Want to attack every day with the latest UGA football recruiting info? That’s what the Intel brings. This entry sheds light on that new #Boss22moves hashtag for Georgia football recruiting across social media.
That’s the word that Marquis Groves-Killebrew used on Monday to describe what the annual rite of passage for junior football players every time Sept. 1 rolls around on the calendar.
For those that cover the recruiting industry, the occasion still feels like Bill Murray in “Groundhog Day” on the silver screen. The dateline, even in the age of a pandemic, still feels very much the same.
It is the real estate on the calendar where NCAA rules allow college programs to directly contact their top juniors on the board. That is the first time that is allowed per NCAA rules.
It usually comes in the form of edits sent via text messages and direct messages.

Groves-Killebrew remains the anchor commitment for Georgia in the 2022 cycle.
What was he doing at 12 o’clock when his phone started popping off with serious battery bleed because of all those notifications?
“MGK” was sleeping. The many texts and “DM” notifications he was receiving woke him up.
That seems like a safe sign that the splendid cornerback pledge for the Georgia 2022 class is quite content with where he sits with his future college home.
It holds true even though he received approximately 20 messages from major college programs, including UGA.
“I haven’t even opened all of them,” Groves-Killebrew told DawgNation.
Georgia’s message came with the debut of its #Bo22Moves hashtag that is starting to pop over social media. That’s the hashtag Georgia’s targets, its coaches and recruiting staffers annually use to spread the recruiting message across social platforms.
It follows in the spirit of previous UGA recruiting hashtags like #Sicem17 and #NewBreed18 the Bulldogs have used in the past.
