Under Armour News & Notes

A breakdown of a few Georgia commits & targets and how they look in Orlando this week.

CB Shaq Wiggins - The four-star cornerback from Sandy Creek has always turned heads with his vivacious personality. During Monday's Under Armour Bowl practice, he turned heads with his play. Wiggins was tasked with covering some of the top receivers, including Laquon Treadwell. Wiggins rose to the challenge and mirrored his man on almost every route. To be only 5-foot-9, Wiggins played well in bump-and-run coverage, jamming receivers larger than him at the line of scrimmage. The charismatic Wiggins also did a good job of keeping his eyes in the backfield while keeping pace with his man downfield.

QB Brice Ramsey - Ramsey is one of three quarterbacks on Team Nitro, but on Monday, the four-star signal caller was a notch better than his fellow position players (Michigan commit Shane Morris and Miami commit Kevin Olsen). He showed decent mobility but also did a good job of standing in the pocket and delivering the ball in the face of pressure. Team Nitro has some real talent on the defensive line (Mississippi State commit Chris Jones, South Carolina commit Kelsey Griffin, Auburn commit Carl Lawson and undeclared Tim Williams. He completed more passes than any other quarterback during the practice session and flashed signs of his quick release. He connected with a tight end on a long pass for the longest play of the practice.

RB Alvin Kamara - Just as he showed in Norcross' runs to the AAAAAA state title, Kamara is a hot commodity for a reason. Kamara is a fluid, quick back. He shares the backfield on Team Blur (The black team for those who watch the game Friday at 5 p.m.) with Florida commit Kelvin Taylor, and Kamara is holding his own. The smaller back is explosive and smooth, even when running routes out of the backfield. He is not tipping his hand about his recruitment, but it is a Bama-Georgia battle from now until signing day for this highly-touted back.
