The whistling football

I don’t know how credible you find Tee Martin to be in analyzing Georgia’s recruiting, but he sounds pretty impressed with the quarterbacks that have committed to the ’09 class.

“I would say the top three in the country are Zach [Mettenberger], [Matt] Barkley and [Aaron] Murray,” Martin said. “Georgia has two [Mettenberger and Murray] of the top three. Or at least two of the top five.”

He would know, too. Martin has worked with all three in his capacity as a coach at Nike combines and the Elite 11 camps. He works with quarterbacks from around the country both in Atlanta and on the road. Last week he was in Tuscaloosa, Ala., and had a chance to work with Mettenberger.

Carter Strickland posed the rhetorical question at the beginning of the article as to whether Georgia might have too much depth at quarterback.  There’s no such thing.

    Wow. That is some good news. Senator, you have probably read Lucius Clay’s posts on Athens Online about Zach. He feels that he may very well end up being the better prospect over Murray. I do wish we were getting them a year apart that way a redshirt year could put two years between them. CMR has said at FSU he liked his QBs first year at starter to be his redshirt junior season. It looks like UGA is putting itself in position to do that starting with Logan Gray.

    Anyway if UGA lands another quality offensive tackle or two, Brown (Memphis WR) and the LB Jones this will be a great class (maybe best ever) both in terms of filling needs and the quality of player.

    Tee Martin worked with North Cobb High School last year and helped to develop their running QB into a serviceable passer recruited by Oregon, Kentucky and others.
