    "One week later, Etienne entered the portal and talk turned to how he wanted to play in a championship program while stile close to family in the Southeast Region.".....seems like a simple decision to me....either The Dawgs or The Tide.....maybe go back to the Bayou and LSU....guess it boils down to who Trevor thinks has the best chance at winning the SECC in 2024 and progressing as #1 to the play offs so that narrows it down to either The Dawgs or The Tide.....The Dawgs lose two "feature backs" but have a stout RB room with little experience....Trevor would get starting opportunity. At Bama, similar situation.......regrettably, I suppose it comes to which organization can pony up the best NIL......given that, I'll stick with the studs in our RB room......after all, they have already put in the commitment and work becoming DGD's!

    A nice piece of information for someone to put in a story like this would be where UGA stands vs the 85 number. Expect more players to hit the TP before it closes. But don't expect UGA to add many more from the TP.

    UGA does not seem to have a 3rd OT ready for SEC play. Should TRatt surprisingly come back he could move to starting RT. After 71, 56, 55, 53 and 57 there seems to be no experienced, proven OL.

    I suppose normal portal shopping buys you some time for younger guys to develop. Nice to see we are also getting a couple of start worthy guys who have more than one year left.

    @GtheGreek i tried to drop the hint

    @UGADad20 that number is fluid … too fluid to matter

    a kid could go off scholarship and get reimbursed

    scholly limits dont matter anymore

    Excellent transfer moves by Kirby. We need all the talented beef that we can get to survive the gauntlet of a schedule next season.

    In other news, Ole Miss just grabbing former 5-star Aggie DL Walter Nolen from the portal. Nolen was considered the top player available in the transfer portal and chose Ole Miss over Oregon, joining the Rebels’ No. 1-ranked transfer class. The Rebels have gotten12 players now from the TP - mostly guys on defense. Their schedule is reasonably mild next season (toughest opponents are GA, OK, and LSU), and I wouldn't be surprised if they get into the playoffs.

    @MikeGriffith

    What's the actual known numbers of seniors graduating? Nfl draft-eligible juniors? And how many who very likely will be gone, as it pertains to the 85 limit. Just wondering how many more have to transfer out before next fall.
