Reading my brain on Tindall
We are going to rotate so much so often that it could end up being a guy that we would not anoint as our best pass rusher.
But I would take Anderson or Cox. Probably in that order.
Idk how I keep forgetting about Cox. I like the idea of him sliding in that Led/Herring spot on passing downs with Anderson/Johnson/Azeez/Nolan off the edges. The pass rush better be the best of the Kirby era. No doubt about that
For as much shit as we heard about Cox I was not all that impressed. He didn't flash near as much as Anderson imo
Which is weird since he played immediately and Anderson didn’t. I think more was asked of Cox, tbh. Anderson didn’t have to play the run at all.
I think Cox is going to play a ton, which means he will have more sack opportunities. Primary reason I listed him.
But yea I am still high on him too. Interested to see if he adds weight and plays more DL.
Yep. Anderson was situational. Cox was so close to a ton of sacks and tfl. Think he gets a lot more consistent this yr
I thought Cox looked really good at the end of the year. He was starting to get it.
Excited to see how Cox progresses physically. He's a guy I expect to look like a monster by the time he leaves.
Really expecting Cox or Anderson to be the next superstar top 20 type pick for us.
If Johnson is actually the man-child he's purported to be, we are going to be fucking filthy on defense this year. Hell, we'll be filthy if he's not.
I'm pretty excited about Azeez's potential after watching him a little more closely in that Texas game.
Need to go back and watch him.
Divaad was nice from that game too.
this is awesome
Wish he’d come be our OC if Coley doesn’t work out
Rising Georgia star Jordan Davis expected to be cleared for spring drills
Mike GriffithFebruary 26, 2019
ATHENS — Georgia football Freshman All-American nose tackle Jordan Davis is expected to be cleared for spring drills after missing the Sugar Bowl.
Davis, a 6-foot-6, 325-pounder from Charlotte, N.C., is expected to have a major impact as a sophomore. Davis emerged halfway through last season, finishing with 25 tackles, 3 QB hurries and 1.5 sacks.

Davis missed the Sugar Bowl after suffering an injury while performing squats in a weightlifting session following the SEC Championship Game. Georgia held Davis out against Texas as a precaution.
Georgia has yet to officially announce the start of spring football drills, but the date is tentatively expected to be March 18.
The Bulldogs were missing three key defensive players in the 28-21 upset loss to the Longhorns. Thorpe Award winner Deandre Baker opted to sit out to avoid risking injury and protect his projected first-round NFL draft stock. UGA sacks leader D’Andre Walker was also out with a groin injury.

The Georgia defensive front was one of the bigger questions entering the 2018 campaign, but the defensive line progressed as the season wore on.
Davis had much to do with that.
“Jordan’s development has been a big bonus for us,” Smart said last October. “He may be one of our best conditioned players now because he spends all of his time conditioning.”
The Bulldogs lose departing senior Ledbetter, but rising seniors Julian Rochester (6-5, 300) and Tyler Clark (6-4, 300) return to anchor what figures to be a strong unit.
ESPN analyst Cole Cubelic took note of Davis’ growth last season.
“He’s big enough to anchor and play the run,” Cubelic said. “And yet, he has the athletic ability to be able to move and be disruptive.”
MSU or Vandy or somebody needs to hire Kiffin ASAP. We need him back in the SEC.
And speaking of trolling, pretty funny to see Spurrier shit talk South Carolina:
“I tell you the football gods have been smiling on me the last two (AAF) weeks,” Spurrier said about the Apollos being fortunate to be 3-0. “I think all the crap I had at South Carolina those last two years, they’re coming back. They’re smiling on me a little bit.”
What an empty article. According to who, based on what? Davis is key for this year and I get very nervous when it's a back injury.
Body of the article doesn’t even mention the headline. Ha.
I feel like the Jeremy Pruitt story will end similarly one day
We have edge guys to burn all of a sudden. So long and twitchy out there. It's amazing how Kirby take a position of relative weakness and turns it into a strength seemingly overnight. A couple of months ago I was worried we had no receivers. Now I think we have a damn stable-full.
Was hoping we might be able to ruin Auburn's season this evening, but Hammonds is out and in a boot. Balls.
Auburn creates the most TOs in the conference.
We might approach 30 tonight.
Glad we are fighting
Again, guys are playing hard for Crean
I think we will be much better next season. Although that’s not going to be hard to do.
We suck bawls, but we set a season attendance record tonight.
The shitty fucking passing We kill all momentum like it’s our job.
Feel like Auburn has so many really talented players.
this Auburn team is about the worst coached team I have seen us play all year.
Weren’t they supposed to be really good coming into this season? I know they’re missing Wiley and the other kid, but still.
Lanning works with the OLBs, so I’d bet that he brings the heat from the edge more than delayed blitzes with the ILBs. I like the order of your Top 4.
So yea what a total shit final possession.
What's left for Georgia, Tom Crean on 2019 recruiting trail?

Georgia’s 2019 basketball recruiting class saw a big jump a couple of weeks ago when one of the nation’s top prospects, Anthony Edwards, announced his commitment to Tom Crean and the Bulldogs. With two players already signed, Toumani Camara and Jaykwon Walton, and Edwards committed, Crean’s class currently sits at No. 12. Crean was known for his recruiting ability at his previous stops as he brought in back to back top-10 classes at Indiana in 2012 and 2013, and his excitement about the future of Georgia basketball makes fans believe it will be the same way in Athens.
“Obviously Georgia would like to build around Anthony [Edwards] and I think Anthony opting to stay home and go there could certainly impact some of these other decisions,” Evan Daniels, the Director of Basketball Recruiting for 247Sports said. “Maybe not directly, but, these kids want to team up and play together and play with other really good players, so when a guy the caliber of Anthony decides to go to Georgia, I think it probably opens those other guys’ eyes up a little.”
“Look, Tom’s got a really good recruiting class,” he continued. “It’s not just Anthony. Camara and Jaykwon Walton are both really good players, so those three guys are going to provide a good punch to the program, and I think you are only helping with the other recruits, because they know they are going in with other really good players.”
Even with the high standing of the class currently, there is potential to move up with several players still on the board for Georgia. We had a chance to speak with Daniels this week about those chances.
Precious Achiuwa (Montverde Academy, NY)
Small Forward, 6-foot-9, 190 pounds
247Sports Composite: No. 13 overall, No. 4 small forward, No. 3 in New York
Evan Daniels Says: “Precious is the highest ranked of the guys that they’re going after. He’s got elite physical tools. Size, length, athleticism, mobility. It’s a guy that can impact the game with his rebounding using that athleticism around the basket. He’s got significant upside. I think he is going to be able to guard multiple positions at the college level too.”
Achiuwa took an official visit to Kansas earlier this week and has one scheduled to North Carolina on March 9. UConn is listed as the favorite to land the five star according to the Crystal Ball projections, but Daniels believes that there is a chance that Georgia could get in the mix and potentially get an official visit as well. However, his decision likely won’t come until after playing in the McDonald’s All American Game in Atlanta. If the Bulldogs are able to sign him, he would be the program’s third highest ranked signee ever behind Edwards and 2005 signee Louis Williams.
Lester Quinones (IMG Academy, FL)
Shooting Guard, 6-foot-5, 180 pounds
247Sports Composite: No. 65 overall, No. 9 shooting guard, No. 11 in Florida
Evan Daniels Says: “Lester Quinones is one of the best shooters in the country. He’s got good size for the position. I think he’s really improved as a ball handler, and operates pretty well out of the pick and roll. But shooting is where he brings the most value.”
Having just cut his list down to seven, Quinones is working to get some more official visits scheduled. He saw LSU and Maryland in November and December respectively, but the other five schools in his final listing would like to have him to campus too. Georgia is one of those, along with Memphis, Indiana, Michigan, and Ohio State.
Harlond Beverly (Montverde Academy, FL)
Combo Guard, 6-foot-4, 170 pounds
247Sports Composite: No. 82 overall, No. 11 combo guard, No. 12 in Florida
Evan Daniels Says: “He’s a combo guard, but I think he’s developing into a primary ball handler. He’s got good size for the position. He’s a scorer. Shoots the ball pretty well from distance, and he’s a guy that I think has a lot of potential as a defender because I think he could guard multiple positions.”
Beverly could be the solution to Georgia’s lack of a true point guard. He has not taken any official visits during his recruiting process so far. While Michigan State holds all of the Crystal Ball projections currently, Georgia is still in the mix along with the likes of Baylor and Indiana.
Walker Kessler (Woodward Academy, GA)
Center, 6-foot-10, 225 pounds
247Sports Composite: No. 16 overall, No. 3 center, No. 2 in Georgia
Evan Daniels Says: “Walker Kessler is one of the best post players in the 2020 class. For his size, he moves extremely well. He’s got a terrific set of hands. Really nice touch around the basket. Can get to a hook shot with the ability to make those short to mid-range jump shots. He’s a good area rebounder, so I’ve been really impressed with his skill, but also his mobility and his ability to rebound.”
An idea is floating around that Kessler may reclassify from the 2020 class to the 2019 class, something that Anthony Edwards did back in November before visiting Georgia for the first time in December. Several members of Kessler’s family played basketball at Georgia and he was one of the first recruits that Tom Crean reached out to when he got the job, so if he were to decide to reclassify, the Bulldogs would certainly get a hard look.
Another prospect that I spoke with Daniels about was JUCO point guard Tyson Jolly. The 6-foot-4 Oklahoma City native initially signed his National Letter of Intent with California, but was released after a coaching change. He then went to Baylor as a redshirt freshman before ending up at Trinity Valley Community College in Texas. Wherever Jolly ends up next, he will have two years of eligibility left.
The initial day for the spring signing period is April 17 with the time to sign ending on May 15. With the pieces already in place, Tom Crean will finish out with a great class regardless of whether or not he is able to add to it.
I know it's odd to say with the names that are on that list but I really want the IMG kid the most. I was at CofC when Anthony Johnson was there, it's so much fun having a tall PG.
“One of the best shooters in the country” in Crean’s system? Yes please.
I'm not sure Quinones can play PG. He's more of a traditional shooting guard. While not as highly ranked as some of the others, I think Beverly is the most important recruit on the list. He would be our starting PG next year.
On one of the boards yesterday, someone was saying we are also going after JUCO combo guard Tyson Jolly to play PG. His film is pretty filthy. He went to Baylor out of HS as a top 100 player, then transferred to JUCO and was JUCO player of the year. I'm not sure of the circumstances surrounding his transfer. Maybe he just realized Waco sucked donkey balls and Baylor is a shit-tier institution. If we land Jolly, then then I would jump Quinones and Precious to the top of my wish list. Of those two, I would prefer Quinones. We have a lot of length and relatively decent depth at the forward positions. We need shooters.
Shit, that's who I meant. 6'4" PG? Yup I'll have that please.
So we should know our full class by May 15, as that's the end of the regular basketball signing period.
Carson Beck should be visiting y'all this weekend fyi
Should be? Or he is?
