Kirby has three commitments from Florida one from Texas and one from Pennsylvania where Charley Trippi is from. Kirby has done well in Georgia ? Kirby has done unbelievably great all over this great Nation with MORE to come !
Nick Chubb’s last year is this year 2016-2017 season.
Mark Richt mostly wasted Sony Michel 2014 but this is his last year too if he wants to see how highly he might be drafted in the NFL too.
So this is MAJOR NEWS that Kirby now has his running backs for 2017 all lined-up now. Fantastic. Toneil Carter Jr. and D’Andre Swift 1st class assuring The Long-Standing Tradition of The University of Ground Attack : UGA.
D’Andre Swift is ranked the # 3 best running back in the nation by Rivals and # 4 by Scout.com. Rivals ranks D’Andre Swift the overall best # 38 in the nation player this year and Scout.com # 33 best nationally any position.
St. Joseph’s Prep School’s D’Andre Swift is fast and physical and catches the ball extremely well. Kirby will play him game 1 next season and game number 2 next year which will be The Georgia Bulldogs vs. Notre Dame at South Bend Indiana in front of Touchdown Jesus September 9 next year. D’Andre Swift is considered the number 1 running back in South Bend Indiana. This is a major score for Kirby.
Kirby has been relentless in recruiting for The Georgia Bulldogs. As good as Mark Richt was in recruiting, Kirby has ben a LOT better. Kirby has kicked Mark Richt’s ass in recruiting last year and now this year too. This just the latest example. Thank you D’Andre Swift ! We appreciate you wanting to play for us and your commitment is one we hold dear to our hearts sir.
Kirby is # 2 in recruiting rankings for 2017 in number of Top 100 players committed so far with 7 and # 2 in avg ranking of his recruiting according to Scout.com today. Only Ohio State has more Top 100 and is the only one who has a higher avg recruit. Why is this important ? Because you only get 85 Scholarships and if you waste them on marginal players your team is weaker and lacks the talent on the 2-Deep as it was when Kirby took over.
vols play tonight SEC Network vs Appalachian State.
D’Andre Swift 214 lbs. running back from Philadelphia was coveted by Alabama Clemson FSU LSU Ohio State Michigan Michigan State vols Oklahoma Penn State Auburn and Miami of Florida’s Mark Richt.
Kirby got his commitment 2 days’ prior to Kick-Off vs # 20 North Carolina who gets to see 2 QB play one who can and will throw the ball down the field and one who NEVER has nor can run nor even hold onto the ball.
North Carolina is appreciative that they won’t face the one who can and will throw the ball all the time they don’t and most clearly get to game plan now for stacking the box against the one who has done NOTHING but to refuse to even try to throw the ball down the field.
Play him the whole God Damn Game North Carolina exclaims to all the world. It makes our defense better as you are MORE predicable. A LOT more predictable based on what he’s shown to-date which is NOT damn much.

This is finest recruiting class The University of Georgia has ever had. This blows away Mark Richt’s Dream Team whose last remnants left here after last year and who since it included Kolton Houston who left after last season too combined had 24 losses the last 6 years.
These guys will NEVER average 4 losses a year here with Kirby. NEVER. Not for 6 years or 8 years as Mark Richt before we had to fire him and hire Kirby to bring us all this talent and I do mean bring us all this talent. Talent which NEVER comes here for Mark Richt.
