    In the end recruiting rankings are very subjective and final evaluations cannot be reached for another 3 years. There's little question that Bama reeled in a great 2019 class, regardless of Rivals rankings.
    It’s ok, we know it’s important to you guys! As someone mention, sports talk ate it up in Atlanta! As did some on your board, ‘Nova. Maybe UGA fans would be better served if they hold Kirby to higher on-field standards instead of recruiting wins! Still it’s strange when one school has a higher average and more recruits, yet is ranked lower! Formula anomalies , I guess. But the crazy thing about it, Bama still pulled in a Top class while replacing most of the coaches.....again! Imagine what will happen when most of the staff stays together!

    Pickens put you guys at #1. As someone above mentioned, I doubt he ever plays, but maybe Kirby can do things Richt couldn’t.

    Re: Georgia with the #1 recruiting class?

    The ranking is just a number and doesn't mean much. The gap between #1 and #2 in terms of talent is minimal. Now it's down to what both can do with that talent. Honestly both teams finished really strong. Does it matter who Rivals announced as #1? We're #1 on a number of other services. It's all subjective and we'd be silly to not be tremendously pleased by this class even if we were a little shallow on ILB.

    I enjoyed JessN's article on grading Bama's position recruiting haul and wonder if he or someone here will do the same for the rest of the SEC teams and maybe a few of the top national contenders. Filling needs is the main thing for each team regardless recruiting rankings by stars and points systems. Did Georgia for instance grade as well as Bama per position? Or LSU, Texas A&M, so forth?

    In the last 24 hrs. UGA has picked up two more players. One is a 6'5" starting WR from Miami named Lawrence Cager and Eli Wolf a starting TE from Tenn.

    We have a QB who has been in our system for years, and 2 Freshmen QBs that everyone wanted. Georgia sold their soul to get Justin Fields and now he is gone and they have nothing as a backup. They’re dumb.

    205 pound TE?!? Sounds like practice fodder. Nothing to brag about there...

    Both transfers, not counted in the recruiting classes. If UGA was desperate for a TE how did 3 Star recruit Tyler Fromm from Warner Robbins, GA sign with auburn?

    Agree Chop. Say this though, if Kirby Smart doesn`t win a national championship in the next two years, with the talent they`ve accumulated, he ought to be banished forever from Athens. No excuses ( well, with the possible exception of the only two teams that are close to them in talent, us and Auburn with a lake ). What are my takers that CNS wouldn`t with UGA`s talent? If the UGA fans don`t have that expectation, then Mark Richt scarred them for life as far as what they`ve come to expect and are satisfied with is concerned.

    Wolf is 6'4" 236 lbs. according to this article. He also represented the Vols as a Captain during SEC Media days. A few weeks under Scott Sinclair and he'll be 245+lbs. He's an insurance policy.

    I expect Cager to have more of an impact on offense. At 6'5" and sticky hands, he makes a nice Red Zone target.

    Gibbs had off the field issues and those troubles prevented him from breaking through on the field. I wish him the best at UT.
