SDS– “Landing a commitment from “The Opening” competition camp is a big deal, as only the most talented high school prospects get invited to Nike headquarters. Pick up two commitments, like Georgia did, and the weekend becomes a huge success.
After picking up pledges from four-star RB Toneil Carter and four-star OL Andrew Thomas, the Bulldogs now have the No. 1 class in the SEC according to 247Sports Composite. Georgia ranks No. 2 overall nationally, leapfrogging Alabama. The nation’s top class currently belongs to Ohio State.
The Bulldogs have 15 commitments in their 2017 class. By star rating, Georgia’s class breaks down as follows: 1 five-star, 11 four-star and 3 three-star.”
Would you look at that! Bulldogs making moves left and right out here, and picking up two absolute STUDS over the weekend.
First up was Toneil Carter, and the kid’s tape is enough to make you drool over. This 5’11” Texas import is the number 5 rated running back in this draft class, and is built like a brick shit-house. He is an excellent mix of power and speed that will be a very nice addition to the backfield, and will be yet another stellar back to come through “Running Back U.”
As for the other addition, what’s a running back without a line to block for him? That is why you grab up an asset like Andrew Thomas. He’s a six-foot-five, three hundred and ten pound monster from Atlanta that makes pancaking D-linemen look easy. He perfectly fits O-Line coach Sam Pittman’s play scheme and will also be a pleasure to watch Between the Hedges.
The best thing about all this?
Kirby is proving to be the recruiter Georgia fans had hoped for him to be. A great deal of fans were a bit miffed about National Signing Day last year, but now he already has built a class that some programs would be happy with at the end of the year, and it’s only the summer.
It’s like he’s built a Trump-esque wall around the state of Georgia and won’t let any good recruits out, but made a little door for some outsiders to come join the party. He’s bringing the glory back to the Red and Black, and proving, once again, that it’s…
