COMMIT! WR makes the call to UGA to the Bulldogs

How could UGA focus much on recruiting this week while it prepares to play the program’s biggest game in 30 years?

The Bulldogs didn’t really. This one sought out them.

It was Krenwick Sanders who initiated his commitment to UGA on Thursday.

UGA now has 3 commits for 2014 (AJC)

UGA now has 3 commits for 2014 (AJC)

The 6-foot-2, 180-pound wide receiver from Wayne County High School picked UGA over early football scholarship offers from Vanderbilt, South Florida and UNC.

Sanders just felt like Thursday was the right time to pledge to UGA, and went to his high school coaches to get it done.

“It was out of the blue,” Wayne County coach Jody Grooms told the AJC. “He came up to (our strength coach) and said he wanted to commit. I spoke with (UGA wide receivers coach) Tony Ball, and then (Sanders) spoke with Coach Richt. And they went ahead and finished the deal.”

Sanders is a junior, and one of three commits for UGA’s 2014 class. He makes up for the recent loss of Sandy Creek High School junior WR Demarre Kitt, who backed off his longtime pledge to the Bulldogs. UGA has 30 commitments for its 2013 class.

Was UGA the dream offer for Sanders? “Well, you know, Georgia is one of the few schools he has always had interest in,” Grooms said. “I always tell my kids: Don’t make an easy decision difficult.

“He had a few other offers, but I don’t know … no matter what he would’ve done next year as a senior, I don’t know if he could’ve gotten a better offer than Georgia. I think UGA is a good fit, and he thinks it, too.”

How good is Sanders? “He’s probably been one of our most explosive players since he was in the ninth grade. We knew the first day he walked on the football field with us, he was going to play Div. I football,” Grooms said.

“Georgia is getting a player that can stretch the field horizontally and vertically. He’s an explosive player. He can run the underneath routes and also make the big catches deep. I think he brings a lot of the table.

“Most of all, Georgia is getting an in-state kid that is going to keep the in-state pipeline they got going.”

This is typical Georgia. Your clown coaches have Georgia’s biggest game in 32 YEARS and Coach Bobo and Coach Richt are playing hide and seek in the football office and sweating it out over high school juniors who are years away from signing? This is Georgia football. This is why your program is a joke, and you can’t even win a conference championship with the Number 1 overall pick the NFL Draft. Hilarious. Comical. Do you think Nick Saban is even taking phone calls from his wife this week? Or daughter? H#ll no. He’d hang up on a kid in a New York minute. That’s not how the “process” works at Alabama, and that’s why we’re going to blast your silly spray tan coach and his “soft” defense to the moon. Hey Bobo, go call some 2016 kids tomorroiw!!

Good deal! We have a bunch of qb’s to throw this kid the ball. Bobo knows how to spread it around. Good luck kid – richt will treat you well.

This kid does not “make up for Demarre Kitt. Kitt still has a UGA offer and once he comes to his senses about Clemson will end up at UGA, also.

Go Dawgs!

Born and Bread needs to go read the article comparing Richt and Saban on Saban says he works in the football offices 7AM to 10PM…. Richt on the other hand goes in at 8AM (after breakfast with family and dropping his kids off at school) and works until 1AM on a nightly basis. Good try Harvey.

Just what is Red Tide anyway? According to Websters it is an infestation of rancid, stench filled algae caused by pollution of the ocean. So when you say Crimson Tide you mean pollution.

UGA coaches Will Friend and John Lilly visited with Laremy Tunsil yesterday at his HS in Lake City, FL…. the visit went quite well… so well that Laremy’s mother also dropped by to visit with Friend & Lilly!

Most important game in 32 years??? I believe UGA played in this same SECCG 12 months ago?

Dear Coach Grooms,

What would a “better” offer be?

“no matter what he would’ve done next year as a senior, I don’t know if he could’ve gotten a better offer than Georgia.”

Born and Bread in Alabama. So that would make your mother and father also your aunt and uncle. Or maybe your father is also your grandfather. I wonder if Alabama has any pledges from any high school juniors athletes? Why as a matter of fact they do. I guess as a true Bama fan, not sure you are, probably a troll, you would know that. Then again you could just be stupid, ignorant, clueless, dump or retarded. I’d go with retarded. At least that would make you not look so stupid.
Sounds to me Richt ain’t worried at all about Alabama if he is taking time off to recruit.

@ Southside dawg;

On occasions the recruit gets offered with certain conditions attached such as asking a QB to play WR or DB. If the recruit excells a QB his senior year he may be able to get signed as a QB rather than the original UGA offer. Not saying that is the case here but it does happen!!!!!!!
