Georgia State signs Dutchtown’s Long

Georgia State filled out its recruiting class in football for 2014 with the signing of Dutchtown High defensive lineman Nicholus Long.

Long, 6-6, 270 pounds, has the type of frame that coach Trent Miles loves because he has room to add a lot of weight.

The signing will boost a position group that needed depth. The team lost starters Theo Agnew and Terrance Woodard, who used up their eligibility, and the coaching staff wasn’t able to sign any replacements until Long.

From his highlights, Long appears to have an ability to pursue and shed blocks.
