Malaki Starks, Jefferson

Malaki Starks is one of the top prospects in the state and has decided to stay home and play for the Georgia Bulldogs. The 6-foot-1, 200-pound senior is the No. 3 linebacker in the nation and No. 2 overall player in the state, according to the 247Sports Composite.

Starks committed to the Dawgs over heavyweights Alabama and Clemson. The five-star athlete said he felt most at home in Athens, considering it’s only a 30-minute drive from his hometown of Jefferson. Now that’s he’s made his decision, Starks must settle on a position to play at the next level. He currently stars as quarterback and on defense for the Dragons.
