‘State’s fastest man’ to attend UGA’s Dawg Night

The player who some scouts call “the state’s fastest man” will be at UGA’s “Dawg Night” prospect camp.

Jeremy McDuffie is a senior cornerback from Shiloh High School who has arguably been the state’s hottest prospect since obliterating the state championship track meet in May.

The 5-foot-11, 170-pound McDuffie almost single-handily delivered Shiloh the team state championship in the Georgia’s largest classification (AAAAAA).

He placed first in the 110 high hurdles, 300 intermediate hurdles and triple jump. His time in the 110 was 13.83 seconds, which was sixth-fastest in the nation for a high schooler this season.

The college football world took notice of the blazing times, with South Carolina, Duke, Iowa, Minnesota, Georgia Tech and Wisconsin almost immediately extending scholarship offers.

McDuffie has Florida and Duke as his leaders, with Tennessee also in the mix. UGA wants to evaluate McDuffie at camp on Friday.
