The Bulldog coaches are hosting the annual Dawg Nights prospect camp this weekend in Athens, and while the weather may have been a bit overcast the recruiting picture has been pretty darned sunny.
Georgia has reportedly secured commitments from 2012 offensive tackle John Theus. 2013 QB Bryce Ramsey and 2013 tailback Derrick Henry.
Theus is the younger brother of current Bulldog freshman Nathan Theus. It's not really a big surprise that he committed to Georgia given that his family indicated as early as last year's Dawg Night camp that the brothers preferred to play together. While it's not a big surprise, it's a big deal. That's because Theus has been tagged by some as the top offensive tackle prospect in the country. Given our depth issues on the line, this is good news and a coup for Will Friend.
Ramsey has been a Georgia lean for a while, and seems to have been recurring for the 'Dawgs. He's a product of Camden County, where Coach Herron's Wing-T offense doesn't give quarterbacks a lot of throwing opportunities. That said, the kid has been tearing it up on the camp circuit since he was a freshman. Having seen him throw the ball, I am more than pleased with his choice.
Henry was one of those guys Ramsey has been recruiting, a big bruising back out of Yulee, Florida. Henry reminds me a little of 2012 back Matt Jones, who committed to Florida in part because he was concerned with Georgia's depth at tailback after Isaiah Crowell signed.
I'll try to have more on these guys as the weekend progresses. For now, let's all welcome the newest 'Dawgs to the fold!
Update: Geez. It just doesn't stop. After posting the above I found out we got commitments from 2013 receiver Trammel Terry and lightning fast 2014 tailback Stanley Williams. The coaches also offered Bradwell Institute offensive lineman Chester Brown, who looks to be a huge sleeper.
