Default Re: 2016 - Ben Cleveland

This may be off topic but i live across the line from Toccoa, GA. The area i live in was named for a Revolutionary war hero Benjamin CLeveland( who rests on his plantation about a mile from me) Wonder if they are related? A Gamecock and relative of a revolutionary war hero.....That kid would be the bomb. I'll have to go see this kid play. Reason i wonder is that Cleveland was called "ol round about" He was a huge man and was rough as heart pine..... I could see some OL offspring down the line.

Early on, he's a UGA lean. He grew up a big (literally and figuratively) UGA fan.

While a lot of kids grow up "following" UGA, this kid was actually a fan.

I'm with DawginCola...UGA is the team to beat with this guy.

Living in Hartwell, I'll probably get a chance to see him if they play Hart County.

Interview via 247

Quote:
Class of 2016 prospect Ben Cleveland is already considered one of the top offensive line prospects in the country, and the 6-7, 317-pounder showed why Saturday. He clocked a very impressive 5.22 40-yard dash and 4.87 shuttle, and had a 25.8-inch vertical leap and 41.5-foot power ball throw for a score of 99.78. He has offers from Georgia, Clemson, Florida, South Carolina and Texas with Alabama expected in the near future. He made an unofficial visit to Clemson two weeks ago.

The camp setting is not going to give an accurate picture of what Cleveland brings to the table, although at 6-7, 314 pounds, the sophomore easily stands out among the linemen. His feet are a work in progress and he needs to do a better job using his powerful base to anchor, but the upside for Cleveland is through the roof. He is getting better camp by camp. Elite potential.

*Vitals: 6-foot-6.5, 314 pounds
Eye-popping number: Even at 314 pounds and nearly 6-7, Cleveland ran a 5.11 laser-timed 40 at the Atlanta Nike Camp and had one of the nation’s best SPARQ score among offensive linemen.
Crystal Ball: Overwhelmingly, Cleveland is favored to land at Georgia with 100% of experts predicting that the Bulldogs keep him in state.
Timeline events of note: Currently the home-state Bulldogs have been where Cleveland has visited the most but his most recent offer and visit from Auburn has the Tigers in the hunt.
Bottom line: The definition of a physical specimen, Cleveland is developed physically beyond where most high school seniors ever hope to be, much less high school sophomores. The challenge for Cleveland will be adding the polish that he needs without getting too big and too stiff.

With the talent we are bringing in on the defensive line I except some epic battles vs Cleveland in the coming years.
