Georgia WR Terry Godwin caught four passes for 80 yards and two touchdowns for the East All-Stars in Saturday's 21-17 loss to the West All-Stars in the East-West Shrine Game.

While Godwin's squad did not come away with the win on Saturday, the 5-foot-10, 185-pound wideout very much looked the part of a prospect who has an NFL future ahead of him. Both of his touchdown grabs came in the third quarter to make a game of it after the West defense pitched a shutout in the first half. Looking beyond this game, The Draft Network's Joe Marino earlier tagged Godwin as the most consistent receiver during the Shrine practice week, while The Athletic's Dane Brugler loves him as a sleeper prospect. Our real question, now, is whether Godwin might be able to push toward a Day 2 selection. Stay tuned.

Georgia hired Florida DB coach Charlton Warren for the same position.

Kirby Smart was able to pull Warren away from the Gators after two seasons with the program. Before heading to Florida, Warren had success at Tennessee as a DB coach as well, and he's considered one of the best defensive back coaches in the country.

The Draft Network's Joe Marino called Georgia WR Terry Godwin one of the five biggest winners at East-West Shrine practices.

Marino called Godwin "the most consistent receiver all week" and noted his lack of size (5'10/185) didn't stop him from winning battles with corners. The Draft Network has been impressed with Godwin's natural ability, which includes plus route running skills. One of Godwin's biggest issues was a lack of production at Georgia. As a senior, Godwin only caught 23 passes for 385 yards and three touchdowns. That hasn't stopped The Athletic's Dane Brugler from calling Godwin "one of the biggest sleepers in the entire draft class."

Georgia signed TE coach Todd Hartley to a two-year contract.

Hartley will net $300,000 through June of 2020 and $400,000 through June of 2021. He landed on his feet at Georgia after being swept away from Miami's staff as part of HC Manny Diaz's full purge of the offensive coaching staff.

Georgia redshirt sophomore DB Tray Bishop entered his name into the NCAA transfer portal.

Bishop (6'3/210) signed with Georgia as a four-star "athlete" recruit in the 2017 class, but did not see the field in Athens during his lone active campaign in 2018 after taking a redshirt his first year on campus. He spent the entirety of the past season on Georgia's scout team. Bishop made unfortunate headlines last spring, when he was arrested for allegedly filming himself having sex with a UGA student without notifying her. As a redshirt sophomore, Bishop would have to sit out the 2019 campaign with a new team unless he drops out of the FBS altogether.

The Athletic's Dane Brugler called Georgia senior WR Terry Godwin "one of the biggest sleepers in the entire draft class."

That's certainly high praise for Godwin (5'11/185) who was underutilized at Georgia. Brugler continues to say that Godwin's speed could make him a difference-maker. Godwin received positive reviews at Monday's East-West Shrine Game practice, especially in one-on-one drills due to his speed and confidence. As a senior, Godwin posted a 20-340-3 receiving line, so calling Godwin underutilized would be an understatement.

Georgia hired former Miami TE coach Todd Hartley to serve in the same capacity.

Hartley was previously at Georgia with Mark Richt, but it was an off-field role. Richt brought him to Miami to coach tight ends and serve as a special teams coordinator, but was not retained by Manny Diaz when he was named Richt's replacement in December.

Georgia quarterbacks coach/co-offensive coordinator James Coley has been promoted to serve as the team's offensive coordinator.

Coley served as co-offensive coordinator with Jim Chaney, who left Georgia to become the new offensive coordinator at Tennessee. Having returned to Georgia to join HC Kirby Smart's staff in 2016, Coley has also coached the wide receivers during his second stint in Athens. In 2019 he'll preside over an offense led by QB Jake Fromm, RB D'Andre Swift and what should be one of the best offensive lines in college football.

Georgia redshirt junior S J.R. Reed will return to school for the 2019 season.

Reed (6'1/194) closed the 2018 season having logged 66 tackles (2.0 for loss), a sack, two interceptions and a pair of passes defended across 14 games played. He has picked off two passes in each of the past two campaigns. Georgia could have a monster team next year, with a sprinkling of veterans like Reed coming back, a seasoned quarterback in Jake Fromm and all those young pups from UGA's monster 2018 recruiting class a year into their development.

Georgia redshirt junior K Rodrigo Blankenship will return to school for the 2019 season.

Blankenship will be back for one more run with the Bulldogs as he tries to help secure the title which UGA came oh-so-close to last January. The bespectacled redshirt junior went 19-of-23 on his boots this season, plus a perfect 65-of-65 on extra points.

Bleacher Report's Tyler Brooke gave Georgia five-star 2019 signing Dominick Blaylock an A-plus grade for his work on Saturday in the U.S. Army All-American Game.

There were two plays who got an A-plus grade from Brooke: Future Wisconsin quarterback Graham Mertz -- who threw for five touchdowns and was named the game's MVP -- and Blaylock, who scored two of those touchdowns. "Blaylock showed out and impressed Georgia fans by scoring the first two touchdowns of the game, and then threw for his third TD on a trick play," writes Brooke. "He showed some nice breakaway speed and playmaking ability, and Fromm is hoping that he'll be an immediate contributor next season."

Redshirt junior LS Steven Nixon has transferred from Mercer to Georgia.

Georgia is losing long snapper Nick Moore to graduation, so Nixon (5'11/223) will have a chance to win the starting job. He snapped for 32 straight games for Mercer, so he has the experience, and Georgia must have liked what they saw in his accuracy and velocity to allow him to join the program.
Jan 5 - 4:09 PM

Georgia received a verbal commitment from four-star 2019 CB Tyrique Stevenson during the U.S. Army All-American Bowl on Saturday.

Stevenson chose the Bulldogs over Miami and Florida, although the third hat was likely just for show; this was always going to come down to Georgia and the Hurricanes. The 6-foot-2, 200-pounder is a physical cornerback who was rated the 37th best corner in this class. He could be a candidate to play immediately for the Bulldogs.

Georgia junior RB Elijah Holyfield declared for the 2019 NFL Draft.

Holyfield (5'11/215) is a gifted athlete who will enter the NFL with not a lot of mileage on his body. In his three-year career at Georgia, Holyfield averaged 6.2 yards on only 215 carries. Most of that volume came this season when he posted a 159-1,018-7 rushing line (6.4 YPC). Only used as a pure runner at Georgia, Holyfield is likely destined for a run-first role in the NFL, but let's see what the former four-star recruit can do at the NFL Combine first.
Jan 4 - 6:06 PM

Georgia junior WR Mecole Hardman declared for the 2019 NFL Draft.

We expected plenty of Georgia players to declare for the draft after the Sugar Bowl, and we weren't wrong. Hardman (5'11/183) joins fellow Bulldog Riley Ridley in declaring early, and Georgia also loses tight end Isaac Nauta in the same capacity. Hardman caught 35 passes for 543 yards, and he also scored seven touchdowns for the 11-3 Bulldogs. Testing will be important for Hardman -- testing is important for every player -- but his ability to work from the slot and operate in the red zone should see him as a Day 3 selection at this point.
