Perpetually embattled Georgia coach Mark Richt quietly secured a committed Monday: Faton Bauta, a kid being hailed as the “Next Tim Tebow.” Let’s get this out of the way first: Faton Bauta, is only the 65th-rated high school football player in Florida according to Rivals. Tebow, who accomplished tons at the high school level and was a highly-routed recruit, was ranked 3rd in the state, and 22nd in the nation. Everyone wanted Tebow; Purdue and Mississippi St., among others, were interested in Bauta. But the parallels to Tebow are incredible!
Both guys were high school QBs in Florida! (Though Bauta transferred there from Brooklyn.)
Both guys are nearly the exact same size (6-3, 220)!
Both guys are smart!
Both guys excel in the spread offense!
