The Georgia Bulldogs could be SEC contenders next season, if not national championship contenders, if things shake out right. And by that it means if star wide receiver A.J. Green, a likely Top 10 NFL draft pick in 2011, returns for his senior season.
The Dawgs were off on Saturday and close their season with the annual rivalry game against Georgia Tech – a game that Georgia must win to become bowl eligible. Thus Green’s status was the big news during the bye week as the game against the Jackets could well be Green’s last as a Bulldog.
Green said last week that he hasn’t decided whether to enter the 2011 NFL draft and that there will be a lot of factors to consider after Georgia’s season is completed. Green did mention the potential NFL lockout as a factor as well as his mother’s desire for him to get his college degree. But Green also noted that he could suffer a serious injury if he returns to school for one more year that could cost him millions of dollars. Green said his decision will not come until after a bowl if Georgia plays in one.
“I’m not going to make that decision right yet,” he said. In the end, he said, “you’ve got to do what is best for you.”
It’s been a rough year for Green as he was suspended the first four games of the season after he admitted selling his 2009 Independence Bowl jersey for $1,000 to former North Carolina defensive back Chris Hawkins, who the NCAA described as an agent or someone who markets amateur athletes. But Green has still managed 41 catches for 674 yards and nine touchdowns – including a season-best nine catches for 164 yards and two touchdowns against Auburn in Georgia’s last game.
