Countdown to NSD - 25 days

So we started our annual trek towards National Signing Day a couple days ago. Here's a quick update to go along with those weekend chores.
  • We talked briefly about Montravius Adams on Wednesday. He is visiting Clemson this weekend while the Tigers appear to have a slight lead over the others trying to gain his signature. Clemson has swayed some big time recruits recently but don't expect a surprise commitment as Adams hits Tuscaloosa next before finishing his official visits in Athens on the 25th.
  • But...Georgia coaches visited Adams yesterday morning at Dooly Co. High School and included in that visit was new defensive line coach Chris Wilson. Word is that the visit went well and that Wilson made a good first impression.
  • Reuben Foster is also scheduled to visit on the 25th and would undoubtedly provide instant help at a position of need, inside linebacker. Although he's in Washington this weekend the battle is truly between Georgia and either Auburn or Alabama. May come down to who Foster is better friends with, Auburn commit Dee Liner (who is also considering Bama) or Georgia's early enrollee Tray Matthews. Matthews likes the Dawgs chances.
  • One visit Georgia isn't going to have to wait on is Devondre Seymour, Richard Seymour's younger relative that he has adopted as his son. The Seymours will be in Athens this weekend and word is Georgia is very much interested in the somewhat raw offensive lineman (Devondre is fairly new to football, but has great size - 6'6" and 320 lbs - and upside). Now that the elder Seymour is done with his season, the concentration will be on finding his son a place to further his skills at the college level. There's a chance he may not qualify for 2013, but the Dawgs are interested in adding him to their roster regardless.
  • Lastly, one of the things about recruiting that never ceases to amaze me is how much the practice of it has changed over the years as well as how much more attention it gets from fans. This look back by Ching in his interview with Scott Woerner is pretty cool in that regard. So close to being a Longhorn, and never becoming Woerner the Returner!
