After the fallout from last week’s dismissal, Georgia Military College may both giveth and taketh away. In the short run, given the roster numbers, the former matters more:
Meanwhile, GMC is also home to a player that Georgia is thinking of offering a scholarship, possibly as soon as this year. Mario Alford, a running back who could play defensive back, spent the past year at GMC and could transfer immediately to a Division I school and have three years of eligibility, much like Mark Beard, the offensive lineman who enrolled at Georgia last month.
The Bulldogs are now in desperate need for depth at defensive backs, thanks to the dismissals of Marshall and Sanders. Williams said Monday that Georgia has not offered a scholarship to Alford yet.
“But they know about him,” Williams said.
If he can help, it’s pretty much a no-brainer.
