Jake Fromm is the biggest remaining recruit for the Georgia football team in 2020. Clearly.
There was a lot of talk over the weekend about recruiting. Georgia picked up a pair of 5-stars over the last week over the recruiting trail. The news from Richard LeCounte III was another 5-star coming back for the 2020 team.
That leaves a Fromm stay-or-go regarding a fourth and final season at UGA or an NFL rookie year in 2020 as the big remaining piece for the roster.
Georgia will remain a bonafide national championship contender if Fromm returns for the 2020 season. The thought of the Bulldogs going on the road in Tuscaloosa for the 2020 SEC opener would certainly not seem as daunting with Fromm back.
Here’s a quick read at the current moving pieces of the decision:
- DawgNation has learned Fromm is expected to meet with Georgia coach Kirby Smart today to discuss returning to the team in 2020.
- Contrary to what most might think, there was very little, if any, discussion on the NFL decision involving Fromm until after the Sugar Bowl.
- That should come as no surprise to those who know Fromm, what he stands for and what the 2019 season meant to him in Athens.
- The decision should come shortly after the meeting with Smart on Monday.
- Expect Fromm to take the same analysis to the decision as he does his job in the pocket. 1) Get a pre-snap read; 2) Find the right call; 3) Go through his progressions; 4) Execute it and not look back.
- The thought of Georgia opening up things more offensively will be discussed. That’s something that Fromm would very likely want to see.
- It might get lost for analysts and fans, but the pro-style attack was not what Fromm was best at coming out of high school. He threw for more than 12,000 yards in one of the toughest regions of Georgia high school football leading an offense that certainly will resemble the way he has successfully led Georgia’s two-minute and tempo drives during his time at UGA.
- Georgia has certainly brought in the pieces on offense with its 2020 recruiting class to do just that. Expect at least two, if three or more, of the new 2020 signees to make a similar splash in the wide receiver room as Dominick Blaylock and George Pickens did for the 2019 team.
Jake Fromm decision: The things that will matter here
What will the offense look like in 2020? Will it take another step toward being more wide open than in the previous years? Georgia has certainly added more firepower at the WR and TE positions in order to make that happen.
Fromm’s draft grade will also be taken into consideration, too.
The main thing is the decision should come swiftly after that for both parties. Both Fromm and Georgia need to start putting together their plans for 2020.
This decision from the three-year starter is certainly the last remaining piece that is in play for the 2020 roster.
Whatever the decision might be, Fromm has no doubt earned a special place in Georgia football lore for what he has already accomplished during his time in Athens.
If he returns for a fourth season, he will only add to a career arc that includes a trio of SEC East Championships, an SEC championship, a Rose Bowl college football playoff victory and an unbeaten record against Georgia rivals Florida, Tennessee and Georgia Tech.
His 36-7 mark as the quarterback of record for the Bulldogs places him in very rare air among the best quarterbacks in Bulldog football history.
