The format for the chat was as follows: A.J. Bryant was on the telephone with Southeastern Recruiting Analyst Scott Kennedy. Scott fielded questions from members of the Dawgpost in the chat room, and relayed them to A.J.. A.J. then answered, and Scott relayed the answers back to the members of the Dawgpost via the chat room.
