Dawg Post Wednesday Update

Dawg Post takes a look at some of the top prospects in the state, and gives you an update on their recruitment.

The 2019 class might look far away, but Clarke Central (GA) running back Jonathan Sewell is a name to remember. The 5-foot-11 182-pound Athens native claims he recently received an offer from South Carolina, while gaining interest from Georgia, Auburn, Alabama, and Ohio State. The sophomore spoke with running backs coach Dell McGee a while back and was invited to one of Georgia's Kirby Smart camps this fall. Since then there has not been much communication, but it seems clear Sewell has a chance to be one of the top backs in Georgia for the 2019 class. He runs hard, breaks tackles, and follows his blocks well for someone so young. He doesn't have that elite speed, but still shows the ability to break off a big run. 

Georgia target Jeremiah Holloman told me this week he's "just relaxing right now" and focusing on high senior season and Newton. Holloman also said he would be attending the Auburn/Clemson game this weekend. Holloman committed early on to Michigan before de-committing, so the state's top receiver will make sure he's 100% sure before making another commitment. Georgia and Tennessee continue to be the leader with his recruitment, but Miami is in this also. 


Two receivers to keep an eye on this fall are Veterans (GA) receiver Jeremy Horton and Parkview (GA) standout Miles Marshall. Horton is a speedy 2018 receiver who claims one offer to Jacksonville State, but has the potential to garner more very soon. The 5-foot-9 175-pound athlete was named Player of the Week in his region for week 1, and I'm expecting him to have a big junior season. Marshall is a big 6-foot-3 200-pounder who was very impressive this summer in the Kirby Smart 7 on 7 tournament. I asked the Parkview coaches who I should be looking out for, and each immediately told me about Marshall. The 2018 sleeper prospect has 8 catches for 180 yards and three touchdowns on the season.

The Bulldogs are hoping for big news tomorrow night as running back target D'andre Swift announces his decision. The 5-foot-10 214-pound back from Philadelphia (St. Joseph's Prep) has been a major target for the Bulldogs for a while now, and would be an excellent addition to Georgia's class to go with current commit Toneil Carter. As of right now, Georgia is in a good spot with 33rd best prospect in America. Wide receiver Mark Webb, also from Pennsylvania, is strongly considering the Bulldogs as well. If Swift chooses Georgia, I like their chances with Webb also. Webb is ranked as a four-star prospect on Scout, and the third best receiver in the East.
