The AJ-C has proof that the AJ-C was right about Grantham.

Big recruiting news from the weekend is that Georgia has managed to flip Chamblee’s Davin Bellamy away from Florida State.

“Yes, Georgia is my leader,” Bellamy told the AJC on Sunday night. “They are losing eight starters on defense. They have Jordan Jenkins at one outside linebacker, with the other side kind of up for grabs. Coach (Todd) Grantham feels I can be his guy there, and compete for the job immediately.”

Awesome, right?  Well, there’s a teeny little catch.

“He said at outside linebacker, that I will be making a lot of money one day. The thing about that is, I hope he’s there while I’m there, if I decide to go there.”  [Emphasis added.]

So much for that clever marketing strategy.  Somewhere out there, Chip Towers is nodding sagely and muttering, “Told ‘ya so, Todd.”

    Still love the title of that article. “Todd Grantham’s Name Still Getting NFL Circulation”… despite the fact that the only “circulation” his name is actually getting in the piece is in Chip Towers’ own head.

    I’m sure the AJC specifically asked the kid about Grantham leaving. I doubt he would have flipped if he was worried otherwise.

    Last time I checked, kids have to be at the school for at least 3 years. I am pretty sure Grantham’s contract will be up before that long.

    Good Grief. It’s like Towers is holding Grantham up to a protection racket: give us material or we’ll torpedo your recruiting.

      +1 That’s exactly what Chip is doing. It’s a typical media ploy, if you don’t talk to us we will have to report the worst.

    Chip, you’re wasting your time on the Grantham story. The real ‘scoop’ is the upcoming groundhog day decision. Which way will Gen. Lee go this year? A flock of crane recruits just flew over, so it must be a shorter winter.
