The 6-foot-2, 210-pound Moody said he was invited to Tennessee’s Orange and White game on Saturday by the Volunteers. ”Me and my dad are planning on going up there,” Moody said. “They talked liked they were going to offer me a scholarship. I don’t know. I guess we’ll see. They just want to meet me in person and everything.”

“Coach Thompson said they need some linebackers really bad,” Moody said. “I’m definitely very interested in Tennessee. It wouldn’t be bad to go there and be able to play against Georgia every year. That would be something, taking out some of my feelings against the team that released me. I think it would be fun.”

Moody is ranked as the nation’s No. 8 outside linebacker by Scout, and No. 17 by Rivals.

I think it is embarrassing that we would take him on

He has a LONG, LONG rap sheet from not just his team but his city and anyone around him will tell you that. Whether it is constant fights, threats, missing meetings, etc....nothing new, by the way

The fact that Richt cut loose completely so early says something when they keep on people like Odell Thurman and others.

What makes me concerned more than UGA letting him go is why UF or Bammer hasn't sniffed at him since he was let go... They both were after him before, why not now?

and if he doesn't behave, he's off the team. I see nothing wrong with letting a guy try to play football.

IMO Kiffin knows what he is doing, and has proven if you don't follow the rules, you are gone. In Kiffin we Trust!

If he doesn't behave, he's gone. Who cares about his rap sheet? He'll either behave, play football here or flip burgers.

I have never read or heard anything like that about this kid. Where are you finding it?

“Dexter is like any other 17-year-old student-athlete that has remarkable athleticism,” [Boyd English, the principal at Emanuel County Institute] told me. “Our job as educators is to prepare Dexter for the future, for life after high school. Dexter’s a great kid and I don’t want things portrayed negatively about one of my students. Dexter’s not a trouble-maker and he’s going to have some other great opportunities.”

Very talented. He was a high school All-American. I read an article recently that said Moody was a little underrated by the scouts and was projected by some to make a better college player than Washaun Ealey, who was his high school teammate and was rated higher than Moody. Ealey broke the Georgia State record for most TD's scored in a season. It was previously held by Herschel Walker with 45 and Darius Walker with 46. Ealey had 58 his junior year. So, for Moody to possibly make a better college player than Ealey, that is saying something. This kid could really fill a gap for us at the LB position.

I agree, put them on a short leash. If they mess up again, they're gone.

I stand corrected... Did they not offer him before this fiasco?
