WATCH: 4-star UGA Commit DOMINATES In Senior Season Highlights

November 25, 2020

The ride is finally over for four-star defensive lineman Tyrion Ingram-Dawkins‍. The Gaffney (SC) star saw his season come to an end this past weekend, the next step is Athens, Georgia.

The big 6-foot-5 300-pounder and top overall prospect in South Carolina chose the Bulldogs over the Gamecocks, Volunteers, and the Tar Heels in late October. He’s now one of the nation’s highest ranked defensive linemen and he has the highlights to back up his ranking.

Ingram-Dawkins is ranked as the No.10 defensive tackle prospect and the No.149 prospect in the country according to the Composite Rankings.

“His biggest strength is his size and length”, Gaffney (SC) defensive coordinator and defensive line coach Randy Birch told Dawg Post.  “Obviously, I love his first step off the ball. He can win with quickness when he wants but at same time he can win with power. That helps him keep the OL off balance. His football I.Q. has also allowed for him to play every position across our DL. This helps us keep other teams from game planning for him because we can move him around.”

What is Ingram-Dawkins working on to reach his full potential?

“The main thing he needs to work on is adding strength”, Birch added. “He has major strength potential. His weight room numbers have really increased over the last 9 months but Covid has hindered where he could really be as far as overall strength. He also is working on his pad level.”

Birch said that as over earlier this month, Ingram-Dawkins can bench press 330-pounds, squat 505-pounds, and can power clean 315-pounds.
