This is a simple question to what may be a broad answer but in general, we see dawg fans all over the place [not as much here but some and especially in conversation and "other" message boards] constantly complaining about Georgia "not locking down the borders".
I'm not here to argue that we aren't "locking down the border" as much as we used to but considering the CRAZY shift in technology, communication, affordable travel from say the 1980s, how much of kids leaving the State of Georgia and UGA targeting [and having pretty darn good success] going after high profile kids from outside of Georgia can be attributed simply to more people getting more places and communicating with more people easier???
In the 1980s, for example, a recruiting budget was best spent on gas and sticking around local areas. Now, we've got social media for our coaches to initiate contact with someone in say Indiana. And, it is not that expensive [in perspective] to send a coach on a private jet up there to see him.
Maybe Alabama and LSU do a bit better job of "locking down" than we do but those folks are crazy as hell over there in those places anyway. Just a thought. Not looking to stir trouble just thought it would make for a good discussion.
TIA as always.

With so many kids moving in this state, it will never be the way it was in the 80's and 90's
Just for example in last 2 classes
Robert Nkediche -Move in
Tyren Jones- Move in
Brice Ramsey-Move it
Devondre Seymour-Move in
Vonn Bell- Move in
Malkom Parrish- Move in
That is kind of exactly what I was getting at. Folks complaining about "closing the borders" might want to read a magazine. I can go with it somewhat in smaller, rural Georgia. But in Atlanta? Gimme a break.
The results speak for themselves. More than one way to skin a cat.
There are no borders in Georgia.
Just about agree with this, South Georgia still a strong UGA hold for right now
