Since 1995 - Insightful commentary on the Georgia Bulldogs

Post Recruiting stretch run timetable

Monday February 1, 2010

It looks to be one of the more active signing days in recent years on Wednesday. At least eight top prospects still have to announce their intentions between now and Wednesday. Here’s a list of anticipated dates and times of those announcements culled from the various message boards and recruiting services. Making predictions is way out of my league, though the Bulldogs are legitimate finalists for all even if the Dawgs might not be the favorite. No one expects to get close to all of them, but the Dawgs should get a couple from this list.

WR Kadron Boone – Monday afternoon
The latest: The 4-star receiver from Ocala, Fla. is a Texas Tech commitment, but he’s been visiting other schools since the coaching change in Lubbock and could choose either Georgia or LSU in addition to the Red Raiders when he announces on Monday.

DT Jeff Whitaker – Monday 2 p.m.
The latest: Auburn is considered the favorite for Warner Robins’ Whitaker. Georgia and Miami have made late pushes with Georgia’s new defensive coordinator Todd Grantham making a favorable impression last week. Whitaker will choose from between Auburn, Georgia, and Miami.

LB Telvin Smith – Monday evening
The latest: Smith, from Valdosta, committed to FSU over the summer, but he’s kept his recruitment open. Georgia got the last word with an official visit during the weekend of Jan. 22. If anyone can get Smith to turn from his FSU commitment, it would be Georgia.

DT Michael Thornton – Wednesday 9 AM
The latest: Stone Mountain’s Thornton has been very deliberate with his recruitment, and his measured approach has made it tough to get a read on his favorite. Georgia, Kentucky and Penn State were the only schools to receive official visits from Thornton, but he maintains that the lack of an official visit doesn’t necessarily eliminate other schools like Auburn. Georgia figures to have as good of a shot as anyone.

WR Da’Rick Rogers – Wednesday 9:45 AM
The latest: Few Signing Day announcements will get the attention given to this one in Calhoun. Rogers of course is one of the top receiving prospects in the nation this year, and his commitment to Georgia was considered quite solid up until a few weeks ago when Tennessee entered the picture. They’ve offered Rogers’ teammate and close personal friend Nash Nance who backed out of an earlier commitment to Vanderbilt in order to jump on the new offer from the Vols. It didn’t do much to calm the nerves of Georgia fans to see Nance and Rogers in Knoxville for the UT-Florida basketball game over the weekend. Still, Rogers has said nothing to indicate that he is de-committing from Georgia or even leaning towards Tennessee.

ATH Christian Green – Wednesday 3:30 PM
The latest: Green, from Tampa, could develop on either side of the ball (receiver or defensive back) with his great physical talent. It’s between FSU and Georgia, and Green visited Tallahassee last week after receiving in-home visits from both schools.

WR Adrian Coxson – Wednesday 5 PM
The latest: Baltimore’s Coxson was a Penn State commitment, but now it seems that he’s down to Florida and Georgia with Notre Dame an outside contender.

ATH Jordan Akins – Wednesday
The latest: The home-state Bulldogs are the favorite for McDonough’s Akins, but he’ll also be considering several other schools including Maryland and Ole Miss.
