Middle Georgia native Lovasea’ Carroll was once committed to South Carolina. He was even in Sanford Stadium that fateful afternoon when the Gamecocks stunned Georgia in 2019.
He still chose Georgia. The 4-star RB almost backed off that pledge, but still stayed commitment to Georgia in June of 2020.
What Terrence Edwards sees in Lovasea’ Carroll
DawgNation’s film room series has previously featured the evaluations of former All-American and 2002 second-round NFL draft pick Jon Stinchmob. The wave this week features the breakdowns of another all-time Georgia great in Terrence Edwards.
Edwards owns all the prime A1A beachfront real estate in the Georgia record books for a receiver. The former “Mr. Football” out of Washington County is the career record holder in catches (204), yards (3,093) and touchdowns (30) from 1999-2002.
He’s not just the longevity ‘Dawg either. Edwards also holds the school records for most receiving yards and touchdowns (11) in a single season. It also garners him the distinction of being the only 1,000-yard receiver in Bulldog history with his 1,004-yard effort in 2002.
The most productive WR in Georgia football history broke down what he sees in the nation’s No. 6 RB prospect in the 2021 cycle (247Sports Composite) for DawgNation.
The class notes from “TE” are telling.
“The first thing I’ve got is speed,” Edwards said. “Man, that’s the first thing that pops off about this guy is how fast he is. And I’ve got to give him a shout-out right here. Because my Middle Georgia players I just have an affinity for. His hometown in Warrenton is 25 to 30 minutes away from my hometown in Sandersville, Georgia. He’s another one of those Middle Georgia kids that come from a small school.”
Edward described him as a “one-cut guy” in his breakdown.
“He puts his foot in the ground and gets to top speed very well,” Edwards said of Carroll.
Check out the video embedded above for a few of his takes on the following:
- Which former Bulldog does Carroll remind him of?
- Is he a make-you-miss type RB? Why is that?
- When should DawgNation expect to see him on the field?
- What does Edwards still need to see more of from Carroll?
- How does he fit into the loaded “RBU” depth chart at Georgia?
- What unique position can he see “LC” making the quickest contribution early in Athens?
