Monday Morning ‘Dawg Bites

NCAA Football: SEC Championship-Georgia vs Auburn Jason Getz-USA TODAY Sports

You’ve got presents to buy, carols to sing, a few bowl games to watch, and so much more on your plate. You may even be working this Monday morning. No judgment here.

But before you get about your morning here’s a quick your of what’s going on in Bulldog Nation.

The early National Signing Day, which looks to be THE signing day this year, is right around the corner. Georgia hosted a ton of top players this weekend.

Georgia has crept up the list of states with blue chip talent over the past few years, and may have now turned the “big three” of Florida, Texas, and California into a big four.

One of the blue chip recruits on Georgia’s radar this year is Stockbridge defensive end Brenton Cox. 247Sports lists him as a five star prospect, the #2 strongside defensive end in the nation, and the #5 player in the Peach State. Cox decommitted from Ohio State recently, and announced via Twitter yesterday that he’ll decide on Wednesday between Georgia and Alabama.

The Tide appeared to have the momentum coming out of his decommitment, but Georgia got his last official visit this weekend and seems to have a real shot. If somehow Georgia were able to also land five star defensive end Micah Parsons (another weekend visitor to the Classic City), the Red and Black’s recruiting at defensive end would go 0 to 100 in a hurry.

In Rose Bowl news, Georgia unveiled its uniforms for the game. The jersey isn’t black and the pants aren’t red so really from there it’s all kind of a non-item in my book. I don’t understand why there’s a shiny black Nike swoosh but the pants themselves aren’t the old shiny “silver britches.”

The other big news in that DawgNation roundup? Both Justin Fields and Jamaree Salyer will sign on Wednesday rather than waiting until later. That’s good news for Bulldog fans who were worried that Fields might be making googly eyes at another program. It also should ease some fears about Salyer, who’s gotten the full court press from Clemson.

In NFL Dawg news, Todd Gurley may have just scored again. Tarboro’s finest should probably be a part of the NFL MVP discussion this season if he’s not already, having amassed over 1800 yards from scrimmage and 17 touchdowns in 14 games.
