ESPN 300 prospect Davin Bellamy (Chamblee, Ga./Chamblee) is the classic hybrid outside linebacker for a 3-4 defense. Georgia wasn’t the first school to offer or to get a visit, but once Bulldogs defensive coordinator Todd Grantham got Bellamy on campus, Bellamy had a close look at not only how the evaluation process for Georgia works, but also why Grantham believes his future would be brightest playing between the hedges. Grantham’s hard work Thursday has Georgia at the front of the pack to land one of the Peach State’s top targets.

“Georgia had some catching up to do since they offered me late, but after today Georgia is definitely in the top because the system fits me perfectly -- too perfectly,” Bellamy said. “The location of it, the SEC being big-time football, the system fits me and I can play early there. UGA really impressed me today. I know sometimes that they recruit different players for different roles at outside linebacker, but after seeing the film with Coach Grantham, I know I can do everything for them.”

Grantham worked his magic on Bellamy early during the visit, going through a detailed breakdown of the four-star defender's game and Georgia’s needs at outside linebacker.
