The Next Generation of Bulldogs

CHRIS BURNETTE - OL (Guard) - 6-3, 285

Burnette Says: "We lost to Lagrange after they made a 55 yard field goal. They kicked it with about five minutes left and we lost 17-14. I had 10 pancakes against them."

Our Thoughts: Burnette is a versatile lineman with great feet, good technique, and he will play guard at UGA. He also has a 5.12 GPA.

Next: Travel to Cairo Nov. 14.

WASHAUN EALEY - RB - 5-11, 200, 4.5

Ealey Says:"We did good against Calvary Day and we won 45-7. I had a couple of touchdowns and I ran for 101 yards on just eight carries. They just wanted to take me out early and rest me. I didn't play too much."

Our Thoughts: Ealey is a back with great visit, great cut back ability, and great body lean. He can run tough on the inside or burst outside.

Next: Home vs. Greenville Nov. 14.

MICHAEL GILLIARD - LB - 6-1, 205, 4.5

Gilliard Says: "We beat Houston County 17-0 and we had a great game on defense. We held them to 81 yards in the first half and only four yards in the second half. I finished the game with 11 tackles."

Our Thoughts: Gilliard is an athlete just growing into a linebacker. He can run, he is good in pursuit, and he is only going to get better.

Next: Season is over.

TOBY JACKSON - DE - 6-4, 255, 4.79

Jackson Says: "We did good this game and we beat Georgia Mason 35-21. I played a pretty good game and I had four tackles and three sacks."

Our Thoughts: Jackson will make an impact in Athens the minute he steps on campus. He is explosive off the ball and he plays both the run and pass well.

Next: At University of Tennessee Nov. 13.

ABRY JONES - DT - 6-3, 273

Jones Says: "The team played great and we stopped a good Colquitt County defense. We won the game 31-7 and I had six tackles, four sacks, and I forced a fumble."

Our Thoughts: Jones is a DL that has an extremely high ceiling. He is quick, he is a great technician, and he will make the move inside at UGA.

Next: Hosting Union Grove Nov. 14.

DALLAS LEE - OL (Guard/Center) - 6-4, 290

Lee Says: "We beat GAC into submission and we won the game 34-6. I had a few tackles and probably five or six domination blocks."

Our Thoughts: Lee is a very strong and very physical player in the trenches. He is athletic enough to help UGA on DL if needed, but they like him as an inside OL right now.

Next: At home vs. Heard County

AUSTIN LONG - OL (Tackle) - 6-5, 270

Long Says: "We lost to Brentwood 40-6 in the first round of the playoffs. I played a pretty good game and I had eight pancakes and I did not allow a sack."

Our Thoughts: Long was a huge get for UGA at offensive tackle. He has great feet, long arms, he is very athletic, and he still has room to fill out physically.

Next: Season is over.

DERRICK LOTT - DL - 6-5, 273

Lott Says: "We finished with a 7-0 win over South Cobb. I played a good game - I finished with about 10 total tackles and three sacks on defense. I also had one catch for 15 yards."

Our Thoughts: Lott could be the most athletic lineman in Georgia. He has great size, feet, athleticism, and potential. He needs to continue to learn the position, improve his technique, and add strength, but his future is bright.

Next: Season is over.

JORDAN LOVE - Corner - 6-0, 185, 4.43

Love Says:"We won 13-0 and finished 9-1, but we did not make the playoffs. I had three tackles on defense and I finished with 265 yards of total offense."

Our Thoughts: Love is a big corner that plays very physical. He grew up playing RB, so that toughness translates over to the corner position. He has good hips and athleticism too.

Next: Season is over.

Arthur Lynch - TE - 6-5, 240, 4.7

Lynch Says: "We beat Attleboro 35-21 to win our conference and clinch the playoffs. I had two catches for 75 yards and a touchdown on offense and eight tackles,, two tackles for a loss, two QB hurries, and a sack on defense."

Our Thoughts: Lynch is the complete package at tight end. He has the size everyone looks for and he has soft hands and nice blocking skills.

Next: At Durfee Nov. 14.


Mettenberger Says: "We won and we are in the playoffs. We beat Morgan County 41-12. I finished 16-23 for 185 yards and I threw three touchdowns and I also ran one in."

Our Thoughts: Mettenberger is a true gunslinger at QB. He has one of the strongest arms in the country, he has no problems seeing down field, and he can make any throw.

Next: At Gainesville Nov. 14.

DEXTER MOODY - LB - 6-1, 205, 4.5

Moody Says: "We won our last regular season game 45-7. I think I did alright - I had a touchdown catch for about 30 yards. I had a few more catches and I had a couple of nice runs too. I had five tackles on defense."

Our Thoughts: Moody is one of the top athletes in Georgia. He plays the game at a high speed and very aggressive. He loves to hit and attack.

Next: Host Greenville Nov. 14.

AARON MURRAY - QB - 6-1, 205, 4.64

Murray Says: Murray is out with an injury, but Plant defeated Jefferson-Tampa 30-6 Friday night.

Our Thoughts: Murray may be the most accurate QB in the country. He throws with touch, he is very consistent, he is a winner, and he brings a lot to the table.

Next: At Robinson Nov. 14

CHASE VASSER - LB - 6-4, 219, 4.58

Vasser Says: "We lost to Creekview 69-35. We were doing good, but our offense gave up three touchdowns. The coaches held me out of the second half, but I finished with 10 tackles, a forced fumble, and a fumble recovery."

Our Thoughts: Vasser looks the part physically and he plays with a lot of intensity. He has great range, very good speed, and he is really coming into his own at linebacker.

Next: Season is over.

SHAWN WILLIAMS - Safety - 6-1, 200, 4.5

Williams Says: "We lost to Cook, but we played a pretty good game. I had nine total tackles on defense and I did not play any offense that game. I returned a kick 70 yards for a touchdown."

Our Thoughts: Williams is a very athletic safety. He has great ball skills, he can play inside the box against the run, and he can drop back into coverage. He looks like a LB, but is a very sound safety.

Next: Season is over.

Rantavious Wooten - WR - 5-10, 158, 4.5

Wooten Says: "We beat Suncoast 45-7 and I did not play that much. Also, we only ran about three or four different plays because Pahokee was there scouting us. I finished with three catches for 30 yards this game."

Our Thoughts: Wooten is exactly what Georgia needs in this class. He is someone very dangerous in space that that makes people miss. He plays bigger than his size and he has great quickness and acceleration.

Next: At Pahokee Nov. 15.
