Mark Richt told ESPNU today that his team’s 10-win season had a positive impact on today’s class, but he expects even better things in the future:
“I think (the 2011 turnaround) affected the class in a very positive way. I think it’s actually going to affect next year’s class even moreso, because now’s the when the 2013 class starts to fall in love with Georgia or whoever they fall in love with. And with the momentum that we have from a great season last year, most everybody back on both sides of the ball, lotta great things happening at Georgia… that I think it’s going to be a very attractive place for these young men. So I think what happened this season will probably benefit next year’s class more than it did this year.”
Richt didn’t even mention UGA’s 2012 schedule which most SEC fans outside the Peach State rank as the breeziest of breezes.
