From David ChingInsider: Among the observations from Georgia’s G-Day was an offense that didn’t quite click and a defense that has found some young and ready contributors.

From Radi NabulsiInsider: G-Day brought some big-name recruits to Athens and the Bulldogs made the most of it.


From Michael DiRoccoInsider: Among the observations from Florida’s Orange & Blue game was the emergence of several young stars in the making.

From Derek TysonInsider: Capped by the addition of running back Dalvin Cook, the Gators’ spring game weekend turned into a successful recruiting outing.


From Gary Laney: Senior linebacker Lamin Barrow is taking on an increased role on the field and as a leader with the departure of Kevin Minter.

More from LaneyInsider: With the Tigers losing at least two linebackers following the 2013 season, they are placing an emphasis on recruiting the position.


From Sam Khan Jr.Insider: Even though he's already committed to Alabama, Texas and Texas A&M are charging hard after 2015 safety Deionte Thompson.


From Alex Scarborough: Alabama’s offense was pretty successful last season despite missing some big-play receivers. Now that DeAndrew White, Chris Black and Kenny Bell are back from injuries, the Tide’s offense could be even more explosive.

More from Scarborough: Nick Saban wasn’t impressed with the effort at the Tide’s first spring scrimmage.

From Greg Ostendorf: With Mekhi Brown, Alabama added another member to the 2015 recruiting class.
