Two months ago Georgia picked up one of the most productive wide receivers in the Peach State when Blake Tibbs (Lithonia, Ga./Martin Luther King) committed to the Bulldogs. The 6-foot-1, 175-pound wideout had 60 catches for 1,053 yards and eight touchdowns in 12 games last year, and Tibbs has a great shot at eclipsing all three stat categories in the Lions' 12th game this week. So far he has 57 catches for 955 yards and 14 touchdowns, as well as a 76 yard touchdown run and seven kickoff returns for 301 yards and two touchdowns. He turned in an impressive performance at the Mark Richt 7-on-7 camp in June, including several plays in the championship versus a Creekside secondary with FBS prospects. Now Tibbs plans on making plays in Athens, and Martin Luther King assistant football coach Clifford Browning feels the Bulldogs will be pleased with what they get from their lone wide receiver commitment.

"Tibbs is fast, with sure hands, great route running ability, and he knows how to maintain his speed while running those routes, even during his breaks," Browning said. "He has faced double-teams for two years now, and still puts up 100 yards or more per game. He is a leader who has a passion for the game, is the best kick returner in Georgia, and a playmaker we like to call Blake 'Ocho' Tibbs."

And Tibbs is not the only standout Georgia hopes to sign out of the Lithonia area high school this year. Defensive end Kenderius Whitehead is a dominant pass-rusher who has racked up 93 tackles and 15 sacks for the Lions so far this season, and like Tibbs the 6-4, 220-pound four-star prospect has faced double-teams all along. Whitehead has Georgia high on his board, and is also considering Clemson and North Carolina. He also gets rave reviews from his coaching staff, with Browning and head coach Mike Carson both crediting him for being a relentless terror off the edge.
