Warren McClendon, 2019 OL, Brunswick (Ga.)

Dawg Post Thursday Recruiting Update

Dawg Post takes a look at a few top prospects in Georgia for the 2016 season.

Jeremy Smith out of Jenkins (GA) in Savannah is a 2019 prospect to know for the future.  He’s a powerful running back at 6-foot-1 180-pounds who has some speed as well.  He shows good strength when running the ball and does a nice job of running through arm tackles.  He also shows great vision for a back his age.  He sees his blocks well and always has the potential to break off a big run.  Look for him to be one of the top sophomore backs in the state this upcoming fall.  He has the potential to be a highly rated prospect down the road.

Another 2019 prospect to know is Brunswick (GA) offensive tackle Warren McClendon.  The massive 6-foot-4 270-pound lineman is already hearing from schools across the south, and currently holds offers from Alabama, South Carolina, Kentucky, and Tennessee.  The home state Georgia Bulldogs have not offered yet, but there is a good chance one is coming in the future.

“A Georgia offer would mean a lot.” McClendon said. “I like how offensive line coach Sam Pittman pushes you when you work with him.  I’ve worked out with him twice now.”

McClendon admitted that South Carolina and Tennessee are the schools he is hearing the most from at the moment. He is another guy who could be a national recruit in the 2019 class.

Another sleeper prospect in 2017 to keep an eye on is North Atlanta linebacker Majeste Hansberry.  He’s a little light at 6-foot-2 211-pounds but he’s aggressive, instinctive, and showed good cover skills at multiple camps this spring.  Georgia State and Troy are showing interest at the moment, but more interest could come this fall. 

Archer athlete Taiyon Palmer is a kid who could be getting more attention this fall.  The 2018 athlete is versatile and can play on both sides of the ball.  Duke has already offered, as has Indiana.  Vanderbilt and Navy are showing strong interest.  Look for Palmer to have a big junior season this fall.
