Blaske and Stackhouse both signed with Georgia in the 2020 recruiting class. Blaske, who also won the class 5A state wresting championship in Georgia, recently posted on his social media account an ability to hoop it up a little bit on the basketball court.
The 3-star offensive lineman from South Effingham took a few steps and thundered home an impressive driveway dunk recently on his Twitter account.
The 6-foot-5, 300-pound Blaske was a very late addition to Georgia’s offensive line class in the days leading up to the early signing period in December. Blaske went from a N.C. State commitment to a Georgia offer to a 2020 signee after a new evaluation from first-year offensive line coach Matt Luke.
Check out what he did getting above the rim.

Blaske’s feat was impressive. Stackhouse had an even better turn competing for his high school track team.
Nazir Stackhouse runs the 100 for Columbia High School
Stackhouse was named to the Opening finals last July out in Texas. He was actually the founding member of the 2020 recruiting class way back on the day the Bulldogs smashed through Auburn to win the SEC championship back in December of 2017.
The 4-star DL remained a member of the Georgia class for the duration of his recruitment. The 6-foot-4, 305-pounder also signed with Georgia during the early period.
He rated as a 4-star DT and the nation’s No. 27 prospect at his position on the final 247Sports Composite ratings. That slotted him as the nation’s No. 248 overfill recruit for 2020 on that scale.
But nobody really expected to see this out of him in the early stages of track season for Columbia High School.
Stackhouse was running the 100 meters. And from the looks of it down below, he was looking quite nimble at that.

Stackhouse even retweeted the clip with a response of his own. That second-place finish is certainly an impressive showing for a future DT in the rugged Southeastern Conference.

Blaske rated as the nation’s No. 41 OT and the No. 527 overall recruit for 2020. That dunk up above and his work on the South Effingham track team this spring qualifies him as a strong overall athlete, including three different sports at the varsity level.
That’s every big as impressive as a big ol’ DT finishing second in the 100 meters at a high school track meet.
