Georgia football podcast: 5-star DT Travon Walker’s upcoming announcement pivotal moment for UGA’s 2019 class

Beginning of the show: I discuss the decision by Walker to announce his upcoming commitment on Tuesday. The defensive line has been a point of contention for Georgia fans. Simply put, Walker is the most important decision for 2019 for the Bulldogs. Georgia coach Kirby Smart has played a big role in pushing Walker to Athens, and we’ll find out soon if those efforts will pay off in a large way.

12-minute mark: I discuss how Elijah Holyfield looks buff in a recent photo captured by Scott Sinclair’s Twitter account. It’s impressive to see Holyfield’s physical build and to consider what he could mean for Georgia in years to come.

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

  • Towers’ thoughts on Holyfield and how Georgia’s running back pecking order could play out
  • Towers’ perspective on Smart’s comments about Natrez Patrick and Deangelo Gibbs
  • Towers’ view on whether Jonathan Ledbetter seems comfortable in a leadership role with the Bulldogs
  • Whether the South Carolina game will be a good test for Georgia
  • Towers’ takeaways from Greg McElroy’s comments about Jake Fromm

35-minute mark: I look at other headlines from around the SEC, including the predicted order of finish as selected by the conference’s media members and the fact that no Georgia players were named to the SEC’s preseason first-team offense.

40-minute mark: I unveil the latest Dawg Day Q&A, which asks which Georgia player is a lock to make all-SEC and which Bulldogs player is a possible dark horse to receive the honor.

End of Show: I update the Gator Hater Countdown.
