Im not leaving out the guys that came from the bigger schools. They fall into the same category. Before 2022 we had 8 transfers that would fall into the struggling to see the field category. Many of them 4 star players, from schools like Bama, Miami, Texas, and ND. None of them have made any meaningful contribution so far. We have decided to take 8 more of them in this recruiting cycle. We will see how it goes.They crap on a younger, inexperienced player who’s transferring in, because he’s obviously trash if he didn’t start as an 18 year old at a P5 school and is willing to come to dumpster fire Georgia Tech to play for Geoff Collins. But if that same player were leaving Tech? He’d be considered a world beater and it would be an indictment on the staff for letting him slip away.
They like to criticize inexperienced transfers coming from the likes of Kansas and Kentucky, but conveniently ignore the ones from Clemson, Bama, ND, and Auburn. Yes, I know those players didn’t play a lot at those schools, but they’re YOUNG and it’s CLEMSON, BAMA, ND, and AU. The best recruits on the planet go to those schools.
Oh, they must be scrubs because they’re coming from Buffalo, Wyoming, and Memphis? 1000 yard rusher at RB, Freshman AA/multi year starter at DE, and a multi year starter with 12.5 sacks at DT. Oh, but that was against G5 competition so it doesn’t count. Add Zach Gibson to this list.
Never mind the production we’re getting with Hassan Hall…or the speed, production and potential at TE we’re getting with Luke Benson.
I’m sure this post will get quoted and cherry picked.
