Brandon Adams

Georgia football is the No. 1 topic every day on DawgNation Daily — the daily podcast for Georgia Bulldogs fans. Catch up on everything happening with UGA athletics with host Brandon Adams and the DawgNation experts as they break down the latest Georgia football recruiting news and discuss coach Kirby Smart’s quest to return the Bulldogs to the top of the SEC. On episode No. 933 (April 26, 2019) of the podcast, Georgia fans can hear a discussion about UGA linebacker Jaden Hunter reportedly entering the transfer portal and about how the first-round of the NFL draft once again proved the value of recruiting.

Georgia football podcast: NFL draft proves once again the value of recruiting

Beginning of the show: Georgia linebacker Jaden Hunter was reported to have placed his name in the transfer portal as our show was beginning on Friday. I’ll address that topic, and explain why the NFL draft once again validated the importance of recruiting rankings.

10-minute mark: I’ll have a reaction to 5-star tight end Arik Gilbert’s recent comments to DawgNation recruiting insider Jeff Sentell.

15-minute mark: Jeff joins the show. Some of the topics covered include…

  • Jeff’s thoughts on Gilbert
  • Reaction to Deandre Baker — a former 3-star recruit — being selected in the first round
  • Whether UGA’s defensive line recruiting efforts are harmed by Clemson’s big draft night at that position
  • Thoughts on 4-star defensive back Dwight McGlothern — who recently dropped a sizable hint about UGA on Twitter
  • And an update on former UGA signee Nadab Joseph — who’s recently racked up a number of scholarship offers

35-minute mark: I take a look at other SEC headlines including suggestions of impropriety involving Clemson’s football team, Texas A&M coach Jimbo Fisher attempting to calm concerns from Aggies fans that he could one day jump to LSU and some recent comments from South Carolina coach Will Muschamp about how the Gamecocks have shown improvement over his tenure.

40-minute mark: I’ll explain why it’s fair to question Clemson about the perception it plays an easy schedule and I’ll preview a busy weekend for UGA athletics.

End of show: I share the Gator Hater Updater.
