2013 Dawg Night: Rundown

ATHENS – Ethan Burch gives Dawg Post readers a quick rundown of what happened at Dawg Night.

1. Dawg Night had one of, if not the largest turnouts in it’s history. That's a good thing because so many people want to compete, and it made for a lot of competition. However, finding the talent in such a deep sea of players is tough.

2. Weather wasn't pretty, but the show managed to go on... just a few hours later than planned. A severe storm drove players and coaches into the Butts-Mehre for a few hours, but play resumed around 8 p.m. After the delay, there was no lag time. Players were ready to go again and lasted well into the later parts of the night.

3. On to one of the more important aspects of Dawg Night - recruiting. The first commit of the night came from 2014 wideout Shakenneth Williams. Rumors had surfaced that Williams would commit at Dawg Night, but he told me that it was more of an "in the moment" thing. Williams broke the ice during the rain delay by telling Richt he wanted to be a Dawg. Williams credits his decision to his relationship with Georgia's coaching staff as well as how comfortable his mother feels sending him to Georgia.

4. Commitment number two came almost immediately after that from safety Kendall Gant. Gant, however, made his announcement via Twitter. Gant took to social media to tell Bulldog fans where he'd be spending his college years. He said he was committed to the G, as stated in a hashtag.

5. The final commitment, at least for the day, came from offensive tackle Dyshon Sims. Sims joined the committed crowd a little later, however, making his decision known after drills concluded. Sims' commitment wasn't too much of a shocker, but it did give the staff a reason to celebrate on the way out the doors.
