Guess Who's Back?

ATHENS - After leaving the Bulldogs the day fall camp began, freshman Dexter Morant is back with the team.

Morant got back to Manning, SC and realized leaving the team was a mistake.

The freshman outside linebacker called coach Mark Richt Friday night to see if he could return to the team.

"I talked to coach (Todd) Grantham, and I talked to the seniors about it and everybody thinks Dexter should be allowed on the team," Richt said.

Two days had gone by since Morant left the team because of homesickness. He began texting teammates, and admitted to them he wanted to return to the team.

"I kind of knew the call was coming because a couple of the guys told me yesterday at flex, ‘Hey Dexter text me and told me he made a mistake.,'" Richt said.

Morant must go through the five days of acclimation, and was limited to only shorts and a helmet today as his teammates worked in full pads.
