I can just hear Larry Munson moan that the Georgia Bulldogs have momentum but its still early and ‘old lady luck’ can change things in a hurry.
June was a great recruiting month for the Dawgs, six of the eleven members of the class of 2014 committed to the G. Offensive lineman Jake Edwards and wide receiver Gilbert Johnson got things rolling on the 8th. Future five star running back Nick Chubb joined the group on the 11th, Malkom Parrish pulled the trigger on the 13th followed by Elite 11 quarterback Jacob Park on the 14th. Linebacker Detric Dukes didn’t take long to jump on his UGA offer and switched his verbal pledge from Louisville on the 23rd.
Que Munson again, “We’ll we don’t have enough linemen and you know how important that is.”
July is shaping up to be as big as June, Kendall Baker will announce his decision Wednesday evening and the Dawgs look to be in good shape with the athletic lineman, he is capable of playing on the defensive line but is viewed by many as the top offensive tackle in the state.
DawgNight is next week. a couple of five star defensive players will be on campus for the annual event, tackle Lamont Gilliard and defensive end Lorenzo Carter are the headliners. Gilliard is closer to making a decision than Carter and the visit could mean good news for Dawg fans. Lowndes county offensive tackle Dyshon Sims has seen his recruiting skyrocket in the past few weeks, he will have his family attending with him. DawgNight usually gives us a couple of surprises and this year doesn’t look to be any different.
Although the number of available scholarships will be considerably less than last year’s 33, the Georgia staff is doing a great job of filling needs with quality players and expect to ink around 22 next February.
