Ellerbe vs. Ok State (Image: Hipple)
The SEC Coaches have voted, and they have provided us with their pre-season All-SEC teams. The Georgia Bulldogs placed nine players on the three team roster. Two of them (Dannell Ellerbe and Knowshon Moreno) were named first teamers.
Among the first, second and third team All-SEC squads, you'll find 11 players who attended high school in the State of Georgia. Only 3 of the 11 players enrolled at the University of Georgia. Some were players that UGA missed on, some had academic issues and others just didn't want to enroll in Athens.
Regardless, half an All-Star team could be filled from in-state. That doesn't mean we shouldn't recruit out of state. Six of the Dawgs' nine all-stars were out of state kids.
Georgia's Pre-season All-Stars are:
-- Knowshon Moreno (RB) - NJ
-- Dannell Ellerbe (LB) - NC
-- Matthew Stafford (QB) - TX
-- Mohamed Massaquoi (WR) - NC
-- Geno Atkins (DL) - FLA
-- Asher Allen (DB) - GA
-- Jeff Owens (DL) - FLA
-- Rennie Curran (LB) - GA
-- Brian Mimbs (P) - GA
Bulldogs I like for Post-Season All-SEC Awards (1st-3rd team):
-- Trinton Sturdivant (OL)
-- Reshad Jones (DB)
Biggest Miscarriage of Justice:
-- 3 UF defensive backs made 3rd team All-SEC. I'll give you Major Wright, but the other two? Get serious.
What were your thoughts on the list?
