Georgia LB Ramik Wilson flies under radar at media days

HOOVER, Ala. | The three players representing each team at SEC Media Days go to their separate corners of the big ballroom at the Hyatt Regency Birmingham and hold court for about 20 minutes.

Heisman Trophy candidate Todd Gurley drew an predictably large contingent Thursday that wanted to talk to the playmaking running back.

Receiver Chris Conley, fresh off the release of his Star Wars fan film that has generated plenty of buzz on the Internet, was a magnet for those who wanted to talk about that or NCAA reform since Conley is a leader nationally for student-athlete issues.

Linebacker Ramik Wilson was OK being the other guy, even if he was the SEC’s leading tackler last season.

“They’re talking more,” Wilson said. “That’s fine.”

Gurley told reporters Wilson gets his tackles in practice because he “cheats sometimes,” because he knows the offensive plays.

Said Wilson: “They run the ball away from me and I go get them.”
