Daily Dawg Thread: Xavian Sorey, 2021 Outside Linebacker

Sorey has a top group that includes Alabama, Auburn, Florida, Georgia, and LSU. Some feel his recruitment could come down to Alabama and Georgia, while others in Sorey’s circle feel this will be a Georgia vs Florida battle. So while Georgia might not be known as the outright leader, being thought of as being in the top two regardless solidifies the Dawgs’ position. The most recent intel suggests the Dawgs have some momentum in his recruitment. Sorey’s versatility would allow him to play inside or outside in Georgia’s 3-4 scheme, a highly-valuable skillset as the Dawgs have a major need at both linebacker positions this cycle. Sorey has not mentioned a decision timeline, stating he will commit when he knows the place that will best develop him for the next level. He is coming off a visit to Georgia.247Sports

Shows natural body control. More smooth than sudden. Plays fast but under control. Is not a violent tackler. Makes most of his plays defensively on the perimeter and doesn’t show a lot of downhill tackling. Has versatility to be an inside or outside linebacker. Size lends to inside. Not as rare physically as an edge defender. Needs to showcase that he has the demeanor necessary to be dominant at linebacker and inside the tackle box but has the traits necessary to be an elite modern linebacker.
