If Slaton wants to take a shot at DT then why the **** not? Even if his limited film at the position doesn't blow anyone away Kul has done more with less. I know we don't need a 0 tech anymore but it doesn't look like there will be another DT in this class so roll the dice on TD @ DT. If it doesn't work then there is always OG.
BC the kid is all over the place! He wants to play hoop...he doesn't want to be bothered with recruiting...he wants to play DT.
I think Richt is trying to send a message to all these kids
--No we don't see you as a DT, you have no shot to play hoop here T. Slaton? ESPECIALLY not when you and your teammates seem to really get sick pleasure out of jerking UM
-- Yes you were a backup plan, but you still had your offer well before the 11th hour Mr. Harley...you coming or not? And no your sister has no prayer to get a volleyball offer...
The inmates aren't running the asylum anymore. Whether it is right or wrong, Richt has NEVER been a hyper-aggressive, pull at all stops to get a kid recruiter. He's laid back, and will treat you like an adult, and will move on to the next one. It may not be the best technique for getting kids in today's market, but he will get his fair share! I believe he's looking for a certain type of kid, and he's building the type of program he wants. The kids he's bringing in WILL respect him and this program, and he has only so much space for the primadonna types.
Just my 2 cents. I think it will work to get us AT LEAST back to the consistent top 15 plateau...Whether it can go further in today's blood game of recruiting remains to be seen.
