Somebody commented earlier today that offensive line depth gets him hot… here’s the kind of thing that turns me on:
… the early lead for breakout player of the spring goes to James DeLoach. The sophomore outside linebacker really started generating buzz toward the end of last season and that has only continued as the combination of physical maturity and athleticism is beginning to manifest itself with his play on the field. DeLoach is now running with the first team at strongside outside linebacker and is looking hard to beat out.
“DeLoach is looking real good,” said inside linebacker Ramik Wilson, who is also starting. “He’s coming off the edge real fast. We’ve been watching film and he and Jordan (Jenkins) are looking real good. James is setting the edge and making the ball bounce to us so we can make more tackles. He’s doing a good job.”
DeLoach signed with Georgia out of Jenkins County seemingly as a throw-in with his good buddy, noseguard Jonathan Taylor. But he has totally remade his body just a year into his career and has maintained his quickness despite carrying 265 pounds on his 6-foot-3 frame.
Of course, if he doesn’t star at G-Day, that’ll be the end of it, right?
