Bulldogs hit recruiting trail with eyes on Texas’ talent

While Georgia’s players are getting a chance to regroup halfway through the season and get reenergized for the games to come, coaches will be mixing in recruiting this week along with practices.

Recruiting coordinator Rodney Garner said assistants would be on the road this week Monday, Friday and Saturday.

That includes plans for stops at junior colleges, with receivers coach Tony Ball going today and Garner on Saturday.

Georgia has switched up some of its recruiting areas among its assistants and will be going more into Texas now that Texas A&M is in the Southeastern Conference.

“We want to be able to go throw a hook in the water and see if we can get a little nibble,” Garner said.

Georgia, of course, landed quarterback Matthew Stafford from Dallas.

Garner recruited defensive lineman Dale Dixson from that area.

Texas produced the second most players on NFL rosters on opening weekend, according to USA Football, with 200, seven behind California. Florida was third with 189 and Georgia was fourth with 92.
