Beginning of the show: Five-star safety James Williams recently transferred to American Heritage High School — a football power in Florida, and a program that’s produced a steady pipeline of elite recruits to Georgia, including former Bulldogs running back Sony Michel. I’ll share on today’s show how UGA is trying to use its recent history at American Heritage to sway Williams, and why Michel seemingly approves of the tactic.

10-minute mark: I discuss the ways in which UGA coach Kirby Smart is utilizing video conference meetings to instruct players and prepare for the upcoming season.

15-minute mark: Former UGA All-American — and DawgNation analyst — Jon Stinchcomb joins the show. Some of the topics covered include…

  • The proper mix of in-state and national recruits for UGA
  • An evaluation of four-star UGA offensive line commit Micah Morris
  • And the impact of offensive line coach Matt Luke on Lewis’ decision

30-minute mark: I take a look at other SEC headlines including why UGA fans shouldn’t be too quick to assume ESPN is out to get them, a recent poll that suggests fans will be hesitant to return to college football stadiums once the coronavirus ban is lifted and an Auburn basketball commit’s humorous way of celebrating his pledge.

End of show: I share the Gator Hater Updater.
