Get on the "G" Train Soon, Fellas - Seats are Limited...

Georgia's annual "DawgNight" is the single largest annual 'on-campus' recruiting event. The last 48 hours have been very, very good for filling positions of need which have been addressed with a bang!

If you haven't been keeping a tally, Georgia has received 4 verbal commitments from some very talented kids. Of the 4, two are offensive linemen and very good ones at that. One in-state offensive linemen, Dyshon Sims, a 6' 4" 280 lb. tackle prospect (Lowndes) and and Florida kid - Isaiah Wynn, 6' 2" 273 lb. guard (Lakewood - St. Petersburg) have pledged to play ball for the Dawgs. Sims is probably rated a bit low by some recruiting analysts, but has the wingspan and footwork to become a very effective tackle in the SEC. Rivals has Isaiah Wynn as a 4-Star guard and will probably be able to add another 20 lbs. of muscle to a frame ideally suited to block the gaps or pull and pave the way for the wealth of riches we have at running back; now and in the future.

One of the more intriguing commits is another Florida kid who was being courted heavily by the in-state Gators and Alabama. Kendall Gant, a 6' 2" 186 lb. hitter out of Lakeland (Lake Gibson) is a bit of an enigmatic prospect at this point, but the list of schools wanting his commitment and the fact that Todd Grantham and Bryan McClendon were on him fast and frenetically tells me all I need to know. He's a rapidly rising prospect in all the recruiting services and 247Sports lists him as a top 300 prospect nationally. More defensive backfield help? Why, yes please.

Shakenneth Williams was the first new 'Dawg to get on the G Train as it pulled up to Stegeman Station on Friday night. Another Georgia kid from Macon (Rutland H.S.), Williams has good speed (4.5/40) and excellent hands with ample receiver size at 6' 2" 195 lbs.

Mark Richt has room for another 6 or 7 commitments in the 2014 class, and with the news of a de-commit from wide-receiver Krenwick Sanders (Wayne County), expect the heat to be really turned up on Josh Malone of Gallatin, Tennessee. Could this Top 100 prospect be lured away from the Vols? His offer list is long and it would it would be a bit of a coup to snag him from the Volunteer State...but Georgia is a player in this and momentum can do strange and wonderful things in the world of recruiting.

We might not be done yet for the week: Five-Star defensive tackle Lamont Gaillard out of Fayetteville, N.C. is expected to make his commitment official very soon. At 6' 3" and a 6" sub sandwich short of 315, he could be the nose tackle of the future...but also can motor for a big man. Georgia and 'Bama are going to duke it out for blue-chip OLB Christian Miller from Columbia, SC.

Go Dawgs!
