DawgPost Recruiting Update

There are quite a few players in the state of Georgia who are earning major offers and slowly becoming national recruits. These players currently do not hold Georgia offers, but are getting offers from programs across the country.

Chad Terrell, WR, North Paulding (GA):

Terrell is a prospect I've seen a couple times this spring, and today he received an offer from Oregon.  While he doesn't hold a Georgia offer, he is the top ranked receiver in the state that doesn't have one.  He has good size at 6-foot-3 208-pounds, and is more of a possession receiver than a speed guy.  He showed good hands during drills at this past MVP camp, and was impressive during Rising Seniors week back in December.

The Bulldogs are going hard after Newton (GA) receiver Jeremiah Holloman, and currently hold verbal commitments from in-state receivers Trey Blount and Xavier Jenkins.  Terrell might be behind a few guys on Georgia's board at the moment, but anything is possible in recruiting.  Oregon, Ole Miss, South Carolina, Mississippi State, Georgia Tech, among others have offered the three-star prospect.

Corey Reed Jr., WR, Roswell (GA):

Another receiver in Georgia who has had a nice spring is Roswell's Corey Reed Jr.  The transfer from Mays has earned offers from Cincinnati and Tulane recently, with more possibly on the way. Scout's eighth-ranked receiver in the state, Reed has good size at 6-foot-2 194-pounds, and has been impressive during camps all spring.  I spoke with my coaches who really like Reed and believe he can be an impact player at the next level.

Like Terrell, I believe the Bulldogs have prospects higher on their board, but Reed is a prospect who has the potential to start earning bigger offers soon.  He will have the chance to have a breakthrough senior season at Roswell, as well as helping them get back to the state championship.  Reed currently holds offers from Cincinnati, Tulane, Georgia Southern, Colorado State, Kentucky, Louisville, Syracuse, Illinois, among others.

Avery Showell, ATH, Cartersville (GA):

One of the most impressive players I saw during spring practice the past few weeks was Cartersville linebacker Avery Showell.  Showell is a versatile athlete who can make plays on both sides of the ball.  The 6-foot-2 195-pound Showell will play linebacker and receiver this upcoming season for the 'Canes.  On defense he shows good instincts and quickness, as well as the ability to make a big hit.  He stands out physically, he's lean, and just looks the part.   Offensively he showed good hands during practice and the ability to run for yards after the catch.  He's tough to bring down, and was easy to notice in practice.

Showell’s recruitment has picked up drastically this spring, adding offers from Minnesota, West Virginia, and Rutgers this month.  Look for more to be on the way.

Emmanuel McNeil, DT, Central Gwinnett (GA):

McNeil is a strong defender ranked as the third-best defensive tackle prospect in the state of Georgia.  While he doesn’t hold an offer from the Bulldogs, major programs like Florida, Florida State, Ohio State, Michigan, and LSU have all pulled the trigger.

McNeil is slightly undersized at 6-foot-3 278-pounds, which gives a reason as to why the Bulldogs have not offered yet.  He is a good looking prospect though, and led a strong Central Gwinnett defense deep into the state playoffs last season.
