Given that it is still recruiting season, the question that I get asked the most is how many spots does Georgia have in the Class of 2020. Below is my thought process as of today. Clearly, a lot can change depending on early entry to the NFL Draft. Players with the (NFL) designation are possible early draft entrants if they have an excellent season in 2019. Also, just for fun, I included a WAY WAY WAY too early Mock Class.

Matthew “Huck” Pasek was born into a family of Georgia Bulldogs. Huck’s father, Gary, graduated from UGA in 1976 and became a high school chemistry teacher at Peachtree HS in Dunwoody, GA where he coached alongside Georgia High School football legend T. McFerrrin. Gary’s love of football, especially Georgia football, was passed along to his son. Huck lives in Belmont, NC with his wife, Whitney, and works in Financial Services Litigation. In his spare time he is an avid golfer, movie fanatic and habitual traveler to St. Simons Island with his wife “just to get away”. The moniker ImYourHuckleberry arose from his favorite movie, Tombstone, and character Doc Holiday’s famous line, “I’m Your Huckleberry”. Matthew was never one to shy away from a confrontation or debate, thus the nickname instantly stuck.
