Talk about your awkward interviews.
How did Richt feel about Roquan’s decision to not sign an NLI?
“Well, hmmm …” Richt told the AJC on Friday, before pausing for a few seconds.
The UGA coach then deliberated on that question for a little longer.
“I guess it’s new,” Richt said. “But the main thing was that I was happy he signed his scholarship with Georgia.”
Does Richt think Roquan will be a trendsetter for elite prospects in the future?
“Um, I don’t know … It remains to be seen,” he said. This time, it was me who paused for a few seconds to see if he would expand on his answer. Richt didn’t.
He knows. But he ain’t sayin’.
