Dawg Post Wednesday Recruiting Update:

If you follow high school football, you know the Roswell Hornets are good. VERY good. The undefeated Hornets are led on offense by tackle Jordan Tucker and quarterback Malik Willis. Willis, a Virginia Tech commit, and Tucker, a former Tennessee commit, each visited Georgia this past weekend. Willis plays quarterback for Roswell, but the Bulldogs are looking at him at defensive back. After watching him live multiple times and speaking with some close to him, I believe Willis' size and athleticism would translate well to the defensive side. He's a great athlete who consistently makes plays with his feet in the pocket at the quarterback position. He can elude sacks and take off for big gains when needed. Willis is currently committed to the Hokies to play quarterback, the position he truly loves. He could play defensive back or wide receive at the next level, but he's a quarterback at heart. 

As for Tucker, he certainly looks the part at 6-foot-6 320-pounds. He's dominant in the run game, and has good fit for someone his size. South Carolina, Missouri, Louisville, Colorado State, among others have offered the three-star prospect. Tucker is ranked the sixth-best offensive tackle prospect in Georgia for the 2017 class. I saw Tucker at the final Kirby Smart camp this summer, but he was not participating at the camp. It would not surprise me at all to see Georgia offer down the road. The staff is clearly going after bigger guys on the offensive line, and Tucker has that size. 

Safety Xavier McKinney does have a Georgia offer, and the staff would love to add him to this 2017 class. The former Alabama commit projects as a safety at the next level, but plays in all phases of the game for his Roswell team. Georgia is still in this, but Clemson and Florida look like major threats at the moment. 

In other recruiting news, 2019 star Jashawn Sheffield tells me he plans to visit Ohio State on November 5th and "possibly" visit Georgia for the game against Auburn. This is a prospect I think could be a star at the next level, and he's already a national prospect early as a sophomore. Teammate Jaylin Simpson is also a major prospect with offers from Ohio State, LSU, Florida, and Tennessee. Georgia hasn't offered yet, but it will happen eventually. The two are close friends and take visits together. Getting both on campus would be huge for Georgia moving forward.
