Georgia LB Tim Kimbrough entered the NFL Draft.

This had been the plan all along and it became official when the NFL released the official list of underclassmen who declared for the Draft on Friday. Kimbrough was a starter in 2015 but was jettisoned from the program by new HC Kirby Smart over the summer after a practice kerfuffle. Kimbrough sat out last season. He's no sure thing to get drafted. The NFL draft will be held April 27-29 in Philadelphia.

Georgia four-star 2017 verbal WR commit Mark Webb will take an official visit to Penn State on January 27.

Webb will be taking an official trip to Georgia this coming weekend, with his Penn State journey still on the horizon. The 6-foot-2, 193-pounder remains committed to UGA, but would like to take advantage of his visits nonetheless. Penn State earns the draw, here, due to Webb's tightness with Nittany Lions WR coach Josh Gattis. Rivals ranks the wideout as their No. 90 overall prospect for the 2017 cycle. That they see him as the 13th best receiver in this class is just a sign of the loaded state of this class of wideouts.

Rivals recruiting analyst Josh Helmholdt notes that Georgia four-star 2017 verbal RB commit D'Andre Swift "low center of gravity allows him to change direction quickly and makes him difficult to tackle."

Swift is fresh off an appearance in the U.S. Army All-American Bowl. During that all-star contest, the 5-foot-10, 208-pounder rushed for 36 yards on seven carries. That light workload comes with the territory of playing in an all-star game. Swift offers a strong level of explosivity, one which comes with a bruising ability to bowl through initial tackle attempts. With fellow RB Toeneil Carter flipping his commitment from Georgia to Texas earlier this winter, Swift is in a prime position to compete for starting carries once Nick Chubb and Sony Michel are off to the NFL after the 2017 season.

Rivals recruiting analyst Josh Helmholdt writes that Georgia four-star 2017 verbal QB commit Jake Fromm put forth "one of the best week-long quarterback performances we have seen in an all-star game" in the lead-up to last week's U.S. Army All-American Bowl.

"From the first throws on Monday until the in-game snaps on Saturday," Helmholdt notes, "Fromm was locked in the entire week." The 6-foot-2, 215-pound quarterback capped everything off with a beautiful 76-yard touchdown pass to FSU WR commit D.J. Matthews in the bowl itself. He stands as Rivals' No. 36 overall prospect for the 2017 cycle. Bulldog fans might have to wait a little while for the talented gunslinger to actually see a start with Georgia, though, as HC Kirby Smart and company are in the midst of developing sophomore-to-be Jacob Eason.

Rivals recruiting analysts Nick Krueger and Josh Helmholdt singled out Georgia four-star 2017 verbal QB commit Jake Fromm as one of the standouts from Army All-American Bowl practices on Thursday.

"Even though it was a shortened practice," the analysts wrote, "half of his best throws of the week came in Thursday’s action. The Georgia commit was dropping the football 40 yards downfield into the hands of wide receivers who had defensive backs in their back pocket." The 6-foot-2, 215-pounder attended Elite 11 camp over the summer, with former NFLer Trent Dilfer calling him a "natural passer" in the vain of Drew Brees and Chase Daniel. Rivals ranks Fromm as the No. 36 overall prospect in the 2017 class. As the Dawgs are already in the midst of developing Jacob Eason, a redshirt is probable for the coming campaign.

Georgia sophomore DB Kirby Choates intends to transfer.

Choates was not with the team in the second half of the season due to academic issues after playing in 11 games as a freshman. Choates was considered a 3-star recruit by scouting services.

Georgia received a verbal commitment from five-star 2017 ATH DeAngelo Gibbs.

There is a fair bit of range when it comes to how the standard recruiting outlets view Gibbs. ESPN 300 is the highest on the 6-foot-2, 207-pounder, placing him at No. 10 on their 2017 master list. Scout sees matters similarly and sees Gibbs home at No. 13. On the other end of the spectrum would be Rivals, who slots him in at No. 141. Rankings disparity aside, this is a fantastic pledge for HC Kirby Smart. Scout refers to him as a "special talent," noting that he could have the largest upside as a safety or corner. "His ball skills, body control, and speed are strengths on either side of the ball. Just a natural star," the outlet concludes.

Georgia junior S Dominick Sanders will return for his final season of eligibility in 2017.

Sanders has had a nose for the ball during his three years with the Bulldogs. The 6-foot, 185-pound junior has 12 career interceptions to his name, peaking with a hearty six of 'em in 2015. For the 2016 campaign, he registered 34 tackles (1.5 for loss), three picks and seven passes defended over the course of 13 games played.

Georgia junior WR Isaiah McKenzie will forego his final season of collegiate eligibility to enter the 2017 NFL Draft.

McKenzie didn't take long to announce his NFL jump, as Georgia just beat TCU 31-13 in the Liberty Bowl. McKenzie led the Bulldogs with four catches for 100 yards in that one to put a bow on a 2016 season in which he logged a 44-630-7 receiving line. He also turned in 23 punt returns for 255 yards and a touchdown. The 5-foot-8, 164-pound speedster has six return touchdowns for his career. That added dynamic should draw some interest from the NFL, but it would be unlikely he hears his name called until Day 3 at best. McKenzie said that he has not received feedback from the NFL Draft Advisory Committee as of yet.

Georgia junior RB Nick Chubb rushed for 142 rushing yards and a touchdown on 17 carries in the school's 31-23 bowl win over TCU.

Chubb already stated he would return to Georgia in 2017, citing Georgia Tech's recent confidence over the Bulldogs. If Chubb runs like he did in the second half, the Yello Jackets better watch out. Chubb produced 48 and 27 yard runs, featuring multiple broken tackles and a refusal to go down on first contact.

Georgia freshman WR Riley Ridley (leg) should be considered doubtful for Friday's Liberty Bowl showdown with TCU.

Ridley was sporting crutches in the team hotel on Thursday morning and at this juncture, it would be a surprise if the 6-foot-1, 198-pound true frosh can take the field for Friday's festivities. He is currently sitting on 12 catches for 238 yards and a pair of touchdowns.

Georgia redshirt junior LB Shaun McGee will transfer.

"Shaun is going to finish up with us but then he’s going to transfer out. He may have some academic issues depending on how his grades finish up," said HC Kirby Smart, who added that the 6-foot-3, 234-pound redshirt junior might not have been academically-eligible in the spring had he opted to stick with Georgia. McGee has been almost non-existent on the statistical level during his time with the Bulldogs. He has all of one career tackle to his name.

Georgia received a verbal commitment from four-star 2017 LB Nate McBride.

McBride committed to the Bulldogs over Auburn, Alabama and Oregon. He spoke highly of Oregon over the summer and took his only official visit to date with the Ducks, but ultimately, Georgia HC Kirby Smart reeled in the 6-foot-1, 221-pound home-state stud. There is a wide variance on his evaluation in the high school scouting community. While McBride ranks as Rivals' No. 53 overall prospect for the 2017 cycle, ESPN 300 doesn't check him into their master list until No. 198. The Worldwide Leader believes he "will need to add bulk and functional strength for the next level" and "[m]ay struggle to stick with receivers in man coverage."

Georgia fined TE coach/special-teams coordinator Shane Beamer $25,000 for accepting intel from former Wake Forest announcer Tommy Elrod.

Beamer -- the son of legendary former Hokies HC Frank Beamer -- is being fined for accepting intelligence from Elrod back in 2014, when he worked on Virginia Tech's coaching staff as a RB coach. "I realize I made a serious mistake in judgment by accepting the information and failing to notify officials at Virginia Tech of the communications." The ACC had previously fined Virginia Tech $25,000 for their role in the ongoing Tommy Elrod scandal.

ESPN's Craig Haubert wrote that Georgia five-star 2017 verbal T commit Isaiah Wilson "displays the physical tools to develop into an excellent Power 5 OL."

"In pass protection with his big body and arm length he can present a difficult obstacle to work around," Haubert notes, adding that Wilson is "capable of delivering a jolting punch and displays good feet and balance to stay in front of rushers when he gets hands on." The analyst compares the 6-foot-6, 325-pound tackle prospect to former Aggie and current Seahawks T Germain Ifedi due to his athleticism.
