Tons of JAGs and guys that seemed to be bad evaluations, talent and character wise -

Jeff Thomas - Headcase whose issues off the field surpass his on field production

Navaughn Donaldson - Came in overweight, still overweight and lazy and gets beat by smaller lesser talent guys constantly, huge disappointment

DJ Johnson - Not competing at Paradise Camp should've been a sign. Transferred out

N'Kosi Perry - Off field issues. Matured this year, but hasn't put it together on the field.

Kai-Leon Herbert - JAG

Zalontae Hillery - JAG

Jhavote Dean - JAGish

Amari Carter - Really struggles in space at S. Better in the box as a LB or blitzing safety

Brian Polendy - JAG - Transfered

Cade Weldon - JAG and Off Field Issues

Zach Dyksta - JAG

Zach Feagles - JAG, brutal

Evidence Njoku - JAG, transferred out

Waynmon Steed - Injuries

Bradley Jennings - Injuries

Robert Burns - Injuries and surpassed by better players

De'Andre Wilder - Injuries

Derrick Smith - complained about PT, transferred out


Thats 18 of out 24 commits that have virtually been irrelevant to this team and program. 2 out of the 6 that have been starters (Trajan & Gaynor) were borderline offers by the staff at the time. Makes you realize, Richt was losing his touch as a recruiter as well.

Was a transition class. Not much time to save the mess Golden left. With that said the 2018 class hasn't produce much yet either.
