That. Escalated. Quickly. For. Georgia football recruiting.
That classic Ron Burgundy line from “Anchorman” will also apply here as the events of the last week and the next month to come have produced a pretty clear tell that the major moving pieces for the 2021 recruiting board are set to fall in place for Georgia.
Or they will not.
That’s because big 5-star OT Amarius Mims might have been the 6-foot-8-sized spark of inertia needed. The last 24-36 hours have produced a flurry of activity. The quick hit cycle of news events regarding decisions and potential timelines was the focus on the weekly DawgNation “Before the Hedges” program on Wednesday night on the DawgNation social platforms.
Smael Mondon Jr., the 5-star LB from Paulding County High School in Northwest Georgia, dropped a tweet that once again covered his final five schools (which was known) but also added a specific commitment day of November 18.
Mondon remains a major target for UGA at ILB in the 2021 class.
