Ogletree Movin' on UP!

Alec Ogletree is moving closer to the line of scrimmage. And the way it came about makes you wonder if this wasn't negotiated prior to Coach Olivadotti's move to Athens...(j/k)
Ogletree’s size (6-foot-3, 224-pounds) brought forth questions regarding where he would play as a heralded incoming freshman out of Newnan High School. Although he remained at safety last season, many speculated the move to linebacker was inevitable.
That move has now been made.
Newly hired linebackers coach Kirk Olivadotti requested Ogletree be moved into his unit shortly after his arrival last week. Defensive coordinator Todd Grantham granted that wish.
This move was inevitable. I like the idea of putting defensive playmakers closer to the ball. And it will pay off in spades as long as our secondary makes great strides this Spring and Summer.

Hope Richard Samuel gets his shot.
