Georgia Football Recruiting: 5-Star Josh Sweat to Announce Decision Tomorrow
Josh Sweat – ☆☆☆☆☆
#6 Overall; #1 WDE; #1 in VA
Oscar Smith (Chesapeake, VA) WDE
5-Star defensive end, Josh Sweat, will be committing tomorrow at 10 a.m. at his high school. This one is really too close to call. People close to Georgia say the Bulldogs have the edge. People close to FSU say the Criminoles have the edge. And people close to Virginia Tech say the Hokies have the edge. If I had to guess right now I’d give UGA the slight edge because of Sweat’s mom’s concern with the way Florida State is being run and all the bad press they’ve been getting lately. That being said, she did say it would be Josh’s decision alone.
Sweat would certainly be a HUGE addition to this 2015 class, but Georgia fans shouldn’t be that upset if the Dawgs don’t land him. He’s not as important to this class as Trenton Thompson, Terry Godwin, or even some of the other receivers UGA has landed. Sweat would make the Georgia pass rush even more terrifying, but the Dawgs certainly aren’t lacking when it comes to defensive ends/outside linebacker pass rushers. Regardless of what happens, you have to give the Georgia staff and Kevin Sherrer, in particular, credit for even getting Georgia (the only SEC school he’s considering) into Sweat’s top-3.
