Dawg Post Tuesday Recruiting Update:

Dawg Post takes a look at two impressive prospects from Georgia in the 2017 and 2018 class.

Not many have had a spring quite like Johns Creek tackle prospect Reuben Unije. The 6-foot-6 310-pound Unije has been receiving offers left and right recently, and is becoming one of the most sought after tackle prospects so far in the 2018 class.  Missouri, Oregon State, N.C State, and a few others were the first to over the talented junior, but since then some major programs have started to show serious interest.Since June 16th, Virginia Tech, Florida, and Alabama have all offered.

Unije has taken the process very seriously so far, and has seen many schools. While it's been a busy year so far, Unije still plans to visit Alabama again, Auburn, and Florida.

"I enjoyed the Alabama visit the most." Unije said. "I got along with the players and coaches well and the campus and facilities were beautiful.  I enjoyed both the business and family aspect of the visit."

While the Georgia Bulldogs have not offered yet, I would expect one in the future.  It seems like the Bulldogs will take at least two buy possibly three true tackle prospects in the 2017 class, so the staff is still deciding who to target at tackle for the 2018 class.  Unije is a prospect the Bulldogs will take a long look at moving forward, and possibly offer in the future.  I am expecting Unije to be a highly rated tackle prospect in Georgia next year.

Another interesting prospect for the 2017 class is defensive back Yusuf Corker.  The Bulldogs are targeting some elite prospects at defensive back for the 2017 class, but Corker said the Bulldogs are still showing strong interest.

"I feel like Georgia is a good school just far enough away from home." Corker said. "I work out with Aaron Davis some too and he tells me all about Georgia.  I've spoken to defensive coordinator Mel Tucker the most. I've visited Athens twice so far, and while I didn't see much of the campus, the thing I liked the most about the visit was sitting down in the room with the defensive backs and watching film. It was cool seeing some of the stuff they run and the game room."

It will be interesting to see where Corker is on Georgia's board with targets Deangelo Gibbs, AJ Terrell, Jamyest Williams, Latavious Brini still on the board at cornerback.  With offers from South Carolina, Clemson, Ohio State, Tennessee, and Alabama among others, it's easy to see why the Bulldogs offered the 6-foot 185-pound athlete. If Georgia misses on some of their big targets at defensive back, look for them to possibly turn up the heat on Corker.
