Georgia’s front seven stuffed the Georgia Tech offense on Saturday. And in the stands was a visitor who’ll get the chance to do the same in a couple of years.
6’4, 290 pound IMG Academy defensive tackle Warren Brinson committed to the ‘Dawgs this weekend over offers from a Tennessee and Minnesota and interest from a growing number of schools. The former Savannah Christian Raider transferred to IMG before this season and made an immediate impact. Brinson had 7.5 tackles for loss and 27 total tackles for the Ascenders, second only to 2019 UGA commit and fellow Savannahian Nolan Smith.
Brinson is the type of big, physical interior tackle Georgia has needed this year in the absence of John Atkins and Trenton Thompson. The emergence of freshman Jordan Davis has been a promising development, but we need a couple more reliable 310 pound space eaters. Brinson has the potential to slide into that role.
While he has work to do in terms of technique (like most high school linemen) Brinson’s got good lower body mass and moves his feet well. He actually does remind me a little of Jordan Davis which, again, so far appears to be a promising thing to say.
Brinson is the fourth commitment for Georgia’s 2020 class. Three are defensive tackles, the other is five star offensive tackle Broderick Jones out of Lithonia. Combine that with the seven defensive linemen currently in the 2019 class, and it’s easy to see where Kirby Smart’s roster improvement interests lie. Until later...
