Dean Legge reviews every member of Georgia's class of 2015 - today Devondre Seymour

Devondre Seymour

Offensive Lineman

North Gwinnett/Hinds (Miss.) JC – Suwanee, Ga.

6-6/310

Stars: 3

No. 40 overall JUCO player in the country

No. 5 JUCO OT in the country

Two years ago Georgia coaches kept in contact with Seymour throughout his senior season. In the 11th-hour, the Bulldogs sent Seymour a letter of intent, assuring him an offer to join the 2013 class. On national signing day, the adopted son of former Georgia great and NFL all-Pro Richard Seymour chose the Bulldogs.

In 2015, a couple of falls removed from playing at North Gwinnett and Hinds Junior College, Seymour will finally slip on Silver Britches.

HONORS: Three-star prospect, No. 40 JUCO prospect in the country… In high school, Dawg Post No. 3 OT and No. 28 overall prospect in Georgia

SCOUTING: We call him "Scooter". But very talented guy, and a guy that if I'm not mistaken will be coming in with three years to play three, and that'll be great for us.  You know, it's been a little while, waiting for him to get in position to come back on campus, or to come to campus, but we're very happy that he decided to stick with Georgia and is taking care of his. - Mark Richt

STATS: Seymour paved the way for a rushing attack that totaled 1,862 yards and 17 touchdowns for the season. North Gwinnett’s rushing offense averaged 143 yards per game and 5.4 yards per carry in 2012. He is the son of former Georgia All-American and NFL All-Pro Richard Seymour.

LEGGE’S QUESTION: Can Scooter Seymour contribute at offensive tackle right away? He should be able to considering he’s nearly three years out of high school. He’s an important part of the future of Georgia’s offensive line.

LEGGE’S THOUGHTS: Mark Richt compared Devondre Seymour to former Bulldog Cordy Glenn on Signing Day. That’s a pretty big comparison. If Seymour is anywhere near Glenn, that means the Dawgs got a 100% steal in Seymour on Signing Day. Seymour developed into a very, very good offensive tackle at North Gwinnett – a place known for developing offensive linemen. Time will tell just how good Seymour will be, but he was an excellent get for the Dawgs on Signing Day.
