Recruiting Roundup - 7 Days til NSD

Frequent Flyer Mile Edition

In exactly 7 days, 0 hours and 0 minutes (as of the time of this posting) we will know for sure where Isaiah Crowell is going to play football this fall. Alabama, where he can be one of 54 incoming freshmen. Or Georgia, where he can be a part of Coach Richt's Dream Team.

Kent Turene may not be a USC Trojan
This week has been a week of follow ups so far for the Georgia coaches. Hope the wives and kids are managing okay, because the coaches have been all over the southeast ($$) visiting with players who just visited them as well as a few prospective recruits for this class and next.

Kent Turene remains one to watch closely and he hosted UGA coaches yesterday. And Antonio Richardson is in the same boat as he will get a visit Friday. Turene may be an easier target, but both players are getting the full court press. Chad Simmons also adds his thoughts ($$on whether Turene might sway his good friend Marcus Robertson to giving Georgia a look.

Jeoffrey Pagan is reconsidering his commitment to Clemson. Here's what his coach Danny Wilkins had to say:
"He is looking at Clemson, Georgia, and Alabama. He keeps changing his mind so we'll see what happens...I really don't know what he is going to do."
It's purely a gut feeling but I think it comes down to Georgia and Bama for Pagan, especially if we're able to get one last in-home visit as we're expected to. 

The next two days are huge with coaches expected to visit both Crowell and Jenkins Thursday and Ray Drew breaking WDE hearts on Friday.

Buckle up tight. Let's hope there's no turbulence. Go Dawgs!

Bernie you're the only one I've read who has brought up Pagan's name more than once in a positive light for us. I hope he reconsiders and becomes a Dawg. If he does, you get the cudos! Keep up the good work on recruiting.

Thanks to both of you.

As hard as our coaches are working and as much momentum as we have, you can't rule us out for Pagan. Especially for a kid who has already decommited once.

Clemson has geography, Bama has Saban and we have playing time.

Actually just heard Pagan and Clemson have parted ways. So now I REALLY like our chances.
