Clemson, UGA commits shine
Rivals.com Recruiting Analyst Barry Every scouted some of the top prospects in the state of Georgia - present and future - in a recent matchup between Augusta (Ga.) Westside and Louisville (Ga.) Jefferson County.

Expert's View of Jefferson County vs. Westside
A.J. Harmon, 6-4, 308, OG, Jefferson Co.
Class of 2008, Committed to Clemson
Assets: An emotional team leader who also happens to be a giant that can really move his feet.
Areas of improvement: Ideal playing weight should be about 15-20 pounds lighter, this would allow him to play both offensive guard and tackle at the next level.
Most Impressive play: First two plays of the game. Pulling right from his spot at right tackle, he locked on to his guy and drove him eight yards. The second play, he pulled left and pancaked the first Westside defender that he came into contact with.
Conclusion: Harmon has so much potential and enthusiasm for the game. He is ready to play offensive guard as a freshman. Reminds me of former Georgia lineman, and high school All-American, Max Jean-Gilles who is currently with the Eagles.
Chris Crenshaw, 6-2, 205, DE/LB, Jefferson Co.
Class of 2009
Assets: He can really run, and is excellent coming off the edge.
Areas of improvement: He most likely will be a linebacker at the next level. He will need to get stronger and learn how to move in space.
Most Impressive play: He continually put pressure on the Westside quarterback all game long.
Conclusion: Has a chance to be a Division I recruit if he gets stronger and puts on more muscle mass.
Barry Bostic, 5-10, 155, ATH, Jefferson Co.
Class of 2010
Assets: He is extremely quick and very elusive, having already eclipsed the 1,000-yard mark rushing and passing on the season.
Areas for improvement: Needs to get stronger and put on muscle mass because he only weighs around 155 pounds at this time.
Most Impressive play: Very early in the third quarter he called his own number and ran 45 yards up the middle, untouched for a touchdown, showing his speed and acceleration.
Conclusion: He projects as a return man and a slot receiver at the next level. If he works on getting stronger, I expect him to sign a Division I scholarship.
Sanders Commings, 6-1, 195, WR/S, Westside
Class of 2008, Committed to Georgia
Assets: Has great ball skills and will hit you like a ton of bricks.
Areas of improvement: Needs to completely heal from his minor leg fracture and get back to full speed.
Most Impressive play: The fact that he was basically playing on one leg and still was the best player on Westside by far. He accounted for 11 solo tackles, one assist, one TFL, and had four catches for 36 yards and a touchdown.
Conclusion: He really impressed me with his gutty performance. He has the potential to be a very good, if not great, safety at Georgia.
