    UGA just signed McIntosh in 2019, Milton and Edwards last cycle along with cutting ties with Evans. I'm not in the know, but it's just kinda obvious he's not going to end up there at this point or it would have happened by now. They aren't hurting for RB's to have to run after him wanting him back.

    Well, if we get Evans it won’t be that Georgia’s cupboard is bare. They seem stacked. Seems possible georgia was betting their two other 2020 RBs were a better fit and enough and if I had to speculate I would say that went a long way towards their parting ways. IOW he didn’t feel wanted, even felt slighted.

    It’s good of our players dislike georgia, they should. But a vendetta is unnecessary and cuts both ways. I trust the coaches here and like all of us, if he comes, I hope he acts like a decent young man in all things and never entitled. Suck it up dude.

    I hope Brewster works his magic. From the outside, it looks like this kid just needs a father figure and a loving, family team atmosphere to get his head right.

    With talent come problems, and the Gators have had their share. No need to name names, as I think everyone remembers too well. With that said, Mr. Evans, I said it's great to be a Florida Gator!

    Not to point out the obvious but not all talent comes w problems. However, it only takes one bad apple to spoil the locker room. (Yes, you can call me captain cliche for the day!)

    Evans is very very good. Hopefully its only a lack of maturity that our coaches can reign in.

    Alleged character issues aside, he is absolutely, positively a take. Have you seen his video? The kid is dynamite.

    Sometimes it’s best to leave home and away from bad influences. Our last guy who was considered a headcase turned out to be our most dynamic player on campus. He also smacked his head coach on the ass lol

    You're right, I have no idea what I was looking at last night. That'll teach me to try to look something up on my own

    He's referring to Percy. It is a crap shoot sometimes. But imo you have to take a chance on Evans. I think it goes both ways. Some guys who seem fine pull Jalen Jones.

    Beyond locker room concerns I always worry about players with purported issues staying on the field especially before big games. I hated wondering if Marcus Thomas or Callaway for example were going to be eligible for our big games...

    Yes, was watching junior highlights this morning. How the hell was georgia landing two 5 stars and a 4 star in a class? I imagine our staff is learning much about Georgia’s tactics.

    Evans is lightning in a big SEC sized bottle. Hope he shows up with an open mind and a packed suitcase. He has the natural ability plus the speed to make this season’s RB room better than ‘19 IMO. He’s another CoCaptain for
    the Georgia game along with Cox and Braun.

    I'm not sure how this play's out as he's an incredible head case for many reasons. He's more unstable than Manual in many ways and that young man needs a mentor and discipline very badly.
    He is an amazing football player and athlete no doubt!!
    Getting sent home the day before the Texas HS state title game says A Lot!!
    Not sure how this shakes out...

    Candy has made his comments and Bobby is not his usual all in for this kid. Candy has some inside knowledge and Bobby is all over the net looking for info.

    As of what we know now and the caveat that I don't know the young man or his family, I'd pass... I'm just basing it on public knowledge, 5 stars or not. Look everyone can't be Brandon Siler but we don't need a fire starter in the locker room....I
    If the young man is wanting to be a better man and grow and is understanding the drama and kid games are over.... Than I'd take him.
