Georgia Bulldogs’ recruiting class has gotten a lot stronger on the defensive line after Jordan Davis committed to the program Thursday.
Davis is a promising star at defensive tackle. The native of North Carolina is listed at 6’6″ and 330 pounds. You don’t even have to see pictures of this man, he is huge even if you just imagine him. He’s a 4-star prospect who is ranked as the No. 13 defensive tackle from his home state, No. 27 defensive tackle recruit in the nation and No. 312 recruit overall.
With a total of 650 players at the U.S. Army All-American Bowl Underclassman Combine, it’s difficult for most athletes to stand out. But that’s not a problem for Mallard Creek (Charlotte) defensive tackle. I actually know Mallard Creek since my old high school went up against them almost every year. They are locked and loaded at every position on both sides of the ball. It’s no surprise Georgia was able to lock up a stud defensive lineman from this high school.
At his size, the junior obviously passes the eye test. You can literally just look at the kid and see how good of a player he is. But he’s also explosive for a player of his size and has skills to become a natural leader. Believe it or not, before he transferred to Mallard Creek, he only played basketball at his old school. It’s a good thing he made the switch to football! Also, despite not having a plethora of football experience, the fact Davis is already this highly regarded indicates he can become a star. With the right coaching and development over the next four years, I see him turning into an animal on that D line.
With Davis aboard, head coach Kirby Smart has now juiced up Georgia’s 2018 recruiting class with 11 commits who are 4-star and/or 5-star prospects, including quarterback Justin Fields, running back Zamir White, edge rusher Azeez Ojulari and fellow defensive tackle Devonte Wyatt.
Keep an eye out for this man on the D line. I expect him to manhandle anyone who stands across him. Bulldogs’ fans, get excited because y’all are stacked on that line, with the chance to get even better. Check out his official word on Twitter:
