Kirby Smart took an in-home visit Sunday night to see priority QB commit Jake Fromm

Kirby Smart hit the recruiting trail hard on Sunday.

Kirby Smart was already hitting the recruiting trail hard on Sunday.

The next two weeks should seem similar to the December charge that followed soon after Smart took the Georgia job approximately 51 weeks ago.

The priority at hand will be strategic targets. Those will be important with the dead period looming on Dec. 11. Georgia’s stacked recruiting class — which currently ranks third nationally — has two natural candidates to see as quickly as possible.

Jake Fromm. Richard LeCounte III.

Smart and offensive coordinator Jim Chaney went in-home with Fromm and his family on Sunday evening.

“It was awesome just to see them on a personal level,” Fromm said. “Just to have them in your house and everything was a good experience for me and my family. A lot of the people in our community got to come by and say hello. Man, it was just an awesome night.”

The first-year head coach should work on the December graduates with his in-home visits this week.

Smart went to see one of Georgia’s two most important commits for 2017 — early graduate or not — to begin that push on Sunday.

The not quite 6-foot-3, 220-pound senior flipped from Alabama to Georgia shortly after the Smart hire. The decision allowed Fromm to fulfill a life-long dream of playing for Georgia. Fromm is ranked as the nation’s No. 3 pro-style passer for 2017.

The U.S. Army All-American is rated as the nation’s No. 44 overall prospect and the No. 4 player in Georgia for his class. He finished his prep career at Houston County with 12, 817 career passing yards.

That figure trails only Clemson Heisman Trophy contender DeShaun Watson in Georgia high school football history. Watson finished with 13,077 career passing yards after 56 career games. Fromm accumulated his total in 46 games.

In addition to the Fromm visit, LeCounte tweeted out he was visited by Georgia assistants Glenn Schumann and Mel Tucker on Sunday night.

Fromm said he thought that UGA offensive line coach Sam Pittman also visited three targets on Sunday.  That’s Pace Academy offensive tackle Andrew Thomas and Cedar Grove teammates Netori Johnson and Justin Shaffer.

The Houston County quarterback is set to take his official visit to UGA on Dec. 9.

DawgNation has learned that the Bulldogs also plan a similar in-home visit with 4-star receiver Jeremiah Holloman on Monday night. James Coley will join Smart for that visit.

A source close to the situation also expects UGA to take another in-home visit with 4-star Grayson safety DeAngelo Gibbs on Tuesday night. Gibbs is a huge priority for Georgia. He rates as the state’s top undecided prospect for the Class of 2017.
