Georgia football podcast: UGA transfer Tykee Smith already recruiting for the Bulldogs

Beginning of the show: Georgia has recently cultivated a recruiting pipeline to the city of Philadelphia. Running back D’Andre Swift and defensive back Mark Webb started it as part of the class of 2017, and it’s continued most recently with the announcement that transfer defensive back Tykee Smith -- who also hails from the City of Brotherly Love -- would be joining the Bulldogs.

And now it appears Smith has hopes that another elite recruit in southeast Pennsylvania could follow in those footsteps.

I’ll explain on today’s show what Smith’s recent message was to four-star defensive end Enai White about becoming the next prospect from The Keystone State to select UGA.
