One thing I have learned is a lot of recruiting followers don't necessarily care to read a lot of fluff in an article. They just want to know who was here and who we're getting. Saying that, let's just get down to it:
The biggest visitor for the weekend for me (literally and figuratively) was Jamaal Jarrett. Jordan Davis was brought in to speak with the recruits, but it wasn't an accident that he was brought in on Jarrett's weekend. I've been told that it couldn't have gone any better with Jarrett and his family. While nothing is ever a lock in recruiting and these guys could always choose to stay at home (his former Grimsley teammate Travis Shaw did last year), UGA is is a very very good spot here. He may be done with visits and there's a good chance this one will be over in July!

The only five star in town this past weekend was Joenel Aguero, who was a UGA lean (silent commit) coming in. Will Muschamp has been HUGE here. Like we said above, nothing is ever a lock in recruiting but I would be very surprised here if he isn't a Dawg when he commits on July 23rd.

Another top target UGA was in good shape with coming into the visit was Tyler Williams. Kirby Smart and staff may have just closed it down enough this past weekend to secure his commitment. Clemson will obviously still fight for him, but mom wants UGA from what I'm told.

Troy Bowles is a little bit harder to get a read on. Of course his dad knows the football world, so it will probably continue to be hard to get a good read here. I can say that UGA feels pretty confident here. I can also say that the word is he absolutely loves Glenn Schumann. Both have the same type of football IQ. This could come down to UGA and either Ohio State or Oklahoma.

Anthony Evans is a prospect who I believe is higher on UGA than what people think. I honestly haven't heard much about his visit, but I have been told other coaching staffs are negative recruiting the hell out of UGA and receiver production. If I had to guess now, I would say this is between UGA and Oklahoma. It will also be interesting to see how high he is on our board. Not comfortable enough for a prediction yet, but I would probably lean Oklahoma if I had to guess.
Let's just get down to the nitty gritty on Kelton Smith. UGA was trending big coming in and I was told he is a silent commit. He was set to be in town yesterday with Carver for the 7on7. This one could go public at any time.

Things seemed to pick up with Shamurad Umarov since Coach Searels was hired. And that's all I really know about him. Of course you're going to hear things like "he loved it" and "UGA knocked the visit out of the park", but everyone does if they're doing their jobs right. My guess is that he ends up somewhere else, but that's strictly a guess.
The recruitment of RyQueze McElderry is one of the more interesting ones. He continues to take visits and he continues to say the right things about UGA. Of course coming off of a UGA visit, the talk is going to be about how strong of a commit he is now and how he is a more solid commit. It still wouldn't surprise me if he ended up staying in-state.
PREDICTION: sticks with UGA

One position that could get very interesting and very fast is at linebacker. I think that is a reason that CJ Allen is moving his recruitment date up. You have Allen and then Bowles mentioned above. Add Raylen Wilson and Tony Rojas as top targets, plus Grayson Howard visiting this past weekend. That's 5 guys for likely 3 spots. Who do you say no to? The thing is (not just looking through red and black glasses), we may have to tell two of them no. And I do believe Howard wants in after this past weekend. That's why Schumann makes the big bucks. Not confident enough for a prediction here either way.
SIDENOTE: Watch Tony Rojas here
