Watch video of UGA’s newest recruit, kicker Brandon Bogotay

Mark Richt didn't have to look as far as Poland to find a kicker (AJC)

Mark Richt: No recruiting trips to Poland (AJC).

Georgia coach Mark Richt, who famously said late last season that he might have to look as far as Poland for a kickoff specialist, found one in southern California.

The Bulldogs on Thursday signed junior college kicker Brandon Bogotay — a San Diego native who played last season at Grossmont College in El Cajon, Calif. — to a letter of intent.

Great job AJC. This is proof again why I canceled my UGASPORTS and DAWGPOST subscription. Why pay when you get the same video and better recruiting reporting at the AJC for F R E E!!!!!!!!!!! Those other pay websites are too busy making up fake stories about the Georgia basketball coach search. Ridiculous.

I have a favor to ask. Please give us a minute mark for the video. I do not want to watch three minutes of Long Beach football for three seconds of kicking. Plus I did not see him kick it through the endzone on a kickoff. That is all I want to know. Did we waste a scholly on another kicker? Coutu was a WALK ON!!!! Can’t we find some soccer kid in GA that will walk on?

Hell I don’t want any field goal kickers. It would be good for our offense to not be so dependent on Field Goals and focus on RED ZONE offense! Our reliance on Field Goals is like welfare, it is a crutch!!!

Chris….stop whining and let the ajc and UGA coaches do their job. I know they are better at their job than you Monday morning QB’s.

I appreciate the work of the ajc and CMR…

I agree that you should not have to pay for UGASports or DawgPost to get good quality videos of UGA sporting events. Check out my YouTube stuff from the Red and Black. You will get Coach Richt talking about the kicker with some clips from these videos included.

He is 6-3 so he should be able to help stop any returns.

Give the kid a break. He could surprise all of us. If he wasn’t any good, they wouldn’t have given him a ride.
