What social media is saying about Georgia football heading into next phase of preseason calendar

Most of college football is advancing into the next stage of preseason prep on Friday, as schools will now be entering the summer walk-through portion of the preseason calendar.

This newstage is the next step up from mandatory workouts, as schools can now have up to one hour a day of walk-throughs with a football. Essentially, this will allow teams to start installing some plays, though obviously without any contact or pads. On-field coaches will also be able to have meetings with their players, whether that be team-wide, positional or 1-on-1 for up to an hour a day.

Georgia though has to wait until Sunday to get started with that portion of the NCAA’s preseason calendar, due to Georgia’s season-opener against Virginia taking place on Sept. 7 as opposed to Sept. 5.

So in the meantime, the Bulldogs are still grinding through the mandatory workout portion of the offseason. Players are once again working out, with cameras allowed to capture them going through drills.

And the various Georgia football social media accounts captured what some of those workouts have looked like.

As for what some of the online chatter is saying about the Georgia football program, it was a tough start to the week on the recruiting front. The Bulldogs saw one of their top targets, 5-star safety, James Williams announce his commitment to Miami. Williams had long been a Georgia target and the announcement itself turned many heads and left many Georgia fans grumbling.

But like life, recruiting marches on. Wednesday saw the Bulldogs land a commitment from 2022 prospect CJ Washington, which brightened the mood of a number of coaches.

And in regards to missing out on Williams, 4-star Georgia commit David Daniel quickly made a public push towards 4-star safety Terrian Arnold. Daniel has been one of the leaders of putting together Georgia’s 2021 recruiting class, along with quarterback Brock Vandagriff and running back Lovasea Carroll.

As far as the best thing to come from Georgia football social media this week, it’s an easy choice. Some of the worthy contenders include the new jersey numbers for various Georgia freshmen and transfers. And there were both Malik Herring and George Pickens highlight tapes.

But the runaway winner comes via safety Richard LeCounte. The senior safety surprised one of his fans who was set to have heart surgery this week. WJCL’s Frank Sulkowski captured some of the interaction and it’s well worth your time.
