Are you unsure if you're currently being recruited to play football at Georgia? Well, there's a relatively easy way to find out.

Have you received a hand-drawn portrait of yourself with a signed message from Mark Richt in the mail? No? Well then, I'm sorry, but you aren't Georgia football material. Don't take it personally, you're a 35-year old accountant. The fact of the matter is it's your fault for even thinking Georgia wanted you.

However, for those who are being considered, like four-star OT Chuma Edoga, Mark Richt and the Bulldogs are drawing them like one of their French girls.

“I’d say this (UGA portrait) is the most creative thing I’ve gotten in the mail so far,” Edoga told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “I thought it was pretty cool that they took time to do that (the drawing). And it was a pretty good drawing. I feel like it looks like me a little bit.”

Here's the portrait Edoga received.

He's not the only recruit to receive one, either. Recruits like Rashad Roundtree, D'Andre Walker and Roquan Smith have all tweeted their portraits in recent weeks.

I'm kind of jealous, honestly. I mean, I don't need a scholarship offer or anything, but if Mark Richt wants to send me one I'd totally never write about him being on the hot seat. Ever.
