Dawg Post Wednesday Recruiting Update

Dawg Post keeps you updated on all the latest news regarding UGA recruiting

Yesterday the Bulldogs offered one of the top offensive lineman in the country in Brunswick (GA) tackle Warren McClendon. The big 6-foot-5 280-pounder just finished his sophomore season and his recruitment is really starting to pick up. McClendon has ties to UGA as two uncles, Willie McClendon and Tyrone McClendon, as well as cousin Bryan McClendon, all played for the Bulldogs. Bryan is now the co-offensive coordinator at South Carolina. Warren told Dawg Post yesterday that he are very close with his family, and speaks with his uncles and cousins "all the time". Offensive line coach Sam Pittman and inside linebackers coach Glenn Schumann are the two coaches recruiting McClendon at this time.

Running backs coach Dell McGee was in Troup County yesterday checking in on 2019 defensive end/outside linebacker King Mwiuka and 2020 athlete Kobe Hudson. Mwikuta is a long and rangy prospect already who certainly looks the part as an SEC edge rusher. UGA has not offered but they are definitely interested. Mwituka is a prospect who could see his recruitment really pick up this spring and summer.

The Bulldogs sent another offer out yesterday to JUCO cornerback Keisean Dixon. The 6-foot 200-pound corner out of Arizona Western College (AZ) holds offers from South Carolina, Arkansas, Missouri, Colorado State, among others. The Bulldogs need to take 5 defensive backs in this class with two committed so far. Deangelo Gibbs is on top of the board and Georgia is still in good shape there. The staff is also trying to flip Tray Bishop from Auburn, but Florida is going all out for him as well. Kirby and company are also still recruiting Jamyest Williams very hard who is committed to South Carolina. Speedster Eric Stokes Jr. was also offered by Georgia recently, so he is a guy to watch as well. I don't believe the offer to Dixon means the staff doesn't like their chances with others, they just need to build depth, and you do that by offering more guys than usual. 

A guy that has been mentioned on Dawg Post multiple times in 2016, Parkview's Malik Washington, received an offer from Cincinnati. He's not big, but hes a versatily athlete with great ball skills who plays all over the field for the Panthers. Many still don't know much about him but that will change soon. He was invited to watch multiple Georgia games this season and visited twice towards the end of the year. He's another 2019 athlete who you will learn more about soon.

Two more 2019 players, Blessed Trinity running back Steele Chambers and tight end JD Bertrand, both received offers from Iowa State yesterday. More schools will offer once they see these kids in person. Both were crucial players for the Titans as sophomores this past season, and both could see more offers come there way in the next few months.
