DawgNation week in review
By David Ching
ATHENS, Ga. -- The most buzzworthy story around DawgNation this week is that of 2013 outside linebacker Matthew Thomas, ESPN’s No. 6 overall prospect who signed with Florida State in February and announced this week that he wants out of the deal.
Matthew Thomas wants out of his letter of intent to Florida State. He is very interested in Georgia should he get a release.
The big story on the team side concerns offensive lineman Kolton Houston, who takes his ongoing eligibility dispute with the NCAA to ESPN’s airwaves on Sunday morning. The piece, set to air at 9 a.m. on Outside the Lines, details the often unusual methods Houston has employed in an effort to remove the trace elements from a 2009 steroid injection from his system in order to pass an NCAA drug test that would make him eligible to compete.
It will be Houston's first interview since he first tested positive in 2010.
Georgia offensive coordinator Mike Bobo and basketball coach Mark Fox spoke Thursday at a UGA Days event in Augusta, with both men providing updates on their teams -- including the colorful strategy Bobo said the Bulldogs might have to use to contend with South Carolina’s superstar defensive end Jadeveon Clowney.
