Luella’s Bonner favors Michigan, Clemson

By DARRYL MAXIE / dmaxie@ajc.com

Clemson and Georgia Tech could make things interesting for Luella receiver/defensive back Detrick Bonner.

He had 11 offers as of Wednesday, favoring Michigan the most. But it’s clear he hasn’t made a decision and Clemson, where he has  camped, made an impression on the 6-foot, 165-pound receiver.

“The fact that they gave me my own tour, they showed more love, I guess,” Bonner told the AJC.

He added that if he were to get an offer from Georgia Tech, it would make him consider it seriously. For now, though, Bonner plans to camp at Auburn in July.

Sorry Bonner, but GT should be shutting down recruiting for DB’s very shortly.

WTF???

LOL, Tech had better go recruit some DB’s that are about 6′3 or 6′4.

Tech found a gem at DB last year with Jemea Thomas. Watch for him in a few years

What was that about all the dawg fans being ticked about Tech fans always posting on the Tech blogs? Let’s see. I look at this and the first 2 or 3 comments are from dawg fans and then 2 more of the last 4 comments are from dawg fans. What hypocritical punks!

GT...... Seriously?WTF

You know, it’s hard to b*tch about Tech fans on our blogs when you clowns are over here showing a little “class”! Read the article about the kid and move on! No wonder RAMBLE ON is always spouting on the UGA blog. Grow up and give it a rest.

On this kid…warning bells went off when he started talking about his “personal tour” and the Tiger coaches “showing him some love”. Let him take his ego to Clemson, he’ll play for more head coaches than he will play in ACC Championship games.

Hey opiner, PLEASE DON’T but if you venture over to the UGA page then you will see that this article is posted under recruiting. You will also notice that the title doesn’t have GT in it so it’s not like we went over to your side looking for something to bash. If you want somebody to get mad at its AJC for posting this where we would read it.

P.S. Tech football is a joke.
That is all.

Opiner, STFU……you are on this board posting as well. The real story here is that Maxie pad has a cush job. Sit on arse, pull from Rivals site and put on the AJC. Go to snack machine, come back and repeat

Are the Tech fans now claiming the entire Recruiting Blog as their own?

Opiner, the AJC is not without blame in the posting of Georgia & GT folks posting on each others blogs. They have this blog linked on the UGA page, and I imagine most of the UGA stories are linked on the
GT page. I believe it is called pot stirring (or selling papers if you perfer).

With that said…
THWGT!!!!

Well, we now know that Mr. Bonner is most definitely going to a “Tech.”

But it’s VIRGINIA TECH!!! Why? Simple. The kid wants to win championships!

Oh, and “Diamond Dawg” crowing about recruiting rankings just shows that you don’t know spit about college football. Do you know who assigns those “rankings”? A small handful of nerds sitting behind computers somewhere who have never played or coached a down of football in their lives. Yet they make very nice livings because schmucks like you pay money to subscribe to their services so that they can tell you how GRRRRREAT your recruiting classes are!
