WATCH: Mother of priority UGA target Rick Sandidge breaks down in-home visit
This is a new media world we live in.
It is unique when the reporter tribe or any fan can simply go to a social media feed and get a recap of the big in-home visit from the previous day, but that’s the case with Georgia’s last in-home visit with 4-star defensive tackle target Rick Sandidge.
Kirby Smart was there for his one in-home visit with Sandidge. Jonas Jennings and Tray Scott, two of the biggest reasons why UGA is in the running for Sandidge, also returned to the prospect’s home in North Carolina.
Keshia Sandidge, his mother, served the UGA staff a barbecue dinner Wednesday night, and later shared her thoughts on social media regarding the visit. The South Carolina alum did so while wearing a UGA sweatshirt and getting breakfast ready for her family.
Instant feedback on in-home visits. That is a 2018 thing. Georgia, North Carolina and South Carolina are his three finalists.
The Gamecocks got Sandidge’s final official visit last weekend and will return to North Carolina for their final in-home visit on Saturday.
In the video, Keshia Sandidge commonly calls her son Junior, which is his nickname because he shares his father’s name.
The highlights from the 5-minute session with Keshia Sandidge:
- She said not to read too much into the UGA sweatshirt choice.
- She initially described the visit as “interesting” but said she wanted to be a little more descriptive than that. She even called herself out for saying “interesting” too much at times while describing these visits.
- On the UGA push: “Boy, I am telling you they are making it hard for Junior to make a decision,” she said. “That’s all I can say. Boy, boy, boy.”
- Contracts of coaches were discussed. She said that also will be a topic of conversation for the South Carolina staff when it makes its in-home visits on Saturday.
- The Georgia staff made it clear that Rick Sandidge will have the chance to come in and play as a freshman ― not just fill out the 4-star roll call on the depth chart and wait his turn.
- The family dog needs a bath.
- Her daughter, Brittany, drew a picture of a Bulldog.
Keshia Sandidge also shared a live feed of the in-home visit from Wednesday night, too. The UGA staff was there, and they took a tour of his room, among other moments.
