The quarterback position is one that has seen great debate among Georgia fans this season. Brock Vandagriff putting pen to paper and joining Georgia in the fall will only add to that debate. Vandagriff is the 14th overall player in the 2021 class, as well as the second-highest-rated dual-threat quarterback, according to 247Sports’ Composite Rankings. Vandagriff is also the 21st highest-rated player that Georgia has landed since 2000 and the third-best dual-threat quarterback in that time frame. He trails just Justin Fields and DJ Shockley.
Brock Vandagriff Signs with Georgia
Vandagriff has all the talent to stir up the quarterback room from day one. The quarterback has a great arm in short and medium-range throws. He can place it with great accuracy, while still delivering with velocity. Deep balls are a little more of a question mark, but the talent appears to be there. One of Vandagriff’s strengths is his mobility. He can get out of the pocket and make a play, as well as being able to execute on designed runs. Vandagriff also does a good job with off-balance and flat-footed throws. He is also a three-sport athlete, who competes on the basketball and track teams. Overall, he is a great addition to any quarterback group, especially one that has been under such scrutiny.
The quarterback’s season is still taking place, but currently, his team holds an 11-1 record. The Prince Avenue Christian Wolverines face Wesleyan this weekend in the Georgia High School Association’s A-Private Final Four. In addition to team success, Vandagriff has racked up over 3600 passing yards, a 70% completion percentage, 41 passing touchdowns, and just four interceptions. Add that to almost 400 rushing yards and 15 rushing touchdowns, and it is easy to see why the Wolverines have such a good record this season. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution named Vandagriff to their Super Eleven. Vandagriff also made it into the Army All-American Game and into the finals of the Elite 11 quarterback competition.
Overall, the Athens native is a huge addition to his hometown Bulldogs. The level of competition will vastly increase from Prince Avenue Christian to the SEC, but Vandagriff possesses all of the skills needed to capitalize on the opportunity and be a star for the Bulldogs.
