Kirby Smart didn't say he was against or in favor of the new early signing period but he did say that he thinks an early signing period could put a lot more pressure on prospects to sign earlier than they are comfortable with.

Quarterback Ben Bryant had been committed to Wisconsin since December, but says the Badgers coaches told him he was no longer a fit after Bryant tweeted that he had received an offer from Georgia. "The night before this was tweeted out, I called (Wisconsin) Coach Budmayr to give him heads up that I was given the offer and left a message on his voicemail. I made it clear I was 100 percent committed to the Badgers," Bryant said in a statement. "The next morning we spoke on the phone and I was informed that I was no longer a good fit for Wisconsin and I was encouraged to continue looking for a fit."
