Lowndes OL Dyshon Sims committed to Georgia at Dawg Night yesterday. Evidently ‘Bama finished a close second. Sims pointed to one factor that tipped the scales in Mark Richt’s favor:
“I also like how you get a four-year scholarship at Georgia. That’s one of the main reasons I picked it. From my understanding, you get three years at Alabama, and you only get a scholarship for each year. If you don’t show enough progression, then your scholarship is pretty much gone at Alabama.”
Hmmm… wonder who told him that? And how often do you suppose that’s getting repeated to recruits these days?
In any event, Sims cancelled his visit to Alabama planned for today, so I guess Saban will have to explain the facts of life to him by cell phone.
