You don’t have to wait for National Signing Day any longer to have a Signing Day surprise.
Woodland DE Michael Barnett Jr. had been committed to Florida State since June, and when it was announced yesterday that he would be signing financial aid papers Friday at his school, it was widely assumed he would do so with the Seminoles. Well, to use a worn out phrase, not so fast my friend.
Barnett pulled out a Georgia hat at his signing ceremony and inked the papers with the Bulldogs. Barnett said he felt better at Georgia and it’s closer to home.
Of course, the defensive coordinator at Georgia, Jeremy Pruitt, was at Florida State prior to this season.
