Five top Dawg Night story lines 

July, 13, 2012
ATHENS, Ga. -- Georgia’s Dawg Night camp never fails to provide a plethora of storylines and this year’s installment is no different. With 17 committed prospects and at least 17 uncommitted recruits with Georgia offers in attendance, the potential for recruiting drama is high. Add to that at least 70 other prospects that will be trying to impress the Georgia coaching staff, and vice versa, and it can be tough to follow. So DawgNation is looking at five of the main story lines for tonight's big event.

1. Who will commit? That is always the biggest question, since much of the camp is celebration of all things Georgia. Dawg Night is not like a Nike camp or combine. It is geared toward the coaches evaluating talent for the Bulldogs and recruits evaluating the instruction the Georgia coaches provide. So getting the prospects into Sanford Stadium, blaring some music and hype videos, plus the pressure of previously committed prospects pushing Georgia on their fellow campers often results in a commitment.

This year a few players are coming in with the Bulldogs at the top of their list. Safety Quincy Mauger (Marietta, Ga./Kell) and inside linebacker Tim Kimbrough (Indianapolis/Warren Central) are both bringing their parents and could commit today. Defensive tackle Kelsey Griffin (Hoschton, Ga./Mill Creek) just named Georgia his leader also.
