Seriously, can anybody explain something Kirby Smart said about Solomon Kindley’s future to me?
When Solomon Kindley stepped in for a third-and-short against Missouri, it appeared to be the first of many plays the freshman from Jacksonville, Florida, would see in his first season.
But Kindley hasn’t seen the football field since and may not be eligible for a redshirt as a result. Georgia head coach Kirby Smart is holding out hope that the Bulldogs can work out something to get him a redshirt in the event he doesn’t see another snap this year.
Smart said Kindley has battled some injuries to where Georgia could possibly look into a medical redshirt. In addition, because he played one snap over the first four games of the season, Smart believes there may be a way to get a redshirt even without the medical designation.
But nothing is certain when it comes to whether Kindley will get back this year of eligibility.
“We’re basically looking into all those with him to hopefully get it back,” Smart said. “But to be honest with you, if he’s a really good player down the road like we think he will be then he may not play that next year anyway.”
The kid was good enough for the staff to burn his redshirt in his true freshman season, but if he turns out to be really good, he’ll redshirt for sure as a sophomore? So what would that say about Kindley if Kirby figures out a way to redshirt him for 2016 after all?
