There’s big news brewing about this year’s Dawg Day football camp.
Jeremy McDuffie, a senior cornerback from Shiloh High School, has been tabbed by scouts as the ‘state’s fastest man’ since putting on an incredible performance at Georgia’s state championship track meet in May.
And now McDuffie is going to be the object of UGA’s attention when he attends the annual Dawg Day (which we’ve all known as Dawg Night up until this year) recruiting prospect camp, according to Michael Carvell of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
Dawg Day/Night (ugh, this is going to take some getting used to) has become a huge recruiting event at Georgia, and having McDuffie join the party could end up becoming a big get for the program.
From Carvell’s report:
The 5-foot-11, 170-pound McDuffie almost single-handily delivered Shiloh the team state championship in the Georgia’s largest classification (AAAAAA).
He placed first in the 110 high hurdles, 300 intermediate hurdles and triple jump. His time in the 110 was 13.83 seconds, which was sixth-fastest in the nation for a high schooler this season.
The college football world took notice of the blazing times, with South Carolina, Duke, Iowa, Minnesota, Georgia Tech and Wisconsin almost immediately extending scholarship offers.
Georgia would like to jump up to the top of McDuffie’s list, which right now has Florida, Duke and Tennessee as his leaders. Mark Richt‘s success rate of keeping local talent in-state has been improving, and this would be a nice prospect to keep from jumping state lines.
Dawg Day Camp is on July 18, and has become one of the two summer camps at UGA where a lot of prospects are reeled in, and even discovered by the coaching staff.
