Bulldogs Offer Two from the Sunshine State

According to scout's Corey Bender, The Georgia Bulldogs have extended two offers to defenders from the sunshine state. American Heritage (FL) defensive back Marco Wilson and Lake Worth (FL) defensive lineman Jonathan Garvin

It's clear that recruiting has become the focal point of the future as it pertains to the Kirby Smart era at Georgia, and the trend continues as the Bulldogs offer two defenders out of Florida.

Current Bulldog starters Sony Michel and Isaiah McKenzie were once stars for American Heritage in Plantation, Florida, and the Bulldogs are hoping to continue that trend as they offer defensive back Marco Wilson.  Wilson is coming off a knee injury, but should be ready for a breakout senior season in 2016. Georgia now joins Alabama, Clemson, Florida, Miami, Oklahoma, and Ohio State in offering the talented 5-foot-10 163-pound defensive back.  Wilson is ranked a four-star prospect by scout.com and the fifth-best cornerback in the state of Florida.

Another Florida native who picked up a Georgia offer recently is Lake Worth High defensive end Jonathan Garvin.  The 6-foot-4 220-pound pass rusher has good size and can really get after the quarterback.  North Carolina, Central Florida, N.C State, and Iowa State have all offered so far, but the Georgia offer is Garvin's first from an SEC school.  Garvin was recently named the defensive lineman MVP at the Miami Opening, and might see his recruitment explode very soon.

On film Garvin shows good quickness off the ball, and consistently gets into the backfield to either disrupt the quarterback or make a play on the ball carrier.  He plays with a high motor, and uses his size and strength to shed blocks with ease.
