Georgia’s recruiting is on a multi-year roll.

Just ask Bill Connelly.

Or Bruce Feldman.

Perhaps the most stunning recruiting stat I saw yesterday is this one:

Did you ever think you’d see a day when Georgia would sign as many California blue chippers as Southern Cal?  I sure didn’t.

    According to 247 there were 9 “top 100” players in California and not one of them signed with a California school. How does that happen? It’s California and that’s an easy sell to an 18 year old boy. I get it when kids like Jarvis Jones pick USC. Kids picking Arizona State over USC? Nope.

    Georgia’s 2020 OL class: One 5*, three 4s, and two 3s in a huge area of need given last season’s departures.

    Great job by Matt Luke in eight weeks. Now the fun starts in development..

    Also give Coach Pittman and Coach Coley credit for being the professionals they are.

    Can’t help but be encouraged on how January went compared to last year for Georgia.

      “Great job by Matt Luke in eight weeks.”
      This was such a relief. I was concerned we would have a drop-off in this area. We have much to be excited about with the expected improvement in the OC coaching with no drop-off in OL recruiting. Now, as you say, let’s see how the development goes.

    California schools’ failure to sign the studs is really surprising, especially since California is the state that passed the NIL legislation.

    • I thought the same thing, which is why I think an NLI agreement for the players really won’t alter the current CFB landscape as much as some worry it will.
      There was an article this morning in the Gwinnett Daily Post with a list of the signees this class out of Gwinnett. A quick eyeball tally gets 115 total, a dozen to D-1 schools (including 6 to Army and one to Navy) and 2 to top 5 D-1 schools. I get that this is a small sample nationally but Gwinnett is a big district with a strong athletic presence. Yes, Buford kids were included in the tally. So we end up with 2/100 (Making the math easy. Sue me) that would actually have a chance at substantial reward from the NLI. That’s just too small of a percentage to really affect the existing balance.
      To the point the Senator is continually trying to make, the opportunity would be there just as it is for every other student.

    It is beyond an epic fail for USC to have the 54th ranked recruiting class. How in the hell does Clay Helton keep his job?

      Part of the reason he has a #54 class is because the AD left him hanging in the breeze on firing him or keeping him and the kids aren’t going somewhere, generally, if they feel the coach will not be there for at least one year. That class was just as much about how poorly the athletic department is ran as anything Helton is doing.

    UCLA is the school that mystifies me. USC keeps handing them windows, and Dan Guerrero keeps whiffing.

    If you want some poster children for athletic department dysfunctional, the two LA schools have to be exhibits A and B. Add Larry Scott on top of that, and no wonder Cali kids are running away in droves.

    My outlook is sooooo much brighter than it was the week after LSU smoked us.

    It’s a great time to be a Dawg. Great job by the staff.

    Glad we’re passing on Evans.

    Says 2 things. Team Kirby leaves no stone unturned to be able to get 2 from Cali. It also shows what an absolute dumpster fire Southern Cal has become.

    Well, I’ll admit I was 100% wrong about Herm Edwards. He’s been decent on the field and he recruits much better than I ever though he would.

    I don’t get it. Why would anyone want to play for Herman Edwards?

    At some point you have to convert that talent into Championships, as I’m frequently reminded by all my colleagues who are not Bulldog fans!
