10 Prospects to Know:

Dawg Post breaks down 10 under the radar prospects to know ranging from the 2018 class to the 2020 class.

Prospects to know:

Artemus McCorkle:

McCorkle is an impressive 2019 DB who was outstanding last month in the True19 game. The 5-foot-11 180-pounder is all muscle and is about to see his recruitment pick up quickly. He has great ball skills at cornerback, and hits like a safety. He shows good footwork and technique for someone his age. McCorkle is gaining interest from many big programs including Florida and Tennessee. It’s only a matter of time before some major schools start to offer.

Jalen Huff:

The 2020 prospect out of Athens Academy could end up being a national prospect when his time comes. The 5-foot-11 165-pound Huff shows great instincts and ball skills, recording 20 tackles, 8 pass breakups, and 3 interceptions as a freshman starter.

Blaine Gibson:

The B.E.S.T Academy athlete can do it all, but he is one of the more underrated DB’s in the state. The 6-foot-1 175-pound athlete is another guy who can cover well, rarely misses a tackle, and has great ball skills. He doesn’t get beat deep, and does a great job of not interfering with the receiver when covering closely. Look for his recruitment to pick up soon.

Jaylin Brackett:

Bracket is the definition of a true thumper middle linebacker position. The 6-foot-0 235-pound defender isn’t the biggest guy, but he plays with violence and aggression. The Madison Academy (AL) prospect recorded 139 tackles, 6.5 sacks, 5 forced fumbles, and 4 fumble recoveries. He constantly finds a way into the backfield, and once he gets his hands on you it’s over. Brackett is very close to UGA signee Monty Rice and admitted that UGA was his dream school. Look for more schools to start showing interest and offering this spring.

Tyson Meiguez:

Another 2020 prospect, Meiguez was a force last year at defensive end, recording 50 tackles, 7 sacks, and 12 TFLs last year as a starting freshman. At 6-foot-2 205-pounds, he has plenty of time to get bigger, and runs the 40 in 4.6 seconds. The Our Lady of Mercy (GA) standout from Fayetteville, Georgia is an excellent pass rusher and has a chance to dominant this spring in the camp circuit. Expect him to be a major prospect down the road.

Jamious Griffin:

The Rome (GA) star had an excellent 2017 season as a sophomore, rushing for 1,443 yards and 25 touchdowns, leading the Wolves to a state championship. He doesn’t have blazing speed, but he runs hard between the tackles, shows good feet and quickness, and has great vision. He’s a durable back who gets tougher to tackle as the game goes on. Griffin is one of the top backs in Georgia for the 2019 class.

Kenyon Jackson:

Another 2019 Grayson product, Jackson is a receiver with great size and ball skills at 6-foot-5 191-pounds. He’s long, athletic, and recently earned his first offer from LSU. Look for Jackson, who also stars on the basketball court, to have a breakout junior season for the Rams this fall.

Kendrick Patterson:

Patterson is not a household name at the moment, but he will be one soon. Another 2020 prospect, Patterson is a big 6-foot-4 200-pound quarterback with a live arm who can run. The Pelham (GA) prospect already has the size to play at the next level, and has the chance to earn some big offers this spring. I was told me had an excellent day last weekend at the Valdosta MVP camp where he competed against kids much older than he was. Look for Patterson to become one of the top quarterbacks in Georgia sooner than later.

Quen Wilson:

The Mary Persons (GA) back is another sleeper running back in the 2019 class. The 5-foot-10 175-pound back is electric with the ball in his hands, has great balance, and has natural instincts as a runner looking for a hole. He catches the ball well out of the backfield, and can score any time he touches the ball. He does not have breakaway speed, but he’s fast enough to explode through and get into the secondary. He runs hard and is rarely brought down by just one defender. Wilson could see his recruitment pick up after a big junior season this fall.

Eddie Thomas:

This 2018 Carver (GA) DB shows lockdown tendencies at cornerback with his 6-foot-1 170-pound frame. He’s raw, but he’s a great athlete to is transitioning to corner after playing two years at receiver. He’s long, fast, has a solid vertical, can cover bigger receivers, and also runs track.
