VIDEO: What about UGA’s blistering start in football recruiting?



UGA is off to a torrid start with its 2013 football recruiting class.

The Bulldogs already have 14 commits for next year, and could add another one soon with this guy.

How fast is UGA’s pace? To put it into context, with this year’s class (2012), the Bulldogs didn’t get No. 14 until QB Faton Bauta pledged last November, around 2.5 months before signing day.

With next year’s class, UGA already has 14 and signing day is around nine months away.

What do you think? Please post below

UGA commits for 2013

  1. RB Derrick Henry, 6-3, 241, Yulee, Fla.
  2. QB Brice Ramsey, 6-3, 190, Camden County HS
  3. S Tray Matthews, 6-2, 205, Newnan HS

This is real positive sign for UGA programme.Coach Ritch must be
doing great getting this boys to commit. I believe honesty, determination and and above all character to win a heart of recruit to commit, therefore Coach Mark Ritch has all above

GTFAN you seem to be here a lot. I guess you don’t have a job, life, wife, or anything better to do. Asian girls are not hot? You really are just a stupid redneck if that is what you think.

Hershel is the only thing that makes UGA relevant

Spur Dogs comments about moving the Georgia game to later in the season:

“I don’t know. I sort of always liked playing them that second game because you could always count on them having two or three key players suspended.”

Here’s what I think…

The reason UGA has so many Commits at this point is more related to the fact they’ll have 30-35 schlarship spots for 2013…and they’ll need a sizeable number of those kids to enroll in January. Are the Dwags pressuring kids to sign now and encouraging them to take their visits later? They’re probably going to get a handful de-commit or flip before then anyway.

Dawgs are funny. You are Prejudiced against Asians because they work harder and are smarter than you, but you LOVE the Big Dumb Plantation Boys on your football team. How do you rationalize that with your morals and ethics?
