Blackout visitor list is quite impressive
Georgia will be playing a huge game between the hedges this weekend when they host Alabama. Not only will they play in front of a national television audience on ESPN along with over 92,000 fans inside Sanford Stadium, but they will be playing in front many current UGA commitments, many of their top remaining 2009 targets, and a long list of 2010 prospects on their early radar.
With 14 commitments already, the Dawgs only have room for around five more in the class of 2009.
Five of Georgia's top targets to close out this class will be in Athens this weekend. Marlon Brown will be the only one on an official visit, but the Memphis (TN) receiver will be joined be four other fellow Rivals100 prospects between the hedges on unofficial visits.
Branden Smith and Jarvis Jones will stay home this weekend and visit the top in-state program and Orson Charles and Jawanza Starling will be up from the state of Florida.
Another senior the Dawgs are high on that is working on improving his academics is Derrick Lott and he will be making his second trip to Athens this fall.
Two more Peach State senior receivers will be in town and both are committed to other schools. Stephen Hill (UCF) and Jamal Patterson (Stanford) have started picking up interest from the Dawgs over the past two weeks and both will listen to the Dawgs if they offer.
2009 linemen Jadareious Hamlin and Duran Christophe are two seniors still in regular contact with the UGA coaches. Neither have offers, but both are still being recruited and evaluated. Hamlin is a DL and Christophe is an OL.
Linebacker Eric Fields will also be in attendance. He is a soft Clemson commitment at best, but he tells most around his school including his coach that he is open. He likes UGA, but UGA is not currently pursuing him.
