A new quarterback to know in Georgia is North Paulding's Ross Malmgren. The impressive sophomore had a great game Friday night against Woodstock going 21-25 for 419 yards and six touchdowns. He has a solid frame at 6-foot-2 195-pounds and shows great accuracy early. The super sophomore also has two great receivers to throw to in three-star Chad Terrell and junior Brian Mitchell. Mitchell in particular looked very impressive with his six catches for 198 yards and two long touchdowns. He showed breakaway speed and the ability to make big plays. Malmgren on the season is 75/102 (73.5%) for 1131 yards, 10 touchdowns, and four interceptions. I've been told that Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee, and Auburn are all showing interest, but none have offered just yet. It's clear to see that offers will eventually come in the future. Malmgren was in Athens two weeks ago and had the opportunity to talk with offensive coordinator Jim Chaney. I've been told the visit went well and that the Bulldogs seem interested.
Grayson defensive back Kenyatta Watson plans to visit Georgia for the Tennessee and Auburn game. Watson is a 6-foot-2 195-pound sophomore who currently plays behind Deangelo Gibbs. Ge has the potential to become of of the top defensive back prospects in Georgia over the next two years. Watson is also very close friends with future five-star linebacker Owen Pappoe. The two will be visiting Tennessee together this weekend. I'm expecting the 6-foot-1 208-pound Pappoe to visit Athens at least twice this season as of right now.
Another 2019 prospect to know for the future is Salem (GA) cornerback Artemus McCorkle. The 5-foot-11 180-pound sophomore looks impressive physically, and has three interceptions and two forced fumbles so far in five games. He is a guy still learning position, but he looked great at a camp this past summer as well. I'm expecting some smaller schools to seriously give him a look soon, with the potential for bigger schools to start showing interest down the road.
Buford running back Anthony Grant visited Louisville this past weekend and said he had a great time. "The environment was crazy", Grant said of the game. N.C State and Louisville have both offered the four-star back, with more offers on the way. Grant is the top ranked athlete in Georgia for the 2018 class.
