*Top 100 Overall players in the nation regardless of position 9 for Kirby !
Full roster of 85 on-scholarship today. 16 seniors on-scholarship leave and 4 abdicated their scholarship which is then minus 20 but Mark Richt gave J.R. Reed a scholarship to transfer from Tulsa and he is sitting-out this year and gets a Scholarship too for 2017.
SCHOLARSHIP CLASS BREAKDOWN :
2 Redshirt Sophomores
19 Sophomores – 4 abdicating their scholarship
6 Redshirt Freshmen

2 Walk-ons owed a Scholarship
85 Scholarships – NO OTHER NUMBER
J.R. Reed Mark Richt gave scholarship to for 2017 and don’t forget Rodrigo Blankenship is not on scholarship. 85 minus 16 seniors is 69 minus 4 abdicating their scholarship is 65 plus J.R. Reed is 66 plus 19 commitments is 85 exactly at FULL 85 SCHOLARSHIPS. If Aaron Davis does as he says and does not come back 2017 then Kirby has one scholarship available and Dominick Sanders said he is leaving so that is 2 scholarships available.

Rico Johnson medical disqualified doesn’t count as scholarship
I believe I recall Mark Richt provided a scholarship NEXT YEAR 2017 to J.R. Reed who had to sit-out this year. This is a Scholarship committed for 2017 by Mark Richt. Sophomore. 6′ 195 db played Tulsa 2015. Dad Jake Reed NFL not J.R. Reed NFL db. 63
63 plus 19 commitments is 82 of the 85 scholarships and there are some walk-ons whom Kirby will HAVE TO provide a scholarship to too. This assumes Aaron Davis leaves and Dominick Sanders said he too is thinking of leaving so that would be 62 on-scholarship plus 19 commitments for 81.
Rodrigo Blankenship RF K still walk-on N. B.
Trent Frix Junior is still walk-on
Christian Payne Junior is still walk-on
Prather Hudson Freshman Redshirted 2016 Preferred Walk-on
Tim Hill Senior db Played this season
Mitchell Wasson F K still walk-on
William Ham Redshirt Sophomore K still walk-on played 3 games
Nick Moore Sophomore had tackle last year played 3 games 2016 walk-on still.
Steven Van Tiflin redshirt sophomore WR played one game 2016 walk-on.
Thomas Swilley Junior OG played one game 2015 one game 2016 walk-on.
I believe I recall we provided Keyon Brown Redshirt Sophomore 2016 a Scholarship and he has played in one game 2016.
I believe I recall we provided Mirko Jurkovic Redshirt Freshman 2016 a Scholarship but he has not played in 2016 and would appear to have loads in front of him at TE.
I believe I recall Mark Richt provided a scholarship 2016 to Joseph Ledbetter to get his younger brother to sign with us too but he is no longer playing with us this year so that is over.
Daniel Gothard Freshman on roster preferred walk-on still – has not played 2016.
85 – 4 on Scholarship abdicating is 81 – 16 seniors is 65 plus J.R. Reed is 66 for 2017 plus 19 commitments = 85 EXACTLY. And if Dominick Sanders leaves 84.
I have no idea why anyone would want to TRY to confuse you about scholarships available when discussing recruiting. There only is one number. That is 85. You either have no scholarship available for recruiting or you do.
I can understand why Kirby would want to confuse the issue. And make no mistake about it this IS THE ISSUE.
Seth Emerson SAYS HE HAS A LIST but he is the ONLY sportswriter to TRY to write about where we are on Scholarships today whom it is we lose and whom it is we don’t lose and then ALL THE BLOGS brag on Kirby’s recruiting with 19 commitments THE OTHER BLOGS stating THEY THINK Kirby will sign 29.
There would have to be A LOT OF attrition between now and signing 29. I can tell you that just as plainly as I can
LIST THE 85 SCHOLARSHIPS for you by name and class.
And I can and have told you who the top 50 of of this running list I keep here are on my blog of scholarships because it is MY PREMISE that you can’t talk about recruiting WITHOUT KNOWING what your scholarships are of the one single limit of 85 at any one time of which today WE ARE FULL all 85.
Seth Emerson why can’t you LIST the 85 scholarships for Georgia as our beat writer ?
I certainly did the research which sparked your article yesterday on the topic and the article you wrote before that too on this.
But you cannot list the on-scholarship players for Georgia ?
Why not Seth Emerson ?
I certainly CAN.
For MANY YEARS all we had to do was to go to a site at Rivals and look-up who was on-scholarship and who wasn’t. True the list every year was wrong but it listed the players BY NAME SETH EMERSON so you could easily ferret-out the current true list.
In other words Seth Rivals all these years prior kept a running list of on-scholarship at Georgia by class. I looked at it 100 times a season every season. They kept their list up-to-date. Who cares if it has an error on it when it LISTS THE ON-SCHOLARSHIP at Georgia by NAME ? For all these years Seth we all have been able to look at the Rivals’ List and easily know that this guy changed status.
Now there is NO ONE with a running list EXCEPT FOR ME.
By my count Kirby can sign 22 and has 19 commitments including one signed. So Kirby can sign 3 more new commitments and I think Kirby had therefore an early enrollee spot for Toniel Carter. So my read on this is that Kirby did NOT WANT Toniel Carter. Therefore you can add this to the list of the top 2 dozen biggest blunders by Kirby his first season coaching anywhere. It stands at 25 blunders Kirby 2016 with more time remaining for another.
Kirby dropped from # 2 recruiting class to # 5 by his treatment of Toniel Carter who clearly wanted to be here January 6 early enrollee. And Kirby gave Tom Herman a huge big boost in his new job and made Texas a better team.
This will be used against Kirby in RECRUITING his entire tenure at Georgia. This is TYPICAL of the manner Kirby treats folks. You have seen it ALL YEAR on ALL HIS PLAYERS. Texas is a huge fertile recruiting ground. If we can’t recruit in Texas over this this will be even bigger than Kirby not wanting the guy after HE TOLD THE KID HE DID. This is what is being said and although Kirby said he didn’t have an early enrollee spot Kirby certainly does and could have if he wanted to. So he didn’t want him AFTER he told the kid he did. I did Kirby. I would have had Toniel Carter as one of your elusive you can never figure-out and are trying to find your top 50 players for 2017 season Kirby.
Kirby I don’t give a shit what you do just don’t lie to ME. Don’t hide behind the I can’t talk about it and then talk about it and LIE. You didn’t want him once Nick Chubb and Sony Michel said they both are coming-back because you MISTREATED BOTH OF THEM ALL YEAR Kirby so they have unfinished business. You would not have played Toniel Carter Kirby this season. You will RUE this decision Kirby. You just don’t care what people think. Well this ONE is going to REALLY HURT you the rest of your LIFE in recruiting and Toniel Carter has already shown more class than you Kirby and so too did his brother and legal guardian.
Cut off your nose to spite your face.
I would love to hear what Dell McGee has to say on this. And knowing Dell McGee I will.
Kirby just shot himself in the foot.
