Multiple Out of State Prospects High on UGA

Georgia is extending offers to multiple prospects outside of the peach state, and those prospects feel like the Georgia program is on the rise.

The Bulldogs extended an offer yesterday to 2019 offensive tackle Pierce Quick. The 6-foot-5 280-pound tackle from Hewitt-Trussville (AL) is quickly becoming one of the top tackle prospects in the south, and currently holds offers from Alabama, Auburn, Tennessee, Oregon, and now Georgia.  Quick admitted that he doesn’t know much about the program at this moment, but is looking forward to meeting coach Kirby Smart and offensive line coach Sam Pittman in person when he visits next Thursday. Quick is also looking forward to seeing the new indoor facility.

Another Alabama native to know is Maplesville athlete Nathaniel Watson. The four-star athlete has seen his recruitment pick up lately, and plans to visit Georgia, Mississippi State, and South Carolina this spring. Watson does not currently hold a Georgia offer, but that could change soon.

Edina (MN) offensive tackle Quinn Carroll is another impressive prospect giving Georgia a hard look. The 6-foot-6 290-pound tackle holds offers from Georgia, Auburn, Florida State, Ohio State, among others, and is planning to visit Georgia at the end of March. Carroll will be one of the highest ranked tackle prospects in the country for the 2019 class.

Another tackle prospect high on the Bulldogs is Glenwood (IL) prospect Will Putnam. The 6-foot-4 265-pound tackle holds a Georgia offer, and they are a team towards the top of his list. Putnam visited Georgia in November for the game against Auburn, and admitted that he loved the atmosphere, the fans, and saw all of the support for the football program. Putnam has family ties to Georgia, feels like the program is on the rise, and wants to visit again soon.

Douglas County (GA) defensive tackle Kyle Mann plans to visit Georgia on Saturday. While he’s only a 2020 prospect, Mann has a chance to be a top prospect in the state for his class. He currently holds offers from Kansas and South Florida, but will pick up more in the future. Mann took a visit to Auburn the first weekend in March.

As I’ve reported multiple times the past few months, the 2019 class in Georgia is absolutely loaded. The entire class is very close, and many of them including Owen Pappoe, Kenyatta Watson, Ronald Thompkins, Wanya Morris, Trente Jones, Kenyon Jackson, Steele Chambers, JD Bertrand, Derrick McLendon, and KJ Wallace will be visiting LSU together this weekend.

2018 defensive end Jaevon Becton admitted that Georgia is still a team high on his list, and he plan to visit Georgia again for a practice or the spring game.
