Which would also mean that we would lose our current DC (which I think is a forgone conclusion?).

Aren't we all though?

But, lets assume this was true. Why wouldn't 'they' target someone that was most likely higher on their board instead of a lower first round-early second round player? One would think, someone that was likely a top 10 pick would be a greater target due to their increased 'value' if you were able to scoop them up in a later round versus in the top 10.

No clue if this is even a possibility, but I've always had it my head that Coombs and LJ would be DCs for us some day (possibly even with the dreaded 'co' prefix).

It's becomes a little simplified by the fact that the witnesses say that nothing at all happened between the two. The rape kit might be able to prove that. 

For what its worth regarding rape kit testing and the time it takes (from here), looks like it might be months before the results, if there are any conclusive results, are returned:

 It is possible for a very high-priority case (e.g., a current serial rapist or sexual homicide case) to be processed in as little as 2-5 days, however, 3-6 months is a more typical testing time.

It is weird. But, if we assume that all of this is true, then there is no defined way to behave after being raped. If we assume its all false, then yes, its beyond bizarre.

Thats a good point, and Im wondering if guys like Cornell and Berry will be working more at DE to provide depth for next year. There is no doubt that DE will be a focus in 2018 class (pssttt... talking to you Mr. Parsons) and will likely result in another stellar group coming in (Parsons, Smith, Cox, et. al. ?).

I almost forgot just how dominant he looked, against the top prospects in the country, at the US Army All-American bowl. Also, Young is the 8th highest rated recruit ever (since 247 started recording, and for reference, Joey Bosa is ranked #39th all time) at tOSU, and third best DE all time behind 'lil Bear and Spence.

No doubt he's gonna be good and next year the Rushmen package might include Cooper, Bosa, and Young? Yikes.

100% agree. This 'feels' like a potential fizzle, but won't be the end of the world. We would be very happy and lucky to have someone of Cox's talent, but can survive without him. 

Interestingly, after landing the #3 class (via 247) in 2017, they are off to a cold start for 2018... with just 2 'cruits, coming in at #53 in the nation. Maybe they will pick it up late, or maybe this is a sign of some issues at UGA?

Lets get the hype-train going for Leasure. How can you not root for this kid?

From the Columbus Dispatch:

My junior year, I had an appendicitis attack four days before the district wrestling meet. I was able to treat the infection with antibiotics rather than have surgery to removing my appendix, which would have ended my season. I was very weak and could stomach very little food. In the semifinals of the district I broke my hand halfway through the second period, but I made a final-second takedown to win the match. I then won the district championship to become the first three-time state qualifier in Amanda-Clearcreek’s history

There is no doubt, Leasure is a fan favorite now (at least for me)... he looked really good on saturday. Hope he rises just like Fada, Burger, and even Durbin, and receives some playing time (albeit, in garbage time most likely).
