Countdown to UGA-OSU: 2 Days (#2 Brandon Boykin)

#2 Brandon Boykin, CB
5-10, 180, Fayetteville GA (Fayette County HS), Soph.

After arriving in Athens as one of the top-rated recruits out of the state of Georgia, Boykin had a solid freshman season, playing in all 13 games on defense and earning some valuable experience that will serve him well this year. He's got terrific speed and athletic ability, and after an awesome spring has surged his way up the depth chart. He's going to see alot of action this year. Boykin's play is a big key to UGA's defensive success.

Depth Chart Analysis: Boykin has managed to work his way into a starting job at short corner opposite Prince Miller. As Miller has more experience, Boykin is probably going to get picked on a little bit this year, so it wouldn't shock me to see him lead the team in interceptions in 2009. It is also quite possible that his first assignment as a starter for UGA will be to cover Oklahoma State All-American Dez Bryant. No small task, but for a player like Boykin, getting thrown in the middle of the fire this early may not be a bad thing.

Other famous #2s in UGA history: P Mark Malkiewicz, CB Tim Wansley, CB Asher Allen

I agree he will probably lead the team in picks. Plus he seems to have that "it" factor as a playmaker. Similar to Tim Wansley.
