Welp, now that the weekend from recruiting hell is over, let’s get back to the business of talking about prospects who might—and I use might in a very broad sense considering the events of this past weekend—actually want to play for the University of Georgia next season.
Davin Bellamy took a short trip out west over the weekend to visit the University of Oregon, and while he came away with a glowing report about the Ducks’ facilities, and their potential plans for him should he choose their program over others, Georgia still leads for him as of now.
“After the Oregon visit, they are in it. But right now, Georgia is my leader and Tennessee and Oregon are tied for that two-spot,” Bellamy said. “There really isn’t a third school because Tennessee and Oregon are just that close. Georgia is leading the way. I do plan on making a decision on February 6. If I’m not ready to make a decision on then, like I have told everybody, I’ll don’t mind waiting.” (Jake Rowe, Rivals)
Now, given the circumstances surrounding the recruitment of Laremy Tunsil (still scratching my head over how quickly that one turned), Alvin Kamara (what can you do?), Reuben Foster (can’t say I’m surprised anymore), and Toby Johnson (funny how that Kelsey Griffin decision might come back to bite us, ain’t it?), most Georgia fans who bother to follow recruiting at all are likely numb—I’ve personally gone into ‘believe-it-when-I-see-it’ mode—so they’re hardly holding their breath on Bellamy.
However, you have to start looking for that silver lining to start somewhere, right. Given that, I’m just being the messenger today, don’t shoot me.
