Former Georgia cornerback Brandon Boykin used Clemson’s national title to publicize his alma mater on Twitter, posting a message to recruits about what could be in store for the Bulldogs under Kirby Smart.

Georgia has not won a national title since 1980, and the Bulldogs have not won an SEC title since 2005.

Boykin’s tweet drew a response from former Georgia running back Todd Gurley, who noted that players such as Deshaun Watson — who is from Gainesville, Ga. — should not be going to Clemson.

Boykin signed with the Chicago Bears before the 2016 season, but missed the season because of a pectoral injury suffered in training camp. He has played for the Philadelphia Eagles and Pittsburgh Steelers during his NFL career.

Boykin’s school record of five career punt or kickoff returns for a touchdown was broken this season by wide receiver Isaiah McKenzie.
