Rosemy, Carter, Brinson continue Bulldogs’ success in the Sunshine State

Wide-receiver Marcus Rosemy hails from St. Thomas Aquinas High School in Fort Lauderdale, the same school that produced current NFL and former Georgia great Geno Atkins.

The moment Rosemy steps on campus, our receiver room will improve. At 6’ 2”, he’s of average height, but is a quick twitch athlete with strong, sure hands who can jump and high-point the football in traffic. Playing for Aquinas has exposed Rosemy to some very stiff high school competition over the last few years. 247 Sports compares him to Riley Ridley. Rosemy was recruited by Cortez Hankton and James Coley and gave his verbal commitment back on June 20. All recruiting services list him as a high 4-Star prospect.

One of the recruits I am most excited about is defensive tackle Jalen Carter from Apoka, Florida (Apoka High). Macondawg called Carter a “Geno Atkins starter kit,” and I do believe this is about perfect. Carter is thick-chested and strong, at 6’ 4” and listed by 247 Sports at 300 lbs, and simply takes on blockers violently. This kid is an athlete, having played tight end earlier in his high school career and can windmill-tomahawk dunk a basketball (and, I hear, a Gator). Carter had 28 offers from around the country, including all the in-state school, Alabama and Auburn. Carter has been a Georgia commit since May 20th.

Want more defensive linemen? Well, here you go...

Warren Brinson, like Nolan Smith a Savannah native who transferred to IMG Academy, is another kid out of the Bradenton school who shunned all the Sunshine State schools for his opportunity in Athens. Brinson is 6’ 4”, 280 and has the frame to add some good weight. If you remember, he originally committed to Georgia, then re-opened his recruitment before re-committing on June 1, only a few weeks after visiting Florida - which left many in Gainesville feeling a bit stunned.

His primary recruiters are Tray Scott and Glenn Schumann. This 4-Star talent will be an early enrollee, which can only help him both academically and athletically. Georgia’s defensive line is already loaded, and with the addition of Jalen Carter, Warren Brinson and Nazir Stackhouse, the future is incredibly bright not only this unit, but the entire defense as a whole.

Go ‘Dawgs!!!
