Who is now the best recruiter on the Georgia football coaching staff?
Brandon Adams: Matt Luke
The “why” from “DawgNation Daily” here: “The results currently speak for themselves. Luke stepped into a tough spot replacing Sam Pittman last cycle but produced a monstrous haul. He’s also got UGA in position for big names in 2021 as well.”
Mike Griffith: Kirby Smart
The “why” from “On the Beat” here: “Smart is the ultimate closer because of his energy, charisma and authenticity. No one can sell Georgia football better than someone with a degree from the business school and All-SEC credentials as a former starting safety. Smart has also put several players in the NFL over the course of his career and proven he can win national and SEC championships. In a word: Credibility.“
Connor Riley: Dell McGee
The “why” from “Good Day UGA” here: “There are a number of good answers for this question, but I’ll go with Georgia’s longest-tenured offensive assistant. McGee has done a great job of not just recruiting talent at the running back position but also working as a secondary recruiter on a number of key Atlanta area targets, such as Jamaree Salyer and Broderick Jones.“
Jeff Sentell: Dan Lanning
The Intel here: “This feels like the PGA Tour. My opinion mirrors the World Golf Rankings. Kirby is Tiger. But an asset who will summon his 2019 Masters game with more regularity. Dan Lanning feels like the current answer. Because of numerous stories. What he does as a primary and secondary recruiter on major UGA targets seems tireless. McGee is second based on his track record of major wins. Want an off-the-wall name? Try graduate assistant Nick Williams. He’s been a major influence on big names in every class, including 5-star DE Korey Foreman in the 2021 cycle.
