As [University of Georgia Defensive Coordinator] Todd Grantham gets re-acquainted with the recruiting trail, he has developed a pretty central philosophy:
“The first thing I ask is: Can the guy help us beat Florida,” Grantham, the Georgia defensive coordinator, said on Wednesday. “I mean truthfully, because that’s who we have to beat to win the SEC. And off the guys that I feel like we’re recruiting and have committed to us, I can say yes off of that. So I’m really excited off those guys.”
But what about South Carolina – which won the division this year and might be the favorite next year?
“I’m playing percentages,” Grantham said.
(Or perhaps Grantham is still riled that Steve Spurrier took a dig at him earlier this year. But I’ll take him at his word.)
