    Dismissed UGA / JUCO DL Jonathan Taylor Enrolls at Alabama

    I had not seen this posted as of yet. The kid's a good football player, and with coach's reputation of being able to get kids on the right path, this could be a good pick-up if it gets to that point.http://recruiting.blog.ajc.com/2014/...it-to-alabama/

    Re: Dismissed UGA football player to take official visit to Alabama

    Well, if he was in the NFL, he would be unemployed. Not sure how I feel about this. Second chances are great and I'm all for them. Maybe he has learned how to keep that aggression on the field. That said, that is a BIG gal involved in the fisticuffs. 5'11", 170lbs? I'd like more info on this.

    Isn't this the same fellow in jnm81s thread?

    Is there more to this? Can't find a semi-reliable link.

    Wonder if this is a signal that J Reed is done at Alabama.

    Jonathan Taylor. I'm 85 percent sure that UofA will approve his admission... and this does not mean Reed is gone this year.... nor does it mean he'll stay either... Expect the UA to make a decision this week, so he could potentially enroll in Jan.

    I agree 100%. And, like CNS said, he would rather these kids be on the field and in school than in prison or on the streets. I'm with him 100%.

    ETA: Yes, there are about 3 threads going at once about this kid.

    If he joins us, I'm happy.

    A "second chance" given by CNS is under strict rules and discipline.....nothing compared to Fisher......and they usually toe the line.

    Do not want.

    Also, I don't think this fits under his definition of second chance.

    1) It wasn't under his watch. He talked about giving chances to his own players.
    2) It's not like the kid got caught with pot. He's an adult who hit a woman.

    Re: Dismissed UGA football player to take official visit to Alabama

    First, I would say even if Saban did take this kid, this is nothing like FSU. If he was at FSU, Jimbo would have stood up for him and he wouldn't have missed a single game. But... I hope he doesn't come to Alabama. I don't know the specifics, but the specifics sound bad, worse than the DJ incident (once I saw more details), because it seems pretty cut and dry that this guy punched and choked his girlfriend. I've said there is a line and he deserved to be kicked off the Georgia team, that's for sure.

    There does have to be the places that give people second chances though. They have to exist, felons need jobs to, if someone is deprived a chance at an education, they become more likely to become career criminals, etc... but, I don't feel good about this guy.

    Everyone deserve a second chance to show they've learned from their mistakes... Let's not judge him for his past incidents. no one is perfect. Sometime it takes a change, a new situation to change things for the better. I hope Taylor get in at UofA, so that we can mold him, educate him and teach him how to be a man off the field. This football program isn't about playing football, but to be a better man off the field. Let's hold off on things we want to say and give it a year to see how he'll do. He'll have DJ Pettway around to mentor him, Reed, Evans, Ragland, all those players will make sure he'll be in good company.
