Dawg Post Wednesday Recruiting Update:

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

A new name to know for the 2019 class is Grayson WR Kenyon Jackson. The 6-foot-5 200-pound sophomore leads Grayson in touchdown receptions and is a threat to score from anywhere on the field. The sophomore has started the last two games for Grayson and will have the opportunity to have a breakout sophomore campaign the next two months.

Grady athlete Jaylen Rivers recently picked up an offer from Louisville. The 6-foot-2 195-pound athlete has been impressive at camps all summer, and showed good ball skills and the ability to get behind defenders as a receiver. Vanderbilt and Virginia have also showed interest in the sleeper 2018 prospect. Rivers plays wide receiver, safety, and linebacker for his Grady team. I'm expecting more offers to come his way in the future. 

Griffin Malik Route is another interesting prospect I've written about before. The speedy 5-foot-6 146-pounder might lack size, but he's an explosive athlete who can really make people miss with the ball in his hands. He has quick feet and change direction so fast, that it's tough for linebackers, safeties, and even corners to stay with. He was impressive at the MVP camp at Lovejoy this spring, as well as the 7 on 7 tournament in Athens this summer. Through 6 games, Route has 46 catches for 652 yards and seven touchdowns. Smaller schools should be all over him. The has the ability to be an impact slot receiver or punt returner somewhere at the next level. Griffin QB Tylan Morton, might be the most underrated signal caller in the state. Morton is a tall guy at 6-foot-5 183-pounds and has thrown for 2360 yards this season with 23 touchdowns to just four interceptions. Morton visited Georgia this past weekend.

A 2017 sleeper to keep an eye on is Our Lady of Mercy (GA) defensive end Robert Chery. The 6-foot-3 215 TE/DE has good spped for his size, and does a great job of getting inot the backfield on defense. He's a disrupted in the run game but also has good pass rushing skills. 

I spoke breifly with UGA linebacker target Monty Rice after his visit to Georgia this weekend. He told me he spoke with head coach Kirby Smart and his favorite part of the visit was the atmosphere at the game. Rice said he will be visiting Florida this weekend.
