Since 1995 - Insightful commentary on the Georgia Bulldogs

Post Izzy going to play football?

Monday June 4, 2007
No, not that Izzy.

In the excitement over commitments from two of the top receivers in the 2008 class, we forget that Georgia signed a couple of standouts this year. Walter Hill is a tall leaper who chose football over basketball and will give the Dawgs a big target. But the star receiver prospect last year in the state was Tift County’s Israel Troupe. Fans tempered their enthusiasm over Troupe’s commitment because he is considered a top baseball prospect, and we always had to consider that a lucrative MLB contract might keep him from playing football.

Chad Simmons of UGASports.com is reporting that Troupe has arrived on campus (along with nearly every other 2007 signee). Though the MLB draft is still a few days away and we won’t know his draft status for certain until then, Troupe taking the step to show up on campus is a great sign in terms of what he expects to happen. Unless something big happens on June 7th and 8th, it looks as if we can expect Troupe to play football for Georgia, and that’s great news for football fans.
