Recap of Mark Richt mini-camp at UGA 

By Michael Carvell

Here’s a recap of UGA’s 7on-7 football camps the past few days, via Social Media:

The biggest news was the attendance of Trent Thompson, the 5-star defensive tackle from Westover High School who is rated as the nation’s No. 1 overall prospect. Thompson has admitted that he almost committed twice to UGA last year. He didn’t, but still lists the Bulldogs as his frontrunner over Auburn and Alabama, among others. Thompson will wait until signing day.

Trent Thompson spent a lot of time hanging out with UGA’s other 5-star commit, athlete Terry Godwin of Callaway High School. Godwin has caused some concern among UGA fans for taking several recent visits to both Alabama and Auburn.

UGA has struggled mightily this year with its recruitment of the state’s top offensive linemen. One guy the Bulldogs might consider now is Marist’s Sage Hardin.

Another intriguing OL prospect is Patrick Allen, a 4-star offensive lineman from Reistertown, Md. He reports a UGA offer:

One of the state’s top prospects for 2016 is North Gwinnett High School wide receiver Josh Imatorbhebhe. His older brother is North Gwinnett senior Daniel Imatorbhebhe, who is a tight end committed to Missouri. The older brother isn’t as highly recruited as the younger brother. Will that come back to bite some of the big colleges that didn’t recruit both brothers? Probably

Jaden hunter got offered by Louisville Sunday at their camp that's his second div one offer Indiana being the other. He missed the ole miss camp or that would be another. This kid is an upcoming sophomore . son of a former bulldog and his brother who is the starting safety for FSU also begged to get into uga sort of like the knemdiche brothers. Jaden will be a top prospect in the state and country trust me. The uga freshmen and sophomore camp is coming up there is no freshmen or sophomore in the country that is gonna block this kid. Ask Dallas warmack how good this kid is BC Dallas never blocks him either. If uga does not offer him at the frshemen sophomore camp I will question even more their evaluation ability. I know Pruitt will though BC he coached Tyler if not for Pruitt I bet uga would just sit their and wait till he is a Jr or sr with thirty offers much like they have done with other kids the fact that his dad played at uga and that fact hi that he is obviously gonna be a div one football player he should already have an offer from uga. Don't offer him at this camp and he will be a Seminole. I a huge bulldawg fan will see to it.

I would like to thank Will Friend for the fabulous job he has done with a line that has produced record points and yards. Blocking that springs our 3rd 4th and 5th tailbacks open for averages well above 5 yards a carry. I hope we start giving him the credit he deserves soon. I bet he proves it no fluke again this year!.

MC...Is Charlie Woerner, Scott's son? Isn't Scott teaching up in Rabun?

If that's the case, he is a special legacy. Scott was one of the greatest Bulldogs of all time.

WhiskeyBreath, what do you know about the ACCP Department. Exactly nothing.


You say all schools are required to test. Some report accurate tests. Many don't. Get my drift?


As for UGA reporting theirs to the AJC, you apparently don't live in GA or you would know that this state has an open records law. If you do live in GA, you are just trying to spin the truth or you are stupid.


As for Bama - a good academic school but more of an athletic minded school. Many of those former athletes stay in Bama to capitalize on their name, and therefore, Alabama remains behind as a state to Florida, Georgia, North Carolina and others. Backwoods. 


Jump on this!

Tampa Gator ....Justice can't be sweet if it is served on a platter of violations.  I do believe it is normal to feel like you turned a 'good one' on Miami but now is the time to be on the 'down low' with that enthusiasm, imho.

You know, kids are foolish to go to Ga.

Ga sets them up to fail.

What kid is not going to drink and or smoke pot in college?

Just like your kids did when they went to school.

Ga makes them take alcohol and substance test and

sends the results over to  Chip and the  AJC.

Chip then spins  it to make Ga look good. 

The school works very closely with the Athens police so they can

catch them for MIP.

Either way, the kid has a real good chance of getting a criminal record

or kicked out of school. 

Recruits are foolish to go there.

Seems like We are still dragging our feet. Alabama as usual and now Clemson are having a banner recruiting year. Will Friend is a joke.

Two biggest physical freaks I've seen in person this year. Randolph Clay ATH Gary McCrae and 2016 Rabun Co. ATH Charlie Woerner.

I guess Jake Rowe has not met the 15 year old Phenom Phreak Ben "Big Country" Cleveland... @ 6' 7" 326 lbs.. now that's hard to out physical

Mark Richt Mini camp went well... a lot of talent showed-out  .. a lot of new offers went out... G commits on the way... big hawg mollies..  

5* WSDE Josh Sweat 6' 5" 237 lbs Chesapeake, VA (Oscar Smith) will be visiting the UGA campus this Friday 6/20...

@TampaGator... Trenton Thompson has already turned down the offers you speak of... Trenton Thompson = extremely high character kid.

If Thompson is sold on being a Dawg he needs to commit now . With him on board it can only help in getting fence sitters on board. I hope he knows he can really help in our Recruiting and he doesn't need to wait until February.

News Flash......."Poetic justice on the recruiting tail for Florida today."


Florida just flipped a previous commit to Miami, a 4-star defensive back.  This on the heels of Miami associated person turning in Joker for having lunch during the dead period with a Miami area recruit. Got to love the justice found in sweet payback.....oh, so sweet.  .

@WhiskeyBreath I guess you are right. They would of course be much better off at Alabama, so that they don't get tested, and as long as they can play b all, that is all that matters to the coaches and the fans. After all, who cares what they kid does with his life. If he can't make it to the NFL, it doesn't matter, as long as he plays well enough to be useful to Alabama football. It certainly isn't you or the schools worry if they end up flipping burger for minimum wage after their playing days are over there.

It is just so much better and easier to go to a school that condones anything they can hide under the table.

Lord, you are surely one drunken moron.

@Bubbatavious Will Friend is a joke?

What Ga Line coach has been better?.

It was his line that got Ga in the SEC championship .

No assistant coach can reach his potential under Brother Richt. 

Lineman don't won't to go there because there looked at like meat heads. 

Ga people have no appreciation for lineman and the kids know it. 

Friend is too good for you humps.

And you know that, how?  I am talking about turning down "benefit."  And I was referencing what I think Bama does....as related to the RB that is driving a car he cannot afford to buy...nor his family.

@Dawg-Gawn By "freak," they are talking about freakishly athletic. Not necessarily big. And Jake has met Ben

@RandyHall Right Randy, that is going to happen. Mark it down.

@RedandBlackDAWG @WhiskeyBreath The NCAA requires all schools to 

provide test for drug screening and report to the NCAA. .  It does not require them to release that information to the media like Ga does with the AJC. 

Just stating the facts.

@gtcaryd @WhiskeyBreath

Ga has made it too easy to get busted.

Parents from Ga have told me they venture that one half the student 

body has had a MIP.

That is not my figures, that is Ga parents that have kids that got 

busted at  Ga. . 

I guess there is a lot of revenue in it.

@WhiskeyBreath..... Richt needs a good line coach who knows how to run block and just not to pass block... You ever wonder why Richt  coached teams settles for a lot of field goals when its gets close to the goal line?  Yes we are decent at pass blocking but you gotta run too in the SEC.  Too bad our line couldnt run against Vandy when it needed crucial first downs last year..... Too bad Clemson forced 6 straight 3 and outs last year.....

If you already know what I am thinking... why are you asking me a question?

"Everyone will have to give account on the day of judgment for every empty word they have spoken." ~ Matthew 12:36 (NIV)

Tampa, "I pray that your love may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight, so that you may be able to discern what is best and may be pure and blameless for the day of Christ... to the glory and praise of God" ~ Phillippians 1:9-11 (NIV)

Dawg-Gawn thinks he is a better Georgia recruiting reporter than you.  He certainly thinks he knows more about Georgia football than you.  Problem is, he is posting on here with the rest of us while you are posting the story about recruiting on here.  He does not get that difference.

@RED DOG 77 


First, Red Dog, the Gators have not committed a major NCAA violation in 25 years. And, if Joker did what they say he did, then the Gators addressed it immediately by taking a man's $500,000 a year job away from him.  And, I doubt Muschamp or Foley think breaking NCAA rules is relevant to anything but stupid.  Sort of like your post.

Thompson is going to be a force for the Dawgs in the future.  Not sure why the kid has not committed to Georgia already.  That is where he is going to play.

@Dawg-Gawn 


I asked you two questions that you did not answer......but I did assume.....but did not know....the answers..  However, your posts tend to give me a good idea of your general though process and view of others.


What I do know is that you post reports on an AJC Georgia recruiting site as if you are an AJC recruiting reporter and have the same access to Georgia coaches and all the daily personal contacts with recruits and coaches that Michael has as a real beat reporter for the AJC.....while never posting your sources for your "inside" information that can be gathered from any recruiting site.  When you post things, Gawn, just tell us where you heard or read it.  It makes what you post more legit.  And, by the way, congrats on being nearly the best Bible quoting, Baptist preacher in Georgia as well.  Congrats on your two day jobs.  You do one of them very well.


And...finally.....it was obvious that Michael was talking about the athletic ability of the two recruits.  Those two are that, while the recruit you posted about is more of a pile mover.  But, as a good Christian, you have to be right all the time and everyone else has to be wrong.

@TampGator1 @MichaelCarvell 


It might surprise you to learn that there actually are people out there that know more about UGA football than MC. MC is still a young man and there are hundreds if not thousands of people in DawgNation that may know more out UGA football than MC. I doubt very seriously that I am one of those people but I am familiar with what went on with Wally Butts, Johnny Griffin and others that preceded the Vince Dooley era.


MC, of course, likely is the most knowledgeable about Vince Dooley days  and up through today. Had you said "knows more  about UGA recruiting' you likely would be correct but your contributions look more like a "K I S S I N G

U P  F E S T " .

That is mighty big of you, Dawg Gawn.  Only if Michael would put the same kind of effort you put into reporting about Georgia recruiting, correct?  But no one is that good, are they?

Also, name me one football player that has ever been referred to as a "freak" that was not only big, but unusually gifted of agility and swiftness?:  That would not describe your guy.

@RuePaulJohnson 


True.  But every team that recruits him knows he is headed to Georgia.  Not sure how many "benefits" will be rolled out to him,  but a fancy Chrysler Charger might help change his mind. A Bama coach just needs to avoid offering it to him over lunch during the dead period.  I am sure a loyal Bama booster would be available for a lunch date with a 5-star recruit, however.

@KeepOnSmilingWetWillie 


You noticed incorrectly, Wetster.  See the story about Joker for the style you refuse to see.  And I have not read anywhere that explains how your star RB can purchase a car that neither he nor his family can afford, based on what I have read about the family. Inquiring minds want to know.
