I’ve received quite a few e-mails asking that I share this story on the blog. There really isn’t much to add, except that none of it’s surprising, given what we know about the kind of man Mark Richt is.
“Jeremy is a genuine guy, and a down-to-earth guy … so sure, coaches like him,” Richt said. “They’re going to love Ekeler, and Rocker is an Atlanta guy. He’s a Georgia guy who went to high school to Atlanta. He’s got a tremendous reputation, and people have a lot of respect for Rocker.
“So we absolutely strengthened ourselves in this area of recruiting.” -- Mark Richt, AJ-C, 3/4/14
