I mean, holy crap.
“There is (one) name that everyone will need to know on UGA’s defense,” David Pollack, the ESPN commentator and former Georgia star defensive end, tweeted after visiting Georgia practice last week. “Leonard Floyd is a freshman OLB who will be the next great pass rusher at UGA. Long, lean and explosive.”
Fortunately, it doesn’t seem to be freaking Floyd out.
“I came in and worked hard, and been doing good, I guess,” Floyd said. “Really, if you play hard you’ll end up making a play. I wouldn’t say it was easy, but it was OK.”
I hope it’s real, because if nothing else, another serious pass rush threat will make Jordan Jenkins’ life easier. Definitely something to watch in the opener.
