Superstar pass rusher Naim Mustafaa from Alpharetta became Richt's 20th commitment yesterday when he let the Georgia coaches know he wanted to be a Bulldog instead of a Yellow Jacket. Mustafaa's dad was a Tech cornerback who later went on to a decent NFL career. The kid was considered a lean towards North Avenue.
The benefits of this development are multi-faceted. First and foremost Mustafaa is a prime pass rusher. At 6'4" and 235 lbs, he projects pretty well as an outside threat. He had numerous offers, most of which really started flowing in last season. Georgia's recruitment of Mustafaa reads like a roller coaster. Things cooled as quickly as they heated before Garner reestablished connection and Grantham sealed the deal.
And therein lies the rub. Here's a Tech progeny that should've been a slam dunk for Coach PJ BiggerFish. Mustafaa is made for the 3-4 defense, his dad is a former player and they live just up Hwy 400 from "campus".
Is Al "AARP" Groh an improvement over Wommack, his predecesor? How could he not be really. But he's no match for my kid on NCAA Football. Much less Todd Damn Grantham on a visit to Athens.
*insert "this one's a done deal" pronouncement*
Welcome Mustafaa. Say it again.
