Georgia offers fewer scholarships for walk-ons in 2013

Teammates rushed to congratulate seven Georgia walk-ons who were awarded scholarships a year ago after coach Mark Richt announced the news in a team meeting.

There was no such scene this year. Richt gave out “a few” scholarships in private.

“I’ve decided not to make any announcements this year because that’s another bittersweet day,” Richt said. “For some guys, it’s a great celebration and for other guys it’s a heartbreaking day because they were hoping they were one of the guys to get it.”

Georgia added 31 signees in its latest recruiting class, so there weren’t as many scholarships left over for walk-ons.

The walk-ons who got scholarships last year and returned this year: receiver Rhett McGowan, safety Connor Norman, fullback Merritt Hall, tailback Brandon Harton, linebacker Kosta Vavlas and cornerback Blake Sailors from Oconee County.
