Dawg Night is Here
There typically two nights a year that are generally regarded as "big deals" when it comes to recruiting for the Georgia Bulldogs. One is the year-end Gala, where recruits get to witness the annual black-tie affair where Georgia honors its players and hands out its annual post-season awards.
The second takes place tonight, when over 100 prospects from around the state and country will converge on Athens for the annual Dawg Night.
So, what is Dawg Night?
Basically, it's a one-day event where some of the best high school talent comes, gets to check out UGA, it's academic and athletic facilities, before working out for coaches later in the evening.
It's an opportunity for Georgia to make its pitch, for coaches to get an up-close look at top targets, make offers, and sometimes - receive commitments.
Will the Bulldogs add to their current list of 12 commitments? That remains to be seen. But generally, there always seems to be one or two who use Dawg Night to pull the trigger.
It's sure to be a busy day. There's certainly no shortage of talent scheduled to be on hand.
Running back commitments Sony Michel and Nick Chubb will be here, along with tight end commitment Jeb Blazevich, offensive lineman Jake Edwards, defensive lineman Dontaivius Russell, linebacker Detric Dukes and safety Nick Glass.
While coaches will obviously make these commitments feel welcome, they will also be giving special attention to a number of top 2014 non-committed players, including offensive lineman Dyshon Sims, defensive lineman Elisha Shaw, five-star defensive end Lorenzo Carter, wide receiver Shakenneth Williams, offensive lineman Isaiah Wynn, linebacker Christian Miller, linebacker Raekwon McMillan, cornerback Kenderius Webster, safety Cortez McDowell, safety Kendall Gant and safety CJ Hampton.
A number of top 2015 targets will also be here, several with offers, including defensive lineman Trenton Thompson, defensive lineman Dallas Warmack, defensive end Natrez Patrick, running back Jordan Scarlett running back Jaques Patrick, offensive lineman George Brown and cornerback Terry Godwin.
