Local take: “Admittedly, hiring an assistant who began in Oxford just 39 days prior to his hiring in Athens was a bit of a surprise, but Kirby Smart and company knew there was precious little time to waste at such an important position. Where they need Tray Scott to thrive is in recruiting, something he showed he was capable of during his time at North Carolina. Guys like Xach Gill and Jake Lawler seemed to like him last cycle, and Georgia definitely wants to re-establish itself in the state of North Carolina. Don’t be surprised if he’s tasked with aiding efforts on Zamir White and KJ Henry straight out of the gate.” – Jake Reuse, UGASports.com

Farrell’s take: “Scott is young and energetic and did a good job at North Carolina under Gene Chizik as the defense was revamped entirely. He’s jumping from UNC to Ole Miss to Georgia in a 40-day span so only those behind the scenes truly know what’s going on there but clearly the Georgia job was too good to pass up. He was a solid recruiter for the Tar Heels and helped them land some key defensive linemen this past season, but he doesn’t have a ton of experience recruiting at a high level so the jury is still out. Georgia needs defensive linemen in the 2018 class so he will be tested quickly.” – Farrell

Farrell’s grade: B-
