You know something I don’t get? This.
Sam Pittman is having a great day today. That’s because he now has his left tackle.
That’s been the go-to line for Pittman down the home stretch of recruiting Pace Academy offensive tackle Andrew Thomas. The nation’s No. 10 offensive tackle chose Georgia on Saturday evening during ESPNU’s broadcast of Nike’s all-star “The Opening” prospect showcase in Oregon…
Thomas fulfills a major priority for Georgia as the top-rated offensive lineman in the state this year…
Andre Thomas said his son was sold on Pittman from the first meeting. That was important as Thomas was not deemed a recruiting priority by the previous staff. He was getting recruited harder by Alabama, Clemson, Florida State and Notre Dame. [Emphasis added.]
I mean, WTF? Georgia struggled to find true left tackles under Richt and here you’ve got a highly regarded in state recruit you can’t bring yourself to chase hard?
Even if you were a die hard believer in Richt as Georgia’s head coach, this is the kind of stuff that should drive you crazy.
