#61 Chris Barnes
OL • 6-3/294 • Lee County (Leesburg, GA) • DOB: 8/11/97
DAWGTIME’S TAKE: Listed anywhere between 6-foot-3, 270 pounds and 6-foot-5, 294 pounds, the one knock on Barnes is his size. However, his father, a former football player at Albany State, stands at 6-foot-9 and weighs 345 pounds. Therefore, the idea exists that Barnes could very well have room to grow. Although perhaps small in stature for an offensive lineman, he is strong, athletic, and moves comfortably for a lineman, particularly on screen-passing plays. Barnes will probably play this season, likely seeing time as a backup center, maybe reserve guard.
#74 Ben Cleveland
OL • 6-6/345 • Stephens County (Toccoa, GA) • DOB: 8/25/98
DAWGTIME’S TAKE: Cleveland is a mountain of a man who is Georgia’s top prospect of the three offensive line signees. Although carrying a large frame, Cleveland has demonstrated remarkable quickness and acceleration on the field. However, his dominant play was against much smaller, second-tier defenders in high school. Cleveland can play either left or right tackle, and will be a quality reserve as a true freshman.
#35 Brian Herrien
RB • 6-0/205 • New Manchester (Manchester, GA) • DOB: 2/7/98
DAWGTIME’S TAKE: Waiting to make sure he had achieved the necessary grades and ACT score, Herrien did not commit to Georgia until May 17. The 19th-best running back prospect in the nation adds another able body to a talented, but fragile running back corps. Although he doesn’t have a great burst, Herrien does run with power and has the ability to break away from defenders once he reaches top gear.
