Just as a quick/easy comparison, since they were in the same class. Fields, 5-star, left 1 season. Jones, 4-star, has stuck around going on 3 years now. I would take a less talented player that sticks around as a backup and then starts JR/SR year.

The buyouts are insane, $60 for Jimbo, lol.
Surprised Smart is paid that much for a first time head coach.
Don’t forget skyler. I think the last QB to finish college at UF was Appleby and the last one recruited and finished was Brantley.
I wonder if this is one benefit of not getting a roster of 5 stars. They’re more likely to stick around and develop even if they don’t start by their fresh/soph year.
Are these all birth names? Sometimes they use nicknames.
It’s a learned experience. Probably called names as a kid.
Agreed. Franks was a great Gator, leader, and gave it 100% every game. Couldn’t ask for more.
There are plenty of UGA people who think a random ACC QB not named Lawrence is going to be more productive than Fromm, including the poster I replied too. I would reserve my opinion until at least the spring game.
I think FL folks are underestimating what we lost at FL. You can’t expect that Grimes and co can just fill in for Jefferson, Swain, and Hammond. These folks are some of the best route runners and catchers I’ve seen at Florida. The WR groups alternated drives and the offense dropped off a lot when the Grimes/Copeland group came in. Bob, can we get an article on this!!! With that said, I think Trask has better numbers next year just because he’s going to learn and mature and he did leave a bit on the table.
You roll the dice on a potential all time talent QB every single time.
Agree on Henderson. He seemed to have a much better year and is much more athletic than Fulton, confused why Fulton is consistently projected to go higher. Surprised Bowden and Wilson aren’t higher. I can’t imagine a scenario where Bowden doesn’t succeed in the NFL, too good of a football player.
It seems like GA folks are more down on Fromm than FL folks are on Franks. Strange as Fromm will go down as a Georgia great and Franks will be remembered along the likes of John Brantley and Jeff Driskel.
How is that surprising. 50% of the comments on this site are Ga folks, and probably 70% of the clicks.
Prior to this year, our WR recruiting was certainly lacking. This year has been standout and if we can get Shorter, we should be set for the next few years.
That was a direct reply to Pinebarren's question regarding how Smart recruits so well while not being dynamically compelling. Just quoting what other conference coaches might have said regarding Smart, since Pinebarren probably doesn't follow UGA recruiting as closely.
Those aren't my words. I've never met Kirby nor have I been on hand to see his interactions with recruits. Just answering Pinebarren's question regarding how Smart recruits so well, according to what other conference coaches have said.
I’m sure Tebow didn’t think twice about recruiting season when he (or his wife) scheduled his WEDDING and it makes sense that he would invite his former offensive coordinator. Re: Corch, we all know Smart wouldn’t attend Fromms wedding if it occurred during recruiting season, if he even got invited. But it would make sense not inviting the person that tanked your NFL prospects.
I guess we’re counting McElwain’s loss now to Mullen. Seems completely fair and expected from you guys.
LOL, great examples Driskell, NFL QB and transferred from UF. Two coaches ago. Grier, NFL QB and transferred from UF. Took steroids, Kirby probably keeps. Franks, QB flop and transferred from UF. Lost job as a senior, makes sense to transfer. Say what happened to UF’s top 2019 recruit and their top 2019 QB signee????? Accused of sexual assault, Kirby probably keeps until convicted in court, which never happens because most sexual assaults don't go to trial.
Probably something along the lines of pitching something different than what recruits thought it would be, lying to them during recruiting, and selling them on a dreams that aren’t true.
LSU loses so many players and coaches that I think they may lose a few games and fall out of the top ten but that doesn’t mean Orgeron isn’t a top coach.
Before Joe Brady, bringing in a new OC was thought to be a challenge, everyone having to learn a new offense. Now people are considering it an automatic upgrade.
Georgia (the state) has had some of the top QBs for a while now, dating back to Watson. What seems surprising is how few end up playing for UGA. But that seems to be turning around if they can get Vandergriff.
