You might want to take a sec to read David Hale’s post about his interview with Richt at last night’s Bulldog Club meeting in Columbus. There’s more there than Hale lets on.
One thing in particular that caught my attention:
— He named three guys people aren’t talking about who might have big years: DE Justin Houston, K Drew Butler, and RB Carlton Thomas.
This isn’t the first time Richt’s dropped Carlton Thomas’ name into the conversation about potential incoming contributors. I get the feeling he’s really intrigued by this kid. Thomas certainly brings a different skill set to the table than the rest of the backs do. Whether that’s enough to get him on the field in ’08 is something we’ll have to watch for starting next week.
