    yawn?

    This helps with depth but only 4 games played in two years?

    What happened to him?

    His field vision and situational awareness are (at least on the tape) exceptional. I don't care about his receiver tape - he's a DB all day. Mostly, I'm impressed with his game IQ. All to be determined but I don't think he's a safety. Sorry Alabama. This player is a corner. I'd like to see him ALWAYS player with less cushion (but same is true of UGA across the board - not sure where Kirby learned that) but when he closes. he's decisive and very quick.

    I like it. We'll wee how it turns out. But I have a feeling he was in the wrong position group (sorry Nick - you're not perfect).

    Alabama liked him now Georgia likes him. I'd say that he is in a very small group of players that elite programs want on their team! Welcome!!!

    This is a win for both the player and Kirby. For Kirby it addresses a position of need For the player he moves up the depth chart. Since much of what Kirby does on defense is copied from Saban the transition should not be too difficult. I see him making a positive contribution.

    I like the Positive comments I’ve read here about this young man. I hope the 6’1” is accurate or even taller would be even better. I love CB’s that are tall but pretty fast and very athletic !! Welcome to Dawg Nation !! Go Dawgs !!

    He has very good open field speed. Good height, athleticism. Should contribute fairly quickly at UGA. I say, Bama's loss.

    He had 2 years of going up against 4+ 1st rd WR's in practice every day. Invaluable experience equivalent to an advanced degree in DB.

    I do think he will contribute. I do not see this as a Bama loss. Their defensive secondary is stacked for this season and next. They do a better job in developing secondary players than Kirby.
