The Georgia Bulldogs (12-1), and SEC Champions, secured a commitment tonight from one young man named Trey Hill. His word might be bigger than he is.
If you hear that rumbling, that recruiting rumbling, it is the rumblings of a recruiting shift. The Georgia Football program is on the cusp of doing something that is unprecedented in UGA recruiting history, but also, in modern college football recruiting. Georgia Football has a legitimate chance to take the amorphous, yet significant, “recruiting crown.”
Yes, Ohio State and Alabama are the teams. Clemson will take umbrage. Miami might try to fight (that’s a shot), Penn State will protest, and there are other teams who contest. But, there is one team that has, as we say, “shook the world”.

The current football team in Athens has already done something that has surprised everyone. But what’s happening on the recruiting trail is something different. It is something that speaks to the future. And that is where the truth is.
Recruiting is the “life blood” of every big time program. If you don’t get that, then you’re lost. Completely. The great modern college football programs know this, and act accordingly. It is the mirror you are forced to look to.
Kirby Smart and his cohort of recruiting merry men are on a tear. And, frankly, I don’t think they will be stopped, dissuaded, or cajoled. They are insistent.
This is relevant because it is only their second full year of recruiting. There is a story to be told about the cottage, Billion Dollar Industry, that is modern college football recruiting, but that is for another time.
What we know is that Georgia Football is about to blow up. The players in, and being brought in, are “game changers”, and they know it. They are the baddest football players out there.
This writer thinks that there is a bigger shift going on. This writer thinks that the SEC East will be the ‘Daddy” in three short years.
One thing is clear, though. If Georgia gets a dude like Trey Hill, and all the other dudes he”s showing up with, the Georgia boys have stayed home.
That should scare everyone. Including, you know who.
