Georgia is loaded with defensive tackle prospects this season and the best of the bunch appears to be big Cedric Boone. Boone is a 4 star prospect on TheInsiders.com network and a member of the BorderWars 101 Team. Americus is a 2 time defending state champion, and Boone is a big reason why. He is 6-4 and 320 pounds and has good movement with a 5.2 forty time. His most impressive attribute though is his unbelievable strength.
"You're not going to believe this," said Americus Coach Eric Soliday, "but Cedric bench presses about 505 pounds. One of the coaches that came to recruit Cedric didn't believe me either; we took him into the weight room and made a believer out of him."
Auburn and Georgia are rumored to be the 2 co-leaders for the big man, but Boone is not ready to tip his hand just yet. "Right now, I like FSU, Georgia, Auburn, South Carolina, and Clemson," said Boone. "They're all about even right now. I don't want to make a decision too soon or anything."
Boone could be a standout on the offensive line as well with his size and strength, but he is being recruited as a brick wall on the defensive side of the ball.
