- Laremy Tunsil is the biggest, baddest offensive lineman in the class, and
- Historically Richt has sucked left hind teat at getting good o-linemen

Of course, signing several more guys to compete for o-line spots wouldn't hurt either. Currently the Dawgs have a few other commitments for the offensive line - Josh Cardiello (Buford, early enrollee), Alden Bynum (Valdosta - Valwood, early enrollee) and Brandon Kublanow (Marietta, Walton HS). So this already stands to be a good o-line haul for Richt's staff. Cardiello projects as a guard or center, but likely trains to take over David Andrews' center spot eventually; Bynum has the height for tackle but will need to add some bulk; and Kublanow is going to be a nasty, ill-tempered guard. That's a good start, can it be great finish come February 6th?
Back to Tunsil, he just made his visit to Alabama ($) and is scheduled to get to Athens for his official there this weekend. However, the Georgia coaches aren't waiting; Bobo, Friend and Lily will visit Tunsil today for some extra face time. It has long been rumored that Tunsil is a silent commitment to Georgia. But that's no reason to rest on this kid. The chief competition is Bama and there's a host of others waiting in the wings. It appears that Tunsil is ours to lose. That can't happen.
Here's a good video to give you both some highlights of his play on the field and some insight into the person that Laremy is:
So the kid likes our food and loves to pull downfield and crush smaller defensive backs. Sounds like a perfect match for the Bulldogs.
