Recruiting Roundup: NSD Eve, part two

With those preliminaries out of the way, onto some updates.
Sheldon Dawson committed last night
  • Sheldon Dawson, all Dawg! Tennessee's top prospect becomes Georgia's 17th commitment.
  • Dawson's commitment is huge for many reasons. Not the least of which is the fact that he is the Dawgs' first DB commit in this class. He can be a big playmaker all over the field.
  • Josh Harvey-Clemons will apparently narrow his choices down to two schools this evening on a local radio show. Hard to give an educated guess since he and his family are pretty well bunkered in. But if you twisted my arm I'd say Florida and Georgia.
  • Brandon Greene says he's all Bama. But he's evidently bringing two hats to his announcement on Wednesday. I can see this either of two ways: 1) after pissing Saban off by visiting Athens he doesn't want to lose his place at the Tide table, so he keeps saying he's Bama despite the fact that he wants at least some intrigue in his LOI ceremony. 2) he wants to surprise everyone Wednesday and get as dramatic as possible. Regardless, I think he's still one to watch.
  • Rumors of Chester Brown possibly being able to navigate through the immigration issues and sign with Georgia appear to be dead. He'll sign tomorrow ($$) with a new school at a new position.
  • Other rumors about the mystery recruit(s) abound. Who could they be? Another defensive back? Another big offensive lineman?
Once again, here are the times for tomorrow's announcements, along with my prediction for where they sign.

Dalvin Tomlinson - 8:45 Bama
Jaquay Willliams - 8:45 Auburn
Josh Harvey-Clemons - 9:00, ESPNU Georgia
Brandon Greene - 9:00 Bama
Kenderious Whitehead - 9:00 NC State
Will Redmond - 9:30 Miss State
Josh Dawson - 10:00 Georgia
Cordarrelle Patterson - 11:30 Georgia
Avery Young - 2:00, ESPNU Georgia

Lastly, this class is shaping up to be a good one. I don't really get into recruiting rankings and who has how many stars and all that. Instead, I think it's important to address needs, make every effort to sign the talent in Georgia and build quality depth for the future. I think we have a really good chance to cover those bases tomorrow. Should be a fun day! Hope you'll join us.
