Georgia Football Recruiting: Who Will UGA Land? (BIG Time 5 and 4-Stars), Dawgs to Land 2016 4-Star DL, WR From Florida Puts UGA In Top 3

Who Will the Dawgs Land?
Jake Rowe of 247 Sports put together a great list of current UGA commits and who he thinks the Dawgs will land. Now I follow recruiting very closely, and I talk to recruits occasionally throughout the week to get some information, but I am certainly not an expert like Jake. When he hays something, you can bet there’s a good chance it will happen. Here is his list. If his projections are correct, Georgia will land one 5-star and seven 4-stars, according to the 247 Sports Composite Rankings.
I agree with everything he’s said, as I had the same predictions two weeks ago. The only difference was that I didn’t have D’Andre Walker or Rico McGraw as locks (now I think they are), and I did have Micah Abernathy as a lock (still think he is). If Georgia lands all of these guys, or even the majority of them, the Dawgs will certainly have the #1 ranked class in the nation (that is, if ESPN doesn’t change the rankings to give it to Alabama).
Mykelle McDaniel (DL) *2016 – ☆☆☆☆
The 2016, 4-star defensive lineman from Grayson High School has named UGA as his leader. In fact, McDaniel would have already committed if not for his mom:
“The very next visit I take, I’ll be going back to Georgia. (The Clemson game) was great. The best part was the food,” McDaniel said. “As good as Georgia’s doing, I would have already committed, but my mom wants me to be a man of my word, so once I commit, I’m already on my way. I’m just going to wait.”
Still, McDaniel seems like a UGA lock, and it wouldn’t surprise me if he committed sometime in the next few months.

Antonio Callaway (WR) – ☆☆☆
3-Star receiver from Miami, Antonio Callaway, has put the Dawgs in his top-3 along with Florida and LSU. He likes Georgia a lot and has noticed that they play a lot of freshmen. He also says that he likes that UGA runs a spread offense. Considering the Dawgs run a pro-style offense with a few spread wrinkles thrown in, that’s a little strange.
I don’t think we’ll end up signing Antonio, but I really don’t think it’s that big of a deal. He is very talented, and probably deserves a fourth star, but our receiver class for 2015 is already stacked, and I don’t know that he’d want to come in and compete with all those guys. Here are his junior highlights, though, if you’d like to check him out.
Here are his highlights from his game against Oscar Smith (Josh Sweat’s high school) from a couple of weeks ago:
