Totally agree. Hell they were still giving Locklear and Jahmir a series or two up until the Vandy game. Drove me batshat crazy!!! I hope we can settle on 5 next year and let that 5 play, even through the mistakes and mental lapses.
It will be interesting to see where Ryan Johnson lands. From a structural engineering standpoint, Texas, VA Tech and Illinois have outstanding post graduate programs for structural engineers if he's looking for something in particular. He got a B.S. in 3 years and is working on his masters. I wonder if he'll get his doctorate or an MBA?
We have lots of DB's coming back and maybe Buccanhan
Have Palmer, Brandon , Keyton and Gibbs and Cedrick at Wr's,
usually in practice you pretty much now the pecking order.
He may have seen the path to playing time was not in the cards.
Ryan Johnson has really struggled... not to say he can’t improve but when he was playing a lot of snaps a year or two ago we had an awful oline that was getting abused.... him, Tatum, Richmond, and others were part of one of the worst olines in VOLS history....
So if he goes it’s bc he’s just getting passed up by better players so that makes sense... but if he sticks around and improves then maybe he can play and help some??? I can understand it either way...
But Means? He just got here... really hope he stays...
Pruitt needs to get on Xferportal.com and put an experienced WR or two in his shopping cart. We may be pretty good w Palmer, Keyton, Gibbs, Tillman, and Johnson next year. But with one true FR so far verbaled, we will be thin. And 2021. We need another elite WR signee and an xfer or two IMO.
That's the wrong way to look at it don't be calling Ryan a quitter. He's a VFL in all likelihood he was encouraged by the staff to do this so they could make room on the roster for someone else more talented. Even if that isn't the case it is what it is. Pruitt is on record as being fully supportive of players who have graduated being able to transfer if they want and play somewhere else immediately. You cant take a cheap shot at these guys like that. You're talking about someone else's life choices and their future forget about yourself and football games for a second.
RJ is leaving with both a BS and MS in Civil Engineering. He isn't going to the NFL, if he can get a PhD funded at a better engineering program with his 5th year that is a very smart decision. Calling him a quitter is incredibly selfish on your part.
