    I look forward to seeing what Ladd can do for us, I am hopeful that he can see the field this year. If it takes him a year to get ready, then that'll be good too.

    Similar frame to Phil McConkey who played for the Giants in the 80's. We need a dependable hands receiver in the slot that can pick up first downs and bust some big plays with speed and angles. Go Dawgs!

    I think Clemson has or had a guy comparable to Ladd who walked on their team and became a very good player for them. Clutch.

    He's a work in progress, probably a year before he's on the field. Keep working hard.

    McConkey should work into a decent receiver for UGA....over time. He really needs to get with the physical part of the game more, as he is a tad small but has those sticky hands and fleet feet....two musts to play well in the SEC. Can he take a hit at speed? I think UGA can build this toughness into him by next year. I wish him well.

    This young man was a surprise to me when he was offered by UGA but I trust our coaches to know what they are doing so I'm looking for great things from this young Ladd.
