Mark Richt Sending UGA Football Recruits Hand-Drawn, Autographed Portraits

Mark Richt and the Georgia Bulldogs are getting creative with their recruiting material for the 2015 class. Several top recruits have reported receiving portraits of themselves autographed by Richt.

The portraits appear to be hand-drawn by a currently unknown artist. Each portrait features the recruit with half their high school football jersey and half with a UGA football jersey along with a personal note from Mark Richt.

This is a very unique idea that has caught the attention of several news outlets, including CBSSports, ESPN, For The Win, Bleacher Report, SB Nation, and more.

Since the portraits seem to be trickling out one-by-one, we will now post each one here.
