Some of the state’s top prospects are expected to show up for UGA’s Junior Day on Saturday. Junior Days are massive gatherings of underclassmen on a college campus for unofficial visits.
Mark Richt talked to the AJC about the importance of Junior Day on Friday:
“You just hope to get some young men on your campus to get to know you better – and it’s for us to get to know them better,” Richt said. “Sometimes, there are offers to be made. Sometimes, there are already guys with offers from us that come onto campus.
“But mostly, we know the more we get them on the campus, the better chance have to build that relationship, which matters the most in the end.”
UGA has five commitments for its 2016 class, including a pair of 5-stars in quarterback Jacob Eason and offensive lineman Ben Cleveland.
