Hunt Palmer joins OTB to talk Tiger football and basketball, starting with Joe Burrow’s award wins.

Palmer said that these wins make a huge difference in recruiting.
“You look back at the out-of-state defensive backs,” Palmer said, “they can go anywhere they want because of the stuff that goes on in that awards room.”

“(Georgia’s defense) looked good,” Palmer said. “LSU was just better.”
