Well, I wasn’t expecting to hear this about a grad transfer Kirby Smart wooed and won:
Former Florida State defensive coordinator Harlon Barnett saw plenty of McKitty in practices to know what the Bulldogs are getting.
“Trey is the modern day tight end,” Barnett told DawgNation on Wednesday. “The modern day tight is a guy that is not necessary a great run blocker — he’s a position blocker — but he can run, and he can really catch.”
“When we recruited McKitty at Miami, we thought he was a great player,” Richt said on Monday in New Orleans. “He’s very agile. He’s a lot like (First-team All-ACC) Brevin Jordan who is at Miami now and is one of the better tight ends in the ACC.
“McKitty has got good ball skills, and he’s probably a better receiver than a blocker. But he’s a willing blocker, and he’s definitely a guy who can play.”
Either you believe that the Georgia staff can remake this kid into Mr. Manball in a matter of a few months, or else they really are thinking of making some changes to the offense.
