What it all means: What's the one thing you notice about the above list of non-committed-yet-offered players? All but one, Robinson, is from out of state. It's been hard to get a gauge on where Georgia is with recruiting linebackers. There are at least two out-of-this-world linebackers the Bulldogs already know about for 2009, so they may be thinking: "Hey, let's not rush the 2008 backers." Charles White and Rennie Curran are very fast, and both have proven their worth during their high school season and at all-star games. Georgia may only sign one linebacker this year, and be ok with that. If they can pull Robinson from Georgia-loving Gwinnett County anyone else they get would be gravy.
