After being short on depth for offensive linemen the past few seasons, the Peach State is making up for the lack of big men in a big way.
"Starting with #1
, Georgia has 8 of the Top 33 players that could end up on the offensive line in college including standout two way lineman
," says South regional recruiting editor Scott Kennedy, who adds that the state is also deep at another position. "Georgia is quickly building a reputation as the linebacker state as well, and
of Stephenson leads the charge this year. Since the days of Herschel Walker and before, the running back position has been the glamor position in the deep south,
holds the top spot for that position this year."
An offensive lineman stands at the top of the charts in Minnesota as well with
leading the way.
"There are 15 solid football prospects in the state of Minnesota in 2005 including three sets of teammates. Offensive lineman Matt Carufel (Cretin-Derham Hall) has scholarship offers from several major D-1 programs. Carufel’s teammate Kim Royston is committed to Wisconsin, or is he? Royston said last week that he’s going to step back from that verbal commitment to look at other schools," says Midwest recruiting analyst
Chris Pool. "Jordon McMichael (6-5/230/4.7) is a gifted tight end from The Breck School in Minneapolis. Nebraska and Wisconsin are two of 10 schools that have offered McMichael a scholarship. McMichael’s teammate,
, is a solid wide receiver still looking for his first scholarship offer.
, a fine signal caller from Arden Hills (Mounds View) was impressive during the spring and summer camp circuit. Weber has given Minnesota his verbal commitment. Weber’s teammate, Shawn McWhirter, is a terrific defensive end prospect that has several scholarship offers."
made waves recently by committing to Nebraska,
steals the show by taking home the top spot in the state of Missouri.
"Adrian Clayborn has the athleticism to play multiple positions, including H-back, tight end, and defensive end," says Midlands/Southwest recruiting analyst Stacey Dean. "But I expect him to take his skills to defensive end and maybe even defensive tackle in college. If he works hard in the weight room and keeps his conditioning up, he could be player there."
