In case you missed it, Rusty Mansell posted some great footage from this week's U.S. Army All-American Bowl practices. Rusty got plenty of footage of Jacob Eason throwing lasers and Mecole Hardman running like a blur. But for my money the most exciting clip may have been this one of defensive tackle commit Julian Rochester in one-on-ones.

Rochester is a massive dude, who already has both great upper and lower body strength. As he gets into better shape with solid nutrition and conditioning/explosiveness training, the sky is really the limit for him. To say nothing of his already impressive dancing:

If Georgia can add Lanier defensive tackle and fellow Army All-American Derrick Brown to the fold (to say nothing of Jackson standout Michail Carter and Americus's Tyler Clark, who is already committed), we could be looking at perhaps the best defensive tackle class Georgia's ever recruited. Add them to returning contributors like Trenton Thompson, John Atkins, and DaQuan Hawkins, and the Red and Black may have the nucleus of a solid defensive tackle platoon for the next 3-4 years. Until later . . .
