Georgia football podcast: ESPN snubs UGA freshmen in spring preview

Beginning of the show: Georgia had the consensus No. 2 recruiting class for 2019, and it has an impressive list of early enrollees. However, none of those incoming freshmen were highlighted in a recent article on freshmen to watch from ESPN. I’ll explain on today’s show why ESPN is wrong — even if it isn’t that big a deal.
