Georgia Football Recruiting: Two 4-Stars In the Bag, One of Top WR Commits Tears ACL
Recruiting Quick Hits
Roquan Smith – UGA and Florida seem to be the teams to beat for the 4-star linebacker out of Montezuma, Ga. As I said yesterday though, I still think Roquan is a Georgia Lock. He’s great friends with some of Georgia’s current commits including Trenton Thompson and always speaks very highly of the Dawgs. In this interview with Michael Carvell, Roquan talks abouthow he’d love to play with Thompson and that it would clog the line and allow him to move around more freely. Look for Smith to commit sometime in the next few weeks after he visits for the Clemson game.
Rashad Roundtree – Michael Carvell was able to get another great interview with Augusta safety, Rashad Roundtree. Roundtree has been rather quiet about his recruitment so far, but two teams, Georgia and Ohio State, seem to have risen to the top. In this interview, Rashad spills a little more than he has in the past as he says that Georgia and Ohio State are his leaders and that he will definitely take official to those two schools. He then says he only plans on taking two or three visits altogether.
At the end of the video, Rashad says something very interesting. He is asked to give a hint on his recruiting. His response: “The school will have the color black in it.” With Ohio States colors being scarlet and grey, you have to assume Rashad is hinting at the Bulldogs. I think he’ll wait until after his football season ends to commit, but Rashad is all Dawg.
Jayson Stanley – Last Friday, Stanley, one of Georgia’s top wide receiver commits for the class of 2015 tore his ACL and is out for the season. Mark Richt, unlike some other coaches (Nick Saban), will of course still honor Jayson’s scholarship and is excited to have him up at UGA. Jayson seems like a very hard working kid, and I fully expect him to be ready to go next fall if needed.
Michael Carvell also caught up with him in an exclusive interview.
