Interesting tidbit-due to Eason's signing of a financial aid agreement with UGA and the increased contact by UGA coaches afterwards, if Eason were to sign with another school, UGA would likely have a heap of recruiting violations on their hands.

Firing a beloved coach after a 9-3 season -- however disappointing it may have been, and I'd say a good portion can be attributed to bad luck -- is bad enough, but to lose your star recruit at the most important position on the field to your archrival because of it?

Chernobyl would be jealous if that were to come to fruition.

Please explain?

Happened with LSU in March.

A recruit’s decision not to enroll at LSU after signing a financial aid agreement has the football program in some hot water.

LSU is banned from signing early enrollee recruits to financial aid agreements for the next two years, and the program will be stripped of 10 percent of its recruiting evaluation days in 2015, according to public records obtained by The Advocate.

The penalties, handed down by the Southeastern Conference and reported by the school Feb. 3, stem from a violation that occurred this fall involving an unnamed recruit.

The recruit signed a financial aid agreement with LSU, intending to enroll early in January and giving the school unlimited contact with him. But he decided not to enroll at the school. That makes at least some of LSU’s unlimited contact with the prospect illegal.

http://theadvocate.com/sports/lsu/11707183-123/records-lsu-slapped-with-recruiting

The NCAA modified the financial aid agreement (FAA) in April. It continued to allow schools “relaxed recruiting rules” for prospects who signed a financial aid agreement, but it also warned schools that they could be penalized for recruiting violations if that prospect did not eventually enroll in that school.

Eason is going to Athens this weekend, so the new staff (has anyone officially been hired yet?) will have a chance to keep him.

If anything the Richt firing gave him the chance to be wined and dined like most top recruits are.

I won't be surprised if he stays with his UGA commitment and likewise I won't be surprised if Coach Mac was able to flip him.

If Eason flips I fully expect us to pursue a graduate-transfer QB who can step in and start in '16.

But I haven't given up on Ramsey either. I still think there's upside there that the right coach could unlock. Lambert is a backup, though he did go 9-2 as a starter. Maybe with a full year to learn the offense he could be OK.

Yea it won't linger too long. If he decides to switch to UF i can understand, our coach has proven he can win even without a quarterback, we have a lot of young weapons for him to play with and we are a program on the rise.

UGA's stability under Richt is gone and it remains to be seen what the next regime will be capable of. UGA went from a sure thing to a question mark.

If he chooses UGA then he must really be in love with that school because football wise right now the Gators are the better, safer bet. :)

Yea the consensus among UGA fans is that they seem concerned. And rightfully so the kid has been a lock for a long time now and it is, all of a sudden, up in the air.

But you guys still have the advantage, he's been committed a long time, is still officially committed and you have what appears to be the last shot.

I think there is a 60% chance he goes to UGA. BTW did Kirby Smart officially sign or what? That could be a big deal.

Word is that Smart will officially become UGA coach after the SECCG. Eason's qB coach seems to think Helton from WKU will be the OC for UGA and Eason would make a good fit for that offense.

The kid has signed scholarship papers with UGA, was planning to enroll in January and so this last minute visit to Florida is just that - a backup plan if he decides that the new coaching staff is not going to employ him in the manner he thinks most beneficial to his possible pro future. Now saying that does not mean that I am unconcerned about his flipping - I am very concerned. McGarity has handled this whole affair so poorly that I have no faith right now that everything will come out okay. If Eason does flip to Florida and ends up winning a national title or the Heisman, then I will be among those tying McGarity to the rail upon which we will ride his worthless carcass out of town...

He signed financial aid papers. That obligates UGA to him, not him to UGA. I can only go by what Eason said. Paraphrasing, He is a Dawg unless they install a GT offense. Since he said this, given his behavior for the past 18 months, I have to believe him. His HS coach says he is a dawg. Any smartass in this post?

Why wouldn't Grier play again? Unless someone runs away with the job, he's still taking part in all team activities and practicing. The only thing he will have missed is game time. While obviously a big deal, he's still a redshirt sophomore in mid October next year. We don't need to be throwing Good QB's away at this point.

Probably because he can win the job over the summer and never lose it. If he is as good as advertised he would beat out Franks and have a huge leg up on Grier by the time he can play.

Plus we have an offensive coach and great playmakers who just need a competent QB to get them the ball.

No idea what's going on at UGA or how their offense will look.

It makes sense for Eason to explore his options since UGA fired the guy that he really wanted to play for.

12-07-2015, 06:25 PM
Antonio Callaway is a legit number 1. Lewis and Goolsby both made really nice plays in SEC action at TE you know when Treon got the ball near them. Jordan Scarlett and Jordan Cronkrite are both really good young backs. Plus the WR class were going to get by NSD is top notch. Add in some guys like Worton who were clearly underutilized because Treon sucks and there are weapons. They showed up better when Grier was in.

One guy did. One. Where was your commentary after Worton's TD? Even that drop Goolsby had to stretch for it but by Treon standards that's as good as you're getting. Go back to the film with Grier in and tell me everyone else doesn't look better. Hmmmm.

Nice endorsement from his coach


“It definitely left a really good, positive impression on him,” Durant said. “He liked it a lot, it’s definitely giving him something to think about. He’s doing a lot of thinking and he talked about how well they treated him there and how the vibe he got there was unbelievable. He said everyone there was behind him and he enjoyed his time there big time.”

Durant says that if he was the player, he would probably go ahead with the flip to Florida.

“If I was in Jacob’s shoes, I would be leaning heavily on Florida,” Durant said. “They have such good history with quarterbacks, plus they have McElwain and Nussmeier on the same team. That’s awesome right there, plus the quarterback competition is wide open as we can all see. That’s what I see but whatever decision Jacob makes, I’ll stand behind him.”

I still think UF loses to Alabama, with him, but lack of QB play was glaring and obvious the final 6 games for UF.

With the right QB, I do think UF had a decent shot at a NC this season. Did you see what happened to Ole Miss when we had a decent QB?

If he sticks with UGA, it will be because of the relationship he has with the other players coming in - especially Ben Cleveland. It will also be because Smart is a helluva a recruiter.

I will say as anxious as I am to have Smart name a OC, I am glad he is willing to lose Eason to ensure he gets the guy he feels best about to run the offense, as the OC is more important than any single player.

At this point it seems like a very difficult choice for Eason. I think he would prefer to stick with UGA, but not knowing who the OC is has to be a big stumbling block. Neither choice will surprise me that much.

And he will be in Athens this weekend.True but for a short weekend if you consider it logistically. If he is with Mac and Nuss Friday and flies out Saturday and loses 3 hours, it will be little more than a day by the time he flies back Sunday. So its very interesting right now. Three teams all waiting to see what happens if UDub is a factor now. I know for both UF and UGA QB is a huge need. I am not sure what UDub's situation is.

Fair assessment on Kirby's situation. He can succeed long term without any one QB but not without a good OC. And from Eason's perspective he is trying to build a long, pro career so he needs to choose based on that. Will be interesting.

Eason's coach said he was all UGA, and that was before Smart's in-home. He said UF was a backup if UGA hired a Mumme type OC. Smart told a recruit yesterday that we will still be pro style.
If I had to make a guess, it would take something really bad for Eason to flip. He has been recruiting for UGA for 18 months, and is very close to Cleveland, Nauta, and Willie Allen. Cleveland and Willie Allen will be with him this weekend.
However, since Da'Rick I don't count them until the ink is dry.

UGA has Bailey Hockman coming for 2017 and he is a top 10 QB nationally and word is UGA looks good, with maybe only UT leading for 2018 #1 player overall Trevor Lawrence from Cartersville, Ga. Lawrence is supposed to be the best QB out of HS the past 5 years or so and has played against the top Georgia talent and dominated since he was a freshman. I could actually stomach losing Eason if it meant UGA got Lawrence instead.

GatorMan32
12-11-2015, 07:38 PM
Not sure I'd go that route especially because you never know what will change between now and then. I am actually OK with losing Eason because Allen is a star and I think he might be better than any of this group. I don't want to mess with him taking 3 now. Franks could be special and take that job and run with it. Plus Trask was unselfish and did not leave his HS but he has talent. So UF, especially if Grier comes back, will have its best QB situation in a long time. Even without Eason. Not to say I would not be thrilled if he chose UF, especially if Allen stayed solid to UF. I just think he sticks with UGA as of now.
