ATHENS - We’ve toured Georgia and Miami in the last 14 days, and there’s a lot going on out there in recruiting world. 

Where to start?

Start off with watching Warren McClendon‍ and Brunswick take on Ware County on Friday night. McClendon is an imposing offensive lineman. Its obvious why schools are pursuing him in terms of his size (6-5, 290). Still, he’s not massive like many of the recruits the Bulldogs have signed under Sam Pittman. 

In addition, McClendon is raw. He's got a ways to go in the development department. When an opposing player is near him he does what he needs to do in order to dominate, but movement isn’t his forte. I wanted to see him run an strike folks more. He played left tackle for the Pirates that night, and nothing went right for Brunswick. They turned the ball over over and over and found themselves on the wrong side of a first half beating just north of the Okefenokee Swamp.

I was impressed with UGA commit and Stephenson DL Nazir Stackhouse‍ on Thursday night when the Jaguars traveled to Grayson (I was also disappointed, a long with at least two college assistants I spoke with, not to see and of the marquee Grayson players strap up for the scrimmage).

Stephenson DL Nazir Stackhouse‍

Stackhouse was often double teamed, but rarely contained when I watched him. On one play in particular, he disengaged from his would-be blocker and ran down a skill player in the open field down the line of scrimmage in a play that was too slow developing - in part because of his effort. 

Again, I was impressed. He pressured the QB much of the night and was in the backfield often. He played the way a high-level recruit should play in high school… he was impossible not to notice. 

Just down the road, Lithonia OL Broderick Jones‍ is going to “try” to enroll early, according to his coach.

As it relates to the future of walk-on and No. 3 QB Stetson Bennett - he is being recruited “like never before” to stay at Georgia according to a well-connected figure. Its hard to know what the future could be there.
