Roundtable: 2014 recruiting needs

AM ET
ATHENS, Ga. -- Nick Chubb’s verbal commitment last week was big not only because it added a record-setting rusher to Georgia’s 2014 recruiting class, but also because -- together with a previous commitment from another elite tailback, Sony Michel -- it addressed Georgia’s biggest need in this class.

The Bulldogs have Todd Gurley and Keith Marshall, of course, but they will be draft-eligible juniors after the 2014 season. The only other scholarship backs on the roster are brand-new freshmen A.J. Turman and Brendan Douglas, so Michel and Chubb will add depth and the talent necessary to keep Georgia’s backfield train on the tracks.

With that recruiting need addressed, it brings us to this week’s DawgNation roundtable question: Now that Georgia has addressed its most glaring need for 2014, running back, what is the next position Mark Richt’s coaching staff should square away for this recruiting class?

ATHENS, Ga. -- With the spring camp over and the spring evaluation period underway, this seems as good a time as any to reopen the DawgNation Mailbag. We missed two weeks with the release of the ESPN 150 rankings and all the fireworks last week with the commitments of Sony Michel and Jeb Blazevich so let us get back to your burning questions.

gilly5134: I know it's hard to judge but how do you think the ACL injuries will affect Michael Bennett and Tramel Terry next year? I know it takes a lot of guys a while to get that mental edge back after realizing they can break.

SUWANEE, Ga. -- Two weeks ago, Watch List Dante Sawyer (Suwanee, Ga./North Gwinnett) took a trip up to Kentucky to meet with the Wildcats’ coaching staff. The 6-foot-3, 250-pound defensive end has over 20 offers to date, and it looks like new head coach Mark Stoops and his staff have done what they need to pique Sawyer’s interests so far.

ESPN 300 OL, UGA legacy makes call

ATHENS, Ga. -- Georgia added another ESPN 300 offensive lineman to its class this morning when four-star DeVondre Seymour (Suwanee, Ga./North Gwinnett) elected to sign with the Bulldogs, DawgNation's Kipp Adams has confirmed.

Seymour, the No. 259 overall prospect and No. 14 offensive tackle, is the adopted son of former Georgia Bulldogs All-American Richard Seymour. He initially considered waiting to sign until he sorts out academic concerns, but instead signed with the Bulldogs on Wednesday and could attend a prep school.

The 6-foot-5, 295-pound prospect chose the Bulldogs over three other finalists: Alabama, Auburn and Louisville. Seymour took a visit to UGA on Jan. 11, but academics forced him to focus on the classroom this past month and limited his chances to take other visits.

North Gwinnett coach Bob Sphire explained Seymour's situation last week to DawgNation's Radi Nabulsi: “Well, I don’t see him signing on signing day because he still has some more work to do academically. ... It may end up being prep school, it may end up that junior college is the option. He still has time to get things taken care of, too, so the best thing he can do is just keep his nose to the grindstone and work on those things.”

What is the impact of Seymour's decision?

ESPN 300 OT Seymour talks signing day

PM ET

SUWANEE, Ga. -- ESPN 300 offensive tackle DeVondre Seymour does not give a lot of interviews. He doesn’t see the need for it and if he answered the phone for everyone that called, he would lose valuable study time. After transferring from South Carolina and subsequently getting behind academically, that study time is at an even higher premium as signing day approaches.

Seymour did take a few minutes out of his day to speak with DawgNation recently and outlined what his plans were for signing day.

Every week through football season, DawgNation writer Kipp Adams will reveal five things he learned while out on the road watching the best in the Southeast play football. Those nuggets could include recruiting gems, game observations and/or merely thoughts on sports in general.

Radi Nabulsi/ESPN.comThe nation's No. 1 prospect, Robert Nkemdiche, saw a lot of double- and triple-teams in his season opener.
On Saturday, I was at the Georgia Dome for the Corky Kell Classic.

  1. Star-struck: The ESPN 300 was well represented Saturday, with seven members on the field at the Georgia Dome. They did not disappoint either, as several of the top performances of the day came out of that group. Other top prospects were in attendance to watch the event, including ESPN 150 defensive lineman Kelsey Griffin (Hoschton, Ga./Mill Creek), ESPN 300 defensive end and Florida State commitment Davin Bellamy (Chamblee, Ga./Chamblee), four star defensive end and University of Florida commitment Antonio Riles (Lawrenceville, Ga./Archer) and 2014 University of Georgia commitments Demarre Kitt (Tyrone, Ga./Sandy Creek) and Nick Glass (Atlanta/St. Pius X.). This year, the event added a fifth game to the slate, so I had a chance to watch 10 of the best programs in the state do battle for from 9 a.m. to midnight. I am still napping in an effort to recover from the football overload.
