A look at the top recruits from this past Friday.

Clinch County

Tahj Williams, 6-1/210, LB (2018) – Williams can no longer be considered a sleeper prospect; this was his second in person evaluation and he impressed both times. Versus Ocilla (Ga.) Irwin County the inside linebacker was the Panthers second leading tackler with 13 stops. Though he is playing inside backer, Williams most likely projects as an outside linebacker. He demonstrated excellent lateral movement and the ability to chase down plays from behind. Williams is chalked full of quick twitch muscle fibers and is a player colleges need to evaluate on film. He is receiving plenty of interest, but has yet to receive an offer.

Sleeper: Darius Dorsey, 5-11/200, S/LB (2020) – The hybrid S/LB was very active this past Friday recording seven tackles, three TFL’s and one sack. Though he may not have the ideal height for a linebacker, but he does possess the build and speed needed to play this position at the next level. Dorsey is at his best when attacking the ball. On more than one occasion his inside blitzes wreaked havoc on the Indian rushing attack. His film is already up on hudl from this game and college coaches at the FCS and FBS level should take a look.

Special Note: Trezman Marshall, 6-1/225, ATH (2019) – South Georgia’s top recruit in the class of 2019 is still not back too full speed. He played on just two offensive serious while handling kickoff duties. It could be a few more weeks before we see this heavily coveted football star back at 100-percent.

Irwin County

Marlon Jackson, 6-4/235, DE (2018) – Jackson transferred from Fitzgerald (Ga.) just before the start of the 2017 season. There is no question that he has gained some serious muscle mass from a year ago. Jackson has a massive upper body with long arms and a lean lower half. Versus Homerville (Ga.) Clinch County he recorded six tackles and one TFL. Tough he was considered a pass rushing specialist last season, he could possibly grow into a strong-side defensive end. He may have had the biggest hit of the game spinning off a block and bouncing outside to take down a Panther ball carrier. At this time his lone offer is from Troy. College coaches looking for this hard sought body type need to contact Head Coach Buddy Nobles.

DJ Lundy, 6-2/225, RB/LB (2020) – Lundy is one of the most heavily recruited football players in South Georgia for the class of 2020. He currently has offers from Auburn, Mississippi State, South Carolina, Troy and UAB. In this game Lundy carried the ball 13 times for 76 yards while recording one tackle, exiting the game with a minor injury in the third quarter.  Before the injury he had begun to completely wear down the Clinch County defense.
This young man definitely sticks out physically amongst his peers; Lundy is the biggest running back I have seen in action this year other than Sylvania (Ga.) Screven County defensive tackle CJ Wright. Right now it’s hard to say what position he will play in college, he could be a giant running back, H-back, inside linebacker or even a defensive end. To give recruiters an idea how strong this young man is, he finished third at the 2017 GHSA-A Wrestling Championships in the Heavyweight Class (285-pounds).

Javon Stanley, 6-0/205, ATH (2019) – For those not familiar with Stanley, he is already a three-year starter for the Indians. He falls in the athlete category because he plays safety, cornerback, linebacker and some running back for Irwin County. Versus Clinch County he recorded three solo tackles, one INT and carried the ball three times for 13 yards. He was left on an island versus 6-foot-6 wide out Jeremiah Johnson most of the night. Stanley has very good lateral movement and excellent ball skills. On his first quarter interception he out-battled the taller Johnson for the ball. Right now he most likely projects as a safety or outside backer.

Sleeper: Chad Miller, 5-11/160, S (2020) – Coach Nobles is really high on this young defensive back, and I could see why. Miller has good length and long arms but is slight in stature, but make no mistake this skinny sophomore is a headhunter. He is not afraid to come up in run support and cut the ball carrier in half. With more than two years of high school left he should eventually fill out his frame. Versus the Panthers he recorded six tackles, one TFL and had a key forced fumble in the second half to help seal the victory. He is one college coaches need to put on their recruiting radar.
