    There's something I've been wondering ever since On3 came to prominence. Why is it that they're always referenced in these articles alongside the industry composite? Why are they the one recruiting service whose ranking is considered as important/meaningful as the collective ranking of all other services? Or is it that theirs is the one ranking that doesn't get factored into the composite - and if so, why not?

    Welcome to you new HOME Derrek, and all success in your journey becoming a DGD……after watching the clips, I'm thinking a 20.0 200 time is close at hand…..I felt for your coach trying to keep up!

    He looks like a Dillon Bell, KJ Bolden type of player which is great. We definitely need more safety help.

    ’26? Let’s talk in about a year and a half. These commitments mean about as much as the eleven year old that is committing to a different school every day.

    With portal and NIL messiness of college ball these days, it's hard to get too excited about 2026… but I do hope the kid and his most talented buddies are in Athens in a couple of years, and grateful that Kirby and staff are doing their best to get the best. Go Dawgs!

    I don’t get excited about commitments. When they sign is important, but even that isn’t binding anymore with the no rules transfer portal and free for all NIL which is a joke and so is this pending court case vs the ncaa.

    I used to feel that way but it costs me nothing to show some excitement and wish him well. That's my go forward half glass full view now.

    Kid looks like a KJ clone from tape. His Freshman year would be KJs Junior and last year so the timing makes sense for him to come to Georgia. Sure he is going to play the NIL game - he is a 5 star guy. Don't let that upset you - just business.

    unless you are Deion or Lane Kiffin, HS recruiting is still the baseline for programs like UGA. Get the best on board, sign who you can, flip some others, and portal if needed!! GO DAWGS
