The latest episode of the Recruitin’ Down South podcast features SDS’ own Corey Long (on Twitter @CoreyLong). Corey was in Orlando for the Under Armour All-American game and we wanted to discuss his thoughts on several of the prospects either headed to the SEC or currently being recruited by SEC programs.
The surprise of the event was MVP RB Maurice Washington, he broke several records in the game and earned himself the attention of a few SEC programs coming out of the event. We also discussed Emory Jones and why he could start in Gainesville next season. Another interesting prospect from the game was Auburn QB signee Joey Gatewood. How does he fit in at Auburn and is his future at another position?
One of the top uncommitted prospects to watch from the event was Jacob Copeland. What could he bring to the college game with Alabama, Florida and Tennessee all in pursuit? Quay Walker may be committed to Alabama but it appears he’s more likely to sign with Tennessee or Georgia. Fellow Alabama signee Jordan Davis and Georgia signee Brenton Cox stood out during the game to Long. He shares some thoughts on each.
We close out discussing two U.S. Army All Americans in American Heritage teammates Patrick Surtain Jr. and Tyson Campbell. Long has incredible things to say about each uncommitted prospect. He also touched on what it says about Georgia should Kirby Smart and company reach into South Florida and steal Campbell away from Miami.
