    Jul 24, 2014 1:15 PM - Eric: News on Myles coming soon it looks like.
    Jul 24, 2014 1:16 PM - jeffgt14: Doesn't sound like he's coming here
    Jul 24, 2014 1:17 PM - Fredge: Good or bad...or does it depend?
    Jul 24, 2014 1:17 PM - Eric: only Myles knows that.
    Jul 24, 2014 1:18 PM - Fredge: Eric, do yo think CPJ wants him still?
    Jul 24, 2014 1:18 PM - Eric: I also think CPJ is doing ESPN things today, so not sure where the meet up is going to happen.
    Jul 24, 2014 1:19 PM - Eric: I would guess so but I am sure he understands both sides of the coin. I can tell you that there are a few at GT who think it is better if he doesnt come to Tech.
    Jul 24, 2014 1:22 PM - Fredge: Is there any road back for the 3 that were dismissed?
    Jul 24, 2014 1:22 PM - Eric: No definitely not.
    Jul 24, 2014 1:23 PM - Eric: You guys feel free to answer any recruiting or team questions...I will answer what I know or give my best guess.
    Jul 24, 2014 1:23 PM - Old School: A few at GT meaning the coaches, players, or both who think it's better if he doesn't come?
    Jul 24, 2014 1:23 PM - jacketjp: Do we know why Scott Morgan insisted on going to the Vanderbilt camp today? Seems odd given that much of his recruitment seems to be due to his brother's talent and his brother is ready to commit to GT.
    Jul 24, 2014 1:24 PM - jeffgt14: When the heck it Brentavious gonna commit!?
    Jul 24, 2014 1:24 PM - Eric: I dont want to go into to much detail on that..just a few people at GT that I talked to this morning.
    Jul 24, 2014 1:25 PM - Eric: Scott has always wanted to visit around and plus they had this camp planned for over a month according to Brad. They also already paid for it.
    Jul 24, 2014 1:26 PM - Eric: @jeffgt14 who the heck knows...I was told by one of our coaches and one of our commits that he LOVES the attention so he could stretch it out. He really likes the Twitter attention he is getting.
    Jul 24, 2014 1:27 PM - danny daniel: Are Harrell and Jeune healthwise srarting camp on time
    Jul 24, 2014 1:27 PM - jeffgt14: Makes sense. I don't even think he's on anyone elses radar anymore.
    Jul 24, 2014 1:28 PM - Eric: Jeune is good to go...Harrell should be ready about a week into camp.
    Jul 24, 2014 1:28 PM - DaddyBill: Eric, so you feel like more freshmen are going to be playing this year to even out the numbers due to the loses?
    Jul 24, 2014 1:28 PM - Eric: @DaddyBill without a doubt. I posted that same thing yesterday.
    Jul 24, 2014 1:29 PM - DaddyBill: I saw that, so I wanted to make sure....lol
    Jul 24, 2014 1:29 PM - Eric: Haha yeah...CPJ has said that if a guy can help on all special teams then to play him.
    Jul 24, 2014 1:30 PM - DallasBuzzFan: If Whitehead isn't able to report until after August 8th, will he have a realistic chance to break the 2 deep? Do you expect him to anyway?
    Jul 24, 2014 1:30 PM - jeffgt14: You think Qua definitely stays at WR now since we lost Autry?
    Jul 24, 2014 1:30 PM - danny daniel: Is Klock O or D ? Maybe camp will decide?
    Jul 24, 2014 1:30 PM - Eric: Yeah coaches seem intent on him being a WR.
    Jul 24, 2014 1:30 PM - IronJacket7: I am assuming that with the loss of Commissiong that there is no chance if there ever was any of Gotsis getting to play some SDE....?
    Jul 24, 2014 1:30 PM - Eric: He came to Tech as a OL, we will find out for sure next week. IMO we need to move him to DT.
    Jul 24, 2014 1:31 PM - Eric: I think it is slim, Could seem Gamble slide over to SDE some.
    Jul 24, 2014 1:32 PM - wingsrlevel: What's the chances of Chaz Cheeks stepping up and getting some PT this year?
    Jul 24, 2014 1:32 PM - Eric: I was told that if Chaz seems game action we are in big trouble fwiw.
    Jul 24, 2014 1:35 PM - chrsw003: Still expecting cooper to commit tomorrow?
    Jul 24, 2014 1:35 PM - wingsrlevel: Damn...not good. This is his 4th year in the program and he has yet to make a contribution. I'm not sure if he playedspecial teams.
    Jul 24, 2014 1:36 PM - Eric: Yeah, I think he will commit tomorrow. If he is smart he will. Coaches think he will too fwiw.
    Jul 24, 2014 1:36 PM - Eric: Things have not progressed well with Chaz, lets hope the light clicks on.
    Jul 24, 2014 1:37 PM - danny daniel: Do we still think Eason will get elgibility this season and if so is he a candidate for RT D1 ?
    Jul 24, 2014 1:37 PM - Fredge: Is Evyn 4-star on some services? Impressive offer list
    Jul 24, 2014 1:37 PM - Eric: We just sent out a new offer...give me a second to post thread and i will be back
    Jul 24, 2014 1:38 PM - IronJacket7: d*** it! Eric left us....
    Jul 24, 2014 1:38 PM - Eric: im back lol
    Jul 24, 2014 1:38 PM - Eric: We do think he will...and I would say second team is more likely his ceiling. He has to learn the offense.
    Jul 24, 2014 1:38 PM - Longestday: Zack posted a picture jimbo_1up... Does anyone know his name?
    Jul 24, 2014 1:39 PM - Eric: That offer list for Evyn is not correct.
    Jul 24, 2014 1:53 PM - bat_082994: I've heard rumors of Anthony Harrell possibly moving to DE. Any truth to those rumors that you know of?
    Jul 24, 2014 1:59 PM - Eric: I have posted about that on here before...He will play a hybrid role. He could get some snaps at DE but he is still at LB
    Jul 24, 2014 1:59 PM - bat_082994: OK thanks Eric!
    Jul 24, 2014 2:00 PM - Eric: Yes sir.
    Jul 24, 2014 2:01 PM - IronJacket7: I used to wish Kelley Rhino was used in a hybrid role... Punt Returner and DT. Kid was a beast!
    Jul 24, 2014 2:02 PM - SidewalkJacket: I know of at least one player who spoke very supportive of how Coach handled the recent dismissals. Do you feel like the bulk of our main guys (leaders and contributors) are on board with the high standards that the staff has? All organizations have some division among the ranks, but what's your overall feel?
    Jul 24, 2014 2:04 PM - CTJacket: Great question, SidewalkJacket
    Jul 24, 2014 2:04 PM - Eric: Yes without a doubt, I talked to one this morning who absolutely laid in to Darius Commissiong. They felt it was the right move...That guy is a leader so I think many would feel the same way.
    Jul 24, 2014 2:05 PM - CTJacket: Thanks, Eric. This is really good to know. It definitely makes me feel right about the leadership both on the team and with CPJ, CTR, etc.
    Jul 24, 2014 2:06 PM - SidewalkJacket: This same guy told me last year that many of our offensive players (especially some of the younger guys) understood that our passing game was totally predicated on our ability to execute our run game. He was high on JT as well. He told me after the dismissals that this has brought the team closer together.
    Jul 24, 2014 2:07 PM - SidewalkJacket: i know those were totally seperate thoughts in that last post
    Jul 24, 2014 2:07 PM - Eric: Yeah just hurts the depth. The player I talked to is honest with me..he loves JT and he also commented that this is the closest knit that he has been on at Tech.
    Jul 24, 2014 2:08 PM - SidewalkJacket: what i gathered from him was that there was "division" last year among "some" on offense, and that seems to be gone now
    Jul 24, 2014 2:08 PM - Eric: I was told the same thing this morning lol, weird.
    Jul 24, 2014 2:08 PM - jeffgt14: I bet y'all are talking to the same player ;)
    Jul 24, 2014 2:08 PM - DallasBuzzFan: Preddy played both ways in HS and seemed to be pretty good on defense. Any chance they may slide him over to DT?
    Jul 24, 2014 2:09 PM - Eric: Preddy doesnt have the frame for a DT. If he did play defense it would be as a DE.
    Jul 24, 2014 2:10 PM - Eric: lol sounds like it.
    Jul 24, 2014 2:13 PM - DallasBuzzFan: He is listed on the roster now at 6-3 270, and is just a true freshman. I was thinking maybe he could grow in to it. We just seem so thin there now, i would think they have to be looking at a couple of people to move
    Jul 24, 2014 2:14 PM - jeffgt14: Or another conspiracy! Maybe SidewalkJacket… is that player! :D Alright but serious question, you think the fact that some of these players thought CPJ did the right thing is the reason some may not want Myles to come?
    Jul 24, 2014 2:14 PM - Eric: Preddy just isn't a DT...They are looking at all options. Obvious one is Klock.
    Jul 24, 2014 2:21 PM - daBuzz: Coaches really like JT as well but one of the non-offensive coaches told me that the entire coaching staff is "concerned" about Justin's tendency to put the ball on the ground. He said that Byerly may end up getting playing time this season for just that reason if JT doesn't "clean that up".
    Jul 24, 2014 2:21 PM - sl1m75: just wanted to thank Eric for keeping us up to date on everything GT Football related
    Jul 24, 2014 2:24 PM - CTJacket: Hear-hear! Thanks, Eric!!!
    Jul 24, 2014 2:32 PM - SidewalkJacket: totally legit concern with JT's fumbles... just remember how many times the ball hit the ground in practices and games with JfN. We got some very fortunate bounces in some of the biggest games of all.
    Jul 24, 2014 2:35 PM - ramblinvak: From what I remember after the season ended, many people on here posted that it wasn't JT's fumbles that concerned them it was him trying to force each play and pitching when it would be safer just to go down. It really hard to examine TBs fumbling problems due to the spring game being in a monsoon...

    Jul 24, 2014 at 2:41 PM - danny daniel: How much info will we get during the camp, such as who's progressing, who's banged up or out, who's changed positions, who's joined the camp, etc? I would be especially interested in how the freshmen and new guys (Kagawa, Eason, Whitehead) are doing?
    Jul 24, 2014 at 2:45 PM - Eric: There wont be much info coming out of camp besides the post practices audio and one open scrimmage.
    Jul 24, 2014 at 2:48 PM - Eric: Would expect news on Myles fairly soon
    Jul 24, 2014 at 2:49 PM - boozinbuzz: soon as in today?
    Jul 24, 2014 at 2:50 PM - Frenchise: any idea on kenderius' weight?
    Jul 24, 2014 at 3:11 PM - Eric: Soon as is done now.
    Jul 24, 2014 at 3:11 PM - AE 87: https://twitter.com/MylesAutry
    Jul 24, 2014 at 3:11 PM - jeffgt14: Yep...
    Jul 24, 2014 at 3:11 PM - Eric: Not since I last posted the update awhile back
    Jul 24, 2014 at 3:17 PM - Fredge: I would guess <1% chance Myles ever plays here, despite that 2nd twitter about him still deciding. Even with the release, he has to sit out a year....correct?
    Jul 24, 2014 at 3:18 PM - Eric: He does not have the option of coming back to GT.
    Jul 24, 2014 at 3:19 PM - Fredge: Oh...he had an immediate 2nd tweet saying GT may still be his choice. Does he have any FBS options?
    Jul 24, 2014 at 3:19 PM - Eric: I am sure he will find some..we will see what happens from here.
    Jul 24, 2014 at 3:21 PM - jeffgt14: Minnesota...
    Jul 24, 2014 at 3:22 PM - Eric: It will likely be somewhere decent...schools have open spots now so somebody will take a chance on him.
    Jul 24, 2014 at 3:29 PM - CTJacket: It's fine to me - I'm not mad at him but I will say after what I've heard here and elsewhere I agree it's better for him (and us) to move on.
    Jul 24, 2014 at 3:38 PM - Longestday: He will look for somewhere that will taken him and his brother as a package?
    Jul 24, 2014 at 3:41 PM - Longestday: Eric, does he still have the option to pick GT?
    Jul 24, 2014 at 3:43 PM - CTJacket: @Longestday - Eric mentioned above that he does NOT have the option to come to GT now
    Jul 24, 2014 at 3:44 PM - Eric: GT isnt a choice for him.
    Jul 24, 2014 at 3:46 PM - Southpaw13: It's probably better that the distractions are out of the way. It's been said before that we don't want prima dona's that think they are too good for our program. I want guys that want to work hard and are willing to do what it takes to win.
    Jul 24, 2014 at 3:51 PM - Southpaw13: We need some good news around here... when are Morgan, Morgan, Glanton and Sandifer going to make it official?
    Jul 24, 2014 at 3:54 PM - Eric: Morgan twins should be tonight or tomorrow...Glanton who knows...Sandifer isnt a option for GT.
    Jul 24, 2014 at 3:55 PM - Southpaw13: Is that to say we've moved on?
    Jul 24, 2014 at 3:56 PM - Eric: I think both sides have.
    Jul 24, 2014 at 3:57 PM - Southpaw13: So will we fill the 3 scholarships we just lost with the same positions? WR, DE and DT?
    Jul 24, 2014 at 3:58 PM - Eric: No..I think in addition to what we were already taking...OL, DT and then whatver else they want.
    Jul 24, 2014 at 4:01 PM - Southpaw13: So we will take a 3rd OL... who is next in line for that after the Morgan's?
    Jul 24, 2014 at 4:03 PM - Longestday: So if Scott commits, de we still have one more DT spot?
    Jul 24, 2014 at 4:20 PM - ramblin_man: Eric if you could point out a personal favorite for our coaches to pursue that they are not currently after..... Who would that be and why?
    Jul 24, 2014 at 4:22 PM - Longestday: http://www.ajc.com/news/sports/college/autry-receives-release-from-tech/ngm6M/
    Jul 24, 2014 at 4:22 PM - Eric: I am not sure where they like Scott at, h e could be the third OL.
    Jul 24, 2014 at 4:24 PM - Longestday: Thanks
    Jul 24, 2014 at 4:25 PM - Longestday: Hate to see some of the "bad" GT twitter comments.... just awful.
    Jul 24, 2014 at 4:26 PM - Eric: I am not sure Ramblin_Man...Good question.
    Jul 24, 2014 at 4:42 PM - ramblin_man: Eric what would you say are the coaches top 3 attributes/characteristics that the coaches home in on as they whittle down which recruits to pursue?
    Jul 24, 2014 at 4:44 PM - Eric: depends on position....the main the we look at when we start out is the grades and if we think they can make it at Tech..we also check charachter and if they will give Tech a good name.
    Jul 24, 2014 at 4:46 PM - Southpaw13: I hate to say it, but it seems we need to revisit the character evaluation formula based on this offseason?
    Jul 24, 2014 at 4:56 PM - Eric: Every kid isn't going to pan out...for the most part we have really good kids on our team.
    Jul 24, 2014 at 5:12 PM - Southpaw13: I would agree with that as an overall statement.
    Jul 24, 2014 at 5:31 PM - GT_B: Just throwing this out there...it seems like too much of a deal is being made about the autry(s) situation. I still think we are going to have a good year, the sky isnt falling. None of our core peices were affected outside of griffin for the first 2 games. JT,Laskey, Nealy, Gotsis, Marcodes, Mason really good year coming from those guys.
    Jul 24, 2014 at 5:58 PM - jeffgt14: I agree. I do think the loss of Commish hurts some. I think the biggest thing that hurts is these latest losses compounded on top of all the other losses this offseason.
    Jul 24, 2014 at 6:31 PM - Longestday: Autry hurts a little for 2015 right?
    Jul 24, 2014 at 6:38 PM - jeffgt14: I think he's replaceable. we have good players there and have more coming in.
