Trent Thompson, the 5-star defensive tackle from Albany’s Westover High School, committed to UGA over Alabama and Auburn last Tuesday. That was a big deal in Georgia, because for the second year in a row they landed the states top recruit. Receiver Jayson Stanley of Creekside High School in Fairburn announced his commitment last Saturday night. Rated a four-star prospect, Stanley (6-foot-2, 198 pounds) dedicated his commitment to his late brother. Jonathan Ledbetter, a 4-star defensive lineman from Tucker High School, announced his switch from Alabama to Georgia this past Saturday night. Georgia was around 10th in recruiting rankings before Thompson committed but now the are 5th according to the latest rankings out by 24/7 sports. Those rankings could soon change again if. top prospect recruit DE Josh Sweat commits. Sources are saying that defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt a making a big push for Sweat Georgia also got four-star OL Patrick Allen and three star JUCO RB Chris Carson a couple weeks ago too.
The only setback in recruiting was Rico Mcgraw who flipped from Georgia to Alabama, claiming he was just more impressed with Alabama facilities than Georgia’s. With Ledbetter flipping from Alabama to Georgia. it’s almost like these two schools are competing for the same recruits. Either way I’d have to say that the month of August has been big for the Dawgs future in football.
