Scouting Upson Lee vs. Griffin

Griffin continued to roll with a big win over Upson Lee last week and numerous underclassmen stood out. Scout takes a look at the top prospects on each team here...

Griffin stayed unbeaten with a 43-13 win over Upson Lee last week and there were plenty of talented prospects in this game.

Scout breaks down the best here:

Jordan Colbert
| 6-2, 203 | 2015 OLB | Griffin

No offers yet for Colbert, but that will change. Colbert is very athletic and after playing wide receiver as a freshman and a sophomore, he has moved to outside linebacker this season. He is raw and he is still learning, but he has speed, length, and he had a few big hits in this game. He can play in space and he is a prospect that will see his recruitment pick up in a big way in the coming months.

Keyston Fuller
| 6-0, 178 | 2015 WR | Griffin

Fuller shined in this game and he finished with 219 all-purpose yards. He returned a kick-off for a touchdown, he scored a touchdown receiving, and he had over 120 yards receiving. He is more quick than fast and he has great acceleration. He is a receiver who could play inside on the next level with his size and skill set. He has very good hands, he is athletic, and he can be a weapon on special teams.

Darquavious Mangham
| 6-3, 180 | 2015 WR | Griffin

Mangham had a couple of receptions in this game. Vanderbilt has already offered Mangham and he is a bigger receiver that has a good frame. He is more of a possession receiver right now and he has to work on his speed and ability to separate from defensive backs. He does have strong hands, he can high-point the ball, and he has shown that he can catch the ball in traffic.

Christian Owens
| 6-5, 205 | 2015 WR/TE | Griffin

Owens had close to 100 yards receiving against Upson Lee on five catches. He caught a nice touchdown on a fade route in the corner of the end zone and he took a quick screen over 40 yards. He has deceptive speed and he is more of a long strider. He has long arms, he catches the ball away from his body, and he is fluid. As he grows into his frame, he could become a hybrid who can be used at tight end and receiver. Owens is committed to Georgia.

Jaquez Parks
NR | 6-0, 200 | 2014 QB | Griffin

Parks was considered an athlete up until this year, but he has turned into a Division 1 quarterback prospect. He may not have the size all schools look for, but he is a dual-threat quarterback who can run and pass. He has a good arm, he is throwing with a lot better accuracy this season, and he has really improved his mechanics. He was recently offered by Air Force and Clemson called about him this week.

David Marshall
| 6-4, 270 | 2016 DT | Upson Lee

Scout has already placed four stars on Marshall's profile and he is a defensive lineman you want to know about. He has great size, he is strong, and he is athletic. No offers yet, but schools like Alabama and Georgia started recruiting him during his freshman season. He is still improving his pad level and the use of his hands, but he has so much potential.

Kenderius Pennyman
NR | 6-0, 203 | 2016 ATH | Upson Lee

Pennyman starred at running back as a freshman, but he has spent more time on the defensive side of the ball this season. He may project best as an inside linebacker, but he could be a big running back as well. He had a nice kick return, a handful of tackles and a couple of runs in this game. He made the biggest impact on defense. He is more of a north-south guy with good power.
