Beginning of the show: 4-star offensive tackle Tate Ratledge’s commitment ceremony was a day to remember at the Darlington School in Rome, Ga. according to DawgNation recruiting insider Jeff Sentell — who was on hand for Ratledge’s announcement. Jeff joins the show right off the top today to give more details about what happened with Ratledge — including parts that weren’t captured by the DawgNation video channels. Jeff also explains what UGA is getting in Ratledge and why Bulldogs offensive line coach Sam Pittman was thrilled to hear the news.
