    Wonder if him deciding to play and greedy deciding to sit had any say in the vote

    Came in without a high rating, earned his spot, made the most of it. DGD for sure. Thanks t DB for his effort the last 4 years. Looking forward to seeing him prosper on the next level.

    Can’t help but think of the audio BA played today where Coach Tucker talked about his advice to Deandre. Sounds like Bake listened, and it’s paying off now. Literally and figuratively. Go Dawgs!

    28 games... just crazy to think about

    Glad the nickname guy didn’t win because of his nickname.

    That’s what happens when you don’t share...

    Let me tell you the story of a 3-star kid who committed to the G... Now he's the best defensive back in college football! B)

    Congratulations to DGDeAndre Baker!

    And he decided to play in the Sugar Bowl. “Don’t want to end my college career with a loss”. Definition of a winner. Lloyd’s of London has him covered.

    I remember when Baker came in and relived Juwaun Briscoe of his starting duties in the Missouri game...Has never looks backed since..My favorite play of Baker is when he rocked Jalen Hurd for the fumble recovery ...

    This kid earned this award without a doubt. He is 1 of the best CB that I have seen in a while & I'm proud is a DGD. Very Bright Future & Best Of Luck Mr. Baker #18

  • UgaXforPresidentUgaXforPresident Posts: 127 ✭✭✭ Junior

    Has not given up a TD since the Obama administration. That's a fun stat right there.

  • jay_kubzzjay_kubzz Posts: 554 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    It shouldn’t have even been close between him and Williams. Deandre Baker is superior to Williams by a large margin IMO.

    Greedy may get drafted earlier due to size. He is quite a big taller than DB, maybe 2 or 3 inches if I'm not mistaken. I am thrilled for DB winning this award. Hasn't given up a TD since he was a sophomore.

  • Steve_ZissouSteve_Zissou Posts: 192 ✭✭✭ Junior

    No touchdown since TCU?
    That’s a crazy stat. Gonna need some verification on this

    Congrats to Baker. UGA staff did an incredible job developing him. Hope Pruitt can find more diamonds in the rough like this stud.
