    Hate to lose a kid of his talent, but dang! The fact that his parents enabled this degree of vacillation is puzzling. If they wanted him “join the family business” they should have just started with that. Still got a stud coming in, in Ryan P, so not worried. This just irks me that he was so invested (supposedly) and did a lot of recruiting, only to leave before he got it off the ground. I hate when people say this kind of thing because it is usually just sour grapes, and disingenuous, but maybe we did actually dodge a bullet there and it’s a good thing he went somewhere else. Maybe he just wanted those $$$

    Everybody will try & read too much in to this beyond the fact that another teenager is just being a teenager. To think our universities are committing to pay these kids millions. With Beck, Gunner & quite possibly a better QB in Puglisi, the Dawgs will be fine. I’m just glad he made his mind up now rather than next Dec. Go Dawgs

    Glad the drama about this fickle kid is over and done. How he came to Athens and said and did all the right things meant nothing. Carson coming back is better.

    I guess he just ain't ready to play BIG BOY football....enjoy the Junior League Dylan.

    And in the expanded, divisionless Big 10, he’ll never win anything that matters. There are far too many big powers to win much. But whatever, do what you want kid.

    I definitely agree that it's better to have never had him, than to have him up and want to transfer a year from now before we ever got to see what he could do. Because if he had done that, he would have run off other potential QB candidates in the 2025 and 2026 classes who would have been thinking, "I've got to deal with both him AND Puglisi? No thanks. I'll look elsewhere." Now we're free. I will NOT be one of those who declares that Puglisi is better than Raiola, however, just because Raiola spurned us. There's a reason why they were ranked the way they were. But I believe that we aren't stepping down that much with Puglisi, if at all, and if we get other talented players around him, he should be just fine. But Puglisi is guaranteed to get the biggest cheer of all at the G-Day game next year. lol

    So, wished he wanted to come to Georgia, but he’s probably better off at Nebraska. And, there really is no difference in him coming for one year (or two), and then transferring, and flipping before he ever comes. Can’t be too upset, colleges also move on from players. The rules are the same.

    Saw this coming from a mile away. Had commitment issues in high school and now college (Ohio State, UGA, Nebraska). Not a big deal. We have plenty of QB talent. Maybe Kirby can get Nebraska on our schedule for 2025. Let’s go Dawgs!!!

    He went to 4 high schools all I can say is BYE

  • Jonanthony1Jonanthony1 Posts: 1 ✭ Freshman

    So he lost with Buford and now can go a school of yesteryear while Kirby will continue to field the top CFB teams for years to come.

    He talks like he's been in love with Nebraska from day one. What a load of BS. Either his dad influenced the flip or money did. Or maybe he was just afraid of playing in the tough SEC. Good bye and good riddance. We'll be just fine without you.

    Not concerned with him, more so will he try and lure any of our other premier recruits. If we can get a few portal position players and develop our young guns another year, I don’t think this flip hurts us at all.

    Great point when you so accurately point out how his parents “enabled this degree of vacillation.” When my sons were being recruited to play college basketball I told them, “Once you tell a coach you are going to play for that school you will not be able to change your mind. Once you give your word, you will keep it.” Kids do what they’re taught by their parents. I honestly believe we did dodge a bullet. The character of your players is a huge factor. Dylan has showed us that there are serious character issues with him. I’m sure the coaches at the four high schools might have some insight.

    I think it appropriate to add that Dylan is the product of his raising. I don’t blame him. I think his parents, especially his dad, are the problem. When you see kids with no sense of honor and integrity it is usually, not always, the product of their parents’ values.
