The Georgia Bulldogs had one of the best recruiting classes in the nation in 2015. One of the reasons why it was so good is because of five-star athlete Terry Godwin. Godwin is an electrifying receiver, who should see a lot of action this upcoming season.
But that may not happen if he chooses to play baseball. According to Michael Carvell of the Atlanta Journal Constitution, Godwin is working out for the Atlanta Braves on May 28, a couple of weeks before the MLB draft.
Godwin is a solid baseball player, but not great. For Callaway High School, he hit .305, 2 HR and 18 RBI. He is being scouted as a third baseman, but he does have a fastball in the low 90s, which is extremely impressive for a kid his age.
So, should the Bulldogs worry about losing Godwin to the MLB draft?
“I don’t think so,” Callaway HS baseball coach Dusty Hubbard told the AJC. “I think, no matter what, he is going to be at Georgia this fall. Let’s say he was to get drafted – and I don’t want to think for him, and I don’t want to speak for him … but I don’t know what kind of money we’re talking about. I have been given no indication by scouts about that with Terry. In the past, they’ll tell me with a player that ‘We’re looking at rounds 10 to 15 and ‘X’ amount of money.’ The scouts haven’t given me any indication on that, or if for sure that they’re going to draft him.
That’s great news for Dawgs fans because this kid is going to be a playmaker in the SEC. Just check out his highlight reel in the video above.
