Moultrie (Ga.) Colquitt County head coach Rush Propst has five Alabama state titles and two Georgia state titles to date, made a name for himself nationally after having his teams featured on MTV's 'Two-A-Days,' and has sent over 50 players to FBS programs over the years.
On vsporto's SEC Recruiting Buzz, Propst gave his take on Georgia after watching them in spring practice and the G-Day scrimmage.
"I think they are better defensively," Propst said. "They should be really good on defense. That should be their strong point - that old JunkYard Dawg, play hard defense. Limit scoring opportunities. I think they are going to be sporty on defense."
Propst feels the offense still has a few question marks.
"Outside speed at receiver," Propst said. "Guys that can go beat you deep and get their hands on the ball and beat you with one play. I think their tight ends are really good. Obviously, Chubb - can he hold up? Michel - who is the third back? You have to have three - can it be Holyfield, can it be whoever?"
One of the ongoing discussions is whether Jacob Eason will take the next step in year two.
"To me, this is just me - watching G-Day, sitting back, I know it is a simplistic deal. But I really Jake Fromm. I really do, and I think he has the intangibles," Propst said. "Jacob Eason is a good player, but at the end of the day, he was 8-for-23 in that ball game. Maybe that is the way they scripted it.
"I really like Fromm. I have seen him in action. Kids relate to him, he is a great leader, he is going to complete streaks of balls where he completes eight or nine in a row. He has a lot there that I like. In my offense, and what I like to do, Fromm would be my guy."
Propst feels there should be a true quarterback competition this fall.
"Eason has a lot to like - he's got the big arm, strong body, can throw it a mile," Propst said. "There are just some things there. Who do I think needs to go? I think you open it up the first two weeks of fall and see what happens. Don't count Fromm out. If Eason can't get it done and Fromm can get it done. Maybe Eason does."
At the end of the day, Propst feels Georgia will need to find ways to manufacture points this season.
"I think, offensively, Jim is going to have to create some opportunities to score based on they have some deficiencies on offense that they don't have on defense," Propst said.
On the full show, Propst also gave his predictions for who will play in the SEC Championship.
"I gotta go Alabama, but I think Auburn and LSU have closed the door," Propst said. "I have a feeling Georgia is going to have a good year if they can get offensive play. If they can get offensive play, they have a chance."
