Junior, for some reason, feels the need to take a victory lap on Alabama’s recruiting.
Sure, right, whatever you say, Laner. Fromm was just wasting your precious time when you evaluated him and extended an offer. Even more curious –since when does anyone at Alabama care where a recruit gets drafted by the NFL? Nick Saban’s got plenty of shiny rings from national championship seasons with QBs who never sniffed the first round.
You’ll have to excuse me if this kind of stuff matters more to me than a kid’s draft potential.
Fromm, the SEC Freshman of the Year, finished his rookie season 12-2 as a starter.
“Fromm is a very bright kid,” Ridley said. “You can ask anyone in the room that. He’s very talented and he’s very smart. Our coaches really trust him to make the right checks and the right reads. When he’s out there if he has confidence in you he’s going to continue to go to you. I guess I started out hot tonight and he continued to work me. Unfortunately we came up short, but it’s branding and it’s going to continue to grow.”
“I wouldn’t want to have no other quarterback,” said receiver Terry Godwin. “He’s out there making the right checks, putting us in the right plays, and off the field he’s caring about us. He’s an overall complete guy. On the field he’s the leader we need.”
Oh, and strangely enough,
… Georgia quarterback Jake Fromm starts with the best odds to win the Heisman Trophy.
According to Sports Betting Dime, Fromm has 10/1 odds of winning the award.
Too bad for us Georgia fans he won’t be drafted in the first round.
