UGA is turning up the heat with Adonis Thomas was confused by UGA at first because he didn’t get an early offer from the Bulldogs, yet held them from 20+ schools, including from FSU when Jeremy Pruitt still worked for the Seminoles. After Pruitt took the UGA job, he got around to offering Thomas last month (two months after when Pruitt offered at FSU).

  • Did UGA wait too long to offer Thomas?
  • Has UGA caught up in the race for Thomas?
  • What does Thomas like about UGA? (He visited two times in one week)
  • Who will make the final cut for Thomas? He’s about to narrow down to 10 schools. (Good news from fans of Alabama, Florida, Stanford and UCLA, among others).

Check out the above video.

This Kid has said he wanted to be a BULLDAWG forever. Just a matter of Pruitt and Rocker transitioning into the UGA staff> Look for him to be in the SILVER BRITCHES in 2015!

It's never too late unless you don't come to the game.  It's a longshot but hey, that is how the game is played.

@DawgGoneIt You are correct and the headline was changed on this article to match what was said in the video. Last night there was a question mark and not a period. The facts are that a lot of the recruits and some recruiting journalists make a big deal out of who offered first and try and make it seem like the recruit has been disrespected somehow. A lot of those early offers that Adonis received are actually not committable offers they are come to camp and work out for us offers.

I've never gotten the whole "waited too long to offer" thing. Who cares? If we didn't want ya, we wouldn't offer you in the first place. Just be glad you got the offer son. Not every high school athlete gets the opportunity to play at big time universities and get a free education. Choose wisely.

@DawgGoneIt  I agree with your philosophy but too bad that's now how recruiting works nowadays. Maybe 10 years ago, though. And as far as Adonis, he is glad he got the UGA offer. Watch the video. Thanks
