DN90: UGA commits produce must-see highlights in season openers

5-star RB Kendal Milton was one of a few UGA commits to produce an exciting highlight in their season debuts over the weekend.

Georgia football fans can get a quick update on the latest news involving the Bulldogs each day with DN90. DawgNation’s Brandon Adams provides all the latest UGA happenings on video in about 90 seconds. So follow along as Kirby Smart, Jake Fromm and the rest of the Bulldogs attempt to lead UGA to a national championship, and get up-to-the-minute UGA recruiting news as well. On this edition of DN90, BA discusses some impressive season-opening highlights from two of the Bulldogs’ 2020 commits — 4-star wide receiver Marcus Rosemy and 5-star running back Kendall Milton.

Georgia fans are paying lots of attention to how the Bulldogs might close out the 2020 recruiting class. There’s excitement surrounding the possibility 5-star running back Zachary Evans, 5-star defensive lineman Jordan Burch or a number of other elite recruits could soon — or eventually — give their pledge to UGA.

However, while attention is paid to who could be next, it’s also probably a good idea to take a moment to appreciate who’s already in the fold.

This weekend provided an opportunity for  that.

A few Bulldogs’ commits began their senior seasons this past weekend, and a couple — including 4-star wide receiver Marcus Rosemy and 5-star running back Kendall Milton — provided some exciting highlights.

Rosemy hauled in a one-handed catch reminiscent of something that could be seen on an NFL Sunday — a play that probably shouldn’t come as a surprise for the nation’s No. 5 receiver, and the country’s No. 40 prospect overall. He’s used those kinds of athletic displays to make a name for himself for quite some time now.

However, Rosemy’s success also offers a bold statement about how the Bulldogs are establishing themselves as a destination for wide receiver recruits.

UGA went ten years (2009-2019) without signing a receiver ranked among the nation’s top-100 players. Yet it added two such recruits last year — 5-star George Pickens (the country’s No. 24 player for 2019) and 4-star Dominick Blaylock (No. 36).

Rosemy’s ascension the year after landing Pickens and Blaylock indicates the Bulldogs plan to be a major player on the recruiting scene for receivers — much the same way it has for many other position groups since Kirby Smart was hired as UGA coach in 2016.

Of course, UGA has been a destination for running backs for as long as anyone can remember, and Milton could be the next great one for the Bulldogs. He showed off some impressive moves Saturday night in a game observed by a national audience.

Milton is not only an exciting player, he’s seemingly one of the leaders of UGA’s 2020 class as well. He’s been an outspoken proponent of having Evans — and many other top prospects — join him in Athens.

Undoubtedly, a few could be swayed by his sales pitch after seeing more of him in action.
