most of the top college football programs across the country. This is after thousands of prospects flocked to campuses for official visits in June. Many of these guys are now wanting to get their commitment over so that they can concentrate on their senior seasons.  Count the Georgia Bulldogs in on the fun! The Dawgs have a great chance to add as many as eight total commits this month. One was a

Dawgs Central Prediction - Georgia Will Add Another DB

A couple of months ago Justyn Rhett decommitted from Notre Dame while on a visit to UGA. Not long after that, he was officially a Dawg. He was the only DB on the current commit list up until June 16th, when AJ Harris jumped on board. Georgia previously had in-state DB Kain Lee committed, but he's been off the board for a while and recently committed to Ohio State. Look for the Dawgs to take 5 total in the secondary. It will likely be three corners and two safeties, according to who wants to
