He doesn't know why? It was crazy? Georgia wore him out? It just felt right? All of these are great reasons.
Lex, as I posted in another thread on this site, all too often the young men being recruited are, at the end of the day, kids - and frankly, in many cases, their "word" is absolutely worthless. Some are simply too young, too immature, to understand the concept - or they don't possess the core values yet to grasp the idea that when you tell someone something, there comes at point when you don't go back on your word. Some people (not just athletes) never "get it" - others do.
The whole recruiting process is screwed up beyond belief. We need an early signing date, and a stoppage of all contact from coaches of schools other than the one to whom a commitment was given for several weeks leading up to signing day. This "babysitting" is costing schools an enormous amount of money and energy, and puts kids in an ever more difficult position.
Geez, wonder if he really thinks he's going to play tailback? He may not know it yet, but he's playing fullback. He'd rather lead block for UGA than tote the rock for GT. Screw him. Not very flattering to us but oh well. He was never excited to come here in the first place.What position did UGA recruit you at? Fullback? “At tailback, or running back. They have only two on scholarship right now. They are two really good ones. I’m ready to come in and compete. I’m just going to work hard and do what I can.”
What the hell is going on with recruiting?! Attrition seems abnormally high this year, no?

Georgia has 30 commitments in this signing class. How much does he think he will get to play?
The thing about an early signing date, wouldn't it just move the recruiting histrionics forward?

11 out of 12. When will this stop?

It's just more proof that we need to do a better job of identifying more "total person" SA's, guys who are as equally interested in education as they are in football. Guys who are just in it for just football are more likely to be swayed when a factory comes calling at the 9th hour. We are basically their "best" available offer until what they really want comes along.
"A compass, I learnt when I was surveying, it'll... it'll point you True North from where you're standing, but it's got no advice about the swamps and deserts and chasms that you'll encounter along the way. If in pursuit of your destination, you plunge ahead, heedless of obstacles, and achieve nothing more than to sink in a swamp... What's the use of knowing True North?"

The only thing worse than getting dumped by a hot cheerleader is being dumped by a fat girl in the glee club. The loss to GT talent wise probably isn't much but from a pride standpoint and the "market's" view of the program, it sucks.
