We all know Kirby wants a lot more size on the d-line than he inherited, but, honestly, I’m a little surprised at the math:
As we speak – on campus today – the Bulldogs only have four defensive linemen who check in at over 300 pounds – Trenton Thompson, John Atkins, DaQuan Hawkins and Julian Rochester, whose status for the opener remain unclear following his arrest in April on a felony charge of having a weapon on campus (a bb gun) and destruction of property.”
While that number will increase by two when Michail Carter and Tyler Clark arrive with the rest of Georgia’s freshman class on June 1, that’s not going to do much to alleviate Smart’s fears until the Bulldogs can add more depth via recruiting.
If you’d have asked me before I read that how many 300+ pounders Rocker would be coaching this season, I’d have said half that. Granted, three of those are true freshmen. What’s the over/under on how many of them redshirt?
