Could Gibbs play at UGA now?

Could DeAngelo Gibbs play at Georgia right now? He is still in high school and he is just starting his sophomore year...

Prospects get offers earlier and earlier, so Georgia, like many others offered Deangelo Gibbs a scholarship during his freshman season.

It is not hard to see that Gibbs is a special talent, but the Dawgs may think he is a little more than special.

The 6-foot-2, 191 pound sophomore spoke to a couple of UGA coaches Saturday and they filled his ears with some big words.

"I talked to Coach [Bryan] McClendon (Running backs) and Coach [Jeremy] Pruitt (Defensive backs) and they told me, if I was there now, I would be playing," said Gibbs.

Those are some bold words, but they could be true. Gibbs is not your normal 2017 prospect. He has a chance to be one of the best in the country, regardless of position.

Gibbs said, "It feels great to hear a coach tell you that."

That does not effect him though like it could some. He is still focused and he is mature enough to handle those type of comments.

The star athlete out of Suwanee (Ga.) Peachtree Ridge does not have a leader, but Georgia does have Gibbs' attention.

"I love the coaches [at Georgia] and their facilities. I walked through their trophy room, I went into their defensive meetings, and I watched the scrimmage today.

"Todd Gurley did good, of course, and Lorenzo Carter seems to be making his way up the depth chart. It was fun there today."

Georgia is recruiting Gibbs as an athlete. Scout projects him as a corner at this time, but he could easily play safety or wide receiver on the next level.
