Since 1995 - Insightful commentary on the Georgia Bulldogs

Post Who’s the better 17-year-old QB?

Monday July 21, 2008

Aaron Murray might not see game action at Sanford Stadium until 2010, but recruitniks are buzzing today about an ESPN report from the past weekend’s Nike 7-on-7 event. Though neither has played his senior season in high school yet, the event offered an opportunity to compare Georgia commitment Aaron Murray with Southern Cal pledge Matt Barkley. Though both Rivals.com and Scout.com rate Barkley as the top overall prospect in the nation, Murray showed out just as well.

To sum up the scout on Murray: shorter than you’d like, but an “explosive” release with great speed and footwork. Throws hard, takes risks (sometimes too many risks). Needs work on his mechanics.

Bonus: Georgia’s other quarterback commitment, Zach Mettenberger, gets a nod for his arm strength.
