Dawg Night: Top 10 Performers

Georgia had around 200 prospects inside Sanford Stadium Friday night for Dawg Night 2012 and you can find out who made the most plays here.

Top 10 Dawg Night Performers at the University of Georgia

Deshawn Benton | WR | 5-11/175 | Grady (GA) | 2013

Quick Hitter: Benton had an outstanding showing in Athens. He was very impressive at wide receiver because of his speed and quickness. He showed that extra gear to track those balls down. He has great agility and he could be a slot receiver or defensive back on the next level.

Jeb Blazevich | TE | 6-5/230 | Charlotte Christian (NC) | 2014

Quick Hitter: Blazevich received a lot of attention from the UGA coaches and rightfully so. He is a big tight end with a Bulldog offer and he showed why Friday. He caught the ball well and he really showed the ability to get into his routes well. He is not that 'new-age' tight end like O.J. Howard with speed to burn in 2013, but he is physical, he can block, and he can catch. He is a solid all-around tight end.

Paris Bostick | S | 6-0/205 | Plant (FL) | 2013

Quick Hitter: I lost Bostic for a little while before realizing that UGA was moving him around working him on both sides of the ball. He showed great hands at wide receiver, but his home will be on the defensive (like safety) side of the ball on the next level. He is a very physical player, but has good speed, and showed he could turn and run with the receivers in Athens.

Ishmael Hyman | WR | 6-0/170 | St. John Vianney (NJ) | 2013

Quick Hitter: Hyman had a very strong performance and he will likely see a change for the positive in his ranking on Scout. He is a long 6-feet tall and he showed very good quickness. He got good separation down the field and he went up and attacked the football as well. He has a handful of offers and he outperformed his offer list Friday night.

Rico Johnson | CB | 5-11/170 | Swainsboro (GA) | 2013

Quick Hitter: Georgia offered Johnson at the Mark Richt Camp in June and he committed to the Dawgs immediately. Some may have questioned that offer then, but they shouldn't now. Johnson was the top performer Friday night and he stole the show at wide receiver. His speed was too much for the defensive backs and their wasn't a quarterback out there that could throw it where he couldn't track it down. He could play corner or receiver at UGA, maybe a little of each.

Jeremy Kerr | TE | 6-5/252 | St. Petersburg (FL) | 2013

Quick Hitter: This Miami commitment surprised some by attending Dawg Night and he might have surprised the Georgia coaches. He looks physically like a college tight end now that blocks for his running backs, but he really snatches the ball out of the air well. The first thing that popped in my head when I saw him was offensive tackle and that could be something to keep an eye on down the road. He got off the ball well, he caught the ball well, and expect UGA to stay in touch.

Tyler Queen | QB | 6-1/205 | North Cobb (GA) | 2015

Quick Hitter: There are a lot of things to like about this rising sophomore signal caller. At Dawg Night, he showed a lot of poise for his age and he made a lot of good throws. He started much of the 2011 season as a freshman and he has a lot of potential. He was sharp throughout the event and he showed good arm strength without a lot of extra motion. He is camping at Alabama on Sunday.

Brice Ramsey | QB | 6-3/200 | Camden County (GA) | 2013

Quick Hitter: Ramsey struggled at Dawg Night in 2011, but he was back on his game this year. He continues to show a live arm and it looks like he throws the football with little effort. He threw some very nice deep balls towards the sideline and on some post routes. His timing was good, he drew a lot of praise from Mike Bobo, and this Georgia commitment had a strong showing in his future stadium.

Demarcus Robinson | WR | 6-2/200 | Peach County (GA) | 2013

Quick Hitter: Robinson was the most complete wide receiver at Dawg Night. He runs very crisp routes, he showed very sticky hands, and he really plays under control. Very rarely was a defensive back able to stay with Robinson because of his ability to run routes and keep them on their heels, but even if they did, he showed he could catch the ball with DBs on his shoulder.

Stanley Williams | RB | 5-9/190 | George Walton (GA) | 2014

Quick Hitter: It is hard to imagine that any defensive back or linebacker liked when they were assigned to cover Williams Friday night. He is extremely quick and he showed great top end speed when he got down the field. He made some easy catches in the end zone after beating numerous defensive backs and he showed very good concentration when catching the ball. He committed to Georgia at Dawg Night 2011, but is still taking visits.

Linemen could not be evaluated at Dawg Night due to where they competed and the restrictions to where media can go inside Sanford Stadium.
