15 for 2015: Natrez Patrick

Dawg Post's look at an early list of 15 players in the Class of 2015 to keep track of.

Dawg Post's 15 for 2015 is an early list of players who have already make a mark on the recruiting world. This list is not an indicator of the best 15 high school football players in Georgia. It is not a list of 15 players Georgia will sign in 2015.

It is simply a list of 15 players readers should be aware of as they start to understand 2015's landscape.

Natrez Patrick
6-3, 228
Significant Offers: Georgia and high-level SEC.

Fox Sports NEXT's Chad Simmons on Patrick:

Without question one of the top 2015 prospects in the Peach State. He can play with his hand down at end or drop back as an outside linebacker on the next level. He is extremely athletic, he fires off the ball, and he has great speed in pursuit. His hand action is good too.

He has the offers any kid would want - Alabama, Florida, FSU, Georgia, Notre Dame, Texas and USC among others have offered. Georgia may have a slight edge.

Dean Legge on Patrick and Georgia:

Patrick's teammate and buddy Dallas Warmack picked Alabama earlier this summer, and the Tide is in the fight for Patrick, too. But Georgia doesn't have to go against the family tie that Bama had with Warmack.

Instead this fight for Patrick, which appears to be a Bama-Georgia one right now, seems to be one Georgia can win. The Bulldogs have done a pretty good (but not perfect) job of getting in-state linebackers to stay home and play for the Dawgs since Todd Grantham arrived on campus. Jordan Jenkins - only one of the projected starting linebackers for Georgia in 2013 is from out of state.

So that will be the challenge for Grantham with Patrick - keeping an outside linebacker in state for the Bulldogs.
