It’s been a busy three days at the University of Georgia for Kirby Smart, his coaching staff and the Bulldogs as they wrapped up their first football camp of the summer on Saturday.
The Kirby Smart High School Football Camp kicked off on Thursday, June 1st and Georgia hosted a slew of 2018, 2019, 2020 and 2021 prospective student-athletes over the weekend. The camp gives recruits the opportunity to visit UGA and to learn from as well as work out in front of the Bulldogs’ staff. And it was a very good camp for both the recruits and for Georgia.
The Bulldogs picked up two commitments on day two of the camp on Friday from North Gwinnett High School 2018 offensive lineman Warren Ericson and Miami-Northwestern 2018 defensive back Rachad Wildgoose, Jr., CLICK HERE for the story on the commitments of Ericson and Wildgoose. And a number of prospects received offers from Georgia.
Two 2020 defensive ends earned offers on Friday. Sergio Allen, a WDE/OLB prospect out of Peach County High School from Fort Valley, GA along with Andy Boykin, a SDE prospect out of Troup County High School in LaGrange, GA both performed very well and impressed the staff.

A couple of players turned heads at the camp with their performances including 2020 athlete Zay Britt out of Munford, AL who ran a 4.44 forty, but Effingham County High School 2018 RB Lamonee Toot Johnson really showed off, throwing down a 4.41 forty and looking like he had already been in Georgia’s strength and conditioning program for the past year.
