This week's Athens Banner-Herald quotes one such expatriate, lineman Jeff Owens from Sunrise.
"I wanted to get out of the state," said fifth-year senior defensive tackle Jeff Owens, from Sunrise, Fla., located in South Florida. "Florida had a new coaching staff coming in, so you didn't know what to expect. I went with someone that I knew would be committed and had a long tradition here and I loved Georgia."
