Tweet O' The Day: Justin Scott-Wesley Making Strides

Justin Scott-Wesley is one of the fastest players we have on the team, but with all that speed comes a lot of raw receiving skills. He was a track star in high school and certainly has everything that it takes in that area to excel on the football field, but that isn’t everything that it takes to be a good receiver. Just ask any of the speed guys before him.

So what is Scott-Wesley (an early “Hyphman” candidate) doing to help himself along in the pass-catching department?

From everything I’ve heard (tweet above included), this freshman class seems to really have their head on straight. That’s refreshing considering the recent past of Georgia football off-season follies. I think a lot of that can be attributed to some better leadership at the top and maybe- just maybe- it’s also the type of kids that are finding their way to Athens.

I don’t want to disparage anyone in this little article, but we have recruited a lot of questionable characters lately, most of which have found their way someplace else. It’s good to think that these types are getting weeded out of the system (though I think there may be a few still to go) and we’re getting an influx of some kids with maybe a little character like S-W above.

  1. Along the same lines, McLendon says one of the things that he really likes about Crowell is that No. 1 really likes to practice. McLendon claims he observed Isaiah's love of practice even in high school.

    If you'll bring it in practice where there's little glamor and little reward, you'll bring it when it counts.

    I just don't think in the cards that CMR will be on the rubber chicken circuit next year pointing out plays where IC "decided not to block." Don't see it.
