PostSubject: 2018 SicEmDawgs.net Recruiting Insider   Mon 17 May 2010, 9:38 pm

Graduating Seniors - 14

Scholarships Availible - 17

Positions of Need - WR, QB.

Recruiting Heavily - WR, QB, FS, SS, OLB.


Key Starting Losses

QB Lamar Herron SR
RB Luke Miles SR
RB Ryan Walker JR ***
FB Mike Walker SR
WR Dominique Brown SR
WR Blake Jones SR
WR Doug Gore SR
RG Scott Herman SR
SR Kevin Lee SR
DT Gavin Collins SR
LOLB Brandon Chambers SR
CB Shannon Lambert SR

*** Notes underclassmen with the option to elect, especially after a good three years.


QB - Losing Lamar Herron is defenitely going to hurt the Bulldogs the most. Herron has ran the offence for four years now and despite some slippery slopes through his underclass years - he's established himself as a offensive FORCE through his Junior SEC clinching, Sugar Bowl winning season and could have the opportunity to repeat that this year. Thankfully, Coach Macc spent a lot of time recruiting QB's within the past couple years so there will be a big position battle this off season. Unfortunately, it's unlikely the Dawgs get another 4 year starter.

RB - Luke Miles established his role as a Bulldog early. He's still argueably their most talented, aware back but he's not found a lot of time on the field basically due to the athleticism of some recruits recently. He's always been a steady, hard nosed runner who will help his team win, but for the Dawgs replacing his role will be last year transfer junior Jared Larson.

WR - While it may look like the Dawgs receiving corps is depleted, they've done an excellent job improving their younger players. Julian Moss will assume the role of the teams highlight receiver, if he hasn't done so allready in his sophmore year with 454 yards this year. They've also done a good job quietly recruiting behind their three big senior class receivers in Chris Gibson, Jerome Salas and Joe Mitchell. The Dawgs are also hot on the trail to find two receivers in this years class, full of playmakers.

Offensive Line - Despite losing Scott Herman the Bulldog offensive line is VERY young and VERY talented. Despite giving up a lot of experience, Coach Macc has made it a point to recruit some very talented, strong linemen to protect his backs. They will continue to progress, get older and even better. This years offensive line is argueably the best the Dawgs have seen since Macc's tenure as HC.

Defensive Line - This is where the Dawgs will be hurting. RE Kevin Lee and DT Gavin Collins are easily the teams best defensive players and make the most impact, unfrotunately their both 5th year seniors. All American Gavin Collins is an all around machine who continuously disrupts the backfield and Kevin Lee is a quarterback's nightmare. They take a huge loss in this department and will need to do some shuffling in the off-season to continue the pressure they keep on the opposing teams QBs.

Linebackers - Although their losses seem rather slim, the Dawgs linebacking corps is very young and strong. Greg Gray appears to be the teams replacement right now in his sophmore year, he's patiently waiting on the bench and been making a big impact in special teams to show he's earned time. Brandon Chambers will be missed, his presence on the field and leadership skills in helping develop his underclassmen will be the biggest loss this offseason in the linebacking corps.

Cornerbacks - It always hurts to lose your team captain, but in this sport it's rare to see a non-senior captain anyways. Shannon Lambert is probably the best cover corner Coach Macc has ever had. What he may lack in speed and athleticism, he's made up for in hard work, dedication and studying how to be an amazing corner. There's nothing but smooth sailing for Lambert's future - he's projected a mid first to early second round pick and any NFL team that scoops him up will be very fortunate.

Safetys - SS Corey Martin should be back for his senior year, depending how he finsihes the season. His tackles dropped a bit this year but his productivity hasn't one bit - 11 tackles for loss and 4 sacks. FS Token Williams is a freshman this year but shows a lot of promise from the free safety position.

2018 Commitments



JOEL MORRIS *****
Quarterback
Conyers, Georgia
Conyers Tech

Ht: 6'0
Wt: 194 lbs
40: 4.52
Class: 2018

Strengths

Speed - Amazing speed for the quarterback position. The Bulldogs won't be dropping a single dime as Lamar Herron graduates in terms of pocket mobility, as Morris is recording Herron's very best 40 time on campus allready as a HS senior.

Accuracy - Usually when you see kids who play QB that can run, their accuracy isn't very good. Morris allready has college-ready accuracy that will not throw very many interceptions. He hasn't thrown one in a very tough D3 Georgia HS division in almost two years. He's very accurate and precise, but also very contious about decisions.

Weaknesses

Size - For being the type of player who makes a name for himself making plays with his feet to buy himself time, he'll be very suseptible to injury within his first couple years based on the fact that he doesn't have a very BIG body. He's very thick for a quarterback and suprisingly athletic for his size but he looks small on the field with college LBs. He won't be able to, like Lamar run and make plays and then steam roll a defensive back.

"This kid is a terrific athlete who will certainly make some noise in spring practice in regards to our quarterback position battle," Coach Macc said.

"I love UGA. I was born a Bulldog and the minute they decided to recruit me I knew right away I'd want to go there. I get to stay home and play infront of my friends and family. I can't wait," Joel Morris said about his commitment.

"I always want to win. I'll do whatever it takes. I've played injured almost my whole career so all the media attention about how I won't be tough enough can get thrown out the door. I hope to be running the 40 in the 4.4's by the time I get on campus," Morris said about his skills.




ZACH LEWIS ****
Wide Receiver
West Odessa, Texas
Permian

Ht: 6'5
Wt: 191 lbs
40: 4.46
Class: 2018

Strengths

Size - Lewis has a terrific football body that will allow him to make plays over shorter defensive backs. He has a knack for using his size to his advantage, catching the ball well outside with his hands, making it nearly impossible to make a play on him if a corner tries blanketing him.

Charisma - Zach is the typical hightlight reel receiver - loud, obnoxious, very team oreintated but also very, very skilled. He has the ability to make plays consistently and he loves to showboat, within the rules. He's the new breed and generation of Terrel Owens - without the off the field antics.

Weaknesses

Ball in Hands - Zach could improve his skills after he's caught the ball. He won't immediately be burning corners off the line so when he makes the short, possession catches he's supposed to make, he could improve his ability to shake defenders and make it down field. This comes easily with practice, better blocking up front as well as confidence... if he really needs any.

"Zach is a great receiver with unlimited potential for us. He'll be a terrific Bulldog. He'll be right in there in the position battle but if he doesn't crack our top 3, we'll red shirt him for a year so he can have four years of starting experience," Coach Macc said about his plans for Lewis.

"Like my homie Ryan Walker says - UGA ALL DAY!" Zach told reporters about his commitment.
