Jeremy Pruitt wants YOU!

Tennessee’s offer numbers over the past two years are nuts.

I guess they’re used to rejection in Knoxville.

“I would go crazy in their offense, especially with the new offensive coordinator there…”

In case you’re wondering how Todd Monken is going over on the recruiting trail early


UPDATE:  This, too.

I’ll take “2020 Transfer Portal Candidates” for $200, Alex.

Give Jeremy Pruitt credit for gaming out the next wrinkle in SEC recruiting first, peeps.

James Coley isn’t going anywhere.

In case you need a suggestion why, Seth Emerson ($$) is here to help.

Georgia has in its proverbial backyard one of the top high school quarterbacks in the country: Brock Vandagriff, currently a junior at Athens’ Prince Avenue Prep, de-committed from Oklahoma last month. Vandagriff is known primarily as a pocket passer but he can also run. He rushed for more than 1,000 yards as a sophomore and is on the basketball and track teams at Prince Avenue Prep. (He missed most of his junior season after breaking his fibula.)

Vandagriff is rated the nation’s top pro-style quarterback recruit by 247Sports, and is the No. 8 overall prospect in the 2021 class. But Georgia has also been in the mix for the top-rated dual-threat quarterback, Caleb Williams of Washington D.C., who is the No. 15 overall prospect in the 2021 class.

Both Vandagriff and Williams are being recruited by James Coley, Georgia’s quarterbacks coach and offensive coordinator. Coley also ran lead on Newman, in case anyone needs reminding his value to Kirby Smart as a recruiter.

A brief bad news buffet

Let’s get it out of the way…

  • You know the expression, “don’t make a federal case out of it”?  I think this is what they’re talking about.
  • And you never know what an open records request will turn up.  In this case, we’ve got UGA penalizing itself over football recruits receiving discounted or free school apparel three times between March 2017 and January 2019.  (Weiszer hints that may be tied to the Dacia King dismissal.)  Oh, and let’s hear it for diligence:  “The other football violation on Oct. 30 occurred when a football player’s photo was posted on a commercial entity’s social media account wearing their product. The player granted permission to use the photo without knowing how it would be used, the school said. The player wasn’t paid by the company.The school had the photo removed on the same day it was posted and the player received rules education.”

‘Crootin’ update

With Darnell Washington making it official yesterday, Georgia moves to third in the 247Sports Composite and now sports the highest average score in the country.

Perhaps more importantly, the Dawgs rank second in the conference, with a significant gap between them and the rest of the SEC East.

In other words, Kirby’s still got it.

Of all the hot takes in the world…

… that is the one I would have expected from DawgNation.
