The undisputed No. 1 prospect in the country will be at UGA on Saturday.
But the most important visitor for the Bulldogs that day will be Montravius Adams, the defensive tackle from Dooly County High School who is ranked as the nation’s No. 2 overall prospect – behind Robert Nkemdiche – by 247sports.com. The Bulldogs have a good shot at Adams.
Perhaps even more important than Montravius being there will be the attendance of his mother, who will be accompanying the star recruit. When Adams experienced his first-ever UGA game last month for the win over Tennessee, he went without his mother.
That’s a pretty big deal because Adams had told reporters that his mother will help him make his college decision. As we’ve learned this year in recruiting, especially with the Nkemdiche situation, one of the first rules of recruiting is this: Win over the mother.
Florida, Alabama, Clemson, UGA and Auburn are considered among the favorites for the 6-foot-4, 310-pound Adams. Auburn coach Gene Chizik will make an appearance at Dooly County’s game on Friday, according to DawgNation’s Kipp Adams.
Nkemdiche will also be at the UGA with his mother; they will be watching his brother, Denzel Nkemdiche, the Ole Miss linebacker who leads the teams in tackles. The Bulldogs are considered a longshot with Nkemdiche, who has always really admired Mark Richt for his Christian values.
When asked about UGA’s chances on Thursday, Nkemdiche was respectful and said, “I don’t know. I could fall in love when I get there. I haven’t been there in forever, so I don’t know.”
