The UGA football 7-on-7 challenge followed by the Mark Richt mini-camp was this past weekend, and Richt and his coaching staff got a lot of solid work done with potential targets as well as taking a look at some uncommitted prospects.
It was a hugely successful three days of work and challenges for the attendees, and there were a lot of Georgia’s top targets showing up, which is a good thing for the recruiting staff.
Here’s a few tidbits from the the camp, via social media and other sources.
The nation’s No. 1 ranked prospect, Trenton Thompson, was on hand for a second straight day. Thompson didn’t compete at the camp but watched the one-on-ones closely
Just having Thompson there for a couple of days bodes well for the Bulldogs. The 5-star defensive tackle from Westover High School has nearly committed to Georgia a couple of times, but will wait until National Signing Day to announce his official decision.
ESPN 300 offensive tackle Pat Allen (Reisterstown, Md./Franklin HS), the No. 229-ranked prospect in the nation was also in attendance, and spent some time talking with Thompson. For Georgia to nab those two blue-chip players in once class would be phenomenal.
Another prospect who attended and was working hard to get an offer from Georgia is offensive tackle and ESPN 300 No. 221 Sage Hardin (Atlanta, Ga./Marist), who according to Dawgs247.com’s Kipp Adams and Jake Rowe, was doing work and impressing the coaches.

Sky is the limit for Sage Hardin once he: A) Has more experience/work in pass protection and B)adds strength and mass. — Jake Rowe (@Rowe247) June 15, 2014
It would seem that the coaches were on the same page with them, and they offered Hardin at the conclusion of the camp. According to Rowe, UGA has the upper hand in his recruitment right now.

Mark Richt’s staff made another offer following the camp to 4-star athlete Shaquery Wilson (Coral Gables, Fl./Coral Gables HS), who worked out at both wide receiver and cornerback, and according to ESPN.com, the offer moved Georgia to the top of Wilson’s list.
North Gwinnett High School wide receiver Josh Imatorbhebhe also had an impressive camp, and was making a name for himself with the best hands of any receiver attending the camp. Imatorbhebhe is a 2016 prospect that hasn’t been offered yet, but definitely got himself on the list.
Some other attendees included WR Ahmmon Richards (Wellington, Fl./Wellington Community HS), 2017 prospects Nate McBride (OLB) and Jake Fromm (QB), and 2016 prospects Jaqua Daniels (RB) and Derrick Brown (DT).
