    When you’re hot, you’re hot, and right now a scorching Kirby Smart is looking to ride the recruiting wave.

    One week after flipping two recruits from Alabama, UGA has offered a scholarship to Asante Samuel Jr., a 4-star cornerback in the 2018 class.

    Samuel was so stoked to receive the offer, he tweeted it out.

    If the name sounds familiar, which it should, that’s because Asante Samuel Sr. played 11 seasons in the NFL for the New England Patriots, Philadelphia Eagles and Atlanta Falcons. He was a fourth-round pick out of Central Florida in the 2003 NFL Draft.

    Five of UGA’s 12 defensive backs are upperclassmen, and considering the Bulldogs only signed two cornerbacks in their 2016 class, there might be some early playing time for Samuel if he were to head to Athens, Ga.
