Reports: Geathers Makes the Grade
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution is reporting that the Myrtle Beach Sun News is reporting that Clifton Geathers is saying he is close to qualifying academically. Got that? It is par for the course in the ongoing saga of Geathers who has been probably the most difficult prospect to chronicle in recent times. If true, it is great news for the Bulldog team that is thin along the offensive line.
While the Sun News does not offer their story on their website, the online version of the AJC's story quotes Geathers' tutor Dr. Jean D'Arcy Maculaitis.
A four star prospect out of Carvers Bay, S.C., Geathers is the younger brother of former Bulldog and current Cincinnati Bengal Robert Geathers and nephew of All Pro Jumpy Geathers. His father also played in the National Football League. The youngest Geathers committed to the Bulldogs after signing day, but has yet to sign a National Letter of Intent. Getting news on his progress has been very difficult.
Geathers was rated the No. 24 offensive line prospect in the nation by Rivals.com and the No. 4 player in the State of South Carolina. He chose the Bulldogs over scholarship offers from several other schools including Auburn, Clemson, Florida, Tennessee, South Carolina, Virginia Tech, and Florida Sate.
