Brandon Lang is one of the top defensive end prospects in the state of Georgia this year. He is a member of the GAVSV All-State Team, and he is a Top 25 defensive end in the country by TheInsiders.com. Tucker had their hands full with a stacked Marist team on Friday night, and one of the reasons was because they were able to frustrate Lang.
"I only had about two tackles in that game," said Lang. "They
kept running to the opposite side. I even switched sides (during the second
quarter), and then they would run the other way. They are a real good team. We
have Dunwoody and North Springs coming up next."
Lang took the short trip to Athens Saturday morning to take in Georgia's first
SEC game, and he came away very impressed.
"They beat them pretty bad. We got to hang out with a lot of the older
players that had come back to watch the game. I got to speak to coach Rucker and
to Coach Fabris (Defensive ends Coach). They said that they were just waiting to
see me play in person before they offer me a scholarship, and Coach Fabris is
going to be at one of my games soon. Georgia is the offer that I've really been
waiting on. After that, I'm looking at Florida State the hardest, then probably
Louisville, Maryland, Arkansas, and Virginia."
Lang is an explosive defensive end prospect that has tremendous quickness. He
lives in the backfield of opponents, and Coach Alan Chadwick and the Marist War
Eagles were wise to run to the opposite side of Lang. Lang is such a good
athlete, that he was lining up at wide receiver on Friday night, but he will
definitely play with his hand on the ground on the next level.
