DawgNation week in review
By David Ching
ATHENS, Ga. -- With the spring evaluation period in full swing, Georgia’s football coaches continue to work on assembling next year’s signing class.
This week in DawgNation, we took a look at some
prospects who might receive scholarship offers
from Mark Richt’s staff in the coming days and weeks. We also
heard from the head coach himself
as he discussed some of the recruiting issues facing college staffs these days.
As for specific prospects, we provided updates this week on several
ESPN 150 guard
(St. Petersburg, Fla./Lakewood Senior)
ESPN 150 receiver
2016 offensive tackle
(Toccoa, Ga./Stephens County)
We also had our own Kipp Adams appear on a
new video feature called “SEC Official Visit,”
where he discussed the new commitments -- ESPN 150 honorees
-- who joined Georgia’s 2014 class last week.
It was quiet on the team side with players preparing for summer and taking their final exams this week. We still delivered a few team-related stories from both the local and national perspective.
At the beginning of the week, just after the conclusion of last week’s NFL draft, we looked forward to next year and examined some of
Georgia’s top prospects for the 2014 draft
. Along those lines, ESPN Insider Brock Huard also previewed next year’s draft, naming Bulldogs quarterback Aaron Murray as
one of the top five quarterback prospects
for next year.
ESPN Insider’s Travis Haney threw compliments toward another Bulldog, naming outside linebacker Jordan Jenkins as
one of his top candidates to enjoy a breakout season this fall.
We also reviewed one of the big talking points of Georgia's spring practice -- that
Georgia will have more game-ready offensive linemen capable of rotating this fall
-- and examined whether position coach Will Friend might follow through with that possibility this fall.
We also rehashed a couple of interesting conversations with defensive end
as we continued our “Spring Cleaning” series and
reviewed the previous weeks’ post-spring position reviews
with an all-inclusive recap.
