Four-star G Trey Hill announced his verbal commitment to play at Georgia Monday.

Hill (6'4/346) chose to attend Georgia over Auburn, Florida and Florida State. He's ranked the top guard prospect in the country by ESPN, and second by 247 Sports. He clearly has the size to be a powerful run blocker, but scouting reports also dictate that he's a capable pass blocker and offers a "strong punch." He's another impressive commit for one of the top classes in the country.

ESPN's Gerry Hamilton passes along Georgia five-star 2018 verbal QB commit Justin Fields has had "positive conversations" with Texas A&M and Florida.

The Aggies and Gators are hoping that their new coaches in Jimbo Fisher and Dan Mullen might be able to sway Fields off his pledge. Writes Hamilton, "The message is simple, come to Gainesville or College Station and have a terrific opportunity to start as a true freshman or go to Georgia and compete with entrenched freshman starter Jacob Fromm." This is exactly the kind of pitch we would spin, too. Georgia simply isn't a smooth landing spot for the stud dual-threat gunslinger. Hamilton still believes he will ultimately stick with Georgia, despite his wandering eye.

Georgia junior DT Trenton Thompson (knee) hinted that he will return to school for his senior season.

While this is far from scientific evidence, Thornton posted on his instagram that he was "looking ahead" while including hashtags #UGA19 and #Seniorsoon. The six-foot-four, 307-pound defensive lineman has battled knee issues for most of 2017, but had one of his best games of the season against Georgia Tech. A healthy return would be a major boon for the Bulldogs' defense in 2018.

Uncommitted four-star 218 G Trey Hill will announce his pledge on Dec. 11.

Hill (6'4/325) will be deciding between Auburn, Florida, Florida State and Georgia come Monday. Coaches from the Tigers, Seminoles and Bulldogs have all visited him over the past week to make their final pitches for Rivals' No. 73 overall prospect in the class. He'll be inking up on the dotted line come Dec. 20, the first day of the new early signing period. 247Sports notes that the Warner Robins, Georgia, native "can really bend for his size" and "moves well." He's a mauler in the trenches, but the outlet notes that he'll need to watch his weight over the course of his collegiate career.

Georgia junior LB Roquan Smith was awarded the Butkus Award on Thursday.

Smith has been one of the best interior linebackers in the country all year, and it's no surprise that he's taking this award home for, you guessed it, best overall linebacker. The junior finished his regular season with 5.5 sacks, 10.5 tackles for loss, and an impressive 113 tackles overall. He gets to take on the impressive Oklahoma offense in the playoffs next, and another strong showing there may solidify him as the top inside linebacker prospect in the country -- assuming he forgoes his senior season.

Georgia WR coach James Coley is expected to remain with the program after seeing interest from Texas A&M.

The Aggies were angling for Coley to come on as their offensive coordinator. According to Seth Emerson of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, he'll likely be in for a raise with the Bulldogs, now. Coley initially joined HC Kirby Smart's staff in the winter of 2016, during the opening months of Smart's tenure as head coach.

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline writes that since moving to left tackle before the start of the season, Georgia senior T Isaiah Wynn's draft stock is now "surging."

"He was terrific during the Bulldogs victory over Auburn in the SEC title game," Pauline notes, "springing ball carriers free for several long runs while helping keep his quarterback upright just about the entire game." The analyst does not see the 6-foot-2, 302-pound Wynn sticking at left tackle when he hits the pro ranks in the spring, but refers to him as a "solid mid-round pick" who could develop into a rock-solid backup and occasional spot starter in the NFL.

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline wrote that he was "surprised" to hear several area scouts grade Georgia senior RB Sony Michel as a better draft prospect that Georgia senior RB Nick Chubb.

"They believe Michel’s game projects better to the next level compared to Chubb’s and that both will end up in the draft’s second round," Pauline writes. Don't count the analyst in this boat -- he not only views Chubb as a better prospect than Michel, he believes that the 5-foot-10, 228-pounder will be drafted on Day 1 come the spring. Chubb has rushed for at least 1,000 yards in three of his four seasons. He probably would have made it 4-for-4 had he not suffered a serious season-ending knee injury in the autumn of 2015.
Dec 6 - 5:08 PM

SEC Country's Zach Abolverdi reports that Florida HC Dan Mullen "feels that he has a shot" to flip Georgia five-star 2018 QB Justin Fields.

Mullen paid Fields an in-home visit last Tuesday as he looks to find some wiggle room with the star quarterback recruit. The 6-foot-3, 221-pounder is one of the most promising dual-threat recruits we've seen over the past five or six years. Rivals ranks him as the No. 2 overall prospect in the 2018 class. It's not beyond the pale that Fields would seriously be considering Florida -- Georgia already has two former five-star quarterbacks on roster in Jake Fromm and Jacob Eason, whereas in Gainesville, the dual-threat gunslinger would have a far more open path to playing time.

In the latest release of their top 250 players in the 2018 cycle, Rivals upgraded Georgia four-star verbal DE commit Adam Anderson to a five-star grade.

Anderson (6'6/225) had been ranked as the outlet's No. 74 overall prospect, but saw a major seat upgrade in this latest release. He's up to No. 13, now. A native of Rome, Georgia, Anderson has drawn comparisons to LSU's Arden Key.

Georgia DC Mel Tucker will interview with Tennessee AD Phillip Fulmer for a second time on Tuesday.

The meeting will take place in New York. Tucker has enjoyed a long and successful coaching career in both the NFL and in college. He's a former defensive coordinator of the Chicago Bears, Jacksonville Jaguars and Cleveland Browns, and was the Jags' interim HC for the final five games of the 2011 season. Tucker helped Alabama win a national championship in 2015 before heading to Georgia along with Kirby Smart. This year, Georgia ranks in the top-5 in the FBS in scoring defense (13.2 points) and total defense (270.9 yards). That work has made Tucker a semifinalist for the Broyles Award, given to college football's top assistant coach. The Vols are reportedly also considering SMU HC Chad Morris, Auburn DC Kevin Steele and Clemson DC Brent Venables.

NFL Draft Scout's Rob Rang came away impressed with Georgia junior LB Roquan Smith after his performance against Auburn in the SEC Championship.

Smith was everywhere against the Tigers, recovering two fumbles, picking up ten solo tackles and a sack in the 28-7 victory. Rang says that Smith showed impressive speed and recognition during the game, and the 6-foot-1, 225-pound linebacker is also a sound tackler. An inside linebacker has to show a high ceiling along with a high floor to be drafted high, and Smith might offer both.
Dec 4 - 7:44 PM

Georgia senior RB Sony Michel received his MRI results and is expected to be available for the Rose Bowl, according to beat writer Seth Emerson.

"He should be good to go," Kirby Smart said about Michel's knee injury. Michel and Nick Chubb will be vital if Ohio State wants to top Oklahoma in the opening round of the College Football Playoff. Michel has found the end zone 13 times this season.

Georgia junior LB Natrez Patrick and junior WR Jayson Stanley were arrested on DUI and marijuana charges on Sunday morning.

Apparently a little too much celebration for this pair of Bulldogs. Patrick, a passenger with Stanley driving, has only been charged with misdemeanor marijuana possession, but he could be in for something of a real punishment. This was his third arrest with the team and his second this season, as he had previously been cited on a misdemeanor marijuana charge in early October. That arrest led to a four-game suspension. We're still awaiting word from Georgia on these arrests.

Georgia junior WR Jayson Stanley and junior LB Natrez Patrick were arrested on DUI and marijuana charges early Sunday morning.

Stanley was driving the vehicle, with Patrick riding as a passenger. He was hit with DUI, misdemeanor marijuana possession and speeding charges while Patrick was slapped with a misdemeanor marijuana possession charge. Georgia has yet to announce disciplinary measures for the pair.
