Jenkins Co. duo "coming in to win"

Jonathan Taylor and James DeLoach graduate tomorrow and will be in Athens on June 4th ready to join Georgia's defensive line.
“It’s going to be kind of hard, kind of brutal,” Taylor said. “I’m going to get in a flow and start rolling with it and get ready to do what it takes to get on the field.”
He said Georgia said he could play nose guard or defensive end.
Taylor prefers to play end.
“I’ve got speed and quickness,” he said.
The 6-foot-5, 290-pound Taylor will join an experienced defensive line.
“If I go in and hit it right and stay in shape, I can play this year as a freshman,” said Taylor, rated as a top 76 overall prospect by, and
Taylor and DeLoach are good friends who committed together in June 2011. They will be roommates at Georgia.
They work together on weight training in the final period of their school day.
“We’ll be in there pushing each other,” the 6-3, 255-pound DeLoach said.
DeLoach, who won the Class A discus with a throw of 156-5 last week in Jefferson, says he “loves rushing the passer, but I’ll get that running back, too, when he comes through.”
DeLoach said a family member has worked with him on speed training to get ready for college.
“We’ve got a bunch of good recruits coming in,” Taylor said. “Everybody knows we’re good. We’ve got good four-star, five-star prospects. We’re coming in to win, get this ring for Georgia.”
