Is there any chance of us getting back in the mix w/ Preston Williams? Or any WRs that are 6'2" or over and could contribute as a freshman?

(Also: does anyone know whatever happened to Akia Booker?)

So we look to be pretty loaded on defense next year and should stay that way for a few years.
What are we looking like on offense next year? Any freshman who can contribute early?

no for Preston Williams....not any other quality WR out there now unless something happens very unusual.

Booker was a grades issue....

too early to say......a lot of holes at WR, OL, QB, RB......we could lose 7-8 from this year's offense.

Thanks, b. I I just long for the Rice/Alshon mold of a big time game changer (as we all do). Roland has the potential but heretofore hasn't delivered on it (and isn't as tall as either of those guys were). I know Googer has the size but obviously he's primed for a redshirt. Would seem as though, w/ our recent history of WRs in the NFL (Sidney, Alshon, Ace, Bruce) we'd be able to recruit a 4-5 star game changer.

I ask about Booker because saw him play a few times (on TV and in person) and he was electric. Shame he couldn't get the grades right. Didn't know where he ended up (if anywhere).

I guess everyone knows DJ Jones is taking an official this weekend in Columbia.
I read something earlier today that FSU (currently committed) thinks Jones could be a 1 and done guy. Apparently, he's one of those rare JUCO's that played there 2 years, then plays 1 year in D-1 and goes pro......that's how good FSU thinks he is.

I see alot of names on that list that are already verbal commits for our program. I'm guessing these are guys that we would like to solidify position with to a further extent or bring them along to help recruit others? Smart gameplan.

It's really important that we beat UGA especially with all of these prospects coming from the state of GA.

I'd say it's really important that we at least make it respectable. If we get blown out and the crowd leaves by half, then it's certainly a horrible impression on these guys. I think most of them are more excited to see the stadium and our fans and the energy, vs just the results of the game.

How many years did we beat UGA with big GA visitors there and they still went to UGA? I don't think the game matters as much as we think.

WR Darius Slayton who is on that list is a big-time talent, with some size and great speed. Sounds like he's a heavy Georgia lean, but will be interesting to see his interest level after this weekend. He's rated somewhere in the top 100-150 players in the country.
