TEAM GEORGIA WEEK 3 RECAP
TEAM GEORGIA WEEKEND THREE RECAP
The third weekend of Team Georgia camps wrapped up and Team Georgia got a big boost at every grade level this weekend with the camps at August and East Atlanta.
Arguably the two best performances from the weekend were both from the 8th grade team with Collin Davis at the East Atlanta camp and Jaris Sinkfield in Augusta.
Davis, simply put is a man in the trenches. He has the ideal build to be a big-time defensive tackle with a low center of gravity on a 6-1 and 285lbs frame. He is almost impossible to block and seemed to have won every one-on-one battle during the camp. Look for him to be another dominant force along the DL.
Sinkfield is a lockdown corner with very fluid hips, quickness and change of direction. He anticipates routes well leading to big plays.
The 6th grade group found some kids that could be key pieces to filling out the Team Georgia roster. Gavin Kinchen was MVP of the East Atlanta camp. He was a very smooth receiver that catches effortlessly with his hands and gets in and out of his breaks quickly. He was equally effective on the defensive side of the ball. QB Prince Aminu had a good camp displaying a strong arm and ability to make throws to every part of the field. Jeremiah Magee and Kweli Fielder had some very good battles in the offensive and defensive line groups, both showing lots of potential. Duintaes Float in Augusta looked solid and like a competitor that would be a good addition to the team.

The Team Georgia 7th grade team is shaping up to look like the strongest Georgia team and this weekend further solidified that notion. The 7th grade groups this weekend were deep and talented. QB JR Harris at the Augusta camp looked like a well-polished QB that made very few mistakes and made lots of good throws. Kalani Robertson and Waylon Wooten put on a show at the East Atlanta camp. Robertson at 5-10 and 180lbs runs very well at LB. He is aggressive and athletic enough to play in coverage while being big enough to stuff the run.
Waylon Wooten is simply an elite lineman. Capable of dominating on either side of the ball, but we think he just looked hard to beat on the offensive line. Noah Merriweather turned in one of our best ever times in the 40 as a 7th grader. He is an explosive RB that could take turn any run into a touchdown in the blink of an eye. We could fill this article speaking on the 7th graders from Antonio Taylor, to Denim Welch and Justin Dulcio-Weeks. This weekend showed a lot of players that can expect to have their name called when Team Georgia is announced at the end of the month.

The 8th graders were also a very deep group led by Davis and Sinkfield. Kamden Jennings was a very impressive corner at the East Atlanta camp. Long and rangy corner with excellent cover skills. Jay Varner and Earnest Rankins were very good linemen that both showed good talent and lots of potential. They could make for a good addition for a very strong offensive line.
Devin Carter in Augusta and Djimon McClendon both were probably the top performing receivers at the Augusta and East Atlanta camp respectively. Ironically, both have Florida State ties with former FSG coach and Florida State former star running back Dexter Carter being the father of Devin and Djimon’s brother is a former 3-time FSG participant and current defensive end at Florida State.
There were lots of others with very good camps from the 8th grade groups this weekend. We look forward to seeing many of them in June.
