NEWS & NOTES: Barnes was offered by the Bulldogs back in January and the Apopka High School big man put Georgia in his top seven he released on Thursday, July 27th along with Alabama, Auburn, Florida, FSU, UNC, and Ohio State. After he participated in Nike the Opening Finals, Barnes visited both the Tide and the Tarheels in July. If the Dawgs are looking to add a 2nd OT to the 2018 class in addition to Owen Condon, Barnes could be that guy. However, Florida and North Carolina are considered favorites here.

NEWS & NOTES: UGA offered Faalele back in January, one of the first 8 programs to do so, and he visited UGA on March 3rd. Faalele participated in Nike the Opening Finals over the summe, and he was one of the visiting prospects for Georgia’s homecoming game versus Missouri. From his tape, you can see his potential because of his size, but he is still very raw.

NEWS & NOTES: UGA was one of the first two schools to offer Johnson back in 2015. Kirby Smart, Sam Pittman and the Georgia staff have continued to recruit him. He definitely fits what Pittman likes in an O-lineman as far as his height, length, and overall size as well as rare athleticism for a player his size. Johnson has had a pretty quiet and low key recruiting process the last six to seven months, and that is partly due to the fact he doesn’t do a lot of camps.
