In Case You Missed It

Yesterday was a big day for the Georgia Bulldogs. We managed to pick up a couple of verbal commitments from Valdosta’s Jay Rome and Malcolm Mitchell. Rome and family drove down to Tallahassee to record his announcement on a segment that was aired on ESPNU yesterday afternoon while his teammate, Mitchell’s announcement was held at a local eatery and aired by a south Georgia radio station.

Check out both Rome’s and Mitchell’s commitment.

I especially liked the role Malcolm’s brother played in the process of his announcement, putting back his sister’s “choice” of hats until only one remained, emblazoned with the glorious Oval G.

Rome, if you’ll notice from his video, made a small gesture just before making his choice, swiping his nose in a move that he and his cohorts have dubbed the “Cocky Sniff”. Damian Swann made this same gesture during his announcement at the US Army All-America Bowl and Rome did it once again when he arrived at Mitchell’s announcement last evening.

Keep in mind that we’ve got a few big time recruits still left on the board, including Ray Drew, Isaiah Crowell, John Jenkins and Kent Turene, among others. Jenkins, Crowell, Turene and the recently committed Quintavious Harrow will be in Athens this weekend for their official visits and there’s a feeling that we may pick up one more commitment before the weekend is over. Whether this is true or not remains to be seen but we’ll know one way or another in the next few days. Also, Drew is slated to make his announcement next Friday, the 28th.

This is shaping up to be quite the month for the Dawgs. While it’s true that we’ve lost offensive line coach and run-game coordinator, Stacy Searels, to the Texas Longhorns, we’ve also added some new members to the Bulldog family. Coach Richt has addressed the issue of Coach Searels’ departure from Athens with our offensive line recruits and it’s said that they are all standing firm in their commitments.

While it’s always great to be a Georgia Bulldog, I have to say that this week has been especially nice. After a tumultuous season, some good news is just what this team and fan base needed. And we got that good news yesterday with, hopefully, more to come in the short time left before National Signing Day.

Go Dawgs!
