4-star DT Nazir Stackhouse has been committed to Georgia longer than any other prospect in this class. He chose UGA on the day Georgia won its first SEC title since 2005 back during that special 2017 season. (Jeff Sentell/DawgNation)
4-star OT Tate Ratledge is the highest-rated UGA commitment currently at The Opening this week. (Jeff Sentell/DawgNation)

The major UGA targets at The Opening

The RB targets

Kendall Milton was very impressive on the first day of The Opening on Monday at The Ford Center at The Star in Texas. (Jeff Sentell/DawgNation)
Kendall Milton ranks as the nation’s No. 2 RB prospect for the 2020 cycle. (Jeff Sentell/DawgNation)
DawgNation has been hearing a lot of buzz regarding 4-star Tank Bigsby as a potential member of this class. (Jeff Sentell/DawgNation)
5-star Miami commit Don Chaney Jr. has been mentioned a lot as a possible flip on the DawgNation forums. (Jeff Sentell/DawgNation)
Kendall Milton cut his list down to four schools. A decision is expected this month. (Jeff Sentell/DawgNation)

The big TE targets

5-star ATH Arik Gilbert was laughing a lot at The Opening on Monday in Texas. (Jeff Sentell/DawgNation)
5-star ATH Darnell Washington is a specimen to see in person. He’s actually a pretty efficient and smooth route runner, too. (Jeff Sentell/DawgNation)
Theo Johnson is down to four schools: Georgia, Iowa, Michigan and Penn State. He should decide either this month or before his senior season. He’s a rare Canadian target by the program. (Jeff Sentell/DawgNation)
Expect Darnell Washington to take his recruiting process and his final decision up to the Under Armour All-American Game. He will take his UGA official for the Notre Dame game this fall. (Jeff Sentell/DawgNation)
Theo Johnson is a rare athlete. He has posted that he has a 10-foot broad jump and a 43-inch vertical leap. (Jeff Sentell/DawgNation)

The Noah Sewell section

Noah Sewell posted a 4.75 laser in the 40-yard dash at 266 pounds. (Jeff Sentell/DawgNation)
Sewell has rare short space quickness for an ILB. He was timed in the pro agility shuttle drill at 4.13 seconds. That is the 99th percentile for all athletes. Especially the skill RBs and WRs. (Jeff Sentell/DawgNation)
Noah Sewell plays and camps with a high level of emotion and intensity. (Jeff Sentell/DawgNation)
Here’s pretty much the reaction when anyone sees Sewell fly around on the field at close to 270 pounds. (Jeff Sentell/DawgNation)
Noah Sewell had a brilliant day in the “Cat-and-Mouse” drill during the showcase portion of the Opening on Monday. (Jeff Sentell/DawgNation)
