    No, he was never going to start at UGA.

    Yes, he has the talent to start and develop into an NFL prospect at a ton of other schools.

    Never’s a big word, man. It’s not for nothing that he was allowed to start a year early, though it’s not unlikely that that same youth and the size that doesn’t come with it is part of what kept him from seeing too much of the field. He only had a year of development, so he wasn’t going to be jumping anyone, but to say never is rarely a wise or fair move. I watched him play many a Friday (I teach at GTHS), and the kid is dang good (there’s good reason Kirby showed up in the ‘copter during his recruitment); but one year in, and early, isn’t going to get you ahead of the dudes that were and are currently on the field.

    Thankfully that scholarship spot wasn't necessary last season. Had UGA experienced multiple injuries at a single spot or the young players not panned out at ILB, that spot could have been needed by a transfer player that would have been impactful on the run to a repeat championship. Luck is definitely a part of winning championships. (see missed FG at the **** of midnight)

    Obviously a good player with a potentially bright future. The way UGA recruits it is an uphill battle for any player to carve out a starting role. (see Bear) Being that young and that far down the depth chart could've been too discouraging for a young player to logically justify gutting it out.

    UGADad, I beg to differ..... "Luck is definitely a part of winning championships. (see missed FG at the **** of midnight)".....Elite TEAMS, ELITE coaches rise to the occasion. Luck has absolutely nothing to do with it....for three quarters TOS averaged 12.6 points against UGA and held our offense to an average of 8 points. Starting with the KS time out, our resurgence in the fourth quarter held TOS to 3 points and our offense increased our production by 10 points scoring 18. The DAWGS rose to the occasion by great coaching, perseverance and elite play....depending on luck religates a teams chance of a win to a 50/50 flip of the coin.
