From time to time, the staff at DawgNation will answer direct questions from readers about subjects pertinent to UGA football. This installment reflects the opinion of a few recruits after the big SEC road win at South Carolina this past weekend.
Georgia 41, South Carolina 17.
There were a handful of crossover recruits in attendance for that result last Saturday at Williams-Brice Stadium.
What sort of impression did that leave in the minds of recruits?
That was the sort of question that a reader wanted to know about as well. Or at least I think it was a reader and not some sort of ghost or clone account from the fella who likes to eat at Waffle House and goes by the handle DawgNation Daily.
@jeffsentell I'm glad the DAWGS showed out yesterday but, lets get down to business… I'm channeling my inner @DawgNationDaily , What did the SC recruits at the game thing about that butt whooping? 🤣🤣🤣

When DawgNation asks, we try to answer.
Here is a sampling of opinion that DawgNation was able to derive from a few select recruits about the game.
4-star CB Tyrique Stevenson (2019)
Miami Southridge HS/Miami, Fla.
Nation’s No. 5 CB / No. 41 overall
“They came out and did what they had to do. They dominated. They executed and they just came out on top.”
4-star ATH Jammie Robinson (2019)
Lee County HS/Leesburg, Ga.
Nation’s No. 28 ATH/ No. 337 overall
“It was a great game. … I thought [the Bulldogs] looked awesome. Especially on defense.” — 4-star ATH Jammie Robinson (undecided)
4-star TE Ryland Goede (2019 UGA commit)
Kennesaw Mountain HS/Kennesaw, Ga.
Nation’s No. 5 TE/ No. 169 overall
“Good to see the explosiveness on both sides of the ball. We are finally putting away teams that we should and its fun to watch for sure.” — 4-star UGA commit Ryland Goede
4-star S Lewis Cine (2019)
Trinity Christian/Cedar Hill, Texas
Nation’s No. 3 safety / No. 50 overall
“I think Georgia has a lot of talent and they are going to keep adding to that. A dominant performance on both offense and defense. They are really showing they are a championship contender.”
4-star DE Jacolbe Cowan (2020)
Providence Day School/Charlotte, NC
Nation’s No. 6 strong-side DE / No. 56 overall
“It was a very impressive win for Georgia against a very talented USC team. A game like that doesn’t really have any impression on me at all because at the end of the day I won’t be choosing a school simply based off a win. I still think highly of both football programs.”
“Both teams had very similar schemes. Being that they are SEC teams they primarily ran the 3-4 and sometimes went to a 4-3 on third down. I loved how aggressive each defense was and I thought both defenses played well.”
4-star DT Jamil Burroughs (2020 UGA commit)
McEachern High School/Powder Springs, Ga.
Nation’s No. 4 DT / No.61 overall
“They played to a high standard and they worked well together as a TEAM and Got the W.”
4-star DT Alex Huntley (2020)
The Hammond School/Columbia, S.C.
Nation’s No. 17 DT / No. 210 overall
“I think the Georgia defense looked great. Their run defense controlled the game. Watching them, you couldn’t tell that they lost a few guys last year. I think they only allowed 50 (rushing) yards.”
4-star WR Rico Powers Jr. (2020)
Nation’s No. 28 WR / No. 181 overall
“It was a good game but then UGA took off.”
