Richt and Bobo Must Be Good Recruiters

Something I wanted to touch on last week, but I was vacationing on Friday and couldn’t get to it. 

Mike Bobo and Mark Richt must be excellent recruiters.  Why do I come to that conclusion, you ask?  It is quite simple.  No, it is not all the top 10 recruiting classes they have brought in.  It is not the NFL talent that has been produced.  It is not the fact that Coach Richt convinced all draft eligible juniors on defense  to return for their senior seasons.  No, I point to the recruitment of Hutson Mason as the reason Richt and Bobo can do so well at convincing young men to come to the University of Georgia.

When Hutson Mason signed his name on the dotted line, there was a QB battle going on at UGA.  Aaron Murray and Zach Mettenberger were both competing for the starting job.  Murray was the favorite, but Mettenberger was making strides to make it a legit competition.  Now, no disrespect to Hutson, and certainly not trying to disrespect a current player.  But both Murray and Mettenberger were fighting it out for the starting  job when Mason signed.  Murray was listed as the 3rd best QB coming out of HS that year and Mettenberger was listed as the 11th best.  Both competed in the Manning “Elite 11 QB Camp.” 

There were reports that Mason was unhappy with his amount of playing time and he was considering a transfer.  Now it was announced that he will redshirt to have some class seperation between him and Murray.

Mason signed on knowing he would be the thrid string guy.  He was a 3 star QB.  I don’t understand what changed from the time he signed to now.  Whatever BS Bobo told him, it must have been convincing.  This is what I would like to tell him:

    You are right. They are & they did an excellent job of recruiting, especially with those already on Campus.

    Parade All-American, Georgia Gatorade POY, AP Sports Writer POY, State passing record holder. Your right those 3 stars mean a great deal! Maybe he loves Georgia and is willing to wait his turn. Write about him again 3 years from now when he is done. Maybe he will fail, maybe he will succeed. Give him time to let his entire career play out. That is only fair.
