Brandon Boykin would not be on the Georgia football team this season if it hadn't been for a well-timed snowstorm last year.I'll buy a snow shovel if it's necessary to keep these guys in Athens an extra year or two.
The Georgia senior cornerback and special teams star said on Tuesday that "I kind of had my mind made up at one point" to pro after last season. But when he returned to Athens for a team meeting, the snow and ice storm struck the area.
“I got stuck here for a couple days. And just over those couple days I started talking to coach and all the coaches and started thinking of things," Boykin said. "I felt it was kind of a sign from God.”
