Dawg Night: Top Five Defense

Scout was on hand Friday night when Georgia hosted their final camp of 2011. Find out who impressed Scout the most on the defensive side here.

  • James Ellison – 6-1/280 – Defensive Tackle – 2013 – Hamilton, Ga.-Harris County Quick Hitter: Ellison may have had the quickest first step off the ball at this event. His hands are active, he plays with good leverage, and knows how to get to the quarterback.

  • Reuben Foster – 6-1/228 – Linebacker – 2013 – Lagrange, Ga.-Troup
    Quick Hitter: Foster may have been the top defensive prospect on the field Friday night. He is so good in just about all aspects of the game at linebacker. He moves well laterally, he has speed, and will be a five-star in 2013.

  • Jordan Jenkins – 6-3/241 – Defensive End – 2012 – Hamilton, Ga.-Harris County Quick Hitter: Jenkins is a five-star prospect, but he came to compete like he was working to earn an offer. He is an energetic player that is very quick off the ball. He continues to get better in coverage too when working at linebacker.

  • Justin Thomason – 6-3/240 – Defensive End – 2012 - McDonough, Ga. – Eagles Landing Christian Academy
    Quick Hitter: Thomason split time at linebacker and defensive end due to the system Georgia plays on defense. He was being evaluated closely and he is one that likely moved up on UGA's board after his performance.

  • Charles Henry – 6-1/175 – Cornerback – 2012 – Jacksonville, Fla.-Raines
    Quick Hitter: Raines is a long and rangy defensive back and he broke up a few passes that came his way at Dawg Night. He was solid in coverage, but could be better suited as a free safety.

    Others Under Consideration: Kenneth Bynum (2012 LB), Tyreece Jiles (2012 CB), Sam Jowers (2012 DL), Isaac Rochell (2013 DE), and Tramel Terry (2013 CB/WR).

    Chad Simmons started out with Scout in 2003 covering top talent in Georgia and other areas in the South. He then moved on to another Recruiting Service from 2004-2008 before returning to Scout the first of 2009 to become Southeast Recruiting Manager.
