It’s becoming readily apparent that Kirby Smart views kickers like beer: you can never have too much.
Signing Day may be nearly a month in the rearview mirror at this point, but there are still a select few division-one players lingering out there for teams to bring in. Many of these are specialists, and that’s exact who Georgia landed on Thursday night, as punter Bill Rubright committed to play as a preferred walk-on for Kirby Smart and the Bulldogs in 2017 and beyond…
Rubright is an in-state kid — he’s from the Atlanta area and played at Marist School — and according to 247Sports, he is the sixth-ranked punter in the country.
Honestly, what’s not to like about stocking up? You have to figure at some point if Smart gets enough in, he manages to hit pay dirt with at least one of them. It’s not like he could do much worse than last season, anyway.
