    Gilbert obviously is fragile mentally....still...but physically seems to be acclimating. I truly hope he can become a "team player" as Smart indicated. Arik's problems obviously followed him from LSU. He is a rising star TE receiver....he could really help UGA win games...and likely will according to Smart.

    He seems to be coming along and that is great to hear. I hope he is getting much love and what he needs from his team mates and everyone around him and really hope he is enjoying himself and the ride much more now.

    Like the idea of AG playing ST especially preseason. ST reps on kick coverage are extra 50 yard sprints for a player that needs further conditioning if he is to to pull WR game reps later in the season.

    Please pray for him to get better in every way. He's come so far since he entered UGA and had a great Spring game. The sky is the limit for this talented young man. He's been the star of the team since he was in junior football. Now, he's on a team of stars.

    Know this AG from Marietta, great kid and family. Praying for him as @WCH notes would be what he needs from Dawgnation! Trust me he will pay it back 10 fold!
