Georgia football podcast: Hype surrounding Jake Fromm, D’Andre Swift can benefit UGA

Beginning of the show: Georgia quarterback Jake Fromm and running back D’Andre Swift are listed among the favorites for the 2019 Heisman Trophy. I’ll explain on today’s show why it would obviously be great if either player made a run at the award, but why Fromm’s candidacy might have greater reverberations for UGA.

10-minute mark: I’ll discuss a recent assertion from Sports Illustrated’s Andy Staples that UGA could be building a program destined for lasting success similar to what Clemson has done.

15-minute mark: DawgNation’s recruiting insider Jeff Sentell joins the show. Some of the topics covered include…

  • The recruiting impact expected from new tight ends coach Todd Hartley
  • Whether it should concern UGA fans the program still hasn’t hired a defensive backs coach or named a defensive coordinator
  • New details on John Rhys Plumlee after his Mississippi State visit
  • Reaction to 4-star 2020 wide receiver Leonard Manuel’s Florida commitment
  • An update on 4-star defensive back Kaiir Elam
  • And a preview of DawgNation’s appearance at the Marlow’s in Buford Tuesday night

35-minute mark: I take a look at other SEC headlines including the new football facility at South Carolina, an example of the improvement Dan Mullen brought to Florida, LSU linebacker Devin White’s NFL declaration, Former Tennessee quarterback Tee Martin’s return to Knoxville in a yet-to-be-determined coaching role, and a high-profile quarterback transfer’s recent Auburn visit.
