Bulldogs well represented at The Opening

7/4/2012

Georgia fans will be tuning in to The Opening, the July 5-8 premier camp in Oregon, to catch several of the Bulldogs' commitments in action. The coaching staff in Athens has to be pleased to see seven Georgia commitments take the field, the second-largest number of commits for any school at the event.

Georgia will be well represented on offense, with four future Dawgs in Oregon.

Quarterback Brice Ramsey (Kingsland, Ga./Camden County) and wide receiver Tramel Terry (Goose Creek, S.C./Goose Creek) are close friends and have been working on their timing together during visits this summer. Wide receiver Reggie Davis (Tallahassee, Fla./Lincoln) will meet up with his future quarterback as well. Protecting Ramsey in the future will be a true grappler, offensive lineman Brandon Kublanow (Marietta, Ga./Walton).

Three of the Bulldogs' defensive commits will be at The Opening. Georgia’s top-rated commit, cornerback Shaq Wiggins (Tyrone, Ga./Sandy Creek), is also close friends with safety commit Tray Matthews (Newnan, Ga./Newnan). Both earned their invitations as well as numerous accolades at the Atlanta NFTC camp. Athlete Reggie Wilkerson (Citra, Ga./North Marion) can make plays on both sides of the ball, but his future in Athens is at cornerback.

Most of the Georgia commits have stated publicly that there is more to The Opening than just the camp. These future Bulldogs are looking to come back with more Georgia commits than when they arrive.

Wiggins and Foster are relentless recruiters and they will be all over linebacker Reuben Foster (Auburn, Ga./Auburn). The nation’s No. 2 prospect is best friends with Matthews and close friends with Wiggins, and he has stated that the three will play together in college. Foster is committed to Alabama, though, and where the three intend to play remains to be seen.

Foster and Matthews have also said running back Alvin Kamara (Norcross, Ga./Norcross) will likely be joining them in college. Kamara would be a big get for the Bulldogs, as they recently lost athlete Derrick Henry (Yulee, Fla./Yulee) to a decommitment from Georgia. Henry, whom the coaching staff is recruiting as a running back, said Monday that Alabama is his new leader. Georgia is still pursuing Henry, but Kamara is highly coveted in Athens as well.

Another top athlete the Bulldogs are after is athlete Brendan Langley (Marietta, Ga./Kell). Georgia wants Langley as a cornerback, and for a while the four-star senior had the Bulldogs on the top of his list. Alabama tops his list now, but the Georgia commits will be working to sway Langley.

The Alabama vs. Georgia theme will be personified in the form of the upcoming decision by tight end Josh McNeil (Durham, N.C./Hillside). The Tar Heel State standout has those two schools as his finalists -- yet another reason for Georgia fans to watch all the action.

The Bulldogs would love to go 2-for-2 in North Carolina with the addition of offensive lineman Tyrone Crowder (Rockingham, N.C./Richmond). The talented guard would make for a formidable middle along with Kublanow.
