Josh Harvey-Clemons Picks Georgia.


Mark Richt and the Bulldog coaching staff just got some great news as Lowndes High linebacker Josh Harvey-Clemons, the top ranked prospect in the state of Georgia and the top prospect left on Georgia's board, announced he'll be matriculating in Athens.

Harvey-Clemons had offers from literally every major football program in the country and ultimately chose the Bulldogs over Florida and Florida State. Rumors had circulated for a while that Georgia was the leader for the accomplished linebacker/wide receiver and licensed bail bondsman. But you can never quite rule out the Seminoles for a player from Lowndes, and Will Muschamp worked hard to sell Florida's appealing depth chart at outside linebacker (which is a good bit thinner than Todd Grantham's roster in Athens).

As with most of the top players from this class, we'll be doing a TMI showcase on Harvey-Clemons in the coming weeks. For now, suffice it to say that he's the prototype of what Todd Grantham looks for in an outside linebacker: a long, fast, aggressive defender who can rush the passer, drop into coverage, and play tough against the run. With a depth chart leaning heavily toward seniors and juniors, Harvey-Clemons was the best available player in the state at a critical position with a looming need. Until later . . .
