Once upon a time, you could count on somebody committing at the Georgia Tech or UGA spring game.
It didn’t happen this year — well, at least not publicly.
Surely, somebody whispered in the ear of Georgia Tech’s Paul Johnson at Saturday’s T-Day or UGA’s Mark Richt at last weekend’s G-Day and said, “Coach, I’m coming here. I’m just not ready to go public with it yet.”
Why none “officially” at either in-state spring game?
We have plenty of theories:
Maybe a certain kid has promised other college coaches that he would visit their respective schools later this spring/summer before announcing?
Maybe the prospect wasn’t able to attend either game to talk to Johnson or Richt in person. After all, it was tough scheduling — with T-Day played Easter weekend and G-Day during spring break for many.
Maybe the prospect prefers to announce at a press conference at a later date. Or at a table with a bunch of hats in front of TV cameras.
Maybe, simply, nobody was ready (Unlikely).
Maybe later today or tomorrow, we’ll find out someone did commit at T-Day; or even last weekend at G-day — and they are ready to go public with it.
No reason for followers of Georgia Tech or UGA to worry.
It was just that, once upon a time, you could count on it for the spring games.
Not this year.
