It took Georgia commit Chase Vasser a little bit to get going in the Chestatee spring game, and I think there were a couple of reasons why. 1) Vasser is still getting used to playing at middle linebacker rather than on the outside. 2) There was a very quick whistle at the game. 3) Vasser's first and second fingers were slammed into another players' facemask – he lost feeling on those fingers.
Vasser continued to play without feeling, and really picked up the pace over the balance of the scrimmage. There is no question that Vasser has higher than average speed for a linebacker in high school, but I think that speed will translate in college, too. Vasser is a linebacker all the way in my opinion, but just where he will line up is a good question in my mind. Some have floated the idea of Vasser moving to defensive end – that won't work unless he grows a lot.
Vasser is still slender, and he says that the Georgia coaches want him to stay lean and fast. Running from side to side is Vasser's number one attribute. He's physical, fast and big – that's what you are looking for in a prospect.
