A Family Affair
As I get back to providing updates for teams and recruits across the Southeast I will touch on a programs recent hot streak of recruitment's. The University of Georgia is off to a blistering pace already having 19 commitments currently. Because of dismissals and transfers the Bulldogs have the potential to sign as many as 30 kids this year. One of the most recent commitments was four star recruit Uriah LeMay. Uriah, a 6'1 180 lbs. wide reciever out of North Carolina found more than just a program that could showcase his talents. The University of Georgia is home to his older brother back-up quarterback, Christian LeMay. Uriah in my opinion will have a quicker impact on the program than even his red-shirt sophomore brother. This uber-talented hybrid receiver will cause a lot of mismatches against teams across the Southeast. Uriah's thick lower body and aggressive running style he will cause fits for defenders trying to make the tackle after the catch. The biggest advantage that Uriah has is his ability to play all over the offensive side of the ball. Uriah can play the slot position as a bigger receiver, almost like a tight-end flexed out and he can also be motioned into the backfield and run the ball with his strong stature. Uriah's ability to catch the ball away from his body is another strong reason that he could see the field early on. It is no secret that some Georgia receivers in the past have had problems securing the catch. I picture Uriah as a high school version of Terrell Owens. A player who can run the routes in the middle of the field and break it for a deep one or a receiver who can get you a first down when you need it. Uriah is a very good route runner who will only improve as he gets older and more experienced. That coupled with his ability to continue to gain strength and speed will only increase his chances of seeing early playing time come next fall. Check our Uriah's tapes and see if you see the potential of this little brother.
