News and Notes from Kirby Smart Camp

Dawg Post recaps a talented Kirby Smart camp in Athens

Visitor Notes:

The day's biggest visitor came from 2018 five-star Trevor Lawrence, one of the best quarterbacks in the country.  Lawrence seemed to enjoy himself around the coaches, and spent a good bit of time with 2018 Georgia commit Max Wray from Tennessee.  Lawrence was also joking around with current Georgia quarterback Jacob Eason, as well as many other current players.  Offensive coordinator Jim Cheney and head coach Kirby Smart both made sure to speak with Trevor 1 on 1 during the camp.  He is a MAJOR target for the Bulldogs in 2018.

Along with commit Max Wray, Warner Robins offensive lineman Christian Armstrong also visited Georgia today.  The massive lineman did not work out, but he was walking around and looked to be enjoying himself.  He is an extremely nice kid who plays hard, but needs to add a mean streak to his game.  The 6-foot-5 315-pound Armstrong currently holds offers from Florida, Alabama, Auburn, Florida State, and Georgia.  Look for Armstrong to be one of the top offensive line recruits in Georgia for the 2018 class.

2017 defensive line target Aubrey Solomon was also in town.  The 6-foot-3 304-pound lineman was seen walking around without his family and spending time with some current players.  While Georgia was on the outside looking in for the four-star not long ago, it seems like the Bulldogs have really turned up the heat.  His mother has a big influence on his decision, and she looked like she was having a great time too.

Cedar Grove receiver Jadon Haselwood is a major prospect in the 2019 class, and was given plenty of attention from the Georgia staff on his visit.  He has good size at 6-foot-2 175-pounds, but his speed is is what stands out the most.

Monty Rice is another visitor to keep an eye one.  The three-star inside linebacker from James Clemens HS in Alabama is liked by the Georgia staff, and the Bulldogs are looking for multiple inside linebackers in the 2017 class.  Keep an eye on his recruitment going forward.

Nolan Smith, 2019 linebacker from Savannah also visited.  The Calvary Baptist prospect currently has offers from Georgia, Miami, and South Carolina.  He is a prospect who has a chance to really breakout this upcoming season.

Camp Notes:

Georgia commit Jake Fromm and 2018 North Gwinnett quarterback Cade Fortin stood out the most during the passing drills.  Both look the part physically and threw the ball consistently well this afternoon.  IF the Bulldogs miss out on Trevor Lawrence and Emory Jones in the 2018 class, look for them to take a serious look at Fortin.  He is a guy who will continue to pick up offers down the road.

There was a very good group of receivers today led by Georgia commit Matt Landers.  The most recent Bulldog commit stand out physically at 6-foot-5 192-pounds, and showed the ability to make big catches down the field.  He made two of the best catches of the day deep down the field that caught everyone's attention.  He needs to continue getting bigger and polish his route running, but with good coaching, Georgia could have landed a major sleeper prospect in the 2017 class.

Four-star receiver Xavier Williams also impressed today.  He is not the biggest guy at 6-foot 180-pounds, but he showed great hands and the ability to create separation.  Georgia offered early this spring, and the Chaminade Madonna Prep prospect was getting a ton of attention from wide receiver coach Stacey Coley.  The Bulldogs want to add size at receiver for the 2017 class, but there are plenty of explosive but smaller receivers in the 2018 class.  He should be a top target for the Bulldogs in 2018.

Seth Williams from Paul W Bryant (FL) is another 2018 receiver to keep an eye on going forward.  Williams was easy to notice at 6-foot-3 202-pounds and got plenty of good reps throughout the day.  He looks the part, he runs well, and made a big impact today.  Georgia offered him early this morning, and he is a prospect to know for 2018. 

Luke Griffin from North Murray High school (GA) is a prospect that you will continue to hear more about.  He was a top performer in last week's MVP camp, and was getting attention from Jim Cheney after the camp.  He looks the part for sure at 6-foot-4 265, and will continue to grow as he is only a sophomore.  He will be a big Georgia target from here on.

A defensive lineman that impressed was 2018 Clinch County (GA) John Mincey.  He is 6-foot-5 209-pounds, and was easy to notice when watching the lineman go through drills.  Kirby Smart came over to talk to him briefly, and there is a ton of interest here.  He does not have a Georgia offer yet, but one could be coming in the future.
