Lovasea Carroll, Defensive back (No.12):
Classify: First-year student
Weight: 195 pounds
Hometown: Warrenton, Georgia
High school: IMG Academy
Georgia Bulldogs defensive back Lovasea Carroll switched roles during his freshman year on campus with Georgia. Carroll enrolled early at Georgia after being a much-touted four-star rookie at powerhouse IMG Academy.
Carroll will have a good mentor to help him with any difficulties he will encounter with his change of position. Clemson’s incoming transfer Derion Kendrick is a former five-star rookie who started his college football career as a wide receiver. Kendrick seamlessly transitioned to second-year cornerback at Clemson and is a top prospect for the 2022 NFL Draft.
Georgia started Ameer Speed and Jalen Kimber in the spring game, but high school will be very different to open the season.
Kirby Smart brought additional competition to the defensive back, including the transfer of Clemson Derion Kendrick, the transfer of Alabama Brandon Turnage and the transfer of West Virgnia Tykee Smith. Former five-star rookie Kelee Ringo is also competing for playing time.
Georgia is no longer so desperate at the defensive back position. The Bulldogs could play Carroll in the future. It will be a scenario to watch Carroll’s career
