I'm plagiarizing a funny comment I read by a Dawg fan: "I totally understand why Grandaddy wants him at UF. He's a bail bondsman, and setting up a shop in Gainesville with football connections means he will be printing money within 2 years."
After committing to the Bulldogs live on ESPNU this morning, Josh Harvey-Clemons still hasn’t sent in his Letter of Intent to UGA. That’s because the star linebacker’s grandfather hasn’t signed the LOI yet. And as Harvey-Clemons’ legal guardian, Gramps has to ink the pact to make it all legal-like.
The player’s uncle, Roy Hart, tells the AJC that his nephew’s decision surprised most people in the family. They expected the Valdosta native to sign with Florida or Florida State. ESPN reports that the family preferred Florida.
So will 51-year-old Woodrow Clemons eventually sign his grandson’s LOI? “… he’s going to sign, from what I understand,” said Hart. Okay, but will that be today? “I don’t know. I don’t know where his grandfather is. He has kind of been missing in action, so to speak. I can’t get him on the telephone.”
CBSSports.com reports — via a source — that his family is “advising (Harvey-Clemons) to reconsider attending Florida before making a final decision.”
Mark Richt has said he’s not worried about losing Harvey-Clemons. We’ll see.
