Talent rich Georgia football got richer with defensive tackle Tyrion Ingram-Dawkins.

A Go Dawgs! tweet from Georgia football head coach Kirby Smart’s means good recruiting news. With the good news of Tyrion Ingram-Dawkins‘ commitment, the Bulldogs stand to put even more daylight between themselves and the fast pedaling Tennessee Volunteers. This less than a month after the Volunteers were scheduled to climb over Georgia on the SEC ladder with an upset win in Sanford Stadium.

Pedal faster, Tennessee. Kirby’s riding a Harley.

Number one South Carolina prospect to Athens

Early on, Ingram-Dawkins looked like a possible Tennessee commit.  As it turned out the Dawgs ended up in more of a battle with South Carolina than the Volunteers. In the end, Georgia gets the number one prospect in South Carolina, out of Gaffney High School, and will bring him to Athens.

With 17 prospects already committed, the Ingram-Dawkins pledge pushes Georgia football into a near-dead heat with LSU and Clemson for the national number three ranked recruiting class in 2021.

Georgia football pulling away

With 26 pledges already for 2020, Tennessee will doubtlessly fall dramatically from its national number ten rank as there are thirteen programs with less than 20 commitments ranked in the top 20.

As the Volunteers are finding out, the more things change, the more they don’t, and this isn’t 1938. As a matter of fact, it’s not even1998.

The Ingram-Dawkins commitment gives Georgia football a pledge from the top high school prospects in two states. Top Georgia prospect Amarius Mims (6’7″ 315 offensive tackle) from Bleckley County High committed to the Dawgs last week.

Packing the Smart train

Ingram-Dawson joins defensive line commitments Jonathan Jefferson (6’4″ 255 four-star defensive end) and Marlin Dean (6’6″ 265 three-star defensive tackle). The Dawgs hope to take another defensive lineman in the class as Julian Rochester, Devonte Wyatt, and Malik Herring will be lost off the defensive line. The Dawgs could lose Jordan Davis as well.

Georgia is also chasing defensive end Shemar Turner, a top ten Desoto, Texas prospect. No other top defensive line prospects appear to be possible Georgia signees, so the Ingram-Dawkins pledge is big for Kirby Smart’s Bulldog defense.

Next. Dawgs need wide more receiver dudes. dark

For the rest of the Eastern division, chasing Kirby Smart’s big red machine seems pointless. Maybe chasing the Gators is a better idea.
