Countdown to UGA-GSU: 92 Days

#92 Neland Ball, DE
6-6, 232, Jackson GA (Jackson HS), Soph.
Ball chose the Dawgs after a process that came down to UGA and the Auburn Plainsmen, but he also sported offers from Georgia Tech, Kentucky, Ole Miss, Oklahoma State, South Carolina and Clemson. Rivals ranked him as a Top 20 DE in America in his senior season at Jackson High, and one of the Top 20 incoming players in Georgia. He's another nice blend of speed and height that UGA trots out on the edge. Not to mention that he can also perform a fairly decent Soulja Boy dance:

Depth Chart Analysis: Ball finds himself in a tight competition for playing time. He's probably 3rd or 4th on the current depth chart at DE, in the mix with Demarcus Dobbs, Michael Lemon and Justin Houston. Add in the talented incoming freshman class with Toby Jackson (assuming he gets his test score) and Cornelius Washington, add Ball faces even longer odds. Fall camp is going to be very important for a few of the guys I just mentioned, Ball included.
