Top Recruits Are Extremely Excited About Georgia's Upcoming "Freshman Day"

Junior days are pretty standard recruiting events for most football programs now. Coaches will invite dozens of local junior recruits to unofficially visit around the same time, and will often pick up some verbal commitments. Georgia is kicking things up a notch. Kirby Smart and his staff will host a "freshman day" on Saturday for really young recruits from the talent-rich Peach State, and some of those top recruits are very excited for it.

According to DawgNation, the state's top 50 freshmen are invited, including Owen Pappoe, who will be in contention to be the nation's top 2019 recruit. With a new staff in place, Georgia has some work to do to really forge connections with the home-state players. This is a pretty genius way to do it.
