As the secondary turns

A play in several acts.

First came word yesterday afternoon that Brandon Turnage had a change of heart about his Georgia commitment out of the transfer portal.  Dawgnation was quick to jump on the bad news.

The future of Alabama transfer Brandon Turnage is in question after sources said he was not on the Georgia team.

From what Weiszer reported, Turnage had second thoughts.

A former Alabama defensive back who announced he was transferring to Georgia may not be a part of the program after all.

Brandon Turnage spoke to his high school coach a couple of days ago.

“He was just going through some things,” Michael Fair, who coached Turnage at Lafayette High School in Oxford, Miss., said Sunday night. “He just said he didn’t feel comfortable for some reason.”

I can’t imagine it’s about competition.  The Kendrick news wasn’t exactly a closely held secret and Kirby Smart’s not exactly the kind of guy who doesn’t lay out what’s going on with the program and over-promise.

Anyway, from there, things got fun.  First, Turnage himself took to Twitter to calm the waters.

Whatever that means.

Meanwhile, Smart relaxed in his own way.

Evans is a 6-2, 195-lb. graduate cornerback from Tulsa with two years eligibility remaining.  He’s one of the more highly sought remaining targets in the transfer portal.  Sounds like a message is being sent to Mr. Turnage.

I’ll let Seth Emerson summarize.

My head hurts.

    Got it as the Chattahoochee after a flood.

    While Mullen is loading his wagon hitched to a dead mule. Kirby continues to load the cannon with weapons.

    Kirby’s going to do everything within his control to ensure that he’s playing with a full deck. He has his flaws, but roster management definitely isn’t one of em.

  6. Guess there’s no sense in buying one of those preseason football magazines. Who knows what players will be where, in 3 months?

    Here’s my idea:

    They need to make the Portal like Linked-In when you’re looking for a job. Make it so your coaches can’t see you’re in the portal, but all the other coaches can so you can evaluate if there’s a good market for you. Interview with the opportunities you like the most, THEN you make a decision and your coaches and the media find out.

    Kirby is going to film his next Ford commercial driving an F-150 through the portal where it’s empty going in and loaded with players coming out of the other side.
