Going from Good to Great
With a scant two weeks left for Georgia coaches to add the finishing touches to what is a good class, signs are pointing towards greatness. But anything can happen in 15 days.
- John Jenkins appears to be ours to lose ($$). He was in Miami this weekend, but Thursday we begin the full court press for our future NG. Coaches will see him in Connecticut one day before the entire Jenkins clan is expected in Athens. He along with Crowell would tip this class from good to great.
- Jenkins spent a lot of time with Ray Drew in Miami as they visited Coral Gables together. The Thomas County DE could announce as early as Sunday. And Jenkins claims to know where Drew will go.
“He and I really clicked down there,” said Jenkins, back at school in Gulfport, Miss., Monday. “He knew about me when I got down there and we just ended up hanging out together and talking a lot. He was just saying how he’d like to play where I play at. He said he wanted to be where I was playing nose so he can make some plays. We were talking about playing on the same line.”
- Of course the big news this week will be the Jay Rome and Malcolm Mitchell's announcements Thursday. The Valdosta teammates were in Tuscaloosa this weekend. I'd be shocked if we don't get a commitment from Rome, who hasn't really made it secret that that is the way he is leaning. Mitchell....about as close to a coin flip for recruitniks as there is.
- And one other thing to keep a close eye on this weekend will be how Quintavious Harrow reacts to his official visit to Athens. He'll be there with a lot of official talent, including his close cousin Isaiah Crowell. If Harrow commits to the man who slung him an offer as soon as the qualifying test score came in, could that be a tell for the nation's best running back?
