Jalen Carter. Jordan Davis. Travan Walker. Julian Rochester. Tire West.
This last name may not be known to Georgia fans at this time, but it won’t be long. The 4-star South Georgia boy from Tifton made his decision in college on Wednesday.
He chose to be a bulldog in Georgia. West’s name already belongs to this group of names, which are among the most impressive prospects for a defensive line in the interior, who have committed to play for Kirby Smart in Georgia.
This was not a fickle choice, as he had long planned to do so on this day. He chose this day to celebrate and honor his mother Savina Batel with his commitment.
“My mother means everything to me,”
Recruits just know sometimes. He did it here.
“I seem ready to just go home and have a place I can call home,” he said in late October.
What were you looking for in school?
“Somewhere I feel at home,” West said at the time. “Somewhere I feel like I belong. I can change, change everything in my life and grow up as a man. “
He said Georgia, Auburn, Kentucky, Ohio and Florida made him feel that way.
“Georgia is really the one that connects me the most with all this,” he added.
The 6-foot 4,275-pound junior ranks No. 4 in the DT country and No. 43 as the overall set or the 2022 cycle in the 247Sports Composite rankings.
This line for juniors for 2020 looked like this: 31 solo fights, 17 assists, 16 fast QBs, 12.5 sacks, 8 TFLs and two forced shuffles.
The B-student is already extremely strong. He said earlier this season that his net power is now exactly at the limit of 350 or 360 pounds.
His full junior film is not yet available, but check out this play in which he sparked a very good state championship, fighting for the Crisp County offensive line in his early teens.
Why was Georgia the move for Tire West?
The three-year-old starter in Georgia’s highest school classification will fit into the classic archetype of recruiting in South Georgia: Definitely. Humble. Physically. Hello.
He is also very right about that. When DawgNation visited him in late October, he had a certain attitude toward bulldogs.
This is largely due to defensive line coach Trey Scott. West said Scott told him that the current Georgia, senior DE Malik Herring, is a good player, compared to his skill set.
The herring, which is rated DE, is the country’s overall outlook for 154 of the 2017 Mary Persons elections.
“It’s like when I’m talking to Coach Scott, I’m super,” West said. “Every time I talk to him. He excites me like playing for Georgia one day or being on one of his defenses or being his coach. “
What is the best thing the West likes about UGA?
“The big thing for me is like the program,” West said. “I like this program. This program will prepare you for college and then after college. “
He also firmly believes in late October that he will be ready to commit in December. And here we are today. There has always been a high degree of simplicity and honesty in recruiting him. This is not the norm nowadays.
West has never been a man to seek attention or maintain rival fan bases foaming at the mouth.
“He is as humble as a child as we are,” said Tifft County coach Ashley Anders.
West moved Georgia to the country’s number 4 recruitment class for the 2022 cycle (247Sports Team Composite) with its decision. The Bulldog’s four commitments are all homegrown prospects for Peach State. They all rank among the 125 best recruits in the country.
It is now the second highest rated UGA set in the 2022 class. Deyon Bouie, the 5-star ATH, is still among the best UGA commitments. West has joined Bouie and several other key Georgian commitments, or 2022 goals, on at least one trip to Athens for an independent visit this season.
Georgia now tracks only the states of Ohio (nine commitments), LSU (seven commitments) and Penn State (seven commitments), respectively, in the ranking for the 2022 class. “Bucky” has six promises, which ranks among the 125 recruits in the country. LSU also has four that meet these criteria.

Good things for Tire West
There is an inscription in letters around his wrist. It reads as follows: We> I
“It’s like I’ll always think about my team before I think about myself,” said Tire West. It’s just there so I can look at it every day.
Anders shared another gem of a story about Tifton 5’s valuable technology. When you listen to it and anyone who knows it well, these three words summarize the best “3” technique in college.
Strong. Fast. Dangerous.
Kirby Smart’s first interaction with this young man probably exceeded even his wildest expectations.
“Coach Smart asked Tire what his favorite thing in the defensive game was,” Anders said.
“Squeeze and spill,” West replied.
This is where the edge defender squeezes the gap by diving inside an ejection unit when playing with power. They fuck up blocking tasks by exchanging gaps and force the ball out where the already unlocked defender can play. Jimmy Johnson’s defenses made this technique famous.
According to the story, Smart looked at the West funny when he said that.
“Coach Smart said you know I don’t think I’ve ever had a protective end to answer that question,” Anders said. “He said most of them would say pass, firing the quarterback and things like that. But Tyree knows that our defense was created to do that. He is very selfless.
However, his most important films show a little more there.
“But he will spill the ball with him many times and then he will handle it.”
The intelligence report for Tire West
Anders, his head coach, knows what a high school college student looks like. For several years he was a protected coordinator in South Georgia, Murray and Valdosta.
There is a certain advantage that the boys from South Georgia seem to be playing with the main SEC proposals. West has it. He is the engine of his team.
Be sure to catch this game on his second lane, where he throws a 150-pound receiver about 20 yards down the field. He did what he was trained to do on a balloon pass. Then the effort took over.
It was no accident.
“The tire is a real help,” Anders said. “He’s one of those guys who can be said to have received all this recognition for being young. People may get the misconception that he is a prima or something. All I can say is come and watch him train. The speed at which he trains is just like a game. We will train and I will look up and see him chasing the ball 30 meters down when playing with a pass. ”
“We always live here according to the old Chinese proverb. As you train, you will play. He always practices the way he will play. ”
How does he play? Anders came up with a suitable visual effect.
“Many times you end up with your defender’s coaches, comparing the athletics of your great defenders to an animal,” Anders said. The tire would be a rhino.
The second-rate accent film embedded below for West also has many of these Rhino plays.
