Offensive All-Signeee Team

A look at the former Georgia High School stars that could have the biggest impact as freshmen in 2008 on offense.

The state of Georgia was packed with a plethora of senior prep talent in 2007-08 and the majority of those prospects signed on the dotted line with the college of their choosing earlier this month.

Here is a look at the players that expects to have an instant impact on offense this upcoming season.

DeRon Furr
Signed with: Auburn
The talented signal-caller that led his Carver-Columbus High squad to the state championship brings mobility and arm strength to the Tigers. Helping matters is the fact that Furr has been enrolled at Auburn since early January and thus getting a head start on learning the offensive system being implemented by new offensive coordinator Tony Franklin.

Khiry Battle
Signed with: Arkansas
With the early departure of both starting running backs Darren McFadden and Felix Jones, new Arkansas coach Bobby Petrino will be looking to fill a massive hole in the backfield. Rising junior Michael Smith has the inside track in regards to the starting job but Battle has the opportunity to earn immediate playing time for the Hogs.

Jarmon Fortson
Signed with Florida State
Georgia was stacked with extremely talented wide receiver prospects this year so this position is a toss up. But with respect to players such as Brice Butler and Chris Jackson, who both signed with programs that have a large number of both underclassmen and upperclassmen receivers, Fortson will find himself in a position at FSU that is lacking bodies. The former Carver-Columbus star could also find playing time at tight end for the Seminoles.

Omoregie Uzzi
Signed with: Georgia Tech
With new head coach Paul Johnson on board, it's a safe bet that there will be more than one position on the depth chart open for the taking in Atlanta. Uzzi has the tools and the physicality to step in and play right away if need be. The stout offensive lineman was the top-ranked offensive line prospect in the Peach State for a reason this past season and his blocking skills are ideal for Johnson's offensive system.

Nick McRae
Signed with: Georgia Tech
For the exact same reasons that it's likely that Uzzi will make a push for early playing time, the same can be said for his future teammate, McRae. The former Dublin High standout is athletic and can move well for his size; just the type of lineman that the Yellow Jackets needed.
