One of the best athletes in the state of Georgia is LaGrange's Jamius Gunsby. The 6-foot-4, 230 pound quarterback has the body to play several college positions, but coach Steve Pardue told KSR in September that he though Gunsby would remain at quarterback. "He's got a really strong arm and he's athletic," said Pardue. He's got the tools to be a really good quarterback."
Gunsby has had an offer from both Kentucky and Florida since the summer and nothing has really changed there. "Things are still the same," said Pardue. "If there have been changes, we haven't talked about it," he finished.
Gunsby struggled with an ankle injury this year holding his numbers down, but he was still able to lead LaGrange into the playoffs, ending the season with an 8-3 record. Jamius threw for 656 yards, 10 touchdowns and four interceptions on 42 completions and 83 attempts. He also carried the ball 54 times for 351 yards and seven touchdowns.
"He had a solid year," said Pardue. "The ankle injury limited him some."
The Wildcats may also have their eyes on a couple of other underclassmen coming through LaGrange. Devon Smith and Malcolm Dowell are both players who Kentucky may show interest in.
Smith led LaGrange with 89 tackles this season and 26 tackles for loss, three forced fumbles and one interception. The 6-foot, 222 pound linebacker. "He's got a chance (to be real good). Malcolm Dowell has probably got a chance. Malcolm will probably be a safety in college," said Pardue.
Malcolm Dowell is a 6-foot, 190 pound prospect who played linebacker for LaGrange this year. Dowell had 61 tackles, 19 tackles for loss, nine sacks and two forced fumbles.
KSR will keep track of the underclassmen and their progress through the next several months.
