Early Signing Day: Georgia football live updates
6:30 p.m. — Kirby Smart has met with the media and discussed what is going on with Justin Fields. Smart said that the freshman quarterback is exploring his options but that Georgia would like him to remain with the program.
“We have been very open and honest that we want him to stay,” Smart said.
Smart added that defensive back Deangelo Gibbs is not currently with the team either. Gibbs was a highly-sought after recruiting target, but he has not lived up to his 4-star billing as he has played sparingly.
5:25 p.m. — DawgNation’s Jeff Sentell caught up with 5-star linebacker Nakobe Dean for a very interesting Q&A on why he ended up picking UGA.
