Chaz Chambliss is an outside linebacker who plays at Carrollton High School. The 6-foot-2, 240-pound senior is rated as a four-star prospect by 247 Sports and has made a verbal commitment to play at the University of Georgia, choosing the Bulldogs over the likes of Alabama and Clemson.

Chambliss is a three-year starter and was named to the all-state team as a junior. He is the defensive leader on a Carrollton team expected to compete for the Class 6A championship.

GPB Sports recently spoke to Chambliss and got his take on these five questions:

How can you get better this year?

“I’m going to one of the team leaders this year. We lost a lot of good senior leadership and now it’s my turn to step in there.”

What was your recruiting process like?

“It was up and down. It gave me opportunities that I didn’t have before and I loved every minute of it. I’m happy with my decision (to commit to Georgia). Now I’m going to work my butt off to get ready.”

How did you handle the downtime from the COVID-19 crisis?

“It wasn’t easy. We got together over the summer with linebackers and we were able to work out. It was not good that the whole team couldn’t be together. We just have to use the time we have to be the best we can be.”

What are your goals for the season?

“I want to be the best teammate I can be, I want to be the best defensive player in the state and I’d love to win a state championship.”

What’s on your personal bucket list?

“Anything hunting or fishing, maybe get a nice-sized turkey. We like to go hunting with our family in Mississippi.”
