I was able to see Troup County (GA) lineman King Mwikuta in person this weekend and he is a terrific looking prospect. At 6-foot-4 210-pounds he's an outside linebacker who could possibly play defensive end down the road with more weight and muscle. He's long, quick, and athletic. According to scout.com, Mwikuta holds offers from Auburn, Louisville, Appalachian State, and Georgia State, but he also claims an offer from Alabama. The Bulldogs have not extended an offer yet, but that it one Mwikuta wants badly.
"A Georgia offer would mean a lot because I take a lot of heart into coach Smart and coach Sherrer the outside linebackers coach." Mwikuta said. "I spoke with some of their coaches this summer but have not heard from them recently. I'm hoping to get in touch with them soon."
The impressive sophomore also had some quick thoughts on Georgia's season so far.
"I think that UGA has to just start trusting coach Smart and believing in him." Mwikuta said. "He has been at a top University before at Alabama and he's a special coach."
I'm expecting more offers to come his way soon. Mwikuta and Troup County play Cartersville this Friday for the region championship.
Another 2019 name to know is Langston Hughes (GA) linebacker Charles Thomas. He totaled over 100 tackles as a freshman and has already accumulated offers from Clemson, Michigan, Tennessee, West Virginia, North Carolina, and Maryland. He looks impressive physically, and is well put together. Thomas has the potential to be one of the top inside linebacker prospects in the country for the 2019 class. Thomas, along with Langston Hughes teammate Malik Horton, were both impressive during the 7 on 7 tournament in Athens this summer. The Bulldogs need to offer soon.
Two 2019 DBs who impressed on Sunday were Grayson's Kenyatta Watson and Salem's Atermus McCorkle. Watson's recruitment has really picked up this year, earning offers from Tennessee, Vanderbilt, Nebraska, Boston College, among others. He's a long, athletic safety prospect with solid ball skills and great size at 6-foot-2 179. He has played behind five-star prospect Deangelo Gibbs this year, but that hasn't stopped teams from noticing the outstanding sophomore. McCorkle is a name you might not know now, but you will hear more about him sooner than later. He's a competitor with good ball skills and has the chance to see his recruitment pick up during the camp circuit this offseason.
I spoke with Owen Pappoe also and he's recovering from a minor groin injury at the moment so he did not participate in the camp. He told me he is trying to make it to the Alabama/LSU game this weekend.
