WATCH: New UGA commit Carlton Madden Jr. breaks down his decision with DawgNation

Want to attack every day with the latest Georgia football recruiting info? That’s what the Intel brings. This entry shares a video interview that DawgNation conducted this week with Carlton Madden Jr. on his public commitment to the University of Georgia.

Dreams. We’ve all got them.

Carlton Madden Jr. woke up this morning to a dream realized in his 17-year-old life.

The now 6-foot-3.5, 235-pound senior at Cedar Grove High School is now a Georgia commit. Madden’s story stands unique amidst the constellation of recruits so far that have chosen to play for the Bulldogs in the Kirby Smart era.

Madden didn’t have an offer from Georgia a year ago. He only played one junior varsity game at all due to Georgia High School Association transfer rules during his junior year.

The 3-star commitment also only weighed about 205 pounds a year ago but used a regimen of push-ups and peanut butter and jelly sandwiches to add on 30 approximate pounds of good weight to transform his athletic frame into an SEC prospect.

That is a string of highly uncommon occurrences for any recruit that eventually winds up committed to UGA.

Madden then had to work for an offer that would eventually come from Kirby Smart and Georgia defensive coordinator Dan Lanning during a summer camp.

It is a remarkable story and Georgia’s latest commitment shared it with DawgNation this week in the latest DawgNation conversation.
