Georgia football is the No. 1 topic every day on DawgNation Daily — the daily podcast for Georgia Bulldogs fans. Catch up on everything happening with UGA athletics with host Brandon Adams and the cast of DawgNation experts as they discuss UGA coach Kirby Smart’s quest to return the Bulldogs to the top of the SEC, and break down the latest Georgia football recruiting news. On episode No. 449 (May 18, 2017) of the podcast, Georgia Bulldogs fans can hear a discussion about what an ESPN writer had to say about UGA incoming freshman offensive tackle Isaiah Wilson.

Georgia football podcast: ESPN offers praise, reason for concern for Isaiah Wilson

Beginning of the show: ESPN has tabbed UGA freshman Isaiah Wilson as a newcomer to watch for the Bulldogs this summer, but the writer of the piece — Edward Aschoff — also shares why Georgia fans might should be concerned about Wilson’s conditioning. However on today’s show, I talk about why Wilson might not be the freshman offensive tackle most likely to earn early playing time this season.

11 minute mark: SEC Country analyst Mike Johnson joins the show. Some of the topics covered include…

  • Whether it’s easier for an offensive lineman to add or drop weight
  • An evaluation of Georgia quarterback Jacob Eason
  • The outlook for UGA running back Nick Chubb
  • An opinion on the strength of UGA’s schedule
  • The impact of former Alabama offensive coordinator Lane Kiffin’s coments on Alabama’s quarterback situation
  • Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze’s attempt to duck reporters questions about the ongoing NCAA investigation

26 minute mark: I take a look at some of the other headlines from around the SEC including Alabama coach Nick Saban’s comments to CBS about his quarterbacks, the reaction of UGA fans to being mentioned as a finalist for 2018 running back Master Teague, a controversial rule that will force a Florida State defensive back to miss the first half of the season opener vs. the Crimson Tide, and the growing belief from many that Tennessee has found its quarterback.

End of show: I talk about the former UGA basketball assistant who might already be making a recruiting impact for his new employer — Alabama.
