Brandon Adams

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 DawgNation experts as they break down the latest Georgia football recruiting news and discuss coach Kirby Smart’s quest to return the Bulldogs to the top of the SEC. On episode No. 1,220 (June 19, 2020) of the podcast, Georgia fans can hear a discussion about a seemingly clear message from UGA that it’s in pursuit of the nation’s No. 1 recruit, five-star defensive lineman Korey Foreman.

Georgia football podcast: UGA makes intentions clear with nation’s No. 1 recruit

Beginning of the show: Georgia linebacker commit Chaz Chambliss shared an edit on social media that seemed to reveal a lot about the Bulldogs’ recruiting priorities. One of the names that appeared on the image was five-star defensive lineman — and the nation’s No. 1 recruit — Korey Foreman.

Foreman has been speculated to be a target for UGA since he de-committed from Clemson in April, and the message shared by Chambliss on Twitter seems to confirm it. I’ll discuss more about where things stand between UGA and Foreman on today’s show.

Five-minute mark: I discuss five-star safety James Williams — who released a “top two” on Thursday night.

10-minute mark: I discuss the attention UGA safety Richard LeCounte has earned from some NFL draft scouts.

15-minute mark: DawgNation recruiting insider Jeff Sentell joins the show. Some of the topics covered include…

  • Williams’ list of finalists
  • Thoughts on UGA’s relationship with Foreman
  • An update on five-star cornerback Tony Grimes
  • The latest on five-star offensive tackle Amarius Mims
  • A preview of five-star linebacker Smael Mondon’s eventual decision
  • And reaction to four-star linebacker Xavian Sorey’s decision to transfer to IMG Academy

40-minute mark: I take a look at other SEC headlines including Florida’s decision to end one of its popular traditions, the Gators getting a commitment from a former LSU pledge and Alabama seemingly copying UGA’s non-conference scheduling philosophy.

45-minute mark: I make a comparison between UGA and Oregon — two national contenders that are seeking offensive change.

End of show: I share the Gator Hater Updater.
