Mark Richt kept recruiting a star QB for Georgia even after being let go

That's a nice development for the next coach.

Georgia let coach Mark Richt go after 15 seasons because the Bulldogs weren't happy with consistent 10-win seasons. However, rather than get bitter, Richt kept recruiting for UGA, advising its top recruit to stick with the school.

Georgia has the fourth-ranked recruiting class in the country in 2016, according to 247 Sports, and Eason is ranked as the second best quarterback in the country, according to the composite ratings. So the Bulldogs' next coach would certainly appreciate it if Richt were to continue recruiting like he is now.
