Ben Cleveland is quite a hunter. Give “Big Country” a rifle and enough ammo and send him off into the woods and he’ll never go hungry.
The UGA OL commit will do a different kind of hunting for some big game over the next five months. He’ll do his very best hoping to add three very important names to the 2016 signing class in Athens.
Which elite prospects does he have in mind? Well, the names he rolled off Friday night after his Stephens County squad fell 34-30 to Elbert County only total up about 14 stars. You can see who he thinks UGA must sign in the video interview above.
He’s also already mastered the art of the post-game interview video bomb. Check it out for yourself in real time and in slow-motion.
The 6-foot-7, 320-pounder already has the physical skills to blow up the NFL combine in a few years. He’s nimble enough to play guard but also has the size and footwork to lock down a tackle spot as a cornerstone of any offense.
Cleveland can clock a sub-5.0 second time in the 40-yard dash and bench press about 450 pounds.
