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. 937 (May 6, 2019) of the podcast, Georgia fans can hear a discussion about why at least one media member thinks UGA safety Richard LeCounte could become a first-round pick if he leaves school early for the 2020 NFL draft.

Georgia football podcast: Surprising UGA player mentioned as possible 2020 first-round pick

Beginning of the show: Georgia safety Richard LeCounte will be a first-round pick in the 2020 NFL draft according to Bleacher Report. I’ll discuss on today’s show why LeCounte’s presence in this discussion might be a bit surprising to some, but should maybe also suggest LeCounte’s value to UGA is greater than some realize.

10-minute mark: I discuss DawgNation Days of Summer — a series of fun events this summer that provides the opportunity for UGA fans to hang out, talk football and enjoy a getaway this summer.

15-minute mark: DawgNation’s Chip Towers joins the show. Some of the topics covered include…

  • Chip’s thoughts on LeCounte
  • Reaction to a video that seems to show UGA running back Zamir White showing off some lateral quickness in the wake of his ACL injury recovery
  • Chip’ description of the scene after spending time with former UGA coach and athletic director Vince Dooley last week after Dooley found out he’d have the field at Sanford Stadium named after him.
  • And thoughts on Chip’s piece profiling Thomas Mars — the attorney at the center of many college football transfers

30-minute mark: I take a look at other SEC headlines including Clemson’s recruiting momentum and how it’s impacting Florida, where UGA falls in the Sporting News’ post-spring way-too-early top 25 and a possible candidate emerging for athletic director opening at Texas A&M.

35-minute mark: I discuss the Diamond Dawgs sweep of Florida and a Gators commit sharing a photo of himself in a UGA uniform.

End of show: I share the Gator Hater Updater.
