What do you really expect from a university like UGA where the four-legged, testicle-licking mascot is smarter (and more well-mannered) than 95% of the criminal student-athletes and their drunken fans?

I will not crap on the kid or this class as a whole.
I've seen this kid many times in person. Definitely a D-1 athlete...though maybe not a QB. Here's his video:
VERY fast...pretty much carried McEachern's offense towards the end of the season. Was actually his first year at McEachern, as his family moved to there from North Cobb due to some politics. Did pretty well considering he was playing with kids he was unfamiliar with in an offense he was learning as the year went on. Played in a Pistol offense, and pretty much got by on pure athleticism the first half of the season. He also split time with another kid or his numbers would have been bigger. His brother will be a stud in 2015, so that could be a bonus.
Definitely not an "even trade" with Damon at this point in their careers, but I think he's just as fast as Damon, maybe not the passer yet, nor does he have Damon's size. I could see him playing AB or DB later in his career. VERY surprised no one really offered him...you could definitley tell he belonged on this level somewhere if you watched him play...he stuck out like a sore thumb with his ability to create something out of nothing and leave guys in the dust.
another thing Tech needs DLineman so why ???
Well, kids got some quicks. Definitely a raw passer, but he's an athlete. I'm trying to be pretty positive about this.....he may not be as good as Mitchell right now, but it looks like he could find a spot on the field after a redshirt year. If he doesn't end up at AB or DB, he could be a solid backup QB for us. Think a Jaybo type who could spell Vad/Justin for a game or two.
Well, scout says he has offers from the academies. We might've been able to get a better QB if Damon hadn't screwed us at the last second. Not that I'm writing this kid off immediately, but he's really raw and pretty thin.
I really not trying to crap on the kid, but really this is embarrassing ...
Apparently move was made this week to prevent him from visiting UNC.
