UGA football Signing Day 2015 updates
Wednesday, February 4 is National Signing Day 2015. The Georgia Bulldogs are once again expected to sign a Top 10 class.
Mark Richt and the Dawgs currently have 25 verbal commitments. Georgia’s 2015 class is currently ranked 3rd by Scout.com, 6th by Rivals.com, and 7th by 247Sports.
The Dawgs are hoping to land a few of their big-time uncommitted targets:
- DaQuan Hawkins (3-star DT, 6-4, 303) – Will announce between Georgia and Missouri at 8:30am.
UPDATE: Hawkins has committed to UGA!
- Pat Allen (4-star OL, 6-4, 285) – Allen committed to UGA back in August, but then de-committed in January. He will choose between Georgia and Tennessee at 9am.
UPDATE: Allen has committed to UGA!
- Rico McGraw (4-star DB, 6-0, 180) – As with Pat Allen, McGraw was also committed to Georgia before de-committing and picking Alabama. He de-committed from the Tide last week and will now make his final decision at 11:10am on ESPNU.
UPDATE: McGraw has committed to UGA!
- Roquan Smith (4-star LB, 6-0, 203) – Smith is reportedly down to Georgia and UCLA. He will pick between those two at 11:20am.
UPDATE: Smith has committed to UCLA but has not signed.
UPDATE 2: Smith has signed scholarship papers with UGA.
- Kirby Choates, Jr. (DB, 5-11, 184_ – Choates doesn’t currently have an offer from UGA. He will choose between the Dawgs and Georgia Southern at 12:30pm.
UPDATE: Choates has committed to the Bulldogs!
- Nick Buchanan (3-star OT, 6-4, 285) – Buchanan de-committed from Cal on Monday and will now pick between Georgia and Florida at 2pm.
UPDATE: Nick Buchanan has committed to Florida.
- Terry Godwin (5-star ATH, 6-0, 168) – Godwin is a current UGA commitment and has been for over a year. Auburn has been making a late push for him, however. Godwin will sign with one of the two schools at 6pm.
UPDATE: Godwin has signed with UGA!
- Terrell Chatman (3-star WR, 6-4, 185) – Chatman, a Miami (FL) commitment, appears to be leaning towards home-state LSU. Georgia could gain his signature if one of their current WR commitments flips to another school.
UPDATE: Chatman will choose between Arizona State and TCU.
Of that group, Georgia appears to be in good shape with Pat Allen and Rico McGraw. Terry Godwin will also stick with UGA based on some recent reports.
Roquan Smith would be a huge pickup for the Dawgs, as would DaQuan Hawkins and Nick Buchanan.
UGA already has LOI’s from eight early enrollees:
- Johnathan Abram (DB, 6-2, 202)
- Chuks Amaechi (LB, 6-3, 220)
- Michael Barnett (DE, 6-5, 258)
- Jake Ganus (LB, 6-2, 225)
- Jackson Harris (TE, 6-6, 250)
- Jonathan Ledbetter (DL, 6-4, 265)
- Natrez Patrick (DE/OLB, 6-3, 243)
- Jarvis Wilson (CB, 6-2, 197)
