The Sleeper: Georgia
Throughout Josh Sweat’s recruiting process, the Georgia Bulldogs have seemed to be a major player with Georgia having the first of three November official visits. The Bulldogs are an interesting team that could surprise some people tomorrow but are clearly not in a good enough position to be considered the favorite.
Part of the appeal of Georgia is the fact that the Bulldogs are the only SEC team that is in contention to get the five-star defensive end from Chesapeake, Virginia. The Bulldogs would likely move him to outside linebacker, but he would have the potential to get some playing time on second and third down blitzes.
The Bulldogs also have a very good defensive coordinator in Jeremy Pruitt who did a great job at Florida State last season and is working on rebuilding the Georgia defense. However, the Bulldogs are not an ideal defensive scheme fit for Sweat while Georgia also has not been a great defensive team over the last few seasons.
The Bulldogs have seemed to lurk around in this battle and definitely seem to be a sleeper to get Sweat. Personally, I don’t think Sweat will end up in Athens, but it would not be surprising if the Oscar Smith defensive end went to Georgia.
