Kirby Smart has landed commitments on back-to-back days.

What social media is saying about Georgia’s recent commitments

Georgia football isn’t letting up on the recruiting trail, as the Bulldogs have landed commitment on consecutive days.

Micah Morris, a 4-star offensive tackle from Kingsland, Ga., got things started on Wednesday night. He is the No. 73 player in the 247Sports Composite rankings and the No. 11 offensive tackle.

Then on Thursday, the Bulldogs added a running back to the mix as they secured a commitment from 4-star running back Lovasea Carroll. He plays for powerhouse IMG Academy but is originally from Warrenton, Ga.

The two commitments earned a double shot of Go Dawgs from head coach Kirby Smart.

Both commitments also got a rise out of running backs coach Dell McGee. Obviously he was excited about the future addition to his own room. But McGee also took time to praise offensive line coach Matt Luke for his work in landing the services of Morris.

With Morris and Carroll now in the class, the Bulldogs have the nation’s No. 8 class. Georgia has the fewest commitments of any team in the top-10 at the moment, with just six. Clemson and Ohio State are the only two programs with a higher average recruit ranking than the Bulldogs.

As for some of Georgia’s other 2021 commitments, like 4-star athlete David Daniel and 5-star quarterback Brock Vandagriff, both were excited about the new additions.

And as is almost always the case, the Georgia fan base was excited about the additions as well.

If you choose to include Carroll as an in-state commitment, given he’s originally from the state of Georgia, all six of Georgia’s commitments at the moment come from the state of Georgia. The Bulldogs have had much more success in recruiting the Peach State to start this class than they have in the past two cycles.

Georgia football 2021 recruiting commitments

Georgia isn’t likely to be done at either running back or on the offensive line. Donovan Edwards, a 4-star running back from Michigan, should be seen as one of the top overall targets for the Georgia 2021 recruiting class. Cody Brown, a 4-star running back from Lilburn, Ga., is also a target the Bulldogs are chasing after.

As for the offensive line, Georgia is still very much in the running for 5-star prospect Amarius Mims as well as 4-star prospects Terrence Ferguson and Dylan Fairchild. All three are in-state prospects as well.

These latest two commitments, along with the addition of 4-star defensive end Jonathan Jefferson in March, have all occurred during the dead period as mandated by the NCAA. This prevents coaches and players from visiting each other. The dead period is currently slated to extend to May 31.
