Georgia football podcast: Mekhail Sherman pushing for other 5-star recruits to commit to UGA

Beginning of the show: 5-star linebacker — and recent Georgia commit — Mekhail Sherman attempted to leverage 4-star offensive lineman Tate Ratledge’s UGA pledge to entice 5-star running backs Kendall Milton and Marshawn Lloyd to join them as part of the Bulldogs 2020 class. I’ll discuss on today’s show why Sherman’s social media behavior might be worth paying a little more attention to than typical recruits. I’ll also share some audio of what Ratledge had to say after picking Georgia Monday.
