Countdown to UGA-OSU: 93 Days(#93 Brandon Wheeling)

#93 Brandon Wheeling, DT
6-3, 277, Dallas GA (Paulding Co HS) Sr.

Okay, lets see... who is this guy??

Well, he transferred to UGA from West Georgia(also spent some time at GSU??) in 08. He played for West Georgia in 06 and 07 after a RS Fr. year in 05. I really can't find any stats from his time at West Georgia so I'm going to move on to his high school stats. Brandon made All-Region(7AAAA) as a Sr. captain at Paulding County High school. He recorded 48 tackles, 3 sacks and 3 fumble recoveries. He was voted Most Valuable Lineman his Junior yr. Brandon seems to be a hard worker and has even had some of the coaches talk about him to the media. He recorded 1 sack in the G-Day game and had a few more in scrimmages throughout the spring. CRG seems to think he will provide extra depth at the DT position (Garner mention his name before a couple other DT's on the team) and G. Atkins has some good things to say about Brandon as well........READ HERE.

Depth Chart Analysis: Brandon will have to really impress to get in any kind of steady rotation. With J. Owens, G. Atkins, K. Weston and D. Tyson getting the bulk of the snaps, he will be mixed in with a group fighting for the leftovers. Maybe this guy surprises us and really contributes. Anyway, I look forward to seeing what hes got and at the least learning more about him.
