Tim Keenan - 4 Star DT Announcing End of August
Just posting this here. Did a search and didn’t see a thread on it. He dropped a top 5 over the weekend of Bama, LSU, UGA, GT and UAB(?). He will announce at the end of August.

That's an interesting combination of schools. How is GT feeling about him? Are you confident?

His Top 5 is really a Top 2 of Georgia Tech and UAB.

Not sure. I think we feel ok. Rivals guys think it’s most likely a UGA/GT battle. They think he is lower on Bama/LSU board. May have waited too late for Bama.

Getting a quality DT at GT has been extremely difficult. So if somehow we landed him it would be certainly welcomed. We have all of our “A team” recruiters on staff for Tim. Led by Coach Collins so if we miss it won’t be for lack of effort.

I’m curious about where he might be on UGAs board? I don’t think he is a take right now at Bama/LSU. And I don’t think UAB is serious. That was his first offer so I think he is throwing them a bone.

I've haven't heard his name pop up for UGA but that doesn't mean it's not the case.

I think they just deduced it. They are pretty certain he isn’t a take for Bama or LSU and UGA has been quiet on him so they assume UGA and GT are in the battle. UGA May well not be but it isn’t clear.

I am not sure where he is on our board. I haven't heard a whole lot about him, but I have seen his name mentioned a couple of times.

You guys are really recruiting at a higher level now that Johnson is gone. I think he was mainly recruiting to his offensive scheme (which is actually smart) more so than for traditional talent. I really liked the RB you guys picked up last year....Jahmyr Gibbs. I think he'll be really good.

I've seen his name in the newsletter that comes out, but not mentioned a whole lot. The newsletter has been spotty lately since Covid. Not sure if you subscribe to it, or not.

Certainly are trending up. I think we are at 22 right now on Rivals. Long way to go but Collins May be able to do two top 25 classes in a row which at GT given the rebuild is great. So not only did the system turn better talent away but watching Geoff, Tashard Choice, Brent Key, Marco Coleman etc recruit has let me know that previous staff was also just lazy

Recruiting is one of those things that goes on all the time. I don't know how they do it. I mean, they touch base with every recruit several times a week (and with the very top recruits, sometimes every day) and then they do it a year or more down the road. Right now they are in contact with recruits for the 2022, and 2023 classes. It's a wonder more coaches don't get burned out.

We just got a newsletter out and Keene was mentioned in it. Apparently he is a big target for us.

There is a guy that grabs free content from several Georgia writers and puts them all into a newsletter form and e-mails it out to people who ask to be included. A lot of it is repeated stuff, obviously, but it's pretty interesting and gives a pretty good snapshot to what is going on with recruiting.

It has been a bit uneven since Covid hit, so that is why I was unaware of how hard we were pursuing Keenan. Apparently we would love to have him, though.

As time draws closer I am seeing more and more talk. We always need DLinemen. Hoping we get him, but who knows really.

Now it looks like Bama will take him and Bama is now the favorite.

He must not be going to UGA then

But seriously, what do they have to grade on to drop any player at this time.

Nothing.

One of the UGA podcasts said that Bama doesnt have room for Keenan but this could be a play to keep him out of Athens.
