Dawg Post Thursday Recruiting Update:

Dawg Post gives an update on some top Georgia targets after their recent visit to Athens

A major Georgia target on the offensive side of the ball is Tucker (GA) receiver Josh Vann. The four-star had some great things to say about the Bulldogs.

“My favorite team growing up was actually Georgia.” Vann said. “I’m looking for somewhere I can play early but still learn the process and get a good education. So far Georgia stands at the top of the list. I have a great relationship with coach Smart and coach Coley.”

Vann is becoming one of the top receivers in the south, and plans to commit sometime before his senior season.

Dutchtown (GA) DB Trey Dean is one of the top 2018 defensive backs in Georgia. Dean recently visited Georgia, and got to spend some quality time with head coach Kirby Smart and defensive coordinator Mel Tucker. Dean is intrigued by the style of play and was told he could play both cornerback and safety in Athens. Dean claims to not have a leader at this moment, but the Bulldogs are sitting in a great spot at the moment. Florida, Auburn, and South Carolina are three other schools recruiting him hard as well. Dean will visit South Carolina or Auburn this weekend.

Ocean Lakes (VA) defensive end Jaevon Becton also visited Georgia this weekend. The 6-foot-4 240-pounder was impressed with the facilities and enjoyed his time speaking with many of the coaches including head coach Kirby Smart. Becton is releasing a top 5 soon, and the Bulldogs will be high on that list.

GAC (GA) DB/RB Kyler McMichael was also in Athens this past weekend. McMichael can play on either side of the ball, but it looks like Georgia is recruiting him to play in the secondary. The four-star was able to tour the campus, saw the new indoor facility, and was able to talk with some of the academic advisers. McMichael is wide open in his recruitment at the moment but Georgia looks to be gaining ground as of late.

2018 defensive end Malik Langham has Georgia very high on his list after his recent visit.

“The favorite part was the indoor facility, meeting the coaches and some of the players, going to the academic center and the basketball game.” Langham said. “I spoke with defensive line coach Travis Scott and we talked about the areas I’m good at my game and what I need to improve on. I also had a chance to speak with coach Schumann who recruits my area.”
