Georgia football podcast: UGA RB commit Daijun Edwards once drew Nick Chubb comparison

Beginning of the show: Four-star running back Daijun Edwards committed to Georgia Thursday. Edwards — despite not always being the most talked about running back during the 2020 cycle — has seemingly remained in regular contact with UGA. He’s also been on DawgNation’s radar for a number of years — including a 2018 story in which is then-high school coach, Rush Propst, compared Edwards with former UGA running back Nick Chubb. I’ll discuss more on Edwards on today’s show, and address what his commitment means for UGA’s pursuit of Zach Evans.

10-minute mark: I share audio from former Bulldogs quarterback Jake Fromm’s appearance on the Will Cain Show on ESPN radio regarding why UGA hasn’t yet won a national championship and what it felt like to compete against Jacob Eason and Justin Fields.

15-minute mark: DawgNation’s recruiting insider Jeff Sentell joins the show. Some of the topics covered include…

  • Thoughts on Edwards
  • A discussion about Evans
  • A preview of five-star offensive tackle Broderick Jones and four-star center Sedrick Van Pran-Granger’s final official visits to Auburn and Florida this weekend
  • And an update on the recruits expected to visit UGA

35-minute mark: I take a look at other SEC headlines including a rumor about Jones’ Auburn interest and the debate surrounding former Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa and where he’ll be picked in the upcoming NFL draft.

End of show: I discuss the reported vandalism at Sanford Stadium by Emory students, preview a busy weekend for UGA athletics and share the Gator Hater Updater.
