You gotta love Seth Emerson’s lede this morning ($$).
Goodness, what an exodus of talent is hitting the Georgia defense: Three former five-star recruits, two more who were ranked in the top 100 of their class, and three more who were four-stars. And that doesn’t even include Jordan Davis.
That strips down the poor Georgia defense to only returning:
• 10 former five-star recruits
• Six more who were top-100 recruits
• 15 more who were four-star recruits
Kirby Smart’s cupboard, not very bare at all as it turns out.
Yeah, there’s some serious experience walking out the door, but that’s life in college football these days if yours is an elite program. Better to have talent on hand to replace it than not. And maybe there’s a transfer or two in the works, to boot.
I’ll take my chances with it, thank you very much.
