Jalen Carter shows once again that he is not of this planet
Georgia defensive tackle Jalen Carter showed early on his career that he was a freakish athlete when he lined up in a goal line package last season and hauled in a touchdown pass.
Georgia fans got a small taste of what a weapon he could be on both sides of the ball during the 2020 season, and through the first seven games of this season, they’re realizing he’s not just freakish, he may just be superhuman, not of this planet.
Against Arkansas, offensive coordinator Todd Monken dialed up another creative goal line package involving Carter, except this team, he used him is a fullback to lead block for running back Kendall Milton.
In an exhibition of his otherwordliness, Carter transformed from his earthly form as No. 88 for the Georgia Bulldogs, into Optimus Carter, a road-grader that pancake blocks everyone in his path.
In clearing a path for Milton’s first career touchdown, Carter blocked three Hogs simultaneously, folding them all up like a cheap beach chair and allowing Milton to walk in for six untouched.
On Saturday against Kentucky, Optimus Carter was on full display. He tallied six tackles and registered 2.5 tackles-for-loss, including a sack.
The most memorable play of his day came when executed a swim move that ought to make Georgia head swim and dive coach Jack Bauerle offer him a scholarship, causing Kentucky’s guard to completely whiff, en route to blowing up the Wildcats’ entire play for a tackle for loss.
Boasting a defensive line consisting of Heisman hopeful Jordan Davis, superfreak Devonte Wyatt, and Transformer Jalen Carter is just an embarrassment of riches.
