Latavious Brini – 2017 CB
40% USF, 30% VT, 10% Miami, 10% Oregon, 10% UGA. Brini is set to announce his decision on Feb. 1st, and just visited UGA on January 20th. He was a Hokie lean but Coach Strong and USF have made a big push here. Watch for Oregon, though. He will take a visit in Eugene on the 28th before NSD.

Markaviest Bryant – 2017 WDE
80% UGA, but Auburn has made a late push here for the “Big Cat;” so, my confidence has dropped from 95% to 80%. I still think UGA is the favorite here. He visited LSU this past weekend and is set to visit Arkansas on the 25th and then Auburn this coming weekend. He will likely announce his decision sometime after his final visit at Auburn.

Nico Collins – 2017 WR
40% Michigan, 40% UGA, 20% Alabama. My confidence that Collins could pick the Bulldogs has gone from 10% up to 40% in just about a month. Michigan was the favorite, but not anymore. Georgia is doing an outstanding job here recruiting the phenomenal wideout. He will wait till Feb. 1st to announce his decision on NSD. Good news is he has scheduled an official visit to UGA this weekend on January 28th; so, this is one to definitely keep your eye on.

Tedarrell Slaton – 2017 OL/DL
70% Florida, 20% UGA, 10% Ole Miss. Slaton took an official visit to Florida this past weekend, and it looks like Georgia will get “TD” to visit this coming weekend on the 27th. The Bulldogs could have a shot at the big man out of American Heritage.

Aubrey Solomon – 2017 DT
Was a Michigan-Georgia battle and now it appears to be an Alabama-Michigan-Georgia battle, but it is anybody’s guess as to where he ends up or when he announces his decision. As expected he did not announce his decision at the US Army All-American game on January 7th, and he originally was going to wait till NSD or possibly afterward. However, that has changed and he is likely to announce before the end of January. His announcement will be carried via ESPN from Lee Co. High School.

Aaron Sterling – 2017 DE
65% South Carolina, 20% Tennessee, 15% Georgia. Has been a big South Carolina lean for a long while, but both Georgia and Tennessee have made inroads in his recruitment here of late. Sterling visited UGA on January 19th and then Tennessee over the weekend. He will visit South Carolina this weekend and likely decide between the Bulldogs, Gamecocks, and Vols. I still think South Carolina is a favorite here.

Ameer Speed – 2017 CB
50% Virginia Tech, 40% UGA, 10% UNC, . He is planning to announce on NSD on Feb. 1st between Georgia, Michigan State, North Carolina, Oregon, and Virgina Tech. Speed visited UGA on January 20th and from all accounts, it went very well. The Bulldogs are looking to land another CB in this class, and although VT is still a strong favorite here, the Georgia coaching staff has given Speed a lot to think about after his visit. My confidence pick here has gone from 15% to 40% for the Dawgs which puts this as a UGA-VT battle.

Eric Stokes Jr. – 2017 CB
95% sure he picks UGA if there is room, but I’m 50/50 on if there is an open spot for him at the moment. He visited UGA on January 20th along with three other cornerbacks; so, it is possible that the coaching staff takes whoever commits first between Brini, Stokes, and Speed or Williams flipping.

Tyler Taylor – 2017 ILB
30% UGA, 30% Oklahoma, 30% Auburn, 10% LSU. He could announce anytime between now and NSD. At one time, Taylor was favored to Georgia, but he is likely an odd man out due to who the Bulldogs have committed and who they are focusing on to close out the class with.

Leonard Warner – 2017 ILB
95% UGA. He could wait till NSD to announce his decision, but I don’t think he will. However, the longer he waits, the less likely there will be a spot for him at Georgia as numbers are getting tighter and tighter the closer we get to NSD. If he doesn’t commit to UGA or there are not any spots left, he could look to head out west to Stanford.


Elijah Blades – 2017 CB, committed to Florida. Flip potential to UGA 10%.
Larrell Murchison – 2017 JUCO DT
Murchison is a JUCO DT out of Louisburg College who is currently committed to Ole Miss, but he got an offer from Georgia while visiting Athens over the weekend. Flip potential 50/50.
A.J. Terrell – 2017 CB, committed to Clemson. Flip potential to UGA 35%.
Tamorrion Terry – 2017 WR, Committed to FSU. Question is will he qualify academically. If not, he is likely headed to JUCO or Prep. 0% flip potential.
Jamyest Williams – 2017 CB, committed to South Carolina. Flip potential to UGA has gone from 25% to 50% and is now up to 60%. He had a very good visit to Georgia but will visit with the Gamecocks this weekend before NSD.
Devonte Wyatt  –  2017 DL, Committed to Georgia. Flip potential to South Carolina is 55%, was 45%. The Bulldogs could lose Wyatt to South Cacky-Lacky, but the coaching staff has done everything they can here. A lot will depend on Wyatt’s visit to the Gamecocks this weekend.
