Georgia football podcast: Multiple 5-star recruits mention UGA among finalists

Beginning of the show: A number of five-star recruits made announcements over the Independence Day weekend including offensive tackle Amarius Mims, linebacker Smael Mondon and defensive tackle Maason Smith. Mims indicated he’s nearing a commitment decision and Mondon and Smith updated their list of finalists — both of which included the Bulldogs. I’ll discuss more on those prospects on today’s show and briefly mention an odd message from five-star cornerback Tony Grimes as well.

10-minute mark: I address the challenge awaiting UGA as it seeks a replacement for last year’s Lou Groza Award winner, Rodrigo Blankenship.

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

  • Whether UGA fans should be concerned about the current state of the Bulldogs’ 2021 class
  • Whether Florida or Alabama should be viewed as UGA’s most important game
  • And whether the UGA-Florida game is more important for Bulldogs coach Kirby Smart or Florida’s Dan Mullen

35-minute mark: I discuss other SEC headlines including Texas A&M coach Jimbo Fisher receiving some NCAA sanctions related to recruiting violations and five-star quarterback Caleb Williams’ commitment announcement.

40-minute mark: I briefly discuss the University System of Georgia’s decision to mandate masks for students in college classrooms this fall and address how this could impact college football’s eventual return.

End of show: I share the Gator Hater Updater.
