Some bad news for UGA

UGA got some bad recruiting news on Saturday.

Tramel Terry, one of the team’s top commitments for 2013, suffered a serious knee injury on the first play of Saturday’s Shrine Bowl all-star game between the top high school football players in South Carolina and North Carolina.

Terry, the RB-WR from Goose Creek (S.C.) High School, may have torn his ACL, according to ESPN’s Miller Safrit.

The 5-foot-11, 190-pound Terry is an early high school graduate and will enroll at UGA next month, but his status for spring practice is unknown due to rehabilitation from the injury. Terry was expected to contribute immediately as a backup running back and slot wide receiver.

It was heart-breaking news for Terry, who had twice committed to UGA and decided a few weeks ago that he would go ahead and stick with the Bulldogs rather than to flip to Clemson. Terry was named as South Carolina’s Mr. Football.

Richt won’t play any games with Terry like some coaches. He will be allowed to come in January as planned and rehab at Georgia. I guess he will Red Shirt for 2013 so he can get back to full strength.

slot to recruit someone else.

I hope we will still keep him. I doubt Coach Richt would revoke a scholarship. Hopefully, when we comes back, he’ll be an All-American. Stay positive. Go Dawgs!

That sucks for the young man. 1st Play. I know he wanted to compete but damn that is tough to know you have/had a scholly and risk losing it to play in an All Star game. he will get the year to rehab so he should be OK. He is not very tall for a WR in the SEC or the NFL.

The honorable thing to do and what CMR will do is stand behind the young man and welcome him with open arms to DAWG Nation. He’ll red shirt this year and be all the better his 2nd year.

This kid doesn’t have to worry about his scholarship- he commited to Georgia and Coach Richt will without question honor his commmitment! That’s the kind of Coach he is, and I’m proud to be a fan.

Get well Tramel Terry and come back strong. We all are rooting for a speedy and healthy recovery.Can’t wait to see you healthy and well and contributing at Georgia.

My prayers are with you and you are a “DAWG”… so get well soon!

Take that red-shirt, get your knee well & come out like a gangbuster in ‘14!!

Best to you in your rehab!!

This kid best be checking the small print on that “offer”. If it doesn’t say “committable” with a signed seal from a notary of the public, then he might as well forget UGA. Don’t believe me just ask Kelsi Griffin.

Terry will still be a Dawg. Mark Richt won’t pull his offer. There’s still a few honorable people in CFB, and Mark Richt is one of them.

I expect richt will honor the offer. He may do like Saban and ask him to delay enrollment while his knee rehabs. But like Saban he will still at least honor the committment though there is no written rule that he has to. The dawg fans do love to lie and say that saban cut a rb after a knee injury. He did not. He asked the player to delay enrollment by 6 months to ensure a full knee recovery.

I agree with GTM – his UGA offer is good but I wonder if certain kids initially commit to UGA knowing their scholarships are good even if they get hurt then flip around signing day.

Get well soon Mr Terry. Of course you still have a Scholarship at UGA. Take note Montravious, Reuben, etc. Commit to the Dawgs now. Like insurance against an injury. Proud we have Coach Richt

Two things: 1) History shows that other recruits have had injuries of which Richt and UGA have honored their scholarships. This is why a lot of high school coaches and parents respect Richt. 2) In regards to the comments about Griffin, he tried to commit after there was no room for his position (actually, they have two left and there are two kids that are rated higher on their board – to be honest, this is what happens when kids want to play the waiting game). With that being said, Georgia does screw up with the communication piece. It has happened before with kids wanting to commit and the coaches saying sorry (See Carver-Columbus a couple of years ago) However, Terry has been committed – different circumstances.

I wouldn’t say Richt would never pull a scholly. If he only had 25 and had 28 top players he wanted I would bet he would pull the offer. Richt has had more to offer the last few years and we know the issues that cause that to happen.

The sad truth is he will get one year to rehab and prove himself . If he can’t make the 85 man roster by spring of 2014……bye, bye scholarship. They don’t let guys who can’t make the grade stay on scholarship. Good luck to the young man .

Hey Blackoutanyone?

UGA pulled the scholarship on K. Griffin because his grades are too low to qualify. That apparently isn’t a consideration at usc.

CMR will ABSOLUTELY honor Trammel’s scholarship.

Something that bumer would NEVER do (History has proven that to be true over and over again)

Score Check….some that has to do with the FACT Bama has more top rated kids that want to play for them than available scholarships. UGa has lost many players the last few years over ISSUES and has many Openings to offer Scholarships to players. Is your brain able to understand the Factual Numbers?

Not true Score Check….your own people on here said he was too small for nose and too big for end in TG’s 3-4 scheme. Terry will be fine, noboby is pulling any scholatship and if he works hard(Lattimore)….HE’LL HAVE A GREAT CAREER.

So do I. Shame some guys just don’t ever seem to get healthy. Still, UGA stuck by him and he ended up running track. He was a very impressive guy off the field as well.

Good luck to Terry. Hope the rehab goes well and you get back on the field soon.

I remember Hollis quite well myself.

Early in the Richt era, #5 recruit in the nation.

California kid. Catastrophic knee injury in spring before he ever had a chance to get on the field.

Stayed with the team 4 more years, graduated, recovered enough to participate in the Red&Black Spring Game.

Here’s a quote from him 2/23/2007…

“Everybody took care of me when I was at Georgia. I can’t complain because I was always treated like a top flight Div I-A athlete. You would’ve thought that I was the star of the program the way they treated me.”

Good for him that his is committed to UGA, finally. CMR, unlike a certain buttheadfromAlabamastan, and lots of other coaches, won’t throw him under the bus.

Tramel, get fixed up, do your rehab and be learning the system during that time and we will still see you on the field making the Dawg Nation proud.
WOOF!!!

I was born in Athens and graduated from UGA. I live in Summerville now about 20 miles from where Terry goes to High School. He is a great kid and we are lucky to have him. It’s hard to say no to the state schools like USC and Clemson — I’m sure he kept getting pressure to go to one of those. But in the end, he kept his commitment — and that is what matters. His High School coach is a great one too — he used to be a head coach at a college and an assistant at Clemson — so his players are well prepared to play in college.
