Since 1995 - Insightful commentary on the Georgia Bulldogs

Post 2007 signing class intact

Monday August 6, 2007

I can’t remember it happening before. Usually, there are at least one or two signees (sometimes many more, unfortunately) who fail to qualify academically.

Not this year.

For once, we can say that all 23 men from Georgia’s 2007 signing class are eligible. We learned today that safety John Knox had made a qualifying test score. The news comes on the heels of last week’s announcement that cornerback Vance Cuff had met eligibility requirements.

Vance and Knox join a deep defensive backfield, so neither was counted on for immediate playing time. Regardless, the value of a freshman year spent developing inside the program is far greater than the alternatives.

Hopefully years like this will become the rule rather than the exception.
