Georgia football podcast: National magazines heap praise on UGA’s linebackers

Beginning of the show: Both Lindy’s and Athlon Sports say that Georgia’s linebackers will be the best in the country this season. I’ll talk about how that linebacking corps could lead UGA to a dominant defense.

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

  • An evaluation of UGA’s latest commit — 3-star defensive end Jaevon Becton
  • The impact Georgia assistant Shane Beamer had on Becton’s decision
  • How the environment for G-Day helps lure recruits
  • Whether the Bulldogs can have more recruiting success near Becton’s home in the talent-rich Virginia coastal region
  • The latest news on 4-star offensive lineman Trey Hill
  • A preview of the camp led by Georgia coach Kirby Smart this weekend in Athens, Ga.

25-minute mark: I look at some other headlines from around the SEC including the potential rule change that could be announced by the SEC that could pave the way for former Notre Dame quarterback Malik Zaire to transfer to Florida, a critical assessment of Tennessee coach Butch Jones from a USA Today columnist, and a defensive player transferring from LSU.

End of show: I talk about Georgia quarterback Jacob Eason providing a reminder this week of why he was such a highly-regarded prospect coming out of high school.
