Dawg Post News and Notes: Kirby Smart Camp

There were plenty of Georgia targets hanging out today at Sanford Stadium during the Kirby Smart Camp on Sunday. Dawg Post got a great look at some of the top targets in attendance.

The most notable name out there today was Cairo (GA) linebacker Walter Grant.  The four-star is a major target for the Bulldogs in the 2017 class and certainly looks the part physically with his 6-foot-4 235-pound frame. Grant was having a good time and spent much of the morning joking and talking with outside linebacker coach Kevin Sherrer.  Georgia looks to be sitting in a very good spot for one of the best linebackers in the state.

 Miller Grove (GA) defensive end Brenton Cox Jr. is another player who spent a good amount of time around the coaches today. Cox is a good looking 2018 prospect and received a Georgia offer earlier this afternoon.  Look for the 6-foot-4 230-pound lineman to be a big target in the 2018 class. Cox also holds an offer from Alabama, Tennessee, Louisville, among others.

T.L Hannah (SC) lineman Stephon Wynn Jr. also collected a Georgia offer today.  He did not compete, but he spent plenty of time with multiple coaches during the camp.  He is another 2018 defensive line prospect that certainly looks the part physically, and you can tell right away why schools across the country are starting to recruit him hard.  Head coach Kirby Smart seemed to have a strong relationship with Wynn’s high school coach, so another visit to Georgia in the future would not surprise me.  Wynn’s father is a former Clemson tight end.

 Cedar Grove (GA) wide receiver Jadon Haselwood is a guy I’ve written about before and although he’s only a 2019 prospect, he is a major target for the Bulldogs.  He has good size at 6-foot-2 175-pounds, and has great speed as well.  Haselwood seemed very comfortable in Athens today, and spent much of his time hanging out with teammate Justin Shaffer, a 2017 Georgia commitment.  Look for Haselwood to continue to be a high priority for the Bulldogs moving forward.

 Colquitt County linebacker JJ Peterson was another major prospect hanging out today.  Rated as the number one outside linebacker in Georgia for the 2018 class, it’s very clear he is a big target for the Bulldogs.  Head coach Kirby Smart made sure to speak with him, and the two looked like they have known each other for years.  Peterson was very impressive last December at the Elite Junior Classic, and his recruitment has really started to blow up this spring.  He is another guy to remember the next two years.
