Thoughts on UGA Commits from Under Armor

ORLANDO - Chad Simmons makes his final reviews of Georgia commits who were at the Under Armor All-American Game

DE Robert Beal

Beal flashed a little with his speed to the ball, but overall, he was just an average player last week.  He was stoned number times and he actually checked out early to spend time with the trainer on day one.  He has to get stronger at the point of attack and he has to stay healthy.  He was not close to being like a Joshua Kaindoh, K'Lavon Chaisson or a Luiji Villain in this setting.  He will see his ranking go down some when the final rankings are released.

 

ATH DeAngelo Gibbs

Gibbs started off the first couple of hours at safety and he looked good.  Then a couple of WRs went down, so they asked him to move over to offense.  He did that, and he caught some nice balls in practice, but he dropped some too.  Nothing he did made him jump out in a good or bad way over the week really other than a couple of tough grabs he made against tough coverage.  His ranking should not change much at all.

 

CB William Poole

Poole got off to a slow start, but he really finished strong.  He was getting beat by the quicker wideouts and he could not make the turns to stay with them in man coverage.  When he was able to play off coverage, sit back and make his reads, then he was much better.  He had an interceptions and a few pass break-ups late in the week, then was OK in the game.  He did get called for a PI in the game when he was beaten on a deep route.  He is not that twitchy athlete and it will be interesting to see how he progresses in Athens.  His ranking should stay about the same — one of the lower 4 stars.

 

OT Isaiah Wilson

Wilson was one of the biggest surprises imo... He created a lot of positive buzz daily on the practice fields.  He was beating in the game by Labryan Ray, but for the week, he had a very strong showing.  People were surprised at how agile he was for his size.  He really has to improve his footwork and his body control in run blocking, but in pass protection, he was pretty solid.  He is a big body with real upside.  He is out of my region, but I expect his ranking to improve.
