Could UGA make late addition to 2014 class? 

By Michael Carvell

Could UGA make a late addition to this year’s football recruiting class?

Earlier this month, the Bulldogs signed 21 players for their 2014 football recruiting class. They had space for a couple of more, if needed.

If you recall two weeks after signing day last year, UGA made a late addition with Toby Johnson, the defensive tackle from Hutchinson junior college.

In March of 2009, UGA signed kicker Brandon Bogotay out of a California junior college.

Could the Bulldogs make a late addition this year?

“It would be a surprise to me,” UGA coach Mark Richt told the AJC on Thursday. “We’re not really actively pursing anybody right now, but things pop up. We may have space. Space gets created sometimes. So it’s possible, I guess.”

If UGA added another recruit this year, it would most likely be a junior-college player.

The dawgs have under recruited for the last fiv or sx years.  And as Richt says their not actively recruiting which is the answer year round.

Michael;

I read your stuff daily.

But never again.

After that little trick headline just to grab a reader ... nah.

That is Bad Journalism - a cute trick - but in my mind, unethical.

You should be ashamed of yourself.

Sorry;

G`dad

I don't think the numbers aren't currently available to add another scholarship player. That will change between now and Fall.

Is this article for real?  Okay then, I have one.


Could Mark Richt buy a new car this year?


Back in 2012 he bought a Georgia Bulldog red Ford F150 truck.


And back in 2009 he added to his fleet with the purchase.......

Richt should sign one of those great Australian Rules Football players and upgrade the punter position. Barber was unable to field snaps and he tended to get blocked. Eriickson might be OK but it never hurts to have options.

Richt can add more walk-ons to his free scholly's so UGA can pad the academic success...as usual

Reading you blogs proves that you don't need anyone taking up for you but these fools on here that criticize some of your topics need to just get a life. There are only a few months out of a year when there is no summer workouts, regular season  Football games , Spring practice or Recruiting signing periods. These few months are fairly dead periods and for Journalist to be able to come up with anything to discuss every few days is doing a great job. 

Keep up the good job and don't give these " CRITICS " the time of day.

Who is still on the board?  Is there some JUCO sleep out there we could snag?  That would be worth knowing about.

Write something about USA HOCKEY. At least it would be worth reading.

Hey Carvell, stick to making those creepy video interviews with recruits.  Those videos always feel like they are one awkward question away from turning into a sick and twisted 'Girls Gone Wild' type video.

What kind of story is this?  Did you just have nothing to write for today?  UGA could add a player but there is no word that they will and no indication that they will.  What?????  I read the headline thinking there was some word on someone only to find that it was a headline to suck you into to reading this nothing story.

A few years back, Tim Jennings was a late addition.  UGA was the only major school that offered him a scholarship.


Four years later, he was the first Bulldog drafted and is now a pro standout.

UGA is under 85 scholarships, and Bama has to cut 7 or 8 players.

So UGA goes into another season under its scholly limit, while Bama has to "cut" 7 or players to get to 85.

Another Pulitzer Prize worthy article by Carvell.  I have a suggestion for your next piece...."Would Coach Richt curb stomp Steve Spurrier if Spurrier set Coach Richt's grandmother on fire?"

Unless it's a "major sign", save it for next year!

Can't fault this class, but Richt needs to admit our OL is mid tier SEC and work on getting 3 or 4- 5 star types on the the OL in Athens over the next 2 years.

@KeepOnSmilingWetWillie Kinda hard to pad a 100% graduation rate.  Also, giving walk-ons the occassional scholarship is a good thing.

@C-Kirk LOL.  I swear this is the most needlessly critical crowd I have ever seen.  Why bother posting if you don't think it's worthy?  What miserable people you must be to spend the time just to complain.  Silence is complaint enough.   Jeez

@RamboDawg Not true


Actually we were at 89 before the departure of JHC. Moose is quitting because of medical so will probably remain on scholarship.


There are big rumors of more departures coming. Guys like JHC who refuse to get their stuff together

@RamboDawg  If Georgia is under the limit it only by one or so and that could  prove  not to bad  thing. Would leave us  more room to sign what is a better in state class  for 2015.

@Dawgs_On_Top  Wasn't really on the same page with your "girl's gone wild" comment... they're definitely awkward, but girls gone wild? I don't know about all that, but THIS comment got me laughing. "Kudos" as some of the AJC's best would say.

@DawginLex  I didn't understand this statement in that article

  • The Vols have the toughest non-conference schedule with Utah State, Arkansas State, Oklahoma and Chattanooga. 

Other than OU, how is that the toughest non-conference schedule?  I would argue that UGA's games against Tech and Clemson alone are enough to make their non-conference schedule more difficult than the Vols.

@96JB You're probably right! With the QB situation the way it is, they probably need a little extra protection from some big hogs.

@96JB We have two pretty good red shirt freshmen with a chance to make some noise this year, so until the practices start, we all need to withhold judgement. The OL might just surprise some folks. Not saying this will happen, but I think it is fair to use the wait and see approach for now.

@96JB  There were only 2  5 star  o linemen coming out of high school in the country in 2013.Only 3 in 2014 . The  Georgia  O line  class  for  2014  was  rated 7th in the country.

@KeepOnSmilingWetWillie You can't handle the truth WetWussy.  You just have to say something don't you.  What a child.  I'd be ashamed of myself if I searched out every Bama blog just to say something derogatory.  How's that for truth?

@RamboDawg Who cares what the number is? I think they know what they're doing. Nobody is on probation regarding recruiting.

@RamboDawgWe had 66 scholarship athletes, guys that were recruited not walkons, after the seniors departed.  You must be reading some of the BS that the guys on some of the other blogs are posting as a way to diss Coach Richt.  Don't fall for their BS.  Do the research.
