“Yeah, I’m going to be the next playmaker.”

If talent and confidence are all it takes to succeed on the college level, then Tray Matthews is destined to be all-SEC.

It’s not like Georgia couldn’t use the help, either.

    He has great attitude.

    I like the last comment about staying humble…after a full article of him telling us how he’s the next playmaker. 🙂

    Hope he comes in and does well.

    BTW, I don’t really read recruiting stuff, but SI had the top 100 recruits listed along with the schools they’re committed to or considering, and I believe we had one (this guy) listed in the top 100. Meanwhile, Bama, UF, A&M, LSU and others had multiple listings each. Should I be freaking out? Is there some reason we don’t have the same number as the others? Gah, I really hate recruiting season!

      Florida, Alabama, LSU, Texas AM, all have insane recruiting classes this year…. You should be concerned.

      UGA has a solid and deep class that fills a ton of needs. Safety, ILB, and the DL especially are paper thin, and Richt and Co. did a good job of filing those needs this year with Numbers and good talent. The other positive is if they can close on 3-6 guys that would really change the top end of the class to elite. I am a little pessimistic, but we should get at least 2-3 big names on signing day. Anything more would be fantastic; 1-2 recruits more is a failure….

        You’re not helping me, Alpha Dawg! 😉

        I don’t agree with you on this year’s class- there are some serious play makers in there beyond TM who is fantastic- Rankin, Kublanow (sp?), Wiggins, Bostick and more. If we add Tunsil, maybe M. Adams and Kamara a great class just gets better. Some of our players are way under the radar like the Rico guy from Emanuel County which means that SI would have to actually do some reporting to discover them. We all know now for a fact that SI does not engage in actual journalism. There seems to be some dawg-grading by the recruiting “experts” as well every year which amazes me considering how many Dawgs are in the NFL.

          Agree. Lots of talent and love the numbers. – and still in the hunt for a few of the top recruits in the nation. Time will tell, but we may look back at this class as being CMR’s best. Of course, the guys already on campus or solidly committed don’t count in the eyes of the national recruiting ‘experts’.

        Ahhh, the recruiting nerd / college football message board guy. Not many bigger losers out there.

        Question for these recruiting “experts” – where was Todd Gurley ranked?

        • Juan

          Or Richard Samuel or Ray Drew or Josh Harvey-Clemons?

          I look at our list of commitments and see SEC bodies in the areas we need it most. I also see more commitments than we’ve had sign in the last 2 years combined almost.

          That makes this an outstanding class in my opinion.

          Yeah, I know. I feel dirty worrying about where 17 year old kids are going to school. Of course, once they’re IN school, I think it’s perfectly normal to worry about 18-22 year old kids. 🙂

      Of course he’s going to be humble! He wouldn’t qualify as a great player unless he did. Good on him for saying how humble he is going to be. Gee, here’s hoping it doesn’t interfere with his hits.🙂

  3. Hey, I find it hard to stomach some of this “I’m the greatest” stuff. However, that’s a lot different than saying I’m going to be the next playmaker. What’s wrong with having confidence in your ability. I like that attitude and look forward to seeing if he can/will back it up.

    “In reality, there is, perhaps, no one of our natural passions so hard to subdue as pride. Disguise it, struggle with it, beat it down, stifle it, mortify it as much as one pleases, it is still alive, and will every now and then peep out and show itself; you will see it, perhaps, often in this history; for, even if I could conceive that I had completely overcome it, I should probably be proud of my humility.” Ben Franklin
