Chaney to MSU

A couple of days late on this one. Congrats to Chaney, I hope he has a successful career.

Georgia's 2005 recruiting class has certainly seen better days (EDSBS should probably update that count at some point). Signs point to a huge class this year – as many as 30. Georgia already has a number of recruits planning to enroll in January (thus counting against 2005's total), and there is some talk Corry Moon will join them. I'm not sure how much room there is to fit in under last year's class; UGA signed 17 and was expecting two more players to arrive from Hargrave and I believe had room for 15 or 16 when the dust settled. With 6 casualties (Moon, Dewberry, Chaney, Sesay all couldn't get it; Lang and Bryant opted to go elsewhere) and one player-incident being investigated (Tavares “TKO” Kearney), Georgia is going to have some room.

Albert Hollis II gave up his scholarship, so that's room for a January signee. I'm sorry he never got to play last year – he had a rough career battling some devastating injuries. I don't understand why Richt didn't get him in because there was ample opportunity, even just 1 special teams play, but then Richt figured on having him back one more year (he was a lock for medical hardship). And there's always some attrition – juniors who go pro or players who leave (Michael Cooper). I figure Georgia to get as many as 4 players in under 2005, but it could wind up being less or even more.
