Recruiting Quick Hits

 

Christian Owens Talks Dawgs

Christian Owens – ☆☆☆☆
Griffin (Griffin, GA) WR/TE
6-5/205

Michael Carvell of the AJC caught up with Christian Owens the other day and found out some good news for Bulldog fans. It had been rumored that Owens was wavering on his commitment because of all the wide receivers that UGA already has committed, but that does not seem to be the case. Christian says that he is solid with his commitment and that he actually likes all the competition that awaits him in Athens because it will force him to step up his game.

Also interesting is that Owens denied the rumors that UGA plans on using him as a tight end. Now I still think he might play a little hybrid once he arrives at Georgia, but only time will tell.

Interview with Owens here.

 

Charlie Woerner Update

Charlie Woerner *2016 – ☆☆☆☆
Rabun County School (Tiger, GA) ATH
6-5/220

One of the top athletes in the state of Georgia for 2016 is Rabun County star, Charlie Woerner, nephew of former Bulldog, Scott Woerner. Right now, he’s defined as an athlete because he plays tight end, wide receiver, running back, defensive back, and H-Back. He’s a tremendous talent and really seems to have a good head on his shoulders. Woerner has been pretty quiet about his recruitment so far, but most predictions I’ve seen have him going with the Dawgs. This will certainly be an interesting recruit to watch over the next year, and you can bet that the Dawgs are going to do everything possible to land this freak athlete.

Interview with Woerner here.

 

Dawg Commit, Justin Young, Update

Justin Young – ☆☆☆
Grayson (Loganville, GA) SDE
6-3/255

Justin Young has been playing well beyond his 3-star rating this season, and many believe a fourth star may be coming soon. He’s been terrorizing opposing offenses this year and is only a few sacks away from breaking Robert Nkemdiche’s (Ole Miss star) single season record. Young says that he is very solid with UGA, and he doesn’t plan to take anymore visits to other schools. I truly believe that Young is one of the most underrated players in this 2015 class, and I could see him being an absolute star once he arrives in Athens.

Interview with Young here.

Georgia Football: ***FREE AT LAST, FREE AT LAST!***, Where Did We Leave Off?, Gurley Supporting #FreeGurley – Daily Dose of Dawg (TG3 Edition)

“I want to thank the University, coaches, teammates, and the Bulldog Nation for their patience and support. I take full responsibility for the mistakes I made, and I can’t thank the University, my coaches, and teammates enough for supporting me throughout this process. I’m looking forward to getting back on the field with my teammates.” – Todd Gurley

 

#TGFREE

It was announced this morning that UGA has presented its case on Todd Gurley to the NCAA, and all signs point to him returning for the Florida game.

Georgia could probably still beat Florida with Brendan Douglas lining up at quarterback and running the Wild Dawg every play, but it will still be nice to get #3 back and watch him terrorize Muschamp one last time. Now I won’t go so far as to say I’m glad Gurley got suspended, but I think this team did grow A LOT in his absence, and that could pay big dividends down the road.

Story on Gurley here.

 

Where Did Gurley Leave Off?

In case you’ve forgotten how dominant Gurley has been this year, here’s a little reminder:

Lane Kiffin Running For Political Office, Hutson Mason Georgia’s Biggest Weakness, And More


Welcome Home Lane

I think we all can agree that the way Lane Kiffin left Tennessee was not the best way. As an Alabama fan, I still have a hard time looking at Kiffin on the sideline, but I do believe he was the best man for the job. Do I like him as a person? I am not sure considering I have never met the man, but the way he has handled his head coaching positions does not make me want to go get a beer with him. UT fans are still so butt hurt about him leaving that they are taking to even incorporating Kiffin into negative political ads. I am making my first trip to Knoxville this week, and I can only imagine the boos that will rain down on my Tide, and Lane Kiffin. Here is the full ad.

 

Big Ten Dancing 

The Big Ten is a joke. If Kentucky were in the Big Ten, they would contend this year. The mascots for each school got together and made a video dancing along to a Taylor Swift song. If that is not the most Big Ten thing to ever happen, then someone fill me in. The only way that this video could be better, would be if the ACC mascots joined in and danced with them. Here is the comical video.

 

Hutson Mason Is Weak

Every team has a weakness. Some teams like Vanderbilt have more than others, but the contenders all have a weakness that could make or break their season. Is Hutson Mason the biggest risk for Georgia? Is the lack of luck the biggest issue for Auburn? Saturday Down South came up with a list for each contender’s biggest weakness going forward. Here is the full list.

Georgia Football Recruiting: **BIG NEWS** Dawgs On Top for New Offer, 5-Star Trenton Thompson Update, BIG 4-Star OT Update

Dawgs Offer Speedy Athlete and May Receive His Commitment Soon

Javarius Davis – ☆☆☆
Ed White (Jacksonville, FL) ATH
5-10/173

The 3-star athlete out of Jacksonville, Florida, received an offer from the UGA today, and he immediately moved the Dawgs to the top of his list. Don’t let his 3-star rating fool you, though, as plenty of top schools in the country want this kid including Florida, Michigan, North Carolina, USC, and Wisconsin. Davis has tremendous speed and could play a number of positions if he decides to become a Bulldog.

An interesting tidbit about Davis is that he is the younger brother of former UGA defensive back, Bryan Evans. Davis says that he’ll take a visit to Athens, and if everything feels right, he’ll go ahead and commit.

This wouldn’t be a flashy, big-name pick-up for UGA, but he could be one of those players that you look back on in a few years and say, “How in the world was this kid a 3-star!?”

Story on Davis here.

Check out his junior highlights:

 

Trenton Thompson Update

Trenton Thompson – ☆☆☆☆☆
Westover (Albany, GA) DT
6-4/293

5-star defensive end Trenton Thompson caught up with Rivals.com after his game on Friday and gave an update on where things stand with him. Thompson is still 150% a Dawg and isn’t wavering at all. He looks forward to getting to Athens and continues to recruit other players. Like I’ve said before, Thompson could be a huge factor in landing some top defensive talents like Roquan Smith and D’Andre Walker whose jobs would be made easier by having a dominating defensive tackle.

Thopmson plans on visiting Athens next for the Auburn game.

Interview with Thompson here.

 

Big Offensive Tackle Update

Chidi Valentine-Okeke – ☆☆☆☆
Faith Baptist Christian North (Stockbridge, GA) OT
6-5/306

Chidi Valentine-Okeke, one of the UGA’s top remaining targets for 2015 feels really good about the Dawgs. He says that Georgia feels like home to him and that he loves the coaches there. Georgia has been the school that most people think has the edge, and I have to agree. Whenever he talks recruiting, he speaks very highly of the Dawgs, and it doesn’t hurt that he’s now living in Georgia. He was initially  a 2016 recruit, but a few weeks ago after getting his transcripts in order, it’s come out that he’s now a 2015 recruit.

Chidi will commit at the Army All-American game.

Interview with Valentine-Okeke here.

Georgia Football: Herbstreit Says Gurley Can Still Win Heisman, Nick Chubb Carrying the Team, Inside Georgia Football Video – Daily Dose of Dawg

Kirk Herbstreit Thinks Gurley Can Win the Heisman

Despite missing two games already, Kirk Herbstreit says that he would vote for Gurley if he’s able to come back and keep up his domination. Last week, I talked to another media member who has a vote for the Heisman, and he told me that he’d do the same. His reasoning was, “I vote for the best eligible player in the nation. That’s it.” He expressed to me that many of the voters also feel the same way. So, if Todd Gurley is able to come back soon, has a great performance against Auburn, and UGA keeps winning, #3 still has a pretty good chance of hoisting up the hardware in New York.

Herbstreit story here.

 

Chubb Carrying the Load Without Gurley

When the Todd Gurley news broke, I think we can all admit that we were pretty devastated. How on Earth were we going to make it through the next two games without him!? Pair that up with the fact that our second and third string running backs were also out, and things weren’t looking too bright for the Bulldogs.

But in came the Chubb. Rushing for 345 yards and 3 touchdowns in Gurley’s absence, Chubb has looked nothing like a freshman.

 

Edward Aschoff of ESPN wrote a great article on Chubb here.
