Home » blog » 2012 SEC Players to Watch: Ray Drew

Posted by on July 13th, 2012 in blog, CFF Features, Jeff Siverhus | 2 Comments


Alright all you CFB Freaks, we are inside of 50 days for Kickoff of the 2012 season!!!!

With this in mind, we will be featuring different players from throughout the country that may be under the radar now, but could have monster years.



Today we turn our attention to Athens, Ga. The UGA defense finished the 2011 season in the Top 10 in every major category, and they are returning nine starters from ’11.  With all those starters, one player that is sort of under the radar, if that’s possible, is Ray Drew.

Ray Drew was part of the 2011 “Dream Team” class and played sparingly in 2011, he was mainly inserted in passing situations. Drew was considered to be recruited to play OLB in Todd Grantham’s 3-4 defense. However, Drew has added 25-30 pounds of muscle since arriving from High School. Drew was inserted into the defensive end position for the spring game, and at 285 lbs. should be able to hold his own in the tough SEC.

I am predicting a break out year for the “Pastor of Disaster”, for those that don’t know, Ray Drew is also an ordained minister. Following in the footsteps of the Great Reggie White “The Minister of Defense”.

Give us your feedback and welcome suggestion on different players you think we should profile.

    He would have been last season, if we had played him. I called for it all season long. We play Favorites around here.

    7 games.

    That is all he even got into games, half 7 of the 14, did he even step on the field.

    -0- starts.

    Passing Situations ? I don’t think so.

    Ray Drew :

    -0- snaps Boise State
    -0- snaps South Carolina
    -0- snaps LSU

    It went on like this all season long. Start to finish.

    3 of the last 4 games, not allowed to get on the field.

    There is no excuse for our


    In the last 5 games, he was inserted so infrequently, yet our team was hands on their hips worn out, that he tallied not a single tackle assisted or unassisted. Michigan State, LSU, Auburn (you’re kidding me we could not get him on the field against Auburn either), Kentucky, and Georgie tek.

    Don’t get me started on Ray Drew.

    6′ 5″ and 263 lbs.

    USA Today 1st Team National All-America.

    Parade All-America.

    Sporting News # 5 of Top 100 players nationally.

    SuperPrep Elite Top 50 players nationally.

    Army All-America.

    AJ-C Super 11.

    # 2 Player in the talent-rich state of Georgia.

    Consensus Unanimous 5-Star Player.

    Rivals # 9 football player in the nation.

    Rivals # 1 Defensive End nationally.

    By stark contrast, Jadeveon Clowney played all 14 games at # 9 South Carolina gaining 8 unassisted QB sacks, 6 QB hurries, 5 forced fumbles, and a pass break-up as a true Freshman Defensive End.

    We have players on both sides of the football in the same situation, which partly explains why UGA has 28 players who were signed scholarship recruits by Mark Richt to UGA to play 2012 who are transfers-out – the other reason is that they were kicked-off the team.

    We have no leadership on our football team, amid cries once again for our quarterback to perform his duties in this regard.

    This also explains why the top football players in the nation are not signing with Mark Richt. For example, 2012 recruiting class which should have been 29 signed scholarship recruits counting toward 2012, and instead is 14, Alabama signed 8 scholarship recruits in the state of Georgia all 8 of which we offered a scholarship to who are 4-Stars or more and we signed only 5.

    Now, 2013, we have only 1 top 100 football player in the nation who is a commitment to us. He’s a QB, the # 5 Quarterback on our roster, and at a position where we play Favorites as well.

    We have no clue at

    Roster Mis-Management.

    And, what do we have to show for it ?

    *Lost 7 games row to 2006 vs teams make Top 10*
    *Lost 9 games row SEC winning SEC record to 2007*
    *Lost 9 games row vs teams making any Top 25 Poll*

    *NCAA Self-Imposed Probation 16 Lost Scholarship Recruits*

    Pastor of Disaster is a classic nickname in every sense
