Top Performers: UGA Friday 7v7

Georgia held their final 7on7 Friday and some of the top prospects in the Peach State competed. Some of the best you will recognize in the Top Performers and some you may not...

Trenton Thompson, the top prospect in the state of Georgia and the No. 8 overall prospect on Scout watched Friday and was surrounded by the Bulldog coaches all day.

Other top prospects like Oregon commit Taj Griffin, USC commit Chuma Edoga, and Georgia commit Chauncey Rivers stood on the sidelines and supported their teammates too.

But some top talent was on the fields at Butts-Mehre too. Here is a look at the top 10 performers Friday.

1. Terry Godwin | 2015 ATH | Hoganville (Ga.) Callaway
OK I am done. Every time Godwin competes, you expect to see his name at the top of the list, and this time is no different. He is a special player and I do not use that word very often. He was picking passes off, burning defenders deep, and showcasing his speed, hands, and athleticism all day. Godwin is committed to Georgia.

2. Charlie Woerner | 2016 TE | Tiger (Ga.) Rabun County
There was not that big of a gap between 1 and 2 this time. Godwin was 1, but Woerner was more like 1A than 2. This kid does it all. The way he contorts his body for a 6-foot-5, 221 pound athlete and his instincts stood out all day. He is a big athlete that Scout ranks as the No. 83 overall prospect in 2016.

3. Justin Gibbs | 2017 ATH | Augusta (Ga.) Aquinas
Before going down with an ankle injury late in the morning session, Gibbs was putting on a show. He was holding his own at corner, but he was making play after play at wide receiver. Gibbs has great size (6-2/188 pounds) and he will have offers sooner than later.

4. Bailey Hockman | 2017 QB | Powder Springs (Ga.) McEachern
Yes, he just completed his freshman season, but he looks like a veteran and a true field general on the field. He is a lefty that really sees the field well and he was very accurate on Friday. He throws with good anticipation and he was the top passer in Athens at this event. Will be a big-time prospect.

5. T.J. Rahming | 2015 Slot | Powder Springs (Ga.) McEachern
Hockman had to throw to someone and he was not short on targets, but Rahming had a good morning, then took off in the afternoon when it counted. This kid is a slot receiver and he is super quick and his hands were consistent Friday. It was hard for any defense to slow him down, much less stop him.

6. Khalil Ladler | 2016 CB | Stone Mountain (Ga.) Stephenson
It was a better day for offensive prospects than defensive, but one that stood out was Ladler. He is a physical corner who likes to mix it up and he got his hands on numerous footballs. He helped his team to the championship Friday. Not the biggest corner in height, but can play big.

7. Liam Welch | 2016 QB | Augusta (Ga.) Aquinas
A signal caller that was a top five guy for me at the MVP Camp a couple of weeks ago showed again today that he is emerging as a top signal caller in Georgia. His release is compact and he throws a very catchable football. Spins it well and he helped his team to the final six without his top two targets.

8. Dexter Neal | 2015 WR | Stone Mountain (Ga.) Stephenson
Neal was solid all morning and afternoon Friday in Athens. The South Carolina is a physical wide receiver and he showed he can catch the ball in traffic Friday. He took balls away from defenders and he went up to get the ball when needed. He made key plays for the championship team.

9. Christian Owens | 2015 WR | Griffin (Ga.)
For me, Owens got off to somewhat of a sluggish start, but as the day went on, Owens started to show why Georgia (Bulldog commit) offered him when it did. He is a tall (6-5) receiver with long arms and after about game two, he was getting open, getting open, and getting open. He scored numerous touchdowns and he caught the ball well with his hands.

10. Jordan Colbert | 2015 OLB/S | Griffin (Ga.)
An athlete that is getting more and more comfortable on the defensive side of the ball. He has gained a little weight over the past six months and he had a god day at safety. The Auburn commitment has great closing speed and he tracked the ball well in coverage
