Dawg Post Tuesday Recruiting Update***

Dawg Post catches up with some 2018 and 2019 prospects about who came by their school before the dead period.

Peach County receiver Kearis Jackson, a top Georgia target for 2018, told me receivers coach James Coley came by his school a couple weeks ago. Jackson said he likes Coley as a person, and would enjoy playing with him one day. Coach Summer from Florida and coach Hartley from Miami also stop by Peach County recently to check on the junior playmaker.

 2018 DB target Myles Sims tells me Georgia came by his school last Thursday. Sims is a long and rangy defensive back with offers from across the country. Notre Dame, Michigan, Ohio State, Mississippi State, and N.C Sate all came by Westlake before the dead period.

 GAC lineman Christopher Hinton confirmed that Virginia Tech, Michigan, Michigan State, North Carolina, and Northwestern all came by the school to check on him and other GAC players before the dead period. Hinton is a standout lineman in the 2019 class.

 North Gwinnet back Tyler Goodson is a new name to know. Tennessee, Auburn, Florida, North Carolina, Michigan State, Clemson, Penn State, among others are showing strong interest in the 2019 back. Goodson is 5-foot-10 182-pounds and was selected to play in the Elite Sophomore Classic game later this month.

 2018 offensive lineman Reuben Unije tells me Michigan, Ohio State, Georgia, Miami, LSU, Oregon, and many more came by IMG Academy to see him the past couple of weeks. Unije does not currently hold a Georgia offer, but the former Johns Creek lineman holds offers from Alabama, Florida, Virginia Tech, among others.

 Another back in the 2019 class getting attention is Clarke County (GA) back Jonathan Sewell. Kirby Smart came by the school last week so talk about grades, recruitment, and where things will go. Running backs coach Dell McGee will head up the recruitment. Sewell is one of the top sophomore backs in the country and just finished a fantastic season that really got him noticed. Clemson coaches also came by the school to see him last week. Sewell visited Georgia multiple times this year and is certainly a name to know for the future.

 Defensive line coach Tracy Rocker went to Upson Lee last week to check on 2019 lineman Travon Walker. The 6-foot-4 242-pound Walker will be a major target and national prospect in the 2019 class.

 Kirby Smart came by Carver last week to see 2018 athlete Quindarious Hale. Hale does not have a Georgia offer at the moment, but the four-star is one to watch moving forward. Florida State, Auburn, among others have offered.

 Auburn, Georgia Tech, and Wake Forest were the “biggest” schools that came by McEachern to see 2018 receiver Genuine Potts. The 6-foot-3 197-pound Potts will continue to get strong looks from major programs, and could see his offer list pile up this offseason.
