So they have his medications correct now, someone taking his classes for him and an earpiece so he knows where he is going on the field. He's just not into books chemistry, basket weaving or a playbook.

UGA has Brock Bowers at TE. He was a freshman last year and was 1st team All-SEC. I know Gilbert is a great (physical) talent, but Bowers will be hard to keep off the field.

Honestly I hope the young man has gotten his life together and will go on to do great things. Maybe UGA has been a good fit for him. He is super talented.

Unless he is on a proper dose of medication that is obviously needed he will never see the NFL unfortunately.

So where did all of this mental health bull shite come from. It seems believable, but is that just fodder on here or do we know that he has officially been clinically diagnosed

"mental health" is code for "drug addiction".

I'm genuinely impressed that UGA has managed to hold onto three elite TE's at the same time.

There is no way all three see the field at the same time so that's one hell of a sales pitch Kirby must've made to hold onto them in the NIL/instant eligibility era.
