News and Notes from Friday 7 on 7 in Athens

Dawg Post takes a look at some of the top performers from Friday's 7 on 7 tournament in Athens

All eyes were on Houston County quarterback and 2017 Georgia commit Jake Fromm today as he led his team deep into the 7 on 7 tournament in Athens.  While his team did not reach the championship, Fromm and his teammates had an excellent day until facing Griffin in the semi-finals.  There were a few throws that Fromm would like to have back, but he showed everyone why he is one of the top quarterback prospects in the country.

When watching Fromm, what stands out the most is how he throws such a catchable ball.  He throws a nice spiral all over the field, he puts great touch on the ball when he needs to, but can also put some added zip on a throw when he needs to as well.  He works fast, can read a defense, and can pick a part a team at ease if they aren’t playing their best.  He threw a very consistent deep ball all day, and has the overall look of a great quarterback prospect.  He also has that leadership and command of the huddle that is needed as well. It was a very good day overall for the future Georgia quarterback.

Another quarterback who had a great day was Griffin’s Tylan Morton.  Morton is tall and skinny, but he showed some great arm strength. He was consistent with his accuracy, and caught many people’s attention throughout the day.  Morton had an excellent day at the Lassiter MVP camp last Sunday and continued his impressive work today.  Look for more schools to start taking notice in this 2017 quarterback very soon.  Senior receivers Malik Route and Anthony Shinholster also had solid days catching the ball for the Griffin Bears.  All three are solid sleeper prospects in the 2017 class.

There were also some very good linemen in attendance today.  Georgia offensive line target D’Antne Demery from Brunswick looked very good today and spent much of his time working closely with Georgia offensive line coach Sam Pittman.  The two have a close chemistry and the Bulldogs are in very good shape to land one of the best linemen in the state for the 2017 class.

Trey Hill from Houston County also had a good day.  The 6-foot-4 335-pound lineman has wide hips and good strength, and has picked up numerous offers the past few weeks.  Georgia and Tennessee are two major programs who have recently offered.  Look for Hill to be ranked as one of the top guard prospects in Georgia for the 2018 class.

Callaway’s Keiondre Jones continues to impress.  The elite 2019 tackle looks to have slimmed down a bit recently and looks great physically.  He was working close with the coaches and showed good punch when going through drills.  The 6-foot-4 286-pounder has the potential to be a nationally ranked prospect in the next couple of years.  The Georgia staff is already working on him hard. 

2020 offensive line prospect Myles Hinton of GAC also had a great day and earned an offer during the camp.  He was getting a ton of attention from offensive line coach Sam Pittman and he will be a prospect to know sooner than later.

Switching to the defensive line GAC’s Christopher Hinton really stood out in the group and earned an offer today.  This 2019 lineman looks the part physically, and while he didn’t have as good of a day as others, he still has the look of a major college prospect down the road.

The other defensive lineman that impressed was Eufaula (AL) prospect Kadarian Hill. Hill won almost ever rep he took when I was watching, and head coach Kirby Smart took him aside and spoke with him briefly.  Look for him to be a target in the 2018 class.
