According to Swainsboro Forest Blade, Swainsboro HS ATH Lynquez Blair has signed a letter of intent to play football for Georgia State.
The 5’10, 175lbs Blair did a little bit of everything in 2010 as he played Quarterback, Slot Wide Receiver and Defensive Back in his HS career. He will likely be headed for the defensive side of the ball under the watchful eye of Coach Anthony Midget.
Blair had 44 catches for 886 yards and 9 TDs as a Junior playing WR but shifted to Dual Threat QB in 2010 accounting for 894 yards of offense and 13 TDs. Blair also served as Swainsboro’s primary kick and punt returner.
Lynquez is the 11th signee of the 2011 recruiting cycle and is expected to join the Panthers in June along with the other eight freshman. The Panthers have three scholarships remaining and have entertained several recruits during spring practice so far in the last week. Bill Curry and the Panthers coaching staff have also not ruled using the remaining grants on FBS transfers.
