David Marvin from Wofford while Wofford has not been very good he has personally. Senior said NOT to be Walk-On but On-Scholarship however the Hell that is possible. We’re 4 over on Scholarships for 2017 and he is On-Scholarship. You don’t do that and not use him. So THIS is your Kicker. He is a great athlete a great soccer player actually a fine baseball player son of 2 professional athletes from Charlotte would be kicker and punter for most any team in America Transfer as a Graduate of Wofford gets his Masters degree from UGA this 2017 season. I would not be surprised to see he plays in the NFL.
Cameron Nizialek Senior Graduate Transfer 2017 Walk-On 44.8 yd punt 53.6 yd K-O one year eligibility
Trent Frix Senior 2017 was On-Scholarship 2016 with Kirby himself August 2016 awarding it to him as a Walk-On at the time. Trent then played 12 games including bowl 2016 and has 2 Varsity letters UGA and Academic Honor Roll. This blog here UGA Thomas Brown . wordpress.com reported that Trent Frix WAS given a Scholarship for 2016 by Kirby in August 2016. Whether he keeps that for 2017 would seem to me to be up to the terms of providing it by Kirby. I can not document that Trent Frix is or is not on Scholarship for 2017 but it would seem he like some others here should be. I have not read Kirby say Trent Frix has a Scholarship for 2017 or that he does not.
Christian Payne Senior Walk-On 6′ 1″ 242 lbs. Starter
Glenn Welch Walk-On Redshirt Senior
Thomas Swilley Senior Walk-On 2017 OG played one game 2015 one game 2016 walk-on 6′ 3″ 317 lbs. Cedar Shoals
Billy Seward Redshirt Senior Walk-on 2017 redshirted 2013 played 2014 2015 2016 Center 6’ 3” 269 lbs. Oconee
Nick Moore Junior Walk-On FB 2017 Brookwood had tackle 2015 played 4 games 2016 walk-on still.
Steven Van Tiflin Redshirt Junior Walk-On 2017 WR played one game 2016 walk-on 6′ 1″ 207 lbs. Michigan
Keyon Brown OLB Redshirt Junior 2017 who may be on Scholarship 2017. 6′ 3″ 257 lbs. Florida. I believe I recall we provided Keyon Brown Redshirt Sophomore 2016 a Scholarship and he had played in one game 2016. So I did NOT say that Keyon Brown is not on Scholarship but that I said that he WAS provided a Scholarship for 2016 and played in a game 2016 for Kirby. I have quite a few I am listing as Walk-Ons here rather than list them as On-Scholarship whom I feel ARE OWED a Scholarship because I can not document he is On-Scholarship for 2017 – Keyon Brown is one of these – not one of the 85 I can document ARE On-Scholarship 2017 I can document but one of the beat writers should ask him if he is. I think he is. Rather critical if he is or is not.
There are two main facts about after this 2017 season and they are one that it will NOT go next year like it did this year in NFL Draft Eligible Georgia Bulldogs when only 1 elected to do so. And two the 2018 Recruiting Rankings will NOT be like the 2017 Recruiting Rankings for Kirby because they can NOT be not with only 18 seniors and him 4 over on On-Scholarship players for 2017 as we speak.
So if you are looking for momentum in Recruiting Rankings for 2018 like that of 2017 for Kirby you are barking-up the wrong tree.
This is going to be the smallest recruiting class for The Georgia Bulldogs EVER 2018 unless a ton of these eligible for the NFL Draft 2018 declare for it.
There is going to be a LOT of attrition because so many have been promised so much and others are OWED or due a Scholarship who just will not get one.
We over-signed by 4.
