A 2018 target that took a visit to Georgia this weekend was Peach County (GA) athlete Kearis Jackson. The top receiver in Georgia for the 2018 class told me "Coach Kirby (Smart) said I'm a priority for my class." Jackson is a speedy guy who said that even though it was hot out, he enjoyed the visit and was able to speak with Kirby and "the rest of the crew." Look for Jackson to continue to be a big target moving forward. According to the Peach County junior, the Bulldogs are recruiting him as an "athlete".
Nolan Smith is another big Georgia target, but he won't graduate until 2019. The 6-foot-2 210-pound defensive end holds offers from Tennessee, Georgia, Miami, and South Carolina. When speaking with Smith, it's clear the Bulldogs are in very good shape early in his recruitment. Smith had a few thoughts on Georgia's win over Nicholls State saying "It was a good game. Nicholls came to play and Georgia had a slow start." I'm expecting Smith to visit Georgia one or two more times easily this fall.
Another 2019 prospect to keep an eye on is St. Pius (TX) quarterback Grant Gunnell. The 6-foot-5 190-pound sophomore is getting looks from teams all over the country including Texas A&M, and Alabama. The Aggies have offered and Alabama is showing strong interest at the moment. So far Gunnell is 78/110 for 1262 yards and 16 touchdowns on the season. He's also run the ball 11 times for 73 yards and two touchdowns.
AJ Curry out of Stephens County (GA) is a guy who could have a breakout year in 2018. The quarterback/wide receiver has had a great year so far, especially last Friday when Curry caught three passes for 85 yards and a touchdown. He has great size at 6-foot-4 200-pounds who could also play tight end if needed.
