Demetre Baker
OLB | 6-0 / 200
Orange Park (FL)
Rating:
Scout300: 271
Pos Rank: 23
Committed to: GEORGIA
Commit Date: 6/16/09
Committed Over: East Carolina, Indiana, Miami (Fl), Michigan State, South Carolina, Southern Miss
Scouting Report: Baker is still learning the linebacker position, but his natural ability and athleticism make him one of the best in Florida. He has a lot of speed, he drives his body through opponents when making tackles, and he will be a good weakside backer in college. He plays a lot of running back and he started out as a defensive end in high school, so his best football is ahead of him when he focuses on just linebacker. - Chad Simmons
Brent Benedict
OT | 6-6 / 290
The Bolles (FL)
Rating:
Pos Rank: 10
Committed to: GEORGIA
Commit Date: 6/15/09
Committed Over: Alabama, Clemson, Florida, USC, Virginia Tech
Scouting Report: Benedict is an immediate offer for most college coaches. He is an aggressive offensive linemen that finishes his blocks, that understands blocking schemes, that can run block, that can pass protect, and that has a high level of intelligence. There are not many faults in his game, but his arm length is a minor concern at tackle. He is one of the best in the country. - South Recruiting Analyst Chad Simmons
Michael Bennett
WR | 6-3 / 185
Alpharetta (GA)
Rating:
Pos Rank: 84
Committed to: GEORGIA
Commit Date: 6/16/09
Committed Over: Central Michigan, Florida, Indiana, Southern Miss, Wisconsin
Scouting Report: Bennett is a wide receiver that does a lot of things well. One of the most impressive things I have seen is his body control and how he goes up and gets ball at its highest point. He really plays under control, he manages his body well in air on the ground, and he pretty strong also. His hands are another strength of his. He really goes and gets the ball when it is coming his way, he does wait back for it to come to him. - Chad Simmons
Brandon Burrows
DE | 6-3 / 235
Walton (GA)
Rating:
Pos Rank: 52
Committed to: GEORGIA
Commit Date: 7/8/09
Committed Over: Alabama, Florida, North Carolina State, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Tennessee
Scouting Report: Burrows is supremely-talented and one of the most explosive edge rushers in the country. Has an outstanding first step, excellent body lean and takes good rush/pursuit angles. Athleticism has him playing Tailback, which further demonstrates his natural ability, and he is comfortable playing in space--Burke Hayes
Marc Deas
S | 6-0 / 180
Osceola (FL)
Rating:
Pos Rank: 59
Committed to: GEORGIA
Commit Date: 4/11/09
Committed Over: Cincinnati, Colorado State, Kentucky, Mississippi, UCF
Scouting Report: Deas is a very smart player and he lines up in the box at middle linebacker for Osceola. He will drop back to safety in college and his awareness, instincts, and closing speed will be strengths there like they are at linebacker in high school. He is a sure tackler, he is a leader, and he will make a smooth transition. The big adjustment will come in coverage. That will be something he has to work on. - South Recruiting Analyst Chad Simmons
Jalen Fields
DE | 6-5 / 251
Dalton (GA)
Rating:
Scout300: 213
Pos Rank: 30
Committed to: GEORGIA
Commit Date: 3/21/09
Committed Over: Alabama, Florida, Florida State, Mississippi, Tennessee, West Virginia
Scouting Report: Fields excles is rushing the quarterback. He has a nice first step and he really explodes when getting up field. Overall technique and play by play intensity need improvement, but he has a lot of potential. His size (6-5/245) helps him overpower many OLs, but he will need to learn how to use his hands better to disengage with offensive tackles on the next level. - Chad Simmons - South Recruiting Analyst
Kendarious Gates
OT | 6-5 / 298
Greenville (GA)
Rating:
Pos Rank: 90
Committed to: GEORGIA
Commit Date: 2/2/10
Committed Over: Georgia, Mississippi State, North Carolina State, Troy, Vanderbilt
Scouting Report: Gates is an agile offensive lineman that could play tackle or guard on the next level. He has the feet to play tackle, but his length and pass protection are questionable. He has really improved over the past year and holds his blocks longer, stronger at the point of attack, and just more confident. Still needs to work on his knee-bend and technique. - South Recruiting Manager Chad Simmons
Jakar Hamilton
S | 6-1 / 198
Georgia Military (GA)
Rating:
Pos Rank: JC
Committed to: GEORGIA
Commit Date: 7/11/09
Committed Over: Alabama, Illinois, Kentucky, North Carolina State, South Carolina, West Virginia
Scouting Report: A physical safety that excels in run support, Hamilton is further ahead in attacking the line of scrimmage than he is in pass protection sets early in his junior college career. He has very good closing speed and can chase down offensive players that have broken containment, or he can turn around a running back that's broken through the front seven. Extremely tough player that looks the part of a run supporting strong safety - Scott Kennedy
Kolton Houston
OG | 6-5 / 270
Buford (GA)
Rating:
Scout300: 205
Pos Rank: 6
Committed to: GEORGIA
Commit Date: 4/11/09
Committed Over: Auburn, Clemson, Florida State, South Carolina, Tennessee, Vanderbilt
Scouting Report: Houston is a versatile offensive lineman that could play any of the five spots on the next level. He has very good feet and plays with great aggressiveness. He is best on the inside as a guard because of size and ability to get to the next level. He still needs to improve on holding his blocks and driving guys off the ball, but he will compete for early playing time at Georgia. - South Recruiting Manager Chad Simmons
Ken Malcome
RB | 6-0 / 212
Southwest Dekalb (GA)
Rating:
Scout300: 292
Pos Rank: 25
Committed to: GEORGIA
Commit Date: 6/30/09
Committed Over: Alabama, Clemson, Florida, Florida State, Oklahoma, West Virginia
Scouting Report: Malcome is not a blazer out of the backfield, but he has enough speed to go with his power, vision, and patience to make him one of the top backs in the South. He is a down hill runner, but he also has very good cutback ability. He runs through arm tackles, he has enough quickness to get to the edge of the defense, and he is a back that is the compete package. - Chad Simmons - South Recruiting Analyst
Hutson Mason
QB | 6-3 / 200
Lassiter (GA)
Rating:
Pos Rank: 53
Committed to: GEORGIA
Commit Date: 12/22/09
Committed Over: Clemson, Florida State, Indiana, Iowa, Mississippi State, UCF, Virginia
Scouting Report: Mason had a huge season in 2009 shattering records in Georgia and he has a lot of tools you look for in a quarterback. He is a consistent passer, he makes very quick decisions, and he has great touch on the ball. On the other hand, he still needs to improve his arm strength, his foot placement, and scanning the field. - South Recruiting Manager Chad Simmons
Dexter Morant
DE | 6-6 / 230
Manning (SC)
Rating:
Pos Rank: 45
Committed to: GEORGIA
Commit Date: 7/14/09
Committed Over: Clemson, Florida, Maryland, South Carolina, Tennessee
Scouting Report: Morant has very good size, length, and potential at defensive end. He has great length, he covers a lot of ground when out in space on the edge, and he gets around the corner nicely when rushing the QB. He needs to work on his first step, his strength, and his technique. Potential is the key word for Morant and he has a high ceiling once it all comes together for him. - South Recruiting Analyst Chad Simmons
Alec Ogletree
OLB | 6-3 / 212
Newnan (GA)
Rating:
Pos Rank: 3
Committed to: GEORGIA
Commit Date: 6/26/09
Committed Over: Alabama, Auburn, Clemson, Florida State, LSU, Miami (Fl)
Scouting Report: Ogletree has the body (6-3/215) of a linebacker, but the skills to play safety. He covers a lot of ground at safety, he has great range, and he has very good insticts. He breaks up a lot of passes, he hands are sound, and he is intimidating on that third level. Some may think he is just good in run support, but he is truly the total package at safety. - Chad Simmons - South Region Analyst
Alexander Ogletree
MLB | 5-9 / 202
Newnan (GA)
Rating:
Pos Rank: 74
Committed to: GEORGIA
Commit Date: 12/5/09
Committed Over: Auburn, Florida, Florida State
Lonnie Outlaw
WR | 6-6 / 201
Wilcox County (GA)
Rating:
Pos Rank: 367
Committed to: GEORGIA
Commit Date: 2/3/10
Derek Owens
CB | 5-11 / 175
Andrew Jackson (FL)
Rating:
Pos Rank: 45
Committed to: GEORGIA
Commit Date: 6/19/09
Committed Over: Florida, Florida State, Illinois, Miami (Fl), South Carolina
Scouting Report: Owens was one of the best two-way players in all of Jacksonville over the last couple seasons. He understands how to play the position really well and makes a lot of plays, thanks to his ball skills from playing receiver. He will need to refine some of his game, like tackling, jamming, etc. He also doesn't have top notch speed for his size. -- Mike Bakas
Garrison Smith
DT | 6-3 / 255
Douglass (GA)
Rating:
Pos Rank: 6
Committed to: GEORGIA
Commit Date: 7/30/09
Committed Over: Alabama, Florida, Florida State, LSU, Ohio State, Oklahoma, USC, Vanderbilt
Scouting Report: Smith has the ability to play inside or outside on the next level, but he is a perfect fit for the three technique at defensive tackle. He is strong at the point of attack, he does an excellent job of staying home on the backside, and he really pursues the football well. Smith can become that combo DT that can play the run and pressure the QB. He is a little light, but his frame will fill out in college. - Chad Simmons - South Region Analyst
T.J. Stripling
DE | 6-6 / 215
Southwest Dekalb (GA)
Rating:
Pos Rank: 12
Committed to: GEORGIA
Commit Date: 7/22/09
Committed Over: Alabama, Clemson, Florida, Florida State, Miami (Fl), Ohio State, Oklahoma, Tennessee
Scouting Report: Stripling is a big athlete that can get to the quarterback well from the backside as well as drop into coverage in the flats. He has great feet, great range, and his ceiling is extremely high. Strength is a weakness of his as is size. He needs to gain weight and strength to go up against offensive tackles in college, but he is going to be a speed rush guy on the weak side, so him gaining just 25-30 pounds will be good. - Chad Simmons
Michael Thornton
DT | 6-1 / 275
Stephenson (GA)
Rating:
Scout300: 175
Pos Rank: 16
Committed to: GEORGIA
Commit Date: 2/3/10
Committed Over: Alabama, Auburn, Georgia Tech, Kentucky, Penn State, South Carolina, Tennessee
Scouting Report: Thornton is a strong interior defensive lineman. He is good against the run and he gets good penetration to collapse the pocket against the pass. His biggest strength might be his hands – he has very strong punch and does not allow many offensive linemen to engage their hands into his body. Thornton is a perfect fit for defensive tackle in a 4-3 scheme. - South Recruiting Analyst Chad Simmons
