Umm, this is scary.  This kid will be in Athens this weekend, per 247.

David Mbadinga - The other starting 2023 RB from Kell that is creating a buzz. He is close to a 1,000 yards rushing starting as a 14 year old in 5A.

Great kid and player from what I hear.  Also heard he needs to put on some weight and that he’s getting banged up pretty bad because Kell is running him into the ground.

Pulled from a Sentell article, regarding Carson Beck:

It is important to cite all of the numbers for the Mandarin High (Jacksonville, Fla.) senior as we step into this discussion. Carson Beck posted the following totals (via Maxpreps.com) last fall during his first year as a full-time starting QB in high school football:

  • 209 completions across 356 attempts (59% completion percentage)
  • 39 TDs/8 INTs (TD: INT ratio of 4.9/1)
  • 3,546 yards (253 yards per game)
  • Led a 6-4 team to an 11-4 finish and a state title in Florida’s largest classification
  • Was a rare junior who earned Florida’s “Mr. Football” honor for 2018

Now compare that to his 2019 totals:

  • 75 completions across 165 attempts (45% completion percentage)
  • 9 TDs/8 INTs (TD: INT ratio of 1.1/1)
  • 1,044 yards (149 yards per game)
  • His Mustangs have the same 4-3 record today as they did after seven games in 2018

With that, let’s add a sprinkle of numbers for some necessary context, too.

  • 0: The number of phone calls the Georgia staff has made to Mandarin High wondering what is up with their Elite 11 QB commit.
  • 1: The number of seniors in the two-deep for Beck at receiver this fall. The lone senior does not start.
  • 2: Current players on the Mandarin offense (including Beck) with a scholarship offer
  • 1.5: That’s how many offensive starters are back (including Beck) from last year’s state title team. The other returning starter is now a part-time starter.
  • 2: The number of scholarship receivers (Liberty and FIU) Beck had in 2018
  • Mandarin’s losses have been to teams with a combined 18-3 record, including two perfect seasons
  • Beck was 33-for-81 (41 percent) for 388 yards with 3 TDs and 4 INTs in those starts

Beck has not turned the ball over in his last 14 quarters. 

“The last three-and-a-half games he’s played very well,” Mandarin High coach Bobby Ramsay told DawgNation. “If the completion percentage hasn’t looked as sexy as people would like it since then, it is probably because there have been drops. It hasn’t been a case of ‘why did you throw that ball there’ with Carson.”

Carson Beck: A different player in 2019?

Denny Thompson, his quarterback trainer, has an impressive reputation in North Florida. He watches him every week.

He feels that Beck is five times the quarterback he was at this time a year ago.

“This is exactly what he needs,” Thompson told DawgNation. “He’s having to do so much just to keep that team upright because of how young they are. It sucks for him but he will definitely pick up a lot of leadership skills out of it.”

There have been some good and not-so-good plays for Beck in 2019. DawgNation tries to catch the live streams or recaps of all his games in 2019.

The Mandarin offense doesn’t have the downfield threat that it did a year ago. Kris Mitchell, who’s now at FIU, was that deep threat. Liberty freshman Demario Douglas caught four of Beck’s five touchdown passes in the 8A state title game.

The Mustangs have missed those guys. (Yes, that phrasing eerily sounds like the Georgia offense at this current stretch of the season.)

There have been some games where his receivers can just not get separation. There were some reps earlier this year where he made some ill-advised throws into tight windows or under pressure.

But he’s making something out of it. He looks like a more athletic QB this fall. Capable of getting more than 4-5 yards on an “RPO” play when it is there.

“He’s a much more athletic quarterback this year with his feet,” Ramsay said. “There’s something there with his feet that I hope the next level takes advantage of more so than we have. He really does a good job of extending plays and making something happen when it’s not there especially inside the 20 when the windows get really tight to throw the football.”

It might be the constant pressure. Or it might be the yoga he does all the time now. While watching some of his films, it doesn’t strike so much Jake Fromm anymore. More like Joe Burrow.

“I’d say that Joe Burrow is a fair comparison,” Ramsay said.

We know Gibbs will commit and shut it down if he gets that UGA offer any time soon. Not necessarily because he is a huge UGA fan but because staying close to home is important to him. It’s why he committed to Tech to begin with and why any school that’s more than a few hours drive is probably not in serious consideration. 

I have gone back to watch both Gibbs and Evans film multiple times recently and I don’t know how anyone can watch both and come away feeling Evans is clearly the better player. Relative to Gibbs ranking, I would even argue that Evans is overrated, because Gibbs film looks just as good or even better at times. Evans film is not in the same zip code as Zamir White or John Emery anyway imo.

I just hope we don’t screw this up taking it for granted as a sure thing and then Evans leaves us at the altar. Daijun Edwards is a fine player but he is not on Gibbs or Evans level of talent.

Yep and even if we were to get Evans, is he going to be a locker room distraction?  Take Gibbs and move on to getting a wr that can create separation.

These recruits care much less about the outcome of the game than you would imagine.

My bad, I forgot no Dawgs are in the NFL that played under this staff.

There arent many that were fully developed by this staff. A good many were already in the junio or senior years. And how many of those nfl guys are magically better in the nfl than college?
