NFL Draft 2014: Georgia LB Ramik Wilson, SEC leading tackler, will return to school

After a season full of bad news, the Georgia Bulldogs got their first bit of good news after the regular season as linebacker Ramik Wilson has decided that he will return to Athens for one more season.

Wilson was the leading tackler in the SEC for that Bulldogs defense, totaling an impressive 128 total tackles on the 2013 season.

In speaking to the 247 Georgia Bulldogs site, Wilson citing wanting to finish his education as a reason for his return to terrorize the SEC next year:

“It was just nice to think about. I’m blessed to have the opportunity,” Wilson said, according to dawgs247.com. “I was just enjoying the moment, like ‘The dream is coming true. I have a chance to get drafted and all that.’ But school is more important. I need my degree at the end of the day.”

Head coach Mark Richt also offered up some of his thoughts:

“Ramik had a tremendous year, but I think he knows that he can get better. I think that’s a good sign for Georgia,” said Bulldogs coach Mark Richt.

Just the thought that Wilson can get better, as Richt alludes to, is just scary for SEC offenses to ponder.
