Dawg Post Monday Recruiting Update

Dawg Post takes a look at some top prospects in the state of Georgia.

One of the top sleeper athletes in Georgia for the 2018 class is Grayson (GA) receiver Jaylen Rivers.  The 6-foot-2 180-pound junior was excellent in the Sound Mind/ Sound Body camp earlier this summer.  Rivers recently camped at South Carolina and North Carolina, admitting that he spoke with both coaching staffs quite a bit after his workout. With all the talent on this Grayson team, I'm sure both staffs will be able to see him again this fall.  Look for Rivers to have a big junior season in 2016, and expect his recruitment to pick up as well over the coming months.

The 2020 quarterback class in Georgia has a chance to be very special. Marietta freshman QB Harrison Bailey continues to rack up offers, and will be a national recruit very soon.  Bailey has not played a down of high school football yet, but Alabama, Florida, LSU, Texas A&M, Ole Miss, North Carolina, and Miami have offered already.  This Marietta community loves their football, and they will have a star at quarterback the next four years. The 6-foot-4 206-pound Bailey has not been offered by Georgia just yet, but I think it's only a matter of time before the Bulldogs pull the trigger. 

Cartersville (GA) quarterback Tee Webb is another freshman who has a very bright future. The 6-foot-3 170-pound Webb will be the backup to five-star quarterback Trevor Lawrence the next two seasons, but the Canes are in very good hands with Webb for the 2018 and 2019 seasons.  Louisville has already offered, and Georgia offensive coordinator Jim Chaney is showing interest early.  Webb was in Athens for a camp this summer, and Chaney was able to watch him closely and had someone filming his throws.  After speaking with the coaches at Cartersville, coach Chaney knows all about the young freshman.  Look for the Bulldogs, as well as many other top programs, to start showing serious interest in Webb moving forward.

Milton (GA) freshman Blaine McAllister is a name to remember as well. The son of a former Buckeye, McAllister and his family recently moved to Georgia, and Blaine has already made a name for himself in the youth leagues.  McAllister has good size early at 6-foot-1 165-pounds, shows good arm strength and natural instincts for someone his age.  If he continues to improve and grow a little bit more, McAllister could be a major prospect in the coming years.

2019 athlete Jashawn Sheffield told me he "might" be visiting Georgia this week. Sheffield is one of the top athletes in the country for the 2019 class, with offers from Georgia, Clemson, Auburn, Florida State, Florida, Ole Miss, and Michigan. The 6-foot-2 175-pound athlete from Savannah (GA) Frederica Academy is cousins with current Georgia Bulldog commit Richard LeCounte. The Bulldogs are behind other schools at the moment for Sheffield it seems, but there is plenty of time for the Bulldogs to seriously get in the race.  If the visit happens, it could be a big one for the Bulldogs.
