The UGA football program will be looking for a bounce-back season from second-year coach Kirby Smart.
After going 8-5 and finishing outside of the top 25 in the country, Smart needs to bring in talented players and start winning in a hurry.
After all, his predecessor was fired after starting a season 9-3.
He got a big boost in his efforts towards getting Georgia over the hump in the SEC. On Tuesday, he obtained a commitment from one of the most talented players in the 2018 recruiting class.
Zamir White is the nations no. 1 ranked running back, and he’ll be toting the rock for the Bulldogs in college.
They packed the stadium just to get that picture. That’s how big a deal this signing is for the Georgia program.
White is also the no. 6 overall prospect in the country, and has been known by the nickname “Zeus” in his neighborhood for a number of years. He held offers from an unthinkable number of schools, and had his pick among the most prestigious programs in the country.
He chose Georgia over similar offers from Alabama, Clemson, North Carolina and Ohio State to name a few. It’s easy to see why:
By the looks of it, there is nothing he can’t do.
It seems like when he isn’t running past someone, it’s because he’s running over them. Utilized properly, and with decent enough blocking, he could be the piece that starts to make inroads towards taking down the Alabama war machine.
