IN FOCUS VIDEO: Georgia Commit Clint Boling

ALPHARETTA – Dean Legge's thoughts on Georgia commit Clint Boling.

Georgia needs offensive linemen – there's no question about that. The Bulldogs' future on the offensive line is in such peril that numbers are needed there as soon this recruiting season. Kevin Perez, Josh Davis and John Miller are on campus, but are redshirting this season. Clifton Geathers, Justin Anderson and Ben Harden are all at Hargrave. If everyone stays healthy and all those at Hargrave make it to Athens, the Bulldogs will have the numbers they need for 2007 – albeit with little to no college experience.

That's where Clint Boling comes in. There are some things you know you get with Boling. He's big 6-6, 275; he's smart; and he wants to be a Dawg. He was so happy after committing to Georgia in July. I don't think Boling is a project, but he does (like all high school linemen) have some things to learn.

Boling could be more aggressive in attacking defenders down the field, and there are times when he could get more than one block in a play. Getting to the second level of defenders is something he should work on now before he gets swamped learning everything he must learn in college.

Boling seemed to get tired as the game when on – he played nearly every down on offense and defense, however and at some point he is going to get worn out. Also, Boling is not getting a lot of help out there. Chattahoochee is not a very good football team, and they are overwhelmed at the classification they are at right now.

Boling could play some guard in college, but he seems most like a tackle to me. His footwork is good for high school, but I think he will get much better in college. If he can add 35 more pounds to get over 300 pounds he should be able to deal better with college defensive ends. That being said, it seems like it's taking Boling a little bit of time to get used the weight he added from last season.

NOTE: The video below is NOT a highlight reel. It is about 50% of the downs Boling played – specifically the ones he was involved in. I think it is a little more realistic way of seeing what a high school player is like.
