Georgia State fans headed into the offseason with the glow of a winning season and very limited holes to fill for 2011. With only starting 3rd Team All America Kicker Iain Vance graduating, the Panthers need to shore up the defensive line to improve against the run, add depth at linebacker and in the defensive secondary.
Coach Bill Curry also expressed an interest in signing a Quarterback to develop. With those needs, the coaching staff also aimed to focus on the Atlanta Metro area and snatch quality players who may have slipped through the cracks.
