Coach Kirby Smart continues to focus on the offensive side of the ball, because @that’s what he’s known for@. Recent changes in staff include adding Todd Monken as Offensive Coordinator, and then taking the additional step of naming Buster Faulkner as an analyst. There are definitely X’s and O’s at stake here.
In college, you still need Jimmies and Joes. And apparently, a Brock or two. UGA received the commitment from the nation’s 4th ranked quarterback in the 2021 class, and the #24 ranked overall 2021 prospect. With Brock Vandagriff’s recent announcement, the Bulldog coaching staff also solidified the Savannah and Chattahoochee River defense by claiming the #1 ranked quarterback and #2 prospect from the State of Georgia.
Vandagriff originally committed to Lincoln Riley and Oklahoma last summer, hoping to win the Heisman, run through the Big12, and get gutted in the College Football Playoffs. But the Prince Avenue Christian product called that off when momma called him home. Momma had a visor and used a helicopter to make that call.
His Junior Year highlights:
Pretty much the entire SEC was after Vandagriff, and the old addition by subtraction applies here somewhere. I mean, can you even imagine a local quarterback product suit up in any shade of orange? Of course you can’t.
The Georgia quarterback room just got a little crowded. In addition to the 6’3” Vandagriff reserved chair, they still need to make immediate room for Wake Forest graduate transfer Jamie Newman, incoming freshman Carson Beck, and medical redshirt D’Wan Mathis. I’m sure a graduate assistant or student manager can scrounge up a couple more chairs.
Many of the Bulldog faithful weren’t 100% satisfied with the offensive product put on the field this season. You can say a lot of things about it, but you can’t say Coach Smart and his team aren’t looking at alternatives.
And as always...
