Georgia football podcast: Report details UGA’s Atlanta area recruiting misses

Beginning of the show: Georgia unquestionably is a recruiting power, but it has struggled to control the market on blue -hip prospects in the Atlanta area, according to a recent study published by Football Study Hall. I’ll talk about why winning with local prospects is crucial to building a championship program. 

9-minute mark: I’ll discuss UGA’s addition of graduate-transfer punter Landon Stratton and share audio from 5-star wide receiver — and Bulldogs commit — Jadon Haselwood.

15-minute mark: DawgNation recruiting insider Jeff Sentell joins the show for the Marlow’s Tavern Tell-All. Some of the topics include:

  • What was Jadon Haselwood’s experience like at the Rose Bowl celebration?
  • How does Haselwood’s relationship with Justin Fields impact his recruitment/commitment to Georgia?
  • Assessing UGA’s competition for 5-star cornerback Andrew Booth.
  • What should be expected of Tyson Campbell’s freshman season?
  • Can Georgia overtake Florida for 5-star running back Trey Sanders?
  • What kind of a prospect is 2020 defensive end Myles Murphy and what are Georgia’s chances of landing him?

35-minute mark: I take a look at some other SEC headlines, including: Florida possibly going after graduate-transfer quarterback Joe Burrow; Dan Mullen addressing his return to Starkville; a picture of Jalen Hurts providing a possible clue about his future; and a former Alabama quarterback sticking up for Auburn.

Dawg Day Q&A: Which nonconference opponent would you most like to see UGA play?

End of show: I update the Gator Hater Countdown, provide more details on the DawgNation Retaliation T-shirts, and send well wishes to the Diamond Dawgs for their game vs. Georgia Tech at SunTrust Park on Tuesday night.
