Fertile ground

Here’s a rather remarkable note from John Pennington“In terms of SEC commitments to date, the state of Georgia has produced 33, with Louisiana (15) and Florida (10) also producing in double-digits.”  That’s out of a total of 84, mind you.

So, yeah, what that means is that there are already more SEC commitments in mid-June than Georgia can sign next February.  It’s not possible for Richt to build a big enough fence to keep his rivals out of the state.

Just for yuks, Georgia Tech currently has four verbal commitments from Georgia high school players.  That’s less than Alabama and Vanderbilt have, and the same number as Kentucky.

    That whole “Vanderbilt’s Got More Georgia Kids Commited Than You Do” sure does throw a monkey wrench into Tech’s argument that their academic standards hold them back in recruiting the state.

    And yet we’ll still hear about all the Georgia kids being “cherry-picked” by the likes of Bama, Auburn, Florida, etc.

      I’d tend to agree with you if we were winning more than the 3 schools you listed. If we’re losing potential recruits to these schools, and they’re beating us and/or their programs are winning championships with GA kids, then we have a problem. I don’t care about Vandy signing GA kids, as long as we’re whipping their a$$ on game day.

    GT is simply a non-factor to me. Who have we lost to them in the last ten years that we really wanted? Maybe 3-4 guys? I know those of you who read the AJC have to see a story on them every week or two, but GT is never a part of any discussion I see, or hear, on CFB. That includes personal conversations, television coverage, and sports talk shows. Irrelevant is the term that comes to mind.
