Expect Darnell Washington to take his recruiting process and his final decision up to the Under Armour All-American Game. He will take his UGA official for the Notre Dame game this fall. (Jeff Sentell/DawgNation)
Theo Johnson is a rare athlete. He has posted that he has a 10-foot broad jump and a 43-inch vertical leap. (Jeff Sentell/DawgNation)
The Noah Sewell section
Noah Sewell posted a 4.75 laser in the 40-yard dash at 266 pounds. (Jeff Sentell/DawgNation)
Sewell has rare short space quickness for an ILB. He was timed in the pro agility shuttle drill at 4.13 seconds. That is the 99th percentile for all athletes. Especially the skill RBs and WRs. (Jeff Sentell/DawgNation)
Noah Sewell plays and camps with a high level of emotion and intensity. (Jeff Sentell/DawgNation)
Here’s pretty much the reaction when anyone sees Sewell fly around on the field at close to 270 pounds. (Jeff Sentell/DawgNation)
Noah Sewell had a brilliant day in the “Cat-and-Mouse” drill during the showcase portion of the Opening on Monday. (Jeff Sentell/DawgNation)
