Worth Noting

Holds a 3.7 GPA, and it shows on the field. Smart player who knows how to use his size and talent and take direct angles to ballcarriers. Lee graduates in December, which will allow him to get a jump start on his college career. Parents have been Bulldogs fans for years and attended many Georgia games in Athens. The big man played 75-80 snaps in Buford's 42-21 win over Texas powerhouse Mansfield Timberview. "He was dominating on both sides of the ball," said Buford coach Jess Simpson. Lee finished the game with three tackles for loss and a sack.

Player Performance


An aggressive defender who is committed to getting to the ball. A run-stopper. Outstanding at pursuing and making plays down the line. Strong enough to win one-on-one battles and mean enough to be intimidating. Lee has the kind of motor that makes coaches smile. He plays with a ferocity that puts him positions to make plays.


Can he get to the quarterback? While a force against the run, he must get better at putting pressure up the middle to be a factor in obvious passing situations.

How It Went: Georgia commit a regular fan on Saturday in Athens

9:40 p.m. Sunday, September 7, 2008

Buford defensive tackle Dallas Lee blended in with the crowd in Athens on Saturday during Georgia’s 56-17 victory over Central Michigan. “I watched the game from the stands,” said the 6-foot-3, 305-pound Lee, who committed to the Dogs in April. “I went with a friend and their family. I hung out with them and we tailgated.” “It was fun. It was an awesome game. I noticed that a lot of people stayed around after the game.” Lee, a member of the AJC’s The Georgia Top 150, said he’ll be back at Sanford Stadium for the Alabama game later this month. “And I might go to the South Carolina game [on Sept. 13 in Columbia] with my friends,” he said.

Buford's Lee "happy" with UGA

2:27 p.m. Friday, August 22, 2008

Buford junior defensive tackle Dallas Lee chose Georgia over programs such as Florida, Florida State and Tennessee. But the decision to commit to the Dogs was a difficult one. "Yeah, it was pretty hard at first, " admitted Lee, who will likely play center or guard. "But Georgia turned out to be a perfect fit. They have everything in a school that I wanted. "And I really like coach [Mark] Richt and [offensive line] coach [Stacy] Searels. Lee broke the news of his commitment to Searels. "I told him I want to play in Athens for the next four years, " Lee said. Buford coach Jess Simpson is confident the Bulldog Nation will be excited to have Lee as part of its 2009 recruiting class. "Georgia is getting an extra tough, hardnosed lineman, " Simpson said. "He's a 6-foot-3, 300-pound kid who moves well and has great knowledge and understanding of the game."

"Dawg Night" attracts 86 prospects to UGA

2:23 p.m. Friday, August 22, 2008

Georgia coach Mark Richt welcomed 86 high school players for "Dawg Night" prospect camp on July 18. The most celebrated prospect in attendance was Branden Smith of Atlanta's Washington High. Smith, considered one of the nation's top cornerbacks with around 25 offers, opted not to participate in the camp. Defensive end Abry Jones of Northside-Warner Robins, who has committed to Georgia, was also an observer. However, three Georgia commitments decided to go through the workouts: lineman Dallas Lee of Buford, linebacker Michael Gilliard of Buford, and quarterback Zach Mettenberger of Oconee County. Mettenberger looked much sharper and crisp with both his technique and throws that he did at another Georgia camp earlier in the summer. He seemed to quickly develop chemistry with wide receiver Rantavious Wooten of Belle Glades, Fla. Wooten was perhaps the camp's most impressive player with his speed and quickness, attracting the attention of Richt and other members of the Georgia staff.
