Georgia football podcast: UGA fans hoping for ‘flip’ before National Signing Day

Beginning of the show: Georgia fans are hoping to flip away a committed prospect before National Signing Day, and the two most likely candidates for that might be 4-star defensive back Nick Cross — currently committed to Florida State — and 5-star wide receiver George Pickens, an Auburn pledge. I’ll discuss on today’s show why DawgNation’s recruiting insider Jeff Sentell thinks Cross is more likely to happen than Pickens. I’ll also share some other crucial recruiting news involving 4-star defensive back Kaiir Elam, tight end Brett Seither and more.
