It seems like Noah Sewell has something in common with a lot of Georgia fans this fall.
The nation’s No. 2 ILB prospect and his family wants to be in Sanford Stadium on Sept. 21 when Georgia takes on Notre Dame under the lights. That 8 p.m. kickoff will allow plenty of time for Sewell and his family to make the trek from Utah to check out the Bulldogs.
It will be an important official visit. Gabriel Sewell, Sr. told DawgNation earlier this month that the Bulldogs (along with Oregon and Texas A&M) had already done enough to earn an official visit.
The upcoming trip for the Notre Dame game now establishes the date. Sewell Sr. also told DawgNation that they have only planned the exact date for one other official visit at this time. That will be a trip to College Station on Oct. 12 to see Texas A&M host Alabama.
The visit further verifies a big trend for the fall schedule. That Notre Dame game is already trending to be perhaps the biggest visit weekend for recruiting in the Kirby Smart era.
That’s saying quite a lot. 5-star RB Kendall Milton, the most recent commit, is already planning to return to Athens for that game even though it will be an unofficial visit.
Noah Sewell is a name to watch for 2020
Milton’s commitment means that Sewell’s name will rise another spot inside the top 5 among the top remaining targets for the 2020 class.
He took an unofficial visit earlier this summer and got the chance to learn a great deal about UGA.
“I really like it,” Noah Sewell told DawgNation out at the Opening. “It is really a brotherhood in the linebacker room. They are all really comfortable with each other. Every activity they do they bring everybody. Even the walk-ons.”
The 6-foot-2, 266-pounder earned his fifth star on the 247Sports Composite rankings after his dominant work in space at The Opening finals earlier this month in Texas.
Sewell has elite athleticism and agility for any position on the field. That most certainly includes the ILB spot.
It also appears Sewell does have Georgia on his mind, too. When he jumped on 5-star CB target Kelee Ringo’s Instagram feed from the recruiting event this weekend, he dropped a line on Ringo’s feed to make sure to tell Georgia co-defensive coordinators, Dan Lanning and Glenn Schumann, that he said hello.
The Utah resident will also rank as the nation’s No. 23 overall prospect for the 2020 cycle. That top eight looks like Alabama, Florida, Georgia, LSU, Ohio State, Oregon, Tennessee and Texas A&M at this time.
The athletic resume for Sewell essentially speaks for itself:
- 4.75: Laser time in the 40-yard dash
- 4.13: Pro agility 5-10-5 shuttle drill
- 35.6 inches: Vertical jump
- 47.5 feet: Power ball toss
- 132.39: Opening combine rating
