Mark Richt on UGA’s chain of command 

By Michael Carvell

UGA and Georgia Tech coaches hit the road this week for the NCAA’s spring evaluation period.

They will visit high schools across the state and the Southeast to check on prospects.

Mark Richt offered some insight on UGA’s chain of command in both evaluating and offering a high school football player. (He references recruiting coordinator Bryan McClendon, linebackers coach Mike Ekeler, and defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt)

“Everybody in their (recruiting territory) needs to locate players that can play championship football, that can handle the academics at Georgia, and that can also graduate from Georgia,” Richt said. “And we’re also looking for guys who are going to behave in the right way.

“So that’s (the area recruiter’s) job to find him, and we certainly want the position coach to want him, too. But the coordinator is also a big part of that decision-making process. You know, when McClendon finds a guy who is a middle linebacker, we want Ekeler to see him. And usually they watch it together. Pruitt, Eckert and the whole defensive staff are probably looking at the film together. But there may be a time when Ekeler is watching him by himself and really likes what he’s seeing, especially when it’s during the season and things are flying fast. He may say, ‘Hey, Jeremy, I need you to look at this guy. I want to offer this guy.’ So (Pruitt) will look at it, and they’ll agree that they want to offer this guy. And then they’ll come to me. Then I will put the final stamp on it.”

So does a UGA offer have to come directly from Richt? Or does an assistant have the freedom to do it? (This recently was a point of confusion)

“I’m not saying that the assistant coaches won’t be the ones to say to the prospects ‘that you’re offered a scholarship’ — or to the high school coach, ‘we’re going to offer your kid,’” Richt explained. “But before we do that, I want to approve it. A lot of times I will be the one to make the offer over the phone, or when he’s here on an unofficial visit. But there are plenty of times that the assistant coaches or coordinators will let them know as well.

“As far as the go ahead, I want to make sure I see them and know about them before we do that.”

POAD vs. DawgGoneIt   I got to call it a draw, but i am sure they will go at it again today in the rematch.

1. Being prepared for life after football STARTS when the High School Player chooses a college. If their mindset is only on football and not as much about their Degree and future employment, then they are setting themselves for Depression and Disillusion.  Doing internships during the summer in the field you want work after graduation will go a long way in being prepared for Real Life. TECH has a great program for athletes and business.


2. Sorry but I think RED BULL is dangerous. 


3. You Dogs call TECH fans and students NERDS? HAHA CONLEY is letting his Freak Nerd Flag fly high and proud.......UGa redneck nerds


4. Do we get to see Yoculan Living with Her DEVIL WATER Selling Married lover Don Leebern too?


5. When is Richt going on trial for BILKING UGa of Millions for fraudulently acting as a Head Football Coach? LOL just kidding.


6. The DRAFT is too late. This is terrible the waiting and the over analysis is ridiculous. It is only a few weeks until we see where Box Score gets drafted. Still saying 4th round.


7. the Cow College of Georgia has some smart COWGIRLS. Are we sure the Swimmers actually attended the classes and really made the Grade? 


8. Good Luck Tennis Dogs.


9. Good Luck Lady Golf dog but don't think you will get much love on these blogs if you are not a Guy and play Football.


10. Don't worry Diamond Dogs nobody on these blogs even know you exist. See you at the TED in a few weeks. Do you guys know who the Kennesaw State OWLS are now?

I bet POAD drives himself crazy at night thinking about Georgia crying in his little room screaming "I HATE GEORGIAAAAA!!" as he cries himself to sleep. WAHHHH I HATE GEORGIAAA!!!! PLEASE LET THEM STOP KICKING MY TEAM'S ARSE EVERY YEAR! Face it Toad, you couldn't beat us even at 50% with a new QB, on your home field, after taking a 20-0 lead. If any year was the year for GT to FINALLY beat UGA, last year was the year. We were injured, had the worst D in recent UGA memory/history, it was on your home field (where you haven't beaten UGA since 1999 by the way) and you had a 20-0 lead and you're a RUNNING football team and couldn't melt the clock against us. Man it must suck to be you.

After losing to CLEM&SON Richt said WE(UGA) still have all of our season Goals ahead of us.... 

meaning.... We(UGa) are looking to win the SEC...also meaning We Have Bigger Fish To Fry even after a loss to the ACC in an OoC game.

Smoke that like CROWELL, the OGLETREE Bros and JHC smoke a JAY.

@gtcaryd You need to recheck your comment from yesterday about the UGA women receiving the #1 seed in tennis. What is wrong with me congratulating the school I love and wishing them well in the NCAA tournament?

@POAD2014  Get a life holy crap you spend your entire day posting on another team's page. Literally. Do you have a job? Go to school? Something? I'm beginning to think you live in an old folk's home where they let you have a computer all to yourself. Or you're a slob living at home in the basement all day.

@DawgGoneIt time to get your splatter shield up... the spit will be a flyin' when he replies.  


My guess is he either flunked out of Georgia, wasn't accepted, or was dumped by a girl that went to Georgia.  I can't fathom anybody being as deranged by blind hatred as this sociopath.  In the old days somebody would have said "somthin just ain't right with that boy".

@POAD2014  and just  why are  the  4 players  from GT suspended the  1st  2  games? Smoke it yourself.

@POAD2014 only in your twisted mind does that mean "we have bigger fish to fry".  You are beyond pathetic.  English needs a new word to describe how low you are.  Just damn

as an auburn fan, I can look at all these comments objectively, and the conclusion I draw from this is that man....it must really suck to be a GT fan here. your biggest rival is arguably the most consistent program over the last 15 years in what is unanimously considered the most dominant conference in college football, yet, somehow, you tech fans have found the nerve to come here and try and do a little smack talking? its a little different over in Alabama where both our schools are nationally relevant and one of the two have been in the natty each of the past 5 years, which is unheard of. but tech....what has tech done in the last 30 years?? sorry to all the tech fans who do enjoy a thoughtful foot ball conversation but for the trolls, just stop. you look REALLY bad. wreck tech war damn eagle lol

@Dawgilama neither you or I know why the tech players are suspended. You are ASSUMING and you know what that means. You have NOTHING.

@NCDawg That is EXACTLY what it means. ONLY in your mind "Our Goals Are Still Ahead Of Us" doesn't Mean THERE ARE BIGGER GOALS for our team(SEC CG GAME) aka BIGGER FISH TO FRY( CPJ looking at the ACC CG) you maroon.

@twelveofthirteen Oh yea 12of13, is that the same AU that is a cheater since they have been relevant in the last half dozen years. What has Tech done in the last 30 years? Was he out of the country in 1990. Weak post 12of13. I guess in regards to "most consistent" is like the blind date with a good personality.

@twelveofthirteen Who cares what somebody thinks that post on a blog. You mean fans of the COW COLLEGE(what UGa fans call Auburn) sides with UGa and UGa fans(the Cow College of Georgia) side with AUBURN is funny.


Auburn fan Remember the MUTTS hatred for Fairley and Scam? They HATE YOU. 

MUTTS remember FAIRLEY? Scam? your CHOKE last year and MARSHALL now playing for the cow college?


I guess you SEC PUNKS love your THUGS more than the TRUTH. What a POS Conference and group of fans.

@gtcaryd @thebucket It's all good! You are like WetWillie and I can tell that you only respond to the fringe elements of the Dawg nation for the most part. None of us are perfect and we love our schools and sometimes we all go too far. Here's hoping the GT teams success as well unless they face UGA!

@DawgGoneIt  I OWN my Farm and Home. I OWN my Company Trucks. I OWN my cars. I don't pay the BANK so I can keep them.

POAD2014
POAD2014

@DawgGoneIt having things is not the same as OWNING them. IF you have to keep making a payment on them every month or they can be taken away means you DO NOT OWN THEM.

POAD2014

@DawgGoneIt  what do you OWN? Congrats on working hard to get a scholarship if it is a full ride that took a lot of work if it is HOPE not so much.

@POAD2014 @DawgGoneIt  Having things is the same as owning them. It's yours. In your possession. Didn't say they were paid off. But I do have each. I don't live with my parents and sometimes I might ride my scooter DEPENDING on the weather and if I wanna save GAS. But luckily, I don't have to worry about that now! Because school's out sucker

POAD2014

@DawgGoneIt Then you don't OWN your place and you haven't paid off your car and you are lucky college is paid for by other means.

@POAD2014 @DawgGoneIt  There's a thing called an academic scholarship. You can also get loans to help with college education. If you have a scholarship, it helps matters. But you wouldn't know anything about that

@POAD2014 @DawgGoneIt  In my free time, I post here. But unlike you, I'm a fan of the team. I don't spew negativity about another team I claim to hate. That shows that you have no life. Are you embarrassed that you suck at life?

@DawgGoneIt as great as you? that is amusing. When you OWN something you earned and don't OWE the bank for your car house and school loans then get back to me about how Great you are.

@DawgGoneIt I didn't ask you to prove anything. You tell a nice story. You have nothing better to do than respond on a blog. I guess UGa is a REAL DIFFICULT school since you don't have to study and can waste time on a blog at all hours.

@POAD2014 @DawgGoneIt  I don't have to prove anything to you and I don't really care if you believe me or not. That's not for you to decide. My point is you're a dumbnuts who has nothing better to do other than hate on UGA for some odd reason. Must be boring in Atlanta

@Dawgilama never even tried to get in UGa or GT they didn't have what I was looking for in a college. In the 80's I could have been accepted in UGa with no problem. TECH probably not. I would have been on the line.

@POAD2014 @NCDawg the bigger fish to fry comment was a backhanded insult to Georgia.  CPJ is like all of you Tech people... you know you are owned by Georgia and just can't own up to it.  He was blowing off the importance of the game because he couldn't admit that getting owned by Georgia hurts.  But you can't put to coherent thoughts together so why am I wasting my time explaining the difference.  Just damn
