Crock Pot Recruiting VIII

I've been hustling all week long and haven't had much time to do much but read Dawg Sports and go to work. When you're in a pinch for time and are also responsible for putting something on the table that is good to eat, simplicity is best. What does this have to do with recruiting? Read on, my peeps...

Every signing class has to have a balance of talent. You need the big uglies up front who can block and protect your quarterback. You need guys on defense who can move, hit and wrap up. This is the core of any good team, but everyone - and I mean everyone - wants speed guys. Georgia is no different and has successfully targeted a few young men who can absolutely motor. One of those recruits who has been not only committed but is actually enrolled was pursued by just about anyone with a football pulse and was one of the most sought after play makers in the entire class of 2013.

This young man hails from Goose Creek, South Carolina on the northwestern side of Charleston. This particular part of the Palmetto State has been very, very good to Georgia of late. Former Dawg and current Cincinnati Bengal All-Pro receiver A.J. Green is from Summerville, which is literally a stone's throw from Goose Creek, just across I-29. Unfortunately, our featured recruit injured his knee in a post-season All-Star game but could possible be healed in time for August practice. This kid is all about speed but has been temporarily slowed. I think we should immortalize him in food of the "slow cooker" variety, don't you?


Tramel Terryaki Pork

Tramel Terry was South Carolina's "Mr. Football" for 2012 and, despite his recent knee injury, should heal up fine and be threat all over the field when he's healthy. He's 6-0 and is a solid 185 with a 40-yard dash time of Mach 3 (before the knee thingy. Word has it he's getting some bionic parts). Actually, he's been clocked consistently in the 4.4 range. That's fast, folks. Mike Bobo is salivating over the potential of getting this kid on the field in all kinds of different formations. I'm thinking first and bomb might actually work once Terry gets his wheels back. Anyway, we needed a super quick player and got him. You need a super quick and easy recipe and I've got you covered. Here's what you'll need directly from the blueprints...

  • 3/4 to 1 cup of teriyaki sauce. Kikkoman's makes a pretty decent one, but if you can find it try Annie Chun's teriyaki sauce. Better yet (if you have the time), here's an excellent recipe for home made sauce.
  • 1 tablespoon of brown sugar, 1/2 cup of minced garlic
  • 4 pork chops*, about 1 to 1 1/4 inches thick

Coat the inside of your Crock Pot with some cooking spray.

Mix the teriyaki sauce, brown sugar and garlic in a bowl.

Place the chops in the cooker.

Pour the mixture over the chops.

cover and cook on LOW for 7 hours.

That's it! Just a few ingredients and you'll have some nice, juicy pork chops with a wonderful teriyaki glaze. Serve with some rice (get crazy and try some basmati rice), a nice tossed salad or perhaps some sugar snap peas. For a slow cooker recipe, it's super fast, super easy and superfine.

For more on Tramel Terry, stay tuned for an in-depth analysis from our own Mr. Sanchez in the very near future, who has been doing an excellent job of late bringing you information on some of our early enrollees.

As we head towards National Signing Day, stay informed with all of us here at Dawg Sports as the Letters of Intent start rolling in. We've got a couple of big time prospects that are poised to sign with us, and perhaps a few surprises as well. When it happens, Wednesday could be off the hook. It should be a fun day, but if you show up hungry...well, it aint' my fault!
