Georgia Football Recruiting: 'Dawg Night' Gives Prospects Opportunity To Make Impression

College football prospects will have the chance to impress local colleges and be discovered this weekend at Georgia's football camp. Rico Johnson, a wide receiver from Swainsboro High School, committed on the spot to UGA after being offered at Mark Richt Camp.

Richt views this as an opportunity to really learn about a prospects work ethic:

"You do learn a lot about a kid at these camps, and how he'll compete," Richt said. "You know, there's going to be the Michael Bennetts of the world. He shows up, he kind of matches up with some of the best DB's on our recruiting board, and he has a field day, you know? It was like ‘This guy is a player, and we've got to get this guy.'

"So there's still some guys that will pop up and get on the radar that maybe didn't have an offer going into camp. But a lot of them have been offered by us already. Another thing, too, is that you just don't have upcoming seniors at these camps. You've got juniors and sophomores. You get to see a lot of you talent, too, that will allow you to put them on your recruiting board early."
