I love our coaches and they can tear it up on the recruiting trail but there is no way this kid should not have an offer from the in-state school but he has offers from the likes of Urban Meyer and Nick Saban. It's already hard enough to keep these guys out of our state. Why give them a helping hand by letting them offer your elite guys before we do? The kid is 6'6" 225 lbs for crying out loud, and he had about 20 sacks this season in 6A!!! There is something to be said about being the first (or one of the first) to offer. We don't have to look any further than Montravious Adams to see this. Clemson was the first to offer and they may be sitting in the driver's seat right now for all we know. And I'm not buying the "our coaches just don't throw out offers to anyone" argument. They've been recruiting Kamara for over a year. You mean to tell me that they haven't seen that 6'6" 225lbs gazelle running around the practice field? If he's not an OLB, then I dont' know who is! I really hope there's something that they don't like about the kid because if there isn't, then he should have an offer...
It is past time for a new Recruiting Coordinator Rodney Garners time is up. We need a younger guy in that position.
Really! The kids we have been getting the last 2-3 years? We are going to question our recruiting? There are over 200 D1 kids in Georgia. We cant get
them all. Its not over with Carter. If he wants to be a Dawg, he will wait!
Not questioning recruiting in general. I know our coaches get after it. All I'm saying is the kid has offers from Nick Saban and Urban Meyer (who are the gold standard of college football coaches whether we like to admit it or not) and he doesn't have one from the home-state school. I hope I'm over reacting but something just doesn't seem right when you look at that fact...
You're overreacting. His junior year isn't over yet.
Being first to offer doesn't mean squat nowadays. Just ask Nkemdiche.
We should of offered this kid a few months ago, when we offered Autry. Hell, we went to like 3 or 4 of HHS games this yr....
Have you considered the fact that we're bringing in two, maybe three pure OLB in this class, plus some guys that can play there that are counted to be ILB...plus all the guys we signed last year?
I understand you want to keep bringing in OLB in our scheme/ talented players in general. However, we do have a bit of luxury right now in evaluating/bringing in kids who would play OLB from the '14 class. I think we should offer Carter too, but I can see/understand a bit why we are slow playing out LBr/DB recruiting for the '14 class
It's just politics on how you offer an in-state kid. Read in Bruce Feldman's Meat Market the saying goes "offering an out of state kid early is just trying to get a spot in the boat...offering an in-state kid early is like buying the boat."
"....All I ask is that he be loyal to Georgia, proud of that jersey, and try like the devil to win." --- Wally Butts
he will be offered soon and he understands our reasoning behind it. GO DAWGS!
If any recruit that thinks getting an early offer from Saban or Meyer or Clemson means anything, I bet I can give them a very long list of guys that ended up accepting the commit only to be told to hit the road later on. I know this happens some at UGA as well, but at least it seems to happen earlier and the coaches still let it be the kid's decision, although one heavily hinted at by the coaching staff.
More like it is past time for you to know how to spell a coach's name correctly.
Really spellcheck? The guy obviously didn't put an apostrophe in and you're trying grammar check on a football message board that can be updated from a phone. Way to show you're an ass. Look, I like CRG, and don't see a need for changing him out as recruiting coordinator, but that guy has a right to his opinion without "having his paper graded." Didn't realize there would be a test... Not trying to aggravate you, but chill with the grammar shit, you must be hanging out with PHDawg.
Normally I would have let it go but the poster didn't even substantiate his post with any reasons why he would want him to go, other than wanting a younger guy. Garner doesn't determine where every offer goes, so to me the criticism of him wasn't warranted based on the topic.
Him not backing up his post with any reasons or facts made his post have no credibility along with the grammar/spelling.
