# OF OFFERS: 24 offers
UGA OFFER: Yes, February 28, 2018
Christian Harris is a 6-1 225-pound four-star Athlete from Baton Rouge, Louisianna. He ranks as the No. 13 ATH and the No. 7 prospect in Louisianna. Harris currently holds 24 offers with the latest coming from Arkansas on April 23. He visited Georgia for the G-Day game on April 21. Prior to that Harris visited Alabama on April 7. Georgia offered the ATH on February 28 and appear to have put him at the top of the list. Glenn Schumann seems to be the primary recruiter for Harris after the coach spent a good 20 minutes or so talking to him on the sideline.
Harris is a big-time player that could stand out for Georgia at the next level. I expect the Bulldogs to push hard for the Baton Rouge native and challenge Coach O for him. According to his 247Sports account, it appears it’s between LSU and Alabama, but after last weekend, I doubt that’s the case anymore.
Harris primarily plays cornerback and wide receiver for his high school, but at 6-1 225 he’s got the build of an inside linebacker. The first thing I notice about his film is how he just overpowers guys. Harris has a nice set of hands and is pretty quick. He can go up and catch the ball and knows his coverages well. On the defense, he reads quarterbacks and tackles in the open field nicely. Harris hits hard too, and after he catches the ball can run over a defender. Like i said before, with his size he could convert to a linebacker and with Schumann at the helm I expect that to be a selling point for him.
HT, WT: 6-3, 303
SCHOOL: North Stanly
CITY, STATE: New London, NC
# OF OFFERS: 11 offers
UGA OFFER: Yes, January 18, 2018
C.J. Clark is a 6-3 303-pound four-star defensive tackle from New London, North Carolina. He ranks as the No. 17 DT and the No. 10 prospect in NC. Clark currently holds 11 offers with the latest coming from West Virginia on April 10. He came to G-Day on April 21 and was on campus Feb. 24 for a visit. Prior to G-Day, he visited NC State on April 7 and North Carolina on March 8 and Feb. 27.
The Bulldogs offered him back on January 8th. Head coach Kirby Smart asked to speak to him personally during pre-game of G-Day which appears to me he’s highly sought after. He’s a big kid and looks every bit of 303 pounds. I expect Georgia to go hard after this one as it appears his recruitment is wide open. According to his 247Sports account, there isn’t a clear leader and he hasn’t been predicted to go anywhere. I expect all that to change by the middle of football season.
Clark’s competed in various camps this offseason and I expect him to continue doing that. The first thing I notice about him is he has nice footwork. He uses his hands well too. Clark explodes through a defense and for a guy that weighs 303 pounds he moves pretty quickly. He’s patient and waits for his moment, however, in some of these clips he just out powers the offensive line and blows right past them. Clarke doesn’t have to have many moves against some of these teams but will need to work on that at the next level. His size and general capabilities make him an excellent target for D-1 schools.
