Chat with Kipp Adams

Hello everyone and thanks for joining me today. I will do my best to answer as many questions you have in regards to recruiting for the University of Georgia. Feel free to follow me on twitter at @KippLAdamsLet's dive in.

Thomas (Jeffersonville, Georgia)

How well do you think Georgia's upcoming class will be?

Kipp Adams
  (1:07 PM)

Well Thomas, it is tough for me to project just how the entire class will shape up for the Bulldogs, but I am impressed with the commitments they have been able to get so far. What should be especially exciting is that six of the seven commitments have stated plans to enroll early.They are in great shape for several big time prospects right now and the state of Georgia is loaded, so I see no reason to believe another top 5 class is possible.

How do you think we fair with Riles after this weekend?

Kipp Adams
  (1:09 PM)

I think Georgia is in very good shape with Archer (Ga.) DE Antonio Riles, and I would not be surprised if he makes a decision sooner rather than later. Should be interesting to see how his recruiting develops as he has intriguing size and natural physical ability.

Matt (athens)

Where do we stand with Langley? It seems liked he was upset when we offered the kid out of FL on friday.

Kipp Adams
  (1:12 PM)

Langley is still very early in his evaluation of the programs that have offered, and really it is neck and neck with Alabama and Georgia right now. I think the Bulldogs have done a good job selling him on playing both sides of the ball, and he knows they have made him a big priority for the secondary in this class.

Andrew (Atlanta)

Who are some other guys we are looking at at OLB? Seems like we just have Mustafa and thats it. I know we took a few last year, but havent seen to many offers go out to OLB.

Kipp Adams
  (1:13 PM)

Yeah I noticed that last week as well, and as Alpharetta (Ga.) standout Naim Mustafaa points out, he is their No. 1 target at outside linebacker at the moment. With needs at other positions this year, Georgia will likely be picky on who they take at positions they have some depth at.

Kevin (UGA)

What was the reason Reuben didnt visit? I heard he had the SAT/ACT practice test, heard he was riding with Matthews but Tray came up friday and RF couldnt do that. What was the reason.

Kipp Adams
  (1:33 PM)

Sorry for the hiccup there, let me see if I can jump back in.

Kipp Adams
  (1:35 PM)

The timing just did not work out for Reuben Foster to visit again this week. Tray Matthews came up to Athens on Friday to spend time with Alec Ogletree, and Reuben was still in Tuscaloosa at the time. They also told me Reuben had an ACT class on Saturday, so there would have been no way to get him to Athens.I expect him to be back for spring practice.

willy (fay)

so how is georgia going to sneak into the sec championship game against this year?

Kipp Adams
  (1:36 PM)

I heard they were given a key to get in, so keep an eye out for the team buses on Friday night before the game in December.

Anthony (Jesup, GA)

Heard Adams had a good time this weekend and Clemson is no longer his leader. Said he could improve Uga's D. If we get him how much do our chances of getting Foster increase?

Kipp Adams
  (1:39 PM)

If Georgia is able to reel in Montravius Adams, they would be adding an elite defensive end for its 3-4 scheme. But I do not see it affecting Reuben too much, because he is already seriously considering the Bulldogs. A lot of his friends are going to play for Georgia, the depth chart is extremely favorable to him, and Kirk Olivadotti and Todd Grantham have really established a strong bond with Reuben. Right now chances are fairly strong he could be playing in Athens when all is said and done. But doubt Alabama is going to just sit quietly and allow him to switch.

Louis (Lagrange)

Who are some of the targets at ILB, CB and WR that we are in good shape with?

Kipp Adams
  (1:41 PM)

At inside linebacker, Johnny O'Neal, Reginald Carter, Reuben Foster and the recently offered Ben Boulware are guys that have Georgia high on their list.At cornerback, Brandon Langley and the newly offered Reggie Wilkerson have Georgia in their top group.At wide receiver, Marquez North, Uriah LeMay, DeMarcus Robinson, and Tramel Tery are all seriously considering the Bulldogs.

Michelle Carvelle (athens)

What kind of interest does Standish Dobard have in UGA? Are there any in-state tight ends who are looking for an offer from UGA?

Kipp Adams
  (1:47 PM)

Standish actually has mentioned Auburn and Georgia as his top two, which bodes well for the Bulldogs since he has yet to visit Athens to my knowledge. Georgia's history with TE's is definitely helping to position them well for him, and they will likely bring him in this month.The only TE in Georgia that has caught my eye early is Jordan Davis from Thomson HS, but I am sure more will emerge over the next few months.

Bubba (Zell B. Miller Student Learning Center)

It would appear Ben Boulware is a relatively new target. Would he be considered a UGA lean?

Kipp Adams
  (1:50 PM)

Ben received an offer Saturday, so you are correct in that he is a new target, although Georgia has been recruiting him for quite some time.With new offers coming in every week for Boulware, I think it is too early to project who leads for him, but I do know the UGA offer is one he REALLY wanted to get, and I believe he was prepared to come to camp this summer and earn it. Getting it now has to make him feel good about how Georgia sees him as a player.

Max (Fort Knox)

Is it a possibility that UGA gets down in Florida and grabs Ahmad Fulwood and Laremy Tunsil after already taking Derrick Henry out of the sunshine state?

Kipp Adams
  (1:52 PM)

I feel if Georgia can get Tunsil on campus a few times before he makes his decision, they will stand a strong chance to land the top offensive tackle out of Florida two years in a row.But with Fulwood, I think Florida is the team to beat for him right now, with possibly Alabama giving him a lot to think about. The Gators are right in there with Tunsil as well.

Tony (Richmond, CA)

Is Uriah Lemay the brother of Georgia quarterback Christian? If so, that has to bode well for the Dawgs.

Kipp Adams
  (1:54 PM)

Yes Uriah is the brother of current UGA QB Christian LeMay. While his family is going to allow Uriah to make his own decision, the allure of being able to play together in college has to be a big selling point for the Bulldogs, as well as the fact that the same core values that stood out to Christian and his family will still apply with Uriah.

Nolan (Athens)

Where do we sit with Robert Nkemdiche? I haven't heard him say much about UGA while I heard he had a great time at Ole Miss.

Kipp Adams
  (1:58 PM)

Georgia continues to creep into the top group for the elite defensive end from Grayson. Still difficult to really asses just how much consideration he is giving any other program right now. I have had extensive conversations with Robert since he was a freshman, and I never came away thinking he was going anywhere other than Tuscaloosa to play college football.That could very easily change with one conversation with a college coach, because that is why they get paid the big bucks.

Ryan (Macon)

Where will Derrick Henry Play in College

Kipp Adams
  (2:04 PM)

That question is in my opinion going to be one of the most intriguing debates next year. Analysts will debate whether he is a running back, tight end, or outside linebacker, but I do not feel Georgia is even considering him anywhere on defense right now.Henry will get his chance to prove he is a running back, and with his athleticism and production at the HS level, I think he has earned the opportunity.

DPaul (tampa)

Where do you feel we stand with Kublanow at this point?

Kipp Adams
  (2:06 PM)

Early on Brandon clearly stated Georgia was his dream school, and since then he has kind of stepped back and stated plans to evaluate his options a little more.He and his family will likely discuss everything and make a decision by the end of the summer, and I think Georgia has a great shot at landing the mauler from Walton high school.

David (Lawrenceville)

Have you heard anything about some possible commitments this week coming off the heels of VID day?

Kipp Adams
  (2:09 PM)

Going into the weekend, I heard plenty from fans and current commitments, but no one decided to pull the trigger.I think there might be a prospect or two ready to decide very soon, and I would reserve judgement on the success/failure of the weekend. Georgia fans should be very pleased with how everything went with the targets in town and the new offers made. The staff is showing more aggression on the recruiting trails, and are honing in on the top talent in Georgia.

Kipp Adams
  (2:10 PM)

Well guys that will wrap things up for today. Sorry for the connection issues, but I will do my best to answer as many of your questions in next week's mailbag. As always you can reach me on twitter and on The Pound message board on ESPN DawgNation.Have a great afternoon everybody!
