Lovasea’ Carroll: DawgNation goes 1-on-1 with the elite RB commitment

Want to attack every day with the latest UGA football recruiting info? That’s what the Intel brings. This entry covers the latest “Before the Hedges” interview for DawgNation with 4-star RB commitment Lovasea’ Carroll in the 2021 class. 

Confident. Considerate. Eager. Respectful.

Each of the above terms could be applied to the impression Lovasea’ Carroll left with more than 20,000 viewers after his 1-on-1 interview with DawgNation on Wednesday night.

The 6-foot-1, 200-pound rising senior was the guest this week on the live “Before the Hedges” program.

He took the time to chat about what he’s doing these days, what life is like in quarantine, and a few other aspects regarding his commitment to UGA. We also brought up the subject of perhaps the biggest Georgia Bulldog fan in his family.

She’s at least the most well-respected.

The one-time silent commitment had a lively Q&A exchange with DawgNation. The broadcast was also able to set aside the second half of the interview segment for fans to pepper Carroll, too.

Georgia DB commitment David Daniel was watching. He had the first question for Carroll from the audience during the live stream.

The wide-ranging conversation covered the following:

  • What his great-grandmother Ellen Grier means to him
  • What have been his fastest times in the 100 meters running track?
  • How did running backs coach Dell McGee describe his fit in the new Todd Monken offense? 
  • What it would be like to run behind the ideal Georgia line class in 2021? 
  • How the current UGA commits ganged up to show love to 5-star OT target Amarius Mims 
  • Why the 2021 commits plan to do more of that in the future 
  • Why did he choose UGA and why does he still love that decision?
  • What is he doing to stay sharp as an athlete during the quarantine? 
  • Are other schools still trying to flip him?
  • What it was like moving from just outside Augusta to play for boarding school powerhouse IMG Academy in Florida?
  • Does he still plan to take all five of his official visits?

Check out the full interview below. The rest of the weekly “Before the Hedges” program follows the first segment with Carroll.

The rest of the program counts down who DawgNation sees as the current “Top Targets” for the 2021 recruiting cycle in Athens.

This week’s list includes three new names among the top 14 targets for this class.
