Four-star recruit Chamblee Charter High's Davin Bellamy, a defensive end who had previously committed to Florida State, officially signed with the University of Georgia on National Signing Day.
Chamblee had five recruits sign with college football programs on Feb. 6, National Signing Day. Wide Receiver Quincy Watford committed to University of Charleston, OLB Khari Rosier committed to Presbyterian College, FB/LB Dezmin Reed committed to Georgia Military College, Chamblee WR/TE Desmond Noird committed to Florida A&M and OG Kameren Mack committed to Presbyterian College.
Bellamy was the biggest fish, though, at 6'5" and 225 pounds, his athleticism enabled him to master the pass rush in his high school career. Scouts were salivating over the Chamblee product very early in his career and many expect that with a little work and strength training he will be a large factor in college.
RedAndBlack.com, the University of Geogria's football fan website said of the pass rusher, "Bellamy is a highly-talented defensive player who has a lot of potential. While his body doesn't outweigh the majority of defensive prospects, his athleticism does. Bellamy is the type of player who can positively affect a team's defense as soon as he finds a position that best fits him. Bellamy will have to become stronger and work on his technique, but as soon as he improves on those areas he will be ready to see the field."
Bellamy is considered a well-rounded athlete and he grew up playing football and basketball, so he is very flexible in terms of what positions he can play in college. Bellamy is currently listed as a defensive end, but he also has the ability to play outside linebacker if needed.
The Augusta Chronicle reported Monday that since reneging his commitment to Florida State, Georgia has become the leading school to get his services.
Securing the outside linebacker recruit from Chamblee High is good news for the Bulldogs as the Dawgs were previously in the running for several top-100 national prospects who are now expected to go elsewhere.
