Who is going to be in town for G-Day on Saturday?

Georgia football: G-Day is on Saturday and recruits will be in Sanford Stadium

That should stand as one of those say-that-again-for-all-the-folks-in-the-back-of-the-choir-to-hear statements.

There might be more than one 5-star in town, too.

The fact that prospects will have to enter Sanford Stadium as ticketed patrons must also be noted here. There will not be face-to-face gameday access to the Georgia coaching staff either.  This won’t be the prime West End Zone seating near the tunnel where the Bulldogs enter the field, but it will do.

We will also gladly take this step back forward toward what used to be a gameday staple. The present team on the field and the very bright future of the program on hand watching it.

G-Day 2022

CONFIRMED PLANS TO ATTEND

  • COMMIT: 5-star ATH Malaki Starks/Jefferson HS/Jefferson, Ga. (No. 32 overall prospect)
  • COMMIT: 4-star DT “Big Bear” Alexander/Brewer HS/Fort Worth, Tex. (No. 38 overall prospect)
  • COMMIT: 4-star LB Jalon Walker/Salisbury HS/Salisbury, NC (No. 55 overall prospect)
  • COMMIT: 4-star DT Tyre West/Tift County/Tifton, Ga. (No. 66 overall prospect)
  • 4-star DT Christen Miller/Cedar Grove/Ellenwood, Ga. (No. 115 overall prospect)
  • COMMIT: 4-star LB CJ Washington/Cedartown/Cedartown, Ga. (No. 136 overall prospect)
  • COMMIT: 3-star LB Donovan Westmoreland/Griffin HS/Griffin, Ga. (No. 390 overall prospect)
  • COMMIT: 4-star TE Pearce Spurlin III/S. Walton/Santa Rosa Beach, Fla. (No. 59 overall prospect)
  • 4-star WR Raymond Cottrell/Milton HS/Milton, Fla. (No. 69 overall prospect)
  • ILB Zavier Hamilton/Navaree/Gulf Breeze, Fla. (UGA just offered on Thursday)
  • QB Battle Alberson/Gulf Breeze/Gulf Breeze, Fla. 

This list is fluid and DawgNation will update it as more prospects check in with their plans. There should also be a level set here to expect to see at least one two very big names to show up in Sanford Stadium on Saturday.

G-Day: A few other recruiting elements to pay attention to

Walker, the Under Armour All-American with an impressive backstory, will actually be spending the night in Athens this weekend.

In a related story, All-American DT Christen Miller confirmed with DawgNation on Friday morning that he has now scheduled his official visit to UGA for the first week of June. That is a major development worth paying attention to.

It is also worth repeating that these are prospects that are just going to find their way into Sanford Stadium with a game ticket the way any regular fan would. They will not be on the field prior to the game for warmups as per that normal scene we all took so very much for granted over the last few years.

It is interesting how things have changed since the last time recruits were inside Sanford Stadium. Just consider this quote from 4-star WR Raymond Cottrell in the 2023 class.

Why is he making the trip up from The Florida panhandle for G-Day?

“They like to throw the ball,” he said. “Kirby Smart really knows what he is doing. He always puts his team in the right position every time. I just had to see it for myself.”

Are we still talking about Georgia football these days? That was the nation’s No. 12 WR from the state of Florida in 2023 that shared that.

Sapp was just at FSU this past weekend. He recently backed off his decision to make his commitment on his mother’s birthday on May 7.

Glenwood School (Phenix City, Ala.) 5-star CB AJ Harris is the nation’s No. 2 cornerback prospect and the No. 21 overall recruit in the 2023 cycle.

He’s set to be at Auburn for its spring game. He was at the FSU spring game last week, but that should not be interpreted in any way that the Bulldogs are still not a very top school for Harris in 2023.
