UGA 1980 - Don't throw the football Danny


  • We'll have evaluations of the OL and DL coming up next week, but yesterday Brad Scott indicated that the starting OL going into spring would be Hairston, David Smith, Freeman, McClain, and Walker. Phil Price is up to 280lbs. and working out at 2-RT behind Walker, while RS Fr. Brandon Thomas is at 2-LT as we suspected. Obviously, Brad doesnt want anyone to come in and push Walker so he doesnt take this spring "off" like last year. With Cloy out though, the choices at 1st team LG would be stuck with Norris, Sanders, and K. Davis. I would think Norris could be pushed into it at LG, but I guess they want to roll him out with the 2's at RG.

  • Spring Practice opens March 7 at 3:30. We dont know yet whats open to the public. The Spring game is April 10 at 4pm.
  • This weekend is Clemson's first big on-campus Junior Day. Around 27 prospects are scheduled to be here starting Saturday morning and ending after the basketball game. This is a critical weekend for many of the players we will be chasing for 2011. I won't go into the whole list because I don't care to cover recruiting until January, unless we get a big commitment. I'm still hoping a couple of these guys do commit this weekend.
