Isaiah Land enters the portal, potential game for Georgian football

0

Georgia has seen a lot of turnover since Jan. 10, when it won the first national title in more than 41 years at Classic City of Athens, Georgia.

They saw 15 players drafted in the 2022 NFL Draft, they saw 10 players enter the NCAA transfer portal, 18 new enrollees, and are expected to have the remaining (11) 2022 signers come June.

And through all the turnover, there has been a clear need for this football program if they have any hope of defending the national title… Pash Rush.

Georgia head coach Kirby Smart took time out from the nationally televised broadcast of the annual G-Day game to address that concern.

When asked about his star defensive lineman Jalen Carter on the show with former Alabama quarterback Greg McElroy, he mentioned Carter’s pass rush:

“Pass rush. He can go after the passer with is our biggest need, we need a pass rush.”

So when the FCS sack leader in the form of Isaiah Land, a 6’4 EDGE from Florida A&M arrives at the transfer gate like he did on Sunday morning, it’s a name Georgia fans should probably pay attention.

Land led all FCS football with 25.5 tackles for loss and 19 sacks. Land added three forced fumbles, two pass breakups and a fumble recovery. He’s recorded a sack in 10 of his 11 contests in 2021, and would add a much-needed pass-rushing skill set for the Dawgs if they land him.

Voluntary pun.

Here’s a look at the team’s turnover since January.
