Georgia football podcast: “It’s never over in recruiting” and that’s probably good news for UGA
Beginning of the show: Five-star cornerback Tony Grimes is set to announce his commitment Tuesday night, and Georgia is one of the finalists. However, there are plenty of fans and analysts that assume the Bulldogs won’t win the battle for Grimes — at least for now.
Yet one of the most common refrains in recruiting is that the competition for a player’s services doesn’t end until he’s signed his letter of intent. Georgia coach Kirby Smart has made that point before as well.
I’ll discuss more about Grimes on today’s show — including what happens next if he chooses a school other than UGA Tuesday night.
