In case you were wondering why Kirby was keen to retain Stetson Bennett’s services, as best I can tell from sniffing around the Intertubes, here’s who’s left after Fromm and Fields:
- John Seter. He’s a redshirt freshman. At 6-3, he’s certainly taller than Bennett, and, like Bennett, he did pitch in with some scout team work last year. That’s enough to make him the clear number three going into fall practice.
- Christian Kerut. He’s a true freshman from New Orleans who’s a little bigger than Seter. He’s been through spring practice. That’s enough to make him number four for now, because…
- Matthew Downing. He’s a local boy from Alpharetta who, like Bennett, turned down some small school offers to attend Georgia. He’s enrolling this summer.
If that list doesn’t scream KIRBY’S LOOKING FOR A GRADUATE TRANSFER QUARTERBACK EVERY WAKING MOMENT OF THE DAY, I don’t know what does. The irony here is that he’ll likely have to spend the scholarship he was reluctant to give Bennett to get a transfer in the door. Such are the vagaries of roster management, circa 2018.
