Army game wrapup



Georgia only had one commit and two prospects in the Army All-American game in San Antonio on Saturday. Despite the low number of participants, the prospects with ties to UGA were impressive.

Commitment

OL John TheusBolles High (Fla.) - Theus had a solid week of practice and showed why he is one of the top rated offensive tackles in the country. Theus put his excellent athleticism and relentless style of play on display during the week, and his intensity was a big story line from the practices. During the game, Theus moved inside to play guard out of necessity, and did an excellent job getting to the second level and working against players that are bigger and harder to move. His hand placement was almost perfect, and his footwork has gotten even better since the summer. There is little doubt at this point that he will contribute right away for the Bulldogs.

Targets

Ath. Josh Harvey-Clemons, Lowndes High - Harvey Clemons, on the hoof, looked quite thin compared to the other linebackers. Despite his appearance, he showed why he considered a 5 star prospect. The South Georgia star showed excellent closing speed and an impressive ability to play down hill. His run fits were almost perfect, and he displayed an ability to play inside gaps and the edge. His speed and length are big time tools for him, but he needs to put on about 20 pounds before he will make big contributions at the next level.

RB Mike Davis, Stephenson High - One of the biggest stories on Davis this early week was a misunderstanding concerning his jersey number. After that incident, Davis turned up the intensity in practice and was one of the most dynamic and physical runners for either team. During the game, Davis played extremely well in space, and was also an effective blocker. He possesses great vision, but needs to work on running more compact in traffic. The Peach State star hasn't made many mistakes with the football, but his upper body moves quite a bit when he runs and can hamper ball security against big time competition. Davis also did well as a receiver, and is a weapon in multiple ways.
