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, 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.

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.

  1. There is no way sweet is a Dawg never happen! This kid will not play in a no interest bowl at the end of the year like UGA does every January.

      Well thankfully they don’t care a ton about that. i.e. Matthew Stafford, AJ Green, Isaiah Crowell, Lorenzo Carter, Trenton Thompson. Georgia puts more players in the NFL than just about any other school, and players love the coaching staff. They have just as good a shot as any.
