Makes sense. I didn't even think about him visiting but still not having contact with the coaches.

I'm not worried about him going to uga for an additional visit. If he goes, he'll have a good time, spend some time with Shaq, and then get ready the next week for our visit. Then he'll see he could come in and start and bada bing, there we go.

this sounds like an instant replay from last year.....as many have already said, if he can't see early playing time with us over Georgia, and the number of DB's in the NFL, then there's nothing we can say to convince him otherwise....

According to Chris Clark, Green is going to Athens this weekend just to see his buddies there and won't have any coach interaction....this is exactly what happened in the Langley situation......plus he's going there on his own dime......toast.

I've said it before and it's worth repeating, for all the success we've had the last three years, some of our coaches are doing a crappy job in being able to take advantage of it on the recruiting trail. It's pretty frustrating.

So are you calling out Lorenzo Ward? He is the main recruiter for Wesley Green with help from Grady Brown.

He also is the main recruiter for BAW, Googer, and J'haustin Thomas.

If you are trying to call out a guy like coach Robinson on the recruiting trail, you have a point but not in this thread and he was involved with 3 commits from the 2013 class.

He is still coming here for an official on the 17th. That will determine it, and it should be a great weekend.

If a player, Green, is a fan of a school, UGA, and he gets an offer from said school, then it's an uphill battle no matter how good our team is, how good our coaches recruit or how good an opportunity for early playing time.

Exactly.
Sometimes, no matter how hard you recruit a guy, you won't get him.
That is the risk you take when you recruit from Georgia like we do. Those kids grow up UGA fans...and if that is where they are deadset on going, it doesn't matter what you say, or how you say it, or how hard you recruit them.

My opinion is that he doesn't want to tell Lorenzo Ward 'no' right now. The pay sites have reported a couple weeks ago that the word from Green's camp is that he wants to go to Georgia but his inner circle is pushing USC.

If his heart's at UGA, then he needs to go. Can't fault a kid for that. Too much pressure within these "circles" of recruits.

There's a reason he decommitted......UGA is apparently his childhood favorite team plus his coach, being a GA guy, is pushing him to Athens.

You're right, you can't fault him for that, but you can fault him for his apparent lack of honesty with our coaches.

I will say there have been some misses, but if we were to miss on Green it's of no fault of the staff. They positioned themselves to get a top recruit out of Georgia. That's not easy to do considering the powers in-state and out that recruit that state. We still have a chance, we are just in a fight for him.
