DawgNation’s Jeff Sentell joined Jon Chuckery and Randy McMichael Saturday to talk about the latest with the Georgia Bulldogs recruiting class. Sentell on anything to keep an eye on with recruiting over the next few weeks... 

“Not a lot of presents under the tree left," said Sentell. "Maybe only two to three more names. Player retention is the key moving forward. After certain players have left, including multiple tight ends, they (UGA) are now very thin at this position. There are a couple of tight ends to keep an eye over the next few weeks. They do need to find three to four elite cornerbacks to match up with Alabama moving forward.”

Sentell was then asked if UGA’s 2018 recruiting class is still elite with Justin Fields leaving. 

“Yes they are," said Sentell. "They still had seven of the top 50 players in the class with Fields and tight end Luke Ford leaving. That doesn’t even include wide receiver Demetrius Robertson.”

Sentell went on to say, keep an eye on Stetson Bennett as far as the backup quarterback spot goes.

Sentell on Georgia losing Mel Tucker and Jim Chaney. 

“Tucker is interesting because Kirby (Smart) will always put his stamp on this defense," said Sentell. "Internally there is a reason why certain coaches left to go to Colorado with Mel Tucker. Derrick Ansley is the name to keep an eye when it comes to a new defensive coordinator. It might be a mic drop when it comes to recruiting.”

Sentell then went on to talk about what new offensive coordinator James Coley will bring to the table.
