Georgia football may have lost one of their best recruiters with Dan Lanning taking the Oregon head coaching job, but the news won’t phase the 2022 class.
The Dawgs have done a ton to make sure this class stays intact, and for all of Lanning’s recruits, Will Muschamp and Glenn Schumann will likely be in charge of making sure they are okay.
Coaches leave, and sometimes that affects a kids’ decisions, but this close to signing day, the Dawgs won’t have any key players de-commit. Georgia should still finish with the No.1 recruiting class in the country after the way this past weekend’s recruiting event went.
Despite losing their defensive coordinator, Georgia football will still have the top recruiting class.
One of the best things head coach Kirby Smart did was have Schumann and Lanning together as co-defensive coordinators. Schumann will be better than Lanning in the long run, plus his recruiting ability is just as good as Lanning’s, if not better.
Many of the pledges were getting recruited by both coaches, which seems to have helped keep a lot of guys okay with Lanning leaving.
Not to mention, Muschamp is a heavy-hitter on the recruiting trail and can connect with anyone.
Lanning may have landed a lot of these players for the Dawgs, but their secondary recruiters are making sure these pledges fall in love with the school and culture, not just their position coach.
Not to mention there is also an evil genius in Tray Scott sticking around Athens who is flying under the radar. He is such a good recruiter and developer that Georgia is lucky no one has wanted to take a chance on him yet.
We also cannot talk about the great recruiters on this staff without mentioning Jahmile Addae, he was a secondary recruiter for some of the guys Lanning landed, and he is a rising stud who will be a force in Athens for a long time.
Georgia football is just a couple of days away from finding out if they will get crowned No.1 in recruiting once again, and even with them losing their defensive coordinator, the Dawgs are going to finish this class out with a bang.
That’s what elite programs do. They rebuild regardless of who is coaching because kids want to play there.
