It’s clear that Georgia football has a championship mindset, but when the high school recruits show that same initiative, you know the Dawgs recruited the right guys. On Wednesday, the Dawgs saw 24-of-26 guys sign, and of those guys, nine are already on campus practicing with the team as they prep for the Peach Bowl.
To have that many already on campus is mind-blowing. That number is high because those guys took the necessary steps to enroll early and get their ducks in a row. For a high school kid to do that, it takes a lot of sacrifice and grit — a championship-caliber mindset. Georgia will have 17 of their signees enroll early, so this group is ready to take it to the next level.
The Dawgs will lose some guys again this year, so the sooner Georgia can get new blood on campus, the better. Getting there early allows them to get acquainted with the team and start learning their new system.
Georgia football has early enrollees that already have the championship mindset.
The nine names on campus already are cornerback AJ Harris, linebacker Raylen Wilson, linebacker CJ Allen, receiver Tyler Williams, receiver Anthony Evans, receiver Yazeed Haynes, edge rusher Gabriel Harris, tight end Lawson Luckie, and defensive tackle Jamaal Jarrett.
This group of guys has been on campus the last few days, allowing them to start practicing with the team. They cannot play, of course, but getting acquainted with their new teammates is very good for the future. When they can build that bond right away, it will help on the field down the road and help them when spring ball comes around — they’ll be even more prepared.
Mykel Williams and Oscar Delp did this last year, and look at how much playing time it got Williams. The Dawgs don’t care what year you are. If a player is ready to take on that role and the staff can trust them, they will have it.
