Since 1995 - Insightful commentary on the Georgia Bulldogs

Post Reserve OL out for the year

Tuesday August 26, 2008

It was a bit of a coup when Chris Little signed with Georgia in 2007. The USA Today 1st Team All American offensive lineman was originally an FSU commitment, changed his pledge to Notre Dame, and then pulled a Signing Day surprise by signing with the Bulldogs. Little’s letter of intent, at the time, took the edge off of another Signing Day surprise when Antwane Greenlee went with FSU instead of Georgia.

Little so far has been one of those star-crossed players. He had the recruiting pedigree, but since arriving in Athens he’s battled weight issues and has had to deal with the unexpected passing of his mother.

Season-ending foot surgery is Little’s most recent setback. He had surgery for a stress fracture in the spring, but the problems persist, and the weight problems can’t be helping. The Banner-Herald reports today that this most recent surgery will sideline him for 2008. Hopefully he can find a way to remain in shape and active while his foot recovers or it will be a long road back next spring and preseason.
