UGA’s recruiting prophet has spoken.
Longtime UGA safety commit Tray Matthews, who predicted a recruit committing to the Bulldogs on Twitter on Tuesday, had another message for his followers on late Wednesday night:
“Another commit coming soon ladies & gentlemen”
When Matthews speaks, people listen. And commits commit – to UGA.
Matthews is a true UGA recruiting insider. He has been pledged to the Bulldogs since two summers ago, communicates with Mark Richt and staff on a regular basis, and chitchats with recruits all the time.
Last Tuesday’s prophecy turned out to be Brendan Langley, the cornerback from Kell High School who flipped from South Carolina to UGA.
Who could the next one be? Matthews’ tweet is cryptic, not revealing who or when.
The one that would floor UGA fans would be 4-star LB Reuben Foster, who is committed to Auburn but still flirting with the Bulldogs. As has been well-documented in countless stories, Matthews and Foster are close friends. There are rumors that Foster may go to Matthews to UGA for the Georgia Tech game – which would be a pretty big deal if that happened because Auburn plays Alabama on the same day. Foster is the celebrity type of recruit — such as a Montravius Adams, Laremy Tunsil or Robert Nkemdiche – that would rubberstamp this year’s UGA class as a rather good one.
Then there’s Kennar Johnson, the defensive back from Mississippi’s Gulf Coast junior college who will announce his college decision after he returns from this weekend’s official visit to UGA, according to UGASports.com’s Jake Rowe. Johnson told the website that South Florida, Ole Miss and UGA are his top three. But how well does Matthews know Johnson? They both play in the defensive secondary.
What about Ja’Quay Williams? He’s also committed to Auburn. And like with Reuben Foster, landing Williams would be a coup for UGA. He was the state’s No. 1 prospect at WR last year and is better than any of the wide receivers in this year’s crop. Williams took an official visit to Texas A&M last week. He’s touring UGA this weekend on an official visit. Florida and Oklahoma State are also in the picture. The connection between Williams and Matthews is that they played at nearby high schools.
