Georgia Football Recruiting: #1 Player in the Nation Was Impressed, UGA to Flip Bama Commit?, and More!
#1 Player Very Impressed With the Bulldogs
Josh Sweat – ☆☆☆☆☆
#1 Overall; #1 WDE; #1 in VA
Oscar Smith (Chesapeake, VA) WDE
The nation’s number one overall player, Josh Sweat, took his official visit to UGA last weekend, and it seems like he was really impressed. When asked what his favorite part of the trip was, he said “everything” because it was all so good. The game atmosphere really impressed him and he was surprised at how nice everything was. He likes the coaches and people at Georgia a lot, and says he could see himself playing there and being with them. Sweat told reporters that this visit helped UGA a lot.
Sweat still has official visits to Virginia Tech and Florida State before he announces his decision sometime during the first week of December.
Bama Commit is High on the Dawgs
Ronnie Harrison – ☆☆☆☆
#183 Overall; #11 S; #27 in FL
Florida State University School (Tallahassee, FL) S
Ronnie Harrison, who has been committed to the Crimson Tide since July, is now strongly considering the Dawgs. Jeremy Pruitt has been going after him hard the last couple of months, and it seems to be paying off. Harrison visited Athens for the Auburn game and was absolutely blown away. He loved everything about his official visit: the game, the atmosphere, eating at Mark Richt’s house, and getting to know the coaches on a more personal level.
He is still committed to Alabama, but says that the Dawgs are right up there with them. Harrison is even considering signing a financial aid agreement with Georgia which would bind them to him, but not the other way around.
4-Star Defensive Tackle Enjoys First Trip to Athens
Albert Huggins – ☆☆☆☆
#77 Overall; #11 DT; #1 in SC
Orangeburg-Wilkinson (Orangeburg, SC) DT
One of the Bulldog’s top remaining targets, Albert Huggins, took his first visit to UGA last weekend, and he really enjoyed it. His favorite thing by far about Georgia is the coaching staff. He thinks they are all really good guys, and he also feels assured that they’ll be there for the next few years. It doesn’t sound like things could have gone much better for Huggins, and if I had to guess, I’d say Georgia has a slight lead over Clemson right now.
This will be an interesting player to watch, and it could very well come down to signing day.
