Under Armour Insider Notes:
On offense, the offensive line group stood out the most. Houston County (GA) guard Trey Hill continues to get bigger and is so strong in his lower body. He’s always impressive, but this could have been one of his better camp performances over the years. 2019 Grayson tackle Wanya Morris (GA) looked great also at left tackle. He got a huge behind but he’s a strong kid with long arms. He didn’t lose a single rep during the period I was watching. He’s visited Georgia recently but the Bulldogs are behind a couple of schools at this time.
2019 Oxford (AL) lineman Clay Webb was dominant at times too. Moves well, showed good balance, and got his hands in the right spot early. It’s likely an Alabama/Auburn battle here. 2019 Hewitt-Trussville (AL) tackle Pierce Quick looks the part also, and won some good reps against some of the top defensive lineman in attendance. He has the frame to continue to add good weight as well.
The quarterback position had some talent as well. Emory Jones threw the ball well, and impressed with multiple big throws deep downfield. He can put some heat on the ball when he needs to, and showed elusiveness and quickness in drills. I didn’t see Harrison Bailey until the very end, but he blended in very well with some tall older guys at the camp. He threw two completions in the only two reps I saw, and he certainly has the look of a major five-star prospect down the road. He will continue to take visits all over, and seems wide open in his recruitment. Georgia should be in the mix the entire way.
Bo Nix has had two very good showing the past couple of weeks, and earned a Future 50 invite after his performance Sunday. Nix showed consistent accuracy and arm strength throughout the event., Jarren Williams, and Michael Barrett also threw the ball well.
At running back, Tennessee commit Alontae Taylor and Austin (AL) back Asa Martin stood out during drills and 1 on 1s. Clarke Central (GA) back Jonathan Sewell looks the party physically and is starting to see his recruitment pick up. 2020 Callaway athlete Cartavious Bigsby made some plays as well making multiple nice catches on the sideline.
At receiver, Brookwood (GA) athlete Matthew Hill had the best day of them all. He was tough to cover all day, showed good hands, explosiveness, and won a trip to Baltimore with one of the fastest Illspeed times recorded at the camp. Auburn could be the team to beat here.
Peach County (GA) receiver Kearis Jackson snagged a nice touchdown over the defender during 1 on 1s. He is built well and has good speed for his 6-foot-0 203-pound frame. Marquez Ezzard is built similar but slightly bigger 6-foot-1 208-pounds. He showed consistent hands and will be tough to bring down after the catch. Both look like big running backs but showed they can get open and make big catches down the field.
2020 Troup County (GA) receiver Kobe Hudson is very smooth and showed great hands during the event. He got about as many reps as any other receiver there. He can get open easily on a quick slant, and showed he can catch the ball deep as well. He was one of the only receivers to catch a pass against 2018 cornerback Chris Smith. Hudson visited Georgia this weekend and will visit Alabama and Auburn later this week.
2019 Marietta WR Ramel Keyton had some nice catches on the day, and has a chance to earn a Georgia offer down the road. If they offer the Bulldogs would be tough to beat. Marist (GA) tight end John FitzPatrick also stood out, and made one impressive leaping catch in front of a defender. He’s coming off a recent Georgia visit.
Joshua Simon, Sam Pinckney, Michael Robertson Jr., Demarcus Gregory, Arik Gilbert, Zion Puckett, and Kendrell Scurry all made catches during the 1 on 1 session.
On defense, Alfred Thomas was very impressive on the defensive line. The Lanier Senior (AL) junior was consistent all day against a good offensive line group. Alabama commit Jordan Davis was very good off the edge, showing explosiveness and quick hands. He was selected to play in the next Under Armour All-America Game
The line featured multiple UGA targets including 2018 defensive end Brenton Cox. He was quick off the ball once again, and will continue to get better as he gets stronger and builds his craft. He showed good footwork in drills and lived up to the hype once again. North Side (TN) lineman Greg Emerson won multiple reps as well. He’s built well and was quicker than I expected.
Coynis Miller Jr., Christopher Simon, Shamar McCollum, Azeez Ojulari, and Kingsley Enagbare all one reps during the 1 on 1s.
The defensive back group was strong and led by Hapeville Charter (GA) cornerback Chris Smith and Alpharetta (GA) defensive back Jaycee Horn. Both looked great in coverage and competed hard to get every rep possible. Westlake (GA) athlete Myles “Spider” Sims and Carver (GA) safety Quindarious Monday also looked good during drills and in reps. 2019 Grayson (GA) Jalen Alexander stood out as well. He's a tough kid with great cover skills. One of many talented defensive backs in the 2019 class.
McEachern (GA) DB David Britton, Grayson (GA) DB Kenyatta Watson, Langston Hughes (GA) DB Telly Plummer, and East Nashville Magnet (TN) DB Jashon Watkins also impressed during the event.
At linebacker, Troup County OLB King Mwikuta stood out for the second week in a row. He will likely end up at defensive end down the road but worked out with the linebackers today. Athens Christian (GA) Richard Jibunor also worked out with the linebackers but will likely play defensive end. Both are built well and quick off the edge. They held their own in coverage at times, but will have trouble covering smaller and shiftier backs as they get bigger.
Valdosta (GA) linebacker Zakoby McClain is a smaller inside linebacker, but showed good instincts and quickness. North Gwinnett (GA) linebacker Warren Burell also impressed.
