    Fun player comparison.
    I'm gonna watch how these 2 stack up against each other in the coming years.

    Lorenzo Carter
    Sr Stats per Maxpreps: http://www.maxpreps.com/athlete/lorenzo-carter/QdovTPTtEeKZ5AAmVebBJg/gendersport/football-stats.htm

    Tackles
    88 Solo 44 Asst Total = 132
    Sacks 6 YLD 41 Hur 10 (AJC list him having 18 sacks)

    Others
    PD 5 Fum Rec 3 FR Yrds 7

    Parade Highschool All American
    First-team all-state player for the Class AAAAAA championship team
    6A Defensive Player of the Year
    Carter, 6-foot-5, 235 pounds

    Antonio Simmons
    http://www.maxpreps.com/athlete/ant...EeOZ5AAmVebBJg/gendersport/football-stats.htm

    Totals
    33 Tackls 17 Solo Total = 50 (19 Tackles for loss)
    Sacks 29 YDL 150 Hurs 26
    1 blk punt

    Parade Highschool All American Honorable Mention
    First Team All- State Florida
    2A Defensive Player of the Year
    Simmons, 6-foot-4, 215 pounds

    Simmons played one year DE and Carter played 2.

    One rated 5* the other 3*.
    Carter played the game to the end
    Simmons shut his recruitment down when he committed to GT.
    Personally I don't really understand why Simmons flew so low under the radar. I know he played in a lower class but that class had good players in it. It'a gonna be fun to watch and for me compare both their development.

    I'm intrigued by him as well, Atl. He's got great first step, the only question is whether he'll be able keep it once he gains another 25-30 LBs. He'll defnitely get stronger. Great foundation to build on, but probably won't be a factor for another year or two.

    Carter already has 20 pounds on him.

    One can play the run, guess which one. Simmons will be a good situational player and may develop into more.

    Well one of them obviously can pass rush. I like that quality more in a DE.

    Carter reminds me more of Kevin Robbins.

    Lol.....I was lurking the UGA site the other day and there was a thread comparing Carter to Clowney.

    Not even in the same breath IMO. Clowneys film was downright scary.

    How much do think he weighs? Our own website listed him at 6-3, 190 --the size of a SAFETY.He will NOT be playing DE at about 200 lbs.So he really is a light LB

    My prediction is that Simmons doesn't get redshirted. Really looking forward to Whithead, Robbins and Simmons at the ends. I have high expectations for them.

    Carter is more filled out and has more moves for rushing the passer. SImmons has lots of potential though.

    Honestly, it wouldn't surprise me if Simmons was better than Carter by the time they are Juniors.

    However, Carter is a really good player but a little overrated in my eyes.

    Carter is good, but he's no Clowney. He has great measurables but I just dont see that nastiness. He will be a solid player, Simmons on the other hand reminds me alot of Attachou. If they were to get the same amount of PT I would think Simmons would end up with more sacks
