Stephiylan Green DL 4*

Is he flirting with UGA or not? Just curious if people are stirring the pot or he is seriously talking to them.

This is what I saw reported elsewhere:
On3 recruiting analyst Chad Simmons says the chances are "pretty high" that Green will make a visit to Georgia's campus this season for a game.

Went onto to say interest is mutual between Green and Georgia, so I guess if true then expect a decommitment soon.

Since Williams pulled the trigger to UgA wondering who or if we are considering for the 3rd WR spot?

Anyone heard anything?

It has been known for a while that we were out of it for Williams.

Word was that we were only planning on taking 2 WR in this class which we currently have in place.

I am not sure if that mindset has changed with the Dacari Collins transfer.

There are no currently offered guys in play. The only prospect I have even seen mentioned is a slot guy out of NC with no power-5 offers, and that was back in July:

Will be interesting to see if any fast rising players jump onto our radar.

It certainly can be true and possible. But Chad is a huge UGA homer so I usually do not put much credence in what he claims. UGA is going to take some from us and we will take some from them. But currently they certainly have the momentum to take more than we do from them.

Isn't he one of those Old Scout guys before the 247 buyout ?

GT commit Zion Taylor is a name worth knowing. We'll see if GC getting fired has any affect on him.

A quick recap on the latest comings & goings:

RB

At the time of the last update, we had just offered Jamarion Wilcox a talented but undersized back out of Georgia. He covets a UGA offer but since they have yet to pull the trigger, the perceived competition for us is Kentucky. He unofficially visited Clemson back in September for the LA Tech game but I have not heard any confirmation on him setting up an official visit.

Where the coaches feel like they stand with him could have had some bearing on the new RB offer that went out this weekend to unranked Jamarius Haynes out of Alabama. He flashes talent on his highlight tapes but he has no other P5 offers. We'll see where this recruitment goes and if Haynes is just a late bloomer that we got on early.

WR

Misun Kelley is an athlete out of Daniel HS who recently decommitted from Virginia Tech and promptly received a Clemson offer. While he also plays defensive back, word is that we are recruiting him as a receiver. He visited unofficially this weekend for Syracuse. All signs point to us being in a good position here.

OL

On the offensive line, things got a bit interesting with Zechariah Owens and Florida State. I don't need to rehash all the drama here but the main takeaway was that he did not end up enjoying his time in Tallahassee and Dabo allowed him to recommit soon after.

In terms of other options, we extended an offer to Zechariah's high school teammate, DJ Chester, before all the drama went down. Also, immediately following Zechariah's decommitment, we extended an offer to Utah prospect Spencer Fano. I will be curious to see if we continue to pursue either. You can never have enough quality bigguns in the trenches.

DL

DE Tomarrion Parker still has Clemson very high on his list. He made his official visit for the Syracuse game this weekend and word was he had a great time. Tennessee is still the main contender here. He is set to announce his decision on Nov 21.

DT Kayden McDonald was on an unofficial visit this weekend as well. As mentioned during the last update, Ohio State has made up a lot of ground in this recruitment to the point that some consider them the leader. Clemson did what they needed to impress the talented Georgia defensive lineman but will it be enough? Interestingly, Kayden is scheduled to announce his commitment on Oct 31 but has his official visit set up with us for the SCAR game. Let's hope it is a sign of things to come. Florida is also in the mix.

DB

Khalil Barnes is a talented defensive back out of Georgia that recently decommitted from Wake Forest and received a Clemson offer soon after. He visited unofficially this weekend for Syracuse. He has his official visit set up for the SCAR game. We feel like we are in a strong place with his recruitment.

Thanks Blood, great stuff as always!

I noticed Tyler Brown, a WR from Greenville HS unofficially visited last weekend. He thinks we may offer. Will be interesting to watch.

The recruiting sites do their best to keep up with that but it is an inexact science and usually not fully confirmed until ESD. I don’t keep track of it on my list.

Any interest in Rico Walker? He decommitted from the holes recently. Listed as a DE

Are we still looking promising for Tomarrion Parker?

Any idea if there is still much interaction with Spencer Fano?

It's currently looking like Jamarius Haynes could be out take at RB.

No offense to Spiller but it would be a homerun hire to lure Stump Mitchell from the Browns. He's from SC so maybe he would want to come home? I believe he's in his mid 60s. Let CJ recruit and Mitchell do his thing as the RB whisperer. One can dream...

Is Rico Walker related to Uncle Rico?

It seems odd (at least to me) that you want CJ to recruit and Stump to coach given CJ has sucked at recruiting and done a nice job coaching.
