Watch: Jeff Sentell shares the latest UGA intel on the recruiting front

Kirby Smart with Michail Carter

The DawgNation Facebook page transforms into a live recruiting show every Wednesday. The Facebook Live feature gives staff writer Jeff Sentell a forum to interact with Bulldogs fans about the shape of the program’s efforts on the recruiting front.

Of course, the appetite for team-related content right now is insatiable.

Who’s the quarterback? How many carries for Nick Chubb? Which players will line up in the first three-receiver set for the Bulldogs?

Those topics were very popular again this week.

As per the norm, this week’s edition clicked off the traditional T-shirt giveaway in the first five minutes. DawgNation reader Bert Crosson delivered that answer and he’ll see one of those unlimited edition T-shirts show up in his mailbox.

Our session this week generated more that 600 comments in 43 minutes. You can see the live chat in its entirety below.

The big recruiting questions centered on:

  • What’s the deal with five-star quarterback Trevor Lawrence from Cartersville High School?
  • Is Georgia any closer with DeAngelo Gibbs?
  • Our DawgNation audience falls hard for five-star tailbacks. What’s the latest with junior Zamir White?
  • How much does the de-commitment of Breon Dixon hurt Georgia with DeAngelo Gibbs?
  • Why would Lawrence want to join a program with big-timers like freshman Jacob Eason and January enrollee Jake Fromm already on the depth chart?
  • What’s the prediction for four-star CB Jamyest Williams?
  • What’s the latest with four-star RB D’Andre Swift out of Philadelphia?
  • Is Georgia now the team to beat for Lee County four-star defensive tackle Aubrey Solomon?

We also took a few minutes to take the temperature of the fan base on the following topics:

  1. Who is your pick for the starting quarterback?
  2. Do you play Sony Michel or sit him against North Carolina?
  3. Do you plan to watch the opener on TV or in person at the Georgia Dome?
  4. What are your expectations for that game? (Close win, Big win, loss, or toss-up)

That generated some interesting responses.
